FPV Freerider Recharged
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
RC Quadcopter Racing Simulator
Features LOS (line of sight) and FPV (first person view) flying.
Includes self-leveling and acro mode. 3D flight mode (negative thrust/inverted flying) is also available in the full version.
Supports mode 1,2,3 and 4.

It is highly recommended to use a USB controller/RC radio*
You can find more information on how to get your controller connected in the manual.
This is the deluxe version of FPV Freerider. It is focused on bigger and more detailed sceneries.
You need a pretty fast computer for the simulator to run smoothly. If necessary you can run it at lower resolution in order to get better framerate (using command line parameters as described in the manual). If you have any doubts whether it will work on your setup, please try the free demo version first.
The demo contains only one scenery, has a limited amount of features and options and a quad with deliberately rather sluggish settings. In the full version you can tune the settings freely to your liking.
* Controllers that have been succesfully used include FrSKY Taranis, Spektrum, Devo, Turnigy, Flysky, Eachine, Graupner and Futaba RC radios, Realflight and Esky USB Controllers, Xbox, Playstation and Logitech gamepads. Please try the free demo version to see if it will work with your controller.
If you have a Taranis and are running Windows you might want to check out this document on how to setup your controller to work with the simulator:
Here is a few tips on how to set up your Spektrum transmitter to work with the simulator:
3D mode is selected using the flight mode button on the top left (Self-leveling - Acro - 3D)
To arm the throttle control in 3D mode, put the throttle stick above middle. You will have positive thrust above middle stick and negative thrust below.
Note: The Linux version is highly experimental and will only work on some distributions, please try the free version first.
