PicaSim: Free flight simulatorArchived
You can use PicaSim to learn how to fly RC planes, to practise aerobatics, or just to have fun flying around on a rainy day. Watch the video at http://youtu.be/uSv34QZ-kEo for some hints on how to fly.It is 90% geared towards RC glider flying (slope and thermal), and aims to be as realistic as possible, including wind flow, turbulence and thermals. The gliders range from small flying wings like the Weasel, aerobatic planes like the Phase 6, le Fish and the Jart, up to larger soaring and scale planes, plus a full size hang glider. It also includes a fully aerobatic (3D capable) powered plane, the Extra 3D.There's now a forum for posting bugs, suggestions and general discussion at http://picasim.freeforums.orgYou can read a detailed review of PicaSim in the February 2013 edition of Radio Controlled Soaring Digest: http://www.rcsoaringdigest.com/ where it says "PicaSim is a fantastic flight simulator ... after a short time it’s like having a real transmitter in your hands".Please rememb..
