Quick Start Advice:
Don't stay on the deck too long or you will get into traffic, and possibly cause an accident, the replay plane is set to about a 2m30s loop, if you land, you can hold eject during recovery to avoid replay, and continue to Taxi. other wise the tape will record from the point you exit the replay, this is useful for syncing your replay plane to your pace, you should keep a minimum of 15sec interval when landing with traffic ahead but 30sec is recommended
if you 'swipe' a control button you can lock it on, this is not a bug, tap it again to turn it off

weapons are a sneak preview, wont cause damage,but you can practice with your wing-man,

Just a fast switch from 4.99 to free and to 9.99 according to AppZapp. I do own the app although i never paid for it so I obviously got it while it was free. Looking at the prices in AppZapp they keep changing the prices for both the iPhone and iPad version quite often.
