Editors' Review

+
Although it lacks refinement, RC-AirSim works as a quick and dirty computer simulation of flying a radio-controlled airplane. The download consists of a ZIP file full of installer components, a bit rougher than the simple EXE installers we prefer. The 3D graphics for the simulation are blocky and not very detailed, but you can clearly identify the different plane models. You only get one environment from which to fly, consisting of an airstrip, a shed, green grass, and a static photo of trees marking the horizon. More environments would be nice, as would options for setting wind speed and direction. The flight physics feel realistic for a radio-controlled airplane. The controls are very responsive and you can make the airplane perform any number of acrobatics. Keyboard and mouse controls are configurable. The download comes with six models, including a warbird and a glider, but only three are flyable in the demo. Radio-control beginners should find this program an easy way to get familiar with flying before hitting the real world, although the lack of wind might under-prepare them.

"Very Cool"

March 15, 2005  |  By PCMario

 |  Version: RC-AirSim 1.0

Pros

Reminds you of a big backyard. Graphics are fine and fit the simulation, and the model engine noise is a fitting touch.

"Good little RC Sim"

February 08, 2004

 |  Version: RC-AirSim 1.0

Summary

As an RC pilot, I found this program to be a great product. Double Helix plane even does a nice lamcevak. As for complaints about one perspective that's RC flying for you...no cockpit or tracking views in an RC Plane.

Summary

I mean what do you expect for a meg & a 1/2 d-load?! Graps are ok and the little thing just takes off and flys every time, worth the 7 minute download.

"not that great"

January 25, 2004

 |  Version: RC-AirSim 1.0

Summary

As a RC flight sim it is pretty weak. The graphics are choppy and slow to respond. If you are serious about learning to fly an RC plane or helicopter use Realflight G2. It is kind of pricy but totally worth it. It also comes with a USB controler so you can really simulate flying

"RC-AirSim simulates flying a R/C aircraft very realistically!"

January 24, 2004

 |  Version: RC-AirSim 1.0

Summary

I fly R/C model airplanes, and I think RC-AirSim feels very realistic. I use it to keep my skills sharp when I can't get to the flying field.
