Rewind feature

We are constantly looking for ways to improve the Liftoff experience. For a while we’ve been thinking about how to increase your flight-time and decrease the downtime. We want you to be more in the air and less on the ground!

That’s why we are adding a rewind system in this update. No longer will “R” (Reset) be the only option when you crash. By hitting the “T” key you can now rewind the path of your drone for up to 10 seconds, and afterwards continue flying as if nothing happened. We’ve been testing it for a few days and we feel we’ve succeeded in increasing our actual flight time. Practicing in Liftoff is now more fun than ever.

As always, this feature is completely optional. Where races and tournaments are concerned, we feel this is not really a cheat, as the race timer keeps counting while you rewind. It simply means you’ll be able to finish more races. 

We would love to get your feedback on this feature!
