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.
