I've had a look at the simulation (HIL) capabilities described in the manual and that seems a really great way of improving one's flying skills safely. However, is it only applicable to aeroplanes at the moment?
I am still at the stage of learning to hover, and finding it hard. Is there any simulation available (HIL or otherwise) to help with learning this key skill on a multicopter?
There are HIL capabilities built into AC2, but no options for SW on the PC that I'm aware of. When I first started flying Copters, I would panic and cut the throttle. Now I remember the hover position and add or subtract throttle. It's a different mindset but easy to learn.
Yes, it sounds easy doesn't it. The problem is dealing with throttle for hover at the same time as dealing with the other 2 axes for position. I'll get it, but I really would like a simulation option. Is there not something available on a PC for standard helis that would teach the same skill?
There are plenty of options for standard heli's. Some are even free. I have Real Flight, but it's kinda pricey.
@Nice sim Jani :)
Has anyone tried HIL simulation with FMS? Is it possible to do easily?
I looked into flight gear but no quad models seem to be readily available.
