FPV Freerider User Manual (PDF)

This is the deluxe version of FPV Freerider. It is focused on bigger and more detailed sceneries.

You need a pretty powerful 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, DJI FPV, Turnigy, Flysky, Jumper, Radiomaster, Eachine, Detrum, Graupner and Futaba RC radios, Realflight and Esky USB Controllers, Logitech, Xbox and Playstation gamepads. Please try the free demo version to see if it will work with your controller.

Here's a few tips on how to set up your Spektrum transmitter to work with the simulator:

Spektrum users tips & tricks

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.


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.
