RC PLANE - VERY soon coming!

Hi all!!!

I'm here to announce that RC PLANE is arriving to the appstore! Soon some game play videos will be available, but in the meantime here are the main features and some screenshots.

Quote:
Fly and RC Plane through a realistic country side scenario.
Realistic flight, and great looking 3D graphics will amuse every kind of player.
Fly through a Barn, a windmill and some misterious spots sparse trough the scenario.
Game features:
- 2 realistic RC planes
- 3 and 4channels configurations
- 3 camera angles (follow, fixed, inside)
- Both touch and accelerometer controls
- Accelerometer calibration options
- Compass to guide player
- Mini map of the scenario
RC PLANE will come in 2 versions, the first one available will be sold for 0.99$ at launch and will have "just" free flight mode (no game mode), while soon after RC PLANE "Complete" will be released for 2.99$ and will include free flight and 2 game modes.

Hope you will enjoy it and provide feedback, ideas or whatever comes to your mind!

I think it would be better if you put the one with only free flight mode for 99c and made a $1.99 DLC for the 2 game modes.

Yes we are aiming for that, but it will not be available from version 1. We still have to finish solving some issues with in-app purchases and application behaviour on devices with OS 2.2.1. BUT surely we will update the game with the possibility to purchase add-ons directly from the 0.99$ version
Thanks for feedback / suggestion!!!

I hope the controls will be better than RC Heli's...

I agree, the controls were too shaky.
But this looks great

Great attention was put on accelerometer calibrations and settings compared to RC HELI (which will be upgraded with the new settings as soon as possible). The sticks controls are essentially the same as in RC Heli.
2 Planes will be available at launch, and the beginner should be quite easy to control.
More info and especially some footage will be available VERY soon

looks great, but those touch controlls don't look too good... (I HAVE played the lite version of RC Heli!)
