I have yet to meet a plance racer done right. I would wait for some reviews first.

Controls?

Are there only gyroscopic controls? I hope not...

The game has button controls as well, but they feel a bit stiff and there are no sensitivity settings

This looks really fun, I love the old school planes.

I think it'll be better that it's less open world and a more defined space / races, should keep things more active.

Woohoooo

First off, I instabuy every Sky Gamblers game, but I was worried about this one. I wasn't sure the racing aspect would be interesting enough (even as someone who lives near the Reno Air Races). Nevertheless, I bought, and played, and played, and played... this is definitely worth it! Really fun. I had to turn the controls to simulation in order to be able to make some of the turns in the courses. No problem, as that's the control scheme I use in the other SG games.

I know there is Gamecenter but are there achievements?

Watched both videos, all I saw was the Game Center banner. If anyone bought or owns this game, pls respond.
