Default RealFlight Drone?

I saw this on the towerhobbies site with a release in late Oct, anyone have any info on it?

Would it be better to learn to fly quads over the regular RealFlight 7.5?

Personal opinion.........if you have some experience and are a confident plank and heli pilot...........the quad, multi-rotor sims I've flown (older Phoenix, Real Flight) beta-proto types, will not be as much fun or help as purchasing an inexpensive Blade (or other knock-off) quad to learn on..........they all are quite user friendly, parts are everywhere and nothing can substitute for real-time hands-on experience......JMO.....!

For + $150.00, you can buy two Blade Nano QX BnF's........unless of course, you want the sim for other reasons besides learning to fly quads.....

I still believe flying the "real" thing will get you more excited and up-to-speed for a quad faster than any sim........even without prior heli experience.........even the little quads teach orientation, throttle management and axis control quite safely for even guys without plank experience...........

I think it's a mistake to split Realflight up. It's had a big impact on model aviation and has drawn people to parts of the hobby they'd have never explored otherwise.

Hopefully Drone is just a stripped down version for those only interested in multirotors and Realflight 8 includes all of the content from it.

Not to mention the Realflight multirotor flight model is just not there yet in terms of realism. Freerider is better for FPV racing practice and it's only $5... with a free demo

For camera work, it still sucks as there's not an option for dual-operator practice. I asked for it a long time ago but no developments yet
