Learn to fly r/c model airplanes with this advanced realistic flight simulator!
RC-AirSim has been used successfully by many r/c pilots to learn how to fly a model airplane. RC-AirSim has more realistic flight dynamics and ground handling than most of the much more expensive r/c flight sims.
· 9 model airplanes to fly including: F-15 Fighter Jet, WWI Biplane, Glider, Electric Parkflyer, Aerobatic Planes, and a Trainer.
· Realistic r/c model airplane flight aerodynamics based on NASA flight simulation technology.
· Fly with Mouse, Keyboard, or Game Controller / USB Controller.
· Powerful controller remapping and calibration feature so almost any controller is compatible.
· Awesome crashes! Planes break apart in a realistic physics-based manner.
· Accurate landings and ground handling.
· 3 view options - R/C, Following (Chase cam), and Onboard camera (FPV).
· 4 channel controls - aileron, elevator, rudder, throttle.
· Optional on-screen Transmitter Sticks.
· 3 control modes: Mode 2 (default), Mode 1, and 3 Channel. Customizable.
· Field objects to avoid and fly behind.
· Doppler-correct sound.
· Get flying quickly! No slow, tedious menus or multiple load screens.
RC-AirSim is a favorite of radio-controlled model airplane pilots worldwide because it excels where it matters most: realistic flight dynamics and aerodynamics!
Tired of "simulators" that feel unrealistic and fly like an arcade game? Try RC-AirSim! Experienced R/C pilots say that RC-AirSim feels and flies like an actual r/c model airplane! R/C pilots, don't let your skills get rusty when you are away from the flying field: practice with RC-AirSim. New to the hobby of r/c model airplanes? Learn on RC-AirSim first and make the maiden flight of your first r/c plane a successful one.
RC-AirSim comes with these r/c model airplanes:
· F-15 Regal Eagle
Large gas powered ducted fan military jet. 4 Channel control.
· WWI Flying Ace
Electric scale biplane based on the historic World War I Fokker D.VII. Moving control surfaces and spinning prop. Comes with two paint schemes: Red/White or Blue/Green Lozenge. 4 Channel control.
· Back 40 Trainer
Classic 4 channel high-wing trainer with plenty of dihedral for beginners. Powered by a .40 size gas engine.
Electric park flyer. Flies very slow so there is plenty of time to react. Easiest to fly! Perfect for beginners using the 3 Channel control scheme. 4 channel control available.
· Double Helix
Low wing electric sport plane. A great choice for beginning aerobatics. 4 Channel control.
· Madster EDF
Small sport scale electric ducted fan military jet. 4 Channel control.
· Super Dee
Large high wing tail-dragger aerobatic sport plane. Gas powered. Great for low inverted passes! 4 Channel control.
· Emerald Glider
Classic 2-meter wingspan glider. 4 Channels - use the 'throttle' channel to adjust your drag. For rudder/elevator controls only (no ailerons), fly using 3 Channel control scheme.
Please Note: RC-AirSim is a realistic r/c model airplane flight simulator, NOT an arcade game. And like a real model airplane, it will take some practice to master the basics. Luckily, in RC-AirSim, plane crashes are free (and fun)!
Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Don't hesitate to contact the developer directly:
-Added a new powerful controller remapping and calibration screen. Most game controllers, including custom controllers and r/c transmitter USB interface controllers, can easily be configured to work perfectly with RC-AirSim.
-Realistic engine smoke trails added to the following planes: Back 40 Trainer, F-15 Regal Eagle, Super Dee, and the World War I Flying Aces 1 & 2.
-Music added to the main menu will inspire you to be Top Gun of the model airplane field!
-The Virtual Model Airplane Club stopped by and tore down the old shed and put up a new high resolution shed in its place. They ask that you stop crashing into it! :-)
Ratings and Reviews
Where’s the documentation?
I cannot find any documentation on how to set it up with a dummy transmitter. This has the potential be be a very solid rc flight simulator, but without some basic setup instruction, it’s useless to me. :-(
Developer Response ,
RC-AirSim has on-screen prompts that will guide you through the process of calibrating and control mapping a compatible controller. If you are still having issues please email the developer at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Like the big update!
Really like the new changes in this update. The engine smoke trails look great. After I installed a driver to get my xbox 360 wired controller to work with my Mac, I was able to use it with RC-AirSim to fly the planes.
Very Nice game but need updates
Liked the game. Very nicely made. It would be even better if we get more updates with more locations and more realistic looking planes.
