    Very happy to finally post about RC Plane 3, third chapter of our RC Plane series bringing a ton of new features and improvements.

    First Official Trailer


    Among the main features :

    - HUGE scenario technology, first map is 6km x 6km to explore at RC Scale. (we are super proud of this , getting it running smoothly on Mobile has been extravagantly complex)
    - Realistic physics . Among the most advanced plane simulations.
    - RC planes and multicopters
    - Full day night cycle with scenario reacting accordingly .
    - Unlock airstrips across the scenario in free flight
    - Many game modes
    - A completely new base for RC Plane to grow on, new scenarios and game modes will come trough updates as for RC Plane 2, but with way more possibilities thanks to new tech.
    - Multiplayer (more on this soon)
    - Flaps, retractable landing gears and more.....
    - Much more...

    Here are a few "Postcards" from our launch scenario





    A general HUGE THANKS to the Unity community, as without the many forum threads, and unity answers many bugs would have stolen way more time from us.

    UPDATE (2/11/15) :
    New screenshots from version 1.0 submitted to Apple for review

    Happy to write that after a "bumpy" launch with way more issues than expected, Apple approved an update just in time for christmas, and now RC Plane 3 is ready for some players :)
    Here is the iTunes link :

    We have also added up to 6 players multiplayer (free flight and combat).

    Why don't you have a android version? Since you are using unity it shouldn't be a problem to make.

    Unfortunately memory access speed is quite of an issue for our game on Android devices. In our tests we found very few devices that had fast enough memory access for the game run decently (We are streaming from disk everything in the scenario).
    We plan to release an Android version too, but we have to better define which devices we can support and handle the size limits of the Google play Store.
    Also, from our other games we found the piracy rate on Android to be unbelievably high so we are now focusing on the iOs version. It's actually probable that we will release a PC / Mac version before the Android one.

    Well yeah might be a problem, but most modern Android devices is as fast as the iphone devices if you pay the same amount of money for them. Also piracy is a bigger thing on Android but you lose a huge chunk of the community so you get less money... I dont know how common piracy is on Android devices but i dont know of anyone who does it.

    You are surely right about Android community and we love our Android users from our other titles, just that the various issues Android related have caused it to become not the highest of priorities, and this is mainly due to budget / time constraints. Truly hope to have an Android version sooner rather than later and will surely post here about it once ready or in beta.
    Great thanks for your opinion.
