Review: I have bad news, ‘aerofly RC 8’ isn’t for you! When I say “you” I mean average VR user, the average flight-sim user. This is a simulation designed to perfectly mimic the control of RC vehicles like helicopters, planes and quad-choppers. These…”toys” cost thousands and sometimes tens of thousands, so paying a tiny fee of £64.99 to practice their control of it is nothing. Sure, the average Joe will still enjoy playing around with this, but it is not for them, it is for the RC enthusiasts and nothing more. Heck, it doesn’t even support our VR motion controllers because it was not built for VR as such. In fact, you can’t use most of this program in VR. But those who want a little depth-perception, as well as 3D, can use it.

My personal opinion is that it looks amazing and probably feels ultra-realistic and responsive, but I don’t know for sure and I certainly wouldn’t recommend this to anyone other than dedicated RC enthusiasts. It’s just not for the average VR user or flight sim fan at all and is never going to be, but to someone, this will be mind-blowing. …that person wasn’t me.
