Want to learn how to fly a drone or improve your FPV flying skills? Drone On My Phone has been designed by the makers of Electric RC Sim to help you learn and improve faster. It includes challenges for both FPV (First Person View) and LOS (Line Of Sight). Many challenges are free and there is no third-party advertising.
Drone On My Phone now includes larger open maps if you'd rather just fly and focus on freestyle or doing things your way.
Drone On My Phone includes MFi game controller support. iOS 13 and higher supports PS4 and Xbox controllers. VR mode is available with a game controller and suitable headset, including both 2d view (like FPV goggles) and 3d view options.
Drone On My Phone also includes Bluetooth multiplayer racing. Challenge a nearby friend with Drone On My Phone over bluetooth.
Drone On My Phone uses our realistic physics engine. Beginner challenges are performed with the full physics engine and additional stabilization to simplify flying while you are still learning. This is designed to allow you to learn the skills you need a bit at a time rather than being overwhelmed with too much to remember at once. Skills to practice include hovering, landing and flying through gates.
When you feel you are ready, there are more advanced challenges to try. High and low rates are also available. Start low while you are learning, then switch to high rates when you are ready to go faster.
Drone On My Phone also includes a Games map which consists of a number of obstacle courses to fly. These are fun and will help improve your hovering and maneuvering skills.
Additional maps with more challenges are available as a low cost In-App Purchase (IAP) to help you take your skills to the next level. An Advanced Controller is available as a low cost IAP that allows you extra control over things such as expo, rates, FPV camera tilt, and drone mode. The default drone mode is STAB (also called angle mode), which gives automatic stabilization and is great for learning. It's the mode that most store-bought drones use. ACRO drone mode (also called rates mode) is also available via the Advanced Controller for advanced flying such as loops, flips, barrel rolls and maximum speed flying.
To enable a game controller, first pair your controller under iOS Settings, Bluetooth. Button bindings are shown under the Options menu in Drone On My Phone. Once a controller is paired, you can enable VR mode by pressing the appropriate button on your controller. VR mode requires a suitable headset to view properly, such as a Google Cardboard headset.
To challenge a nearby player over Bluetooth, both players should first start Drone On My Phone and go to the "Challenges" page. One player can then press "Host", and the other player can press "Join". When they are connected, the player who is hosting can select challenges and both players can compete in real time. All the free challenges are available to choose from. Also, if the host has purchased additional challenges, then all those challenges will be available as well. Bluetooth has a range of around 20m (60 feet), so you'll want to be sitting near each other. Perfect for that long bus ride or car trip!
We hope you have as much fun playing Drone On My Phone as we had making it (and playing it!)
Here are some of the great App Store reviews we've been getting:
"This is my favorite drone app by far!! Great for a beginner like me trying to learn the basics of flying a real drone."
"... if you can fly successfully using this app, you'll be able to fly the drone of your choice in the real world. The physics are realistic, and the obstacle course style training – in my opinion – is a really great way to learn to control your quad."
"I've been searching for far too long for a good FPV simulator to practice or just play around when I'm at school. This game's physics are some of the closest to life you will find at the time and the controls are spot on!"
"Hands down the best drone simulator on iOS"
We are proud to finally announce a new update! It includes some widely requested and long overdue features:
- much bigger maps, no timers, practice freestyle etc
- rework of drone control PIDs, hopefully flies better now
- adjustable screen size for clipped ends and VR on big phones
- minor tweaks and bug fixes
We hope everyone enjoys the new updates as much as we enjoyed creating them. As usual, please keep the feedback and suggestions coming in and all the best for 2023.

Awesome fpv flying app, but needs a bit of improvement
First off, I would like to say that this app is awesome! It lets you fly around two different free maps for newer users, and two paid maps for experienced users. Overall, the price tag for these aren’t bad, but I feel as though they could make a few more maps and a little bit of freedom in the game. One thing I really wish the developers would add is a setting to change between Acro and stabilized mode. Even though they have a more convenient stabilized mode, I think more experienced people would want to have a little bit more freedom in their flying. Another thing that would be really cool to have a free mode. Currently, there are tons of levels you can do, even in the free maps, but sometimes I just want to fly around and not have to complete a mission. Other than everything else that I would want to have in the game, it is a phenomenal game and I really thank them for putting the time and effort into a game like this.

Thanks for your considered feedback. Acro is available with the Advanced Controller 2.0 IAP. Also, check out the new update! It has bigger free-fly maps that I think you'll love.
Great app for learning how to fly drones
This app is simple and shows all the basics of flying drones. The graphics are not flashy and complex which actually keeps the app from lagging like a lot of the newer apps do. Flying a drone is not like flying a plane, which a lot of people can already do, but this app makes it easy to learn the controls and concepts. It also works offline, so if in a subway or on an airplane, you can still play/practice. 2 player mode over Bluetooth is fun and convenient.
I would like to offer a few areas of future improvement: customizing controls more, such as rates of turning, a score board for best run times. The ability to reset the race in 2 player modes. Races with more than 2 players would also be a great upgrade. A method to mute the sound within the app would be nice. Additional drones could be fun. More maps would also be a great bonus.
Thank you for putting together this great app. I hope to see more improvements in the future!

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. Hope you enjoy the new update.
Great!... but still needs improvements
All in all, this game is awesome. I've played it so much that my quad flying has come from crap to almost beautiful. But this game still has issues that need to be addressed before you get this sim. The biggest issue with the game is over sensitivity on the sticks. Whenever you put the throttle all the way up, the whole feel of the drone just goes haywire. It'll veer off to the side without your input. This leads me to my next issue and it's that the drone will slowly do that at any throttle position. That wouldn't be a problem if there was trim option on the controls. Lastly, this isn't really a bad thing, but if you buy the fpv package and the map package, there are only racing maps. This is just a little message to the creators of this game that y'all should put a free flight mode in the game. Y'all should make some more open maps too. All in all though. I recommend this game to anyone. It's perfect. It has stabilized mode for beginners and it has acro for the more experienced pilots. I love this sim. Get it! 😀👍👍
