- Removeable rotor shadows.

- Low and High skids options

Stability Improvements

- Arcade mode is available for beginners

- New Rigid cruise feature, allow the stability to progressively increase from hover to cruise, allowing longer flights without

need of keep fighting with controls all the flight, while keeping the hover challenge intact.

SmartMenu Tecnology

- Clickable external areas for increased interactivity.

- You can enter inside of helicopter by clicking on doors

- Report menu with (Min and Max G Force, Datcom, MGT, TRQ or NG exceedances, Number of crashes)

DreamEngine sound plugin

- Over +50 sounds included

- 3D directional sounds

- Compatible with Rapture3D plugin (same used by codemasters)

- Custom sounds for switches, buttons and circuit breakers

- Realistic exterior and interior sounds

- Simulation of all the Horns and behavior of those


Conex has produced a great video as well:

I have waited for the Bell 407 for a long time!


The video looks nothing short of stellar!


I can't wait until the release date.


Great Job Dreamfoil Creations :)
