RC Heli 2 iPhone and iPad Application Debuts 4/21/11

RC Heli 2 iPhone and iPad Application Debuts 4/21/11

After a solid year of long, hard work, Ethervision, Frozen Pepper and iDev2 bring you RC Heli 2 radio controlled simulation and racing iPhone and iPad application.  We’ve rebuilt the entire application from scratch, implementing all new physics and very crisp graphics optimized for the iPhone 4 retina display and the iPad 2.  Included with the application are two 3 Channel Helis, one 4 Channel Heli, Free Flight in the newly designed, three story condo and seven races.

For up-to-date-news like us here on Facebook

In addition, we’ve added an entirely new combat mode, seven completely unique helicopters and two UFOs for in-app purchase.  Whether you are a radio control Heli or Plane enthusiast or a iPhone or iPad gamer, RC Heli 2 has something for everyone.  We’ve taken the best aspects of the 1st generation RC Heli and Plane applications and we’ve completely redesigned the rest.

Check out the video for details and gameplay or Check out RC Plane 2 here:)

    This app is absolutely awesome as an rc simulator for someone who is genuinely learning to fly rc helicopters. Since it is typically recommended that people start their rc helicopter training by utilizing a pc based simulator, which run from $20 (for a cheapy) to $200+, this app has a lot of potential to be much more valuable when used on a large screen device where controls are realistic (iPad 1 or 2).

    I do have a couple of requests however that I think are critical in making this a viable rc simulator. For one..More Flight Space! A back yard would be perfect especially if it had open flight space as well as interesting objects to navigate and land on. Second…adjustable wind conditions. Being able to set the direction and velocity of the wind would be great for training. Third…upgraded realism to the 4ch Pro and 4ch Stunt. I’d really like to see some tendency for left aileron on takeoff that has to be compensated for by applying right aileron input (like the real deal). Also some simulated ground effect like the tendency to drop when hovering low over a table and then crossing over the edge.

    In my opinion if you do this and market it to the rc community it’s a $5.99 app at the very least!

    How to play this game only with my friend?

      We are working on local play in a near future update.

    I am upset because, having purchased the 4 channel 3d helicopter with collective pitch the controls are not true when flying inverted. The aileron channel reverses on its own. I wasted my 4 bucks personally. It’s awful.

      Steve-We hear your frustration. Getting the collective pitch to work for you and all the other pros out there is a top priority. It is coming along but just taking more time to get it perfect than we anticipated.

    Hello, I’ve installed RC helli2, but the icon is not appearing on my device, what can I do?

    • Luciano January 12, 2012 at 8:56 pm - Reply

      Thanks! The icon is there. I don’t know if you did something or not, but is working perfectly now.

    In mode 1, I recall to have the rudder just the opposite and I think that’s normal. If you turn the stick left, the Heli shall turn clockwise – seen from the top. Anyway, maybe there is a way to reverse that switch. Thank you.

      Thanks for your feedback Michael. We are looking into this. Have you tried the other control schemas yet? There are 4 total.

    I was wondering if I could make a model for you, and you could implement it in a future update. What 3-d design format do you use as in (.mdl or .skp)? Please contact me as soon as possible.

    • Ethervision January 23, 2012 at 11:39 am - Reply

      Thanks for your interest. We currently make most models in-house with our dev team. What did you have in mind?

    Well I bought the 1.99 pack and it says I didn’t

      If you purchased (and Apple charged you) just try downloading again. You will never be charged twice for same purchase.

    I have a problem with trying to play online and it just won’t load can you fix that bug

    I love this game but to make it better they should add an v-22 osprey which could have a switch mode to make it helicopter and airplane soe please if frozen pepper and idev2 make that happen thank you soe much!!!!!

    Hey there, love the game. I play it all the time. Sometimes I am even content to just got from landing pad to landing pad. Two things that annoy me a little; lately all of the landing pads seem to have what could best be described as an “air cushion” where trying to land on them causes your heli to bounce around in mid air until you are off the pad. Some areas are better than others. It can be quite annoying in a coin race. Second, I have never been able to get anybody on Game Center to join me in combat. Is there anyone out there? “I want to believe” there is. Thanks!

      Tower-Thanks for the feedback. That is odd, you can’t find a GC match. Hmm. Let us look into that.The Heli Pad bounce we are aware of. Let me see if we can dampen a bit. Thanks for getting the app!

    My iPod broke a while back. I got a new 1 and logged back into my iTunes with it so I could get all my old stuff back. When I downloaded this app again all the stuff I had bought on my old ipod was gone. Is there a way 2 get my old stuff back?

    • Ethervision April 24, 2012 at 3:21 pm - Reply

      yep. Assuming you are using the same iTunes account, just download the apps you used to have on there. You will NOT be charged twice.

      Thanks for nabbing the game. Helis have to be purchased with game packs.

    Love the game! I see that you are planning a top-secret, mega conspiracy with coke, Elvis, and U-F-O’s. 😀

    Loving the game!

    I’m certainly not a gamer nor full-on technophile (my only other game acquisition / purchase in recent years was Angry Birds!), but this has held me whiling away the hours with great enjoyment…

    Some feedback:

    1. Like TowerToo, I found the same problem with the landing pads.

    2. I’m having real problems with House Air Race, Stage 6 – unable to locate the coin in the impossibly short time made available. Is there something I need to know about? Is this a glitch? Am I missing something?

    3. I didn’t know that the combat pack was section-specific (i.e. house, warehouse, etc.). If I did, I wouldn’t have purchased it. (Tried it in House – see 5. below.)

    4. As commented elsewhere, it would be great to be able to set environment conditions e.g. wind.

    5. The House layout is impressive, though rather difficult. (The fan-breezes can be really annoying.) I would have made this the last section available, not the first…

    Looking forward to a reply on 2. above…

    Hello: I just installed your app on my i-phone and purchased the combat upgrade. I cannot find the upgrade when playing this app. I have tried to re-download to no avail. Please advise.

      Ron-In-app purchases can act oddly sometimes. Hard reset the phone (hold down power and home buttons until apple appears), kill the app (double tap home button and kill app). Should work for you.

    I’m trying track 6 in “House” in the racemode. But there’s no chance to get the first coin! I even can’t see it?

  18. James August 10, 2012 at 9:58 pm - Reply

    Race mode, house, track 6: I get 7 seconds to find a coin that isn’t there.

    Allow control areas to be moved up or down slightly to make my hands more comfortable. Make sure my stick sensitivity setting stay where I put them even after I restart or change maps.

    I left a review on app store but it may have put it under rc plane 2 instead.

    Seems in-app purchases are broken in iOS6 🙁 tried the solutions above (hard reset of phone, killing app, even deleted and reinstalled) to no avail. purchased the 4ch stunt heli on my iOS5 iPad just fine, but the app locks up hard on my iphone when I try to re-purchase the heli or buy anything else. bummer 🙁

    • Ethervision September 25, 2012 at 4:34 pm - Reply

      Yep. You are right. It killed them across all our apps. We are working on it and will have the update out in two weeks. Sorry for the inconvenience.

        It’s now November and I’m still not able to do any in-app purchases without the app freezing up. You guys are loosing money hand over hand everyday this goes unchanged. Hope it’s working soon.

          Jordan – We know and we are sick about it. We are fixing Plane Apps first then on to Heli. I promise it will get done.

    Been stuck on Track 6. Is there some kind of trick? I can’t even get through the door in the time allotted. Please help

    • Ethervision December 13, 2012 at 3:10 pm - Reply

      An update is coming shortly. Should address that issue. We just submitted it today so should be approved by Apple mid next week.

    Installed the new update released on Jan 4, 2013. All my in app purchased heli’s, the warehouse and playground are now missing.

    • Ethervision January 7, 2013 at 11:28 am - Reply

      Just repurchase any pack you had previously owned. You will not be charged twice. We are working to simplify this with a “Restore all Purchases” Button on the main screen.

    I just did the latest update and lost *all* of my in-app purchases. Is there currently any solution to this?

    • Ethervision January 7, 2013 at 11:25 am - Reply

      Yes. Simply download the in-app purchase again. You will not be charged twice. We are working on a “Restore all Purchases” button to make this easier. Sorry for the hassle.
