I've checked the IRIS website and can find no mention of this new release...strange?
Me neither Roger, but they've announced it on Facebook.
I had a chance a few years back to stand next to the real Prometheus and get some photos. I remember looking at the g-meter and seeing the recording needles at -5 and +10 If anyone has never gotten a chance to see Skip's routine in person, I highly recommend it if you get the chance. The sound of that engine is unforgettable.
Hopefully the fs model will allow one to duplicate his takeoff, rolling 90 degrees and flying knife edge down the runway at what appears to be VERY low altitude
Not to be negative.
I'm willing to bet it won't do, and hold a respectable knife-edge for any length of time before falling like a brick.

Hi everyone, we have indeed released the IRIS - Airshow Series Prometheus [FSX] and it is currently available at IRIS Direct (limited sale 50% off); Simmarket; FSPilotshop and soon to be released at the Flight Sim Store.
A statement on the cost. It is priced at approx $30 (USD & AUD) for a couple of reasons, and I have to be honest with the work that Owen has done on it, it's well worth it. Yes, I understand a concern about the content, however the project, product, that we have released is under a developers agreement and has Skip's approval, so with this current package all we are releasing is his content.
What we have plans for - an expansion pack, certainly more textures and I will be opening up some time next week the opportunity for our customers to request some texture ideas. An initial texture kit from IRIS will be available as a separate download, but it won't be enlosed in the purchased product package.
We've also got a great video up & will be producing another one for more details as to the product you are purchasing.
The website is currently under going a major overhaul at the moment & due to some real life urgencies our web developer is a couple of weeks behind. As this is the case, we've gone ahead & launched the IRIS Online Store (I refer to as IRIS Direct) and will have all the latest updates announced as soon as possible on the main page. As a relaunch offer we have got ALL products currently listed at 50% off as well as reward points for you to earn for signup & earned on each purchase.
Looking forward to hearing more feedback from you all.
I would have definitely picked it up for $15, but because there's no Paypal option I can't. Using Paypal I don't need to have a credit card as I can connect it directly to my bank account. Too bad..!
Couldn't pass that offer up. Picked up the Prometheus and the Mudhen.
Thanks! Looking forward to shredding some 1's and 0's with them soon.
Hey guys, could someone owning this bird post a short opinion on it? I am interested in the aerobatic capabilities, how does it compare to the IRIS Christen Eagle or the freeware Edge for example? Will it tumble and knife edge spin properly? 15$ are tempting, recently got me a 3 feet R/C foamie of this one, would be quite nice to have it in sim, too.
Thanks in advance.
