RC Quadcopter Racing Simulator.

First person view (FPV) and line of sight (LOS) flying available.

Supports mode 1,2,3 and 4.

It is highly recommended to use a USB controller. Most USB controllers should work*

Includes self-leveling and acro mode. In the full version 3d flight mode is also available (for inverted flying).

Six sceneries are included as well as a Racetrack Generator that can generate millions of tracks automatically using procedural generation. There is a demo version that you can try for free which includes one scenery. The demo has a deliberately sluggish quad setup. In the full version you have the ability to adjust settings for input rates, camera and physics precisely to your liking.

Fly (and crash!) all you want regardless of rain, wind, sleet or snow - all for the price of a few replacement props.

Recent changelog:


Completely reworked the internal input system to provide better controller compatibility and easier controller calibration.

This will be most noticeable on Windows machines. Now you should no longer need to set up special endpoints for radios such as the FrSky Taranis etc. 

If you have been using an older version of Freerider you will probably need to go through the Calibrate Controller procedure in the simulator again. 

If you have previously needed to use a model with modified endpoints, it is now recommended to going back to using a standard default model setup.
