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. There is a demo version that you can try for free which includes one scenery. The demo has a deliberately rather 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 Changes:

2016-10-16

- fixed some controller calibration stuff

(if you already have a working calibration you won't notice any difference, but these fixes will hopefully make it easier for some of you. also, you can now skip directly to the trim setup if you just want to tune your existing calibration)

- you can now hide the on-screen buttons more permanently when flying

(press "v" on the keyboard)

- added a tall structure to the Meadow level as a bonus

2016-10-06

- ability to select Accurate or Fast (less accurate) collision detection in custom settings (Accurate is recommended unless you have a slow computer)

2016-09-30

- new flight mode: 3D (enables negative thrust/inverted flying)

- added two save slots for custom user settings

- added motion blur option in custom settings

- mouse pointer now automatically hides when flying

- revised quadcopter sound

- slightly revised crash system

- the Playground scene has been edited (removed some planks and logs to open up for more proximity flying opportunities)

Note: To arm the throttle control in 3D mode, put the throttle stick above middle. Then you will have positive thrust above middle stick and negative thrust below.
