Burning up my laptop
My old simulator for my windows 7 stopped working after 3 years. Since I just bought a MacBook Air, I thought I would purchase this simulator.
Installed it, works great, very fun, and very happy with the simulator.
My problem is when I run this simulator, my laptop gets REALLY, REALLY HOT. The battery will go from full to system shutdown in one hour. Without running this program, I can work on my laptop and run a boat load of apps literally all day long. My MacBoor Air laptop only gets hot and burns the battery when I use this app.
At this point, I have to decide whether I will take the chance to fry my new $1000 laptop to run this $40 simulator. Any reply or suggestion from the manufacturer would be appreciated. Would love to use this app some more if I could be assured it will not fry my laptop.
Follow-up review —— still totally happy with this program
My great experience with the Standard version prompted me to upgrade to the pro version. Very glad I did. The realistic physics tailored to each model is further enhanced in the Pro version by the ability to easily change model characteristics——size, engine power, weight, C.G. and many other features--- with every conceivable type of aircraft in exceptional scale detail. You can essentially duplicate your own planes in virtual form, to practice with. I have found the replication of model behavior in the simulator is very close to the actual permormance and behaviors of my own planes. Graphics details are amazing, scenery and all visual features extremely realistic. Flying on the simulator is addictive. Great for hand-eye coordination practice.
Would like to add that Aerofly technical support was very quick and responsive when I had a small glitch----they helped solve a download problem with my Macbook Air with a step by step procedure that worked perfectly.
Love this Simulator!!
I have been flying RC for about a year. Nothing fancy, high wing slow flying planes. Just getting into trying to fly upside down and do rolls nice and smooth. Also just bought a 3D Parkmaster Pro. Borrowed a friends simulator which I used on a Windows machine, but I have an IMAC and wanted to use it. Did some research and found this app. Wow, so awesome. Much better than the simulator I was using. I just got the standard version and what’s nice is you can upgrade at any time - which I will do now that I know how great this one is. I have a Spectrum DX6 but no USB cord to plug it into the computer. But, my PS4 controller works fantastic. So I am using that for now.
If you are skeptical about this app, don’t be. It is great and has already made me a better pilot. THANK YOU AEROFLY!!!!!
