Only from some people though. I have personally never made a microtransaction in a game. You either let me pay for the game and play or play the game for free or I move on. I'm not paying for a different gun or a different colored cape. Or in game cash (GTA V). I love AccuRC but I won't be buying different heli models or scenes or whatever ... I'll just use the stock content. I would pay for a major new version, however, as that makes sense to me (Madden 20 vs Madden 21, for example).

it's good to hear that there are still plenty of new sales. To me there are only two good value for money sims on the market, Heli-X and AccuRC.

I think most of the AccuRC supporters would not mind paying micro transactions for features they wanted. At least I would not.

I would be really peed off if you guys went under. I remember being seriously concerned when I thought V2.0 was not going to make it. We got a great sim now. Start charging for some additions.

I can see that its difficult to change a business model once started.
You could at least poll your user base on steam. Why not float the idea?.

I still say I would pay for AccuRC 3. It makes sense to me. Its not like Grand Theft Auto IV owners received Grand Theft Auto V for free... I would not pay for micro-transactions though. Now, if you had DLC packs with new planes and helis or something.. that would be a different story but that isn't considered micro-transactions I don't believe.

I think a lot of people would have the same point of view as you. And there is nothing wrong with that.
But having the option to purchase additional features, helis, scenes etc would really appeal to some people.

It does not have to stop the free upgrades for life promise. Upgrades would just be used to keep the sim upto date with latest OS changes etc but special content could be a separate thing entirely.

I am not charging for any of this business advice btw.

AccuRC is such a great value. Kudos for bringing such a great experience to us!

As it stands, who can argue with the current pricing model? Would you really want to pay piece by piece:

— AccuRC Heli Basic ($15): includes one model, Field & no model adjustments. Runs in 1080 mode only
— AccuRC Standard ($30): includes 5 models an 3 Field of choice at time of purchase. Allows for model tuning.
— AccuRC RC Deluxe ($60): ...basically what we have today...
— Extra models/Fields ($5-10): For the Standard/Basic editions. This could be subsidized by companies to promote their products
— Training modules ($20): Optional training modules to assist in doing ‘Slow Piros’ orientation and other drills. i.e.

Inverted hovering really is the "Alice in Wonderland" rabbit hole of RC helis. Once there, the world is never the same again. So, to quote the film The Matrix, "Buckle your seatbelt Dorothy, 'cause Kansas is going bye-bye".

  • slow upright piros
  • upright lazy 8s
  • flips & rolls
  • slow inverted piros
  • upright forward circles
  • upright backward circles
  • inverted backward circles
  • inverted forward circles
  • true 8s
  • funnels
  • funnel 8s
  • transitional 8s including funnels

Other exercises:

  • 8 point slow piro hover
  • compass piro hover
  • piro circles
  • loops
  • hurricanes
  • auto-rotation


Tracking hover progress:

Keep a log of:
  • session date/time/length
  • orientation (upright/inverted)
  • direction (CW/CCW)
  • sim speed
  • # crashes/out of area
  • comments (computer collective / computer rudder / notes on session)

All with one buying.
if you buy ACCUrc 2.0 i must be aple to have all update of accu rc 2.0
If exit accurc 3.0 i pay a small amount and i go next.
is nice withe this simulator come update but i have never paid one micro transaction.
Is equal game gamble, is equal to the machines, scratch and win, it is evil.
On micro transaction there are children that have expend a fortune

It is not a subscription. It is a one time purchase. Yes it includes the T-Rex 600 DFC.
