    Hi Arthur,

    Sorry about my late answer, but I was on the grass with my real RC planes !

    Ok with the files names on lowercase.

    Hello Arthur,

    It seems is not an Imac problem, because the RC7 ( on Imac ) version of these planes are working well.

    It seems the RC8 version of these planes are the main problem.

    Globally, when you develop a program, whatever it is, you have to test all the versions on all the platforms available.

    Today, when I want to fly the planes, I use RC7 on Imac, that all !



    And ?

    For each model, I install the RC7 and RC8 version.

    RC7 and RC8 are installed on the same Imac, and the same user.

    No problem on RC7, no planes on list on RC8.

    Of course, is not the first time that I install planes and the problem is the same for 4 planes.

    No problem encountered with other users planes from other sources.

    Does the author try these add-ons on RC8 Imac before making them available?



    Good morning,

    I say :

    On the same scenery and plane, the display is more smooth on RC7 than RC8.

    Some times, the scenery is jerky on RC8. ( forest, trees )

    This never happen on RC7.

    But I heard that you have changed the graphic engine, and my feeling is the new one work less good than the old one.

    Of course it's not scientific results only my feeling. :)

    Thank for your help


    You should be happy that it's like that, all is fine. The latest update did add some performance improvements.

    I try to find the improvements that you mention, and I'm not very happy.

    Today, this version 8.0.35 work less good that the previous one.

    For me RC7 work better than RC8, the display is more smooth and we avoid the huge menus at start.

    Sorry about this finding.


    I have also the RC7 installed on the same Imac.

    The FPS value is continuously changed, depend on what is displayed ( only plane and sky or very loaded scenery )

    on RC8, iIf I understand well, the graphics settings have absolutely no effect on the display quality ?

    I have tested the same scenry ( Bendern ) with the same plane Tiger Moth :

    RC8 The display is very jerky and not pleasant to play.

    RC7 :The display is very smoth and FPS displayed 90/100

    Thank you for your help



    Since the last Mac version installation, 8.0.35, the value of the FPS is always the same (60) regardless of the graphics settings

    Ultra or low settings do not change anything at the FPS value displayed at low right position of the screen.

    Moreover the FPS value do not increase or decrease related to the scene complexity, it seems to be blocked to 60 forever.

    The graphics settings seems not change the simulation quality, I dont see real difference between ULTRA and LOW...

    Of course I exit and reload again between the graphics settings change.

    I work on full screen, not windowing.

    Thank you for your help.


    Do you have an iMac with 5K display? This is actually the only configuration where one might actually need a bigger font. We will observe further user feedback in the future regarding this and if it's indeed something requested by many users, we will try to increase it.

    But since Aerofly RC is doing all menu rendering itself, it's not an easy task.

    This is my current Imac configuration.


    I have noticed some differences between RC7 and RC8 about the Z management of the objects.

    In RC7 the plane is behind the pole and the fence ( good render )

    In RC8 the plane is behind the fence but in front of the pole !

    ( MacOS version )

    Big surprise, when I start RC8 yesterday, the mac interface ( menus popup etc ) are very small compared to the version 7.

    The plane choice menu is so small that I have difficulties to see the planes.

    Is there some way to set the size of the user interface on Imac ?
