Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ / Without Transmitter

I do not have a Remote Controller. Do I need one?

If you do not have any Remote Controller, then you need one.

Find a list of compatible transmitters in Wiki / Controller / Compatible Transmitters

We also offer a Pack which includes a Remote Controller.

FAQ / With Transmitter

How do I connect my transmitter to the computer?

AeroSIMRC includes a USB interface to connect your transmitter to the computer. An adapter may be required for some transmitter brands.

Find a list of compatible transmitters and the required adapter in Wiki / Controller / Compatible Transmitters. You can order the adapter when you order your copy of AeroSIMRC

FAQ / Purchase without USB

I already have a simulator cable. Can I buy AeroSIM RC without the USB interface?

No, AeroSIMRC is only sold with its USB interface. The original USB interface must be connected to the computer. Otherwise, the simulator will work for 2 minutes as a free demo.

FAQ / Other USB or joystick

Can I use a USB Controller, joystick or a USB cable from other simulator?

No, but you can use it for evaluation.

You can use a USB controller (like GamePilot), joystick or USB cable from other simulator only during the 2 minutes evaluation time.

When the original USB interface is connected, the simulator will ignore any other USB controller that may also be connected to the computer.

For this reason, a transmitter with trainer port is required, which can output the PPM signal to the USB interface.

The USB acts as a dongle to prevent illegal use of the software.

FAQ / Problems

I have problems with my Transmitter or with the USB interface

FAQ / Windows 10

Windows 10

We have successfully tested AeroSIMRC on Windows 10.

If you have any problem, please check Wiki / Troubleshooting / Windows 10 .

When upgrading to Windows 10, the graphics driver does not always work correctly, and the graphics may be too slow, or the program may crash. The solution is to install the latest graphic driver.

However, when Windows searches for the latest driver, it may erroneously report that the latest driver is already installed.

The solution in this case is to uninstall the graphics driver, and then install it again.


MAC Compatibility?

The MAC version is not supported directly from us. However, many MAC users have reported that AeroSIMRC runs fine in a MAC in several configurations.

For example, a MAC user has tested the simulator on four different Apple Mac with the USB interface. It worked fine on all, but only with Mac OS X Snowleopard. With the new Lion it didn't work.

Other MAC users have reported that the program runs fine in OS X (Lion) 10.7.1 + Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac + Windows 7 Ultimate on Mac Pro and MacBook.

It has also been successfully tested with Bootcamp (remember to install your original Mac OS install disk while running in Windows, in case of reduced performance)

Please, download the software and try it in your system to make sure.

FAQ / Mouse
