Rainy day flying

What do you do when the weather is bad and you have the urge to fly a radio-controlled (R/C) plane? Easy. Just pick up R/C AeroChopper from Ambrosia Microcomputer products and fly your heart out—on your ST.

R/C AeroChopper is a hardware/software combination that allows you to control an on-screen plane in the same manner you would fly a real R/C plane. The package includes not only the flight simulator software, but an interface cartridge and professional, two-joystick transmitter (Futaba Conquest), as well.

The program boasts a screen refresh rate of up to 30 frames per second, which gives computer fliers realistic animation and control response. (The frame rates vary, of course, depending on aircraft image size, background complexity, etc.) Seven different aircraft (including a helicopter) are available, with 22 sets of flying parameters. The aircraft and flying conditions can be modified to suit the user through the use of menu parameters. R/C AeroChopper sells for $199.95.
