Uninstall

You can uninstall AeroSIMRC from your computer using the following automatic methods:

Clean-up data files

In order to keep your data files safe, the files generated by AeroSIM RC are not deleted during an uninstall.

These files include scenarios created by user, user profiles, configuration, logs, etc.

To clean-up all configuration files, delete the folders C:\Users\Public\Documents\AeroSIM_RC (or C:\ProgramData\AeroSIM_RC for versions of AeroSIMRC earlier than v4.5

Note 1: C:\ProgramData\AeroSIM_RC is a hidden folder, so you need to enable 'show hidden files' in Explorer Folder Options
Note 2: In Windows XP, the path is C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Program Data\AeroSIM_RC

Wiki / Advanced / Wireless Connection

Wireless Connection

For best experience, the simulator can be controlled Wirelessly (without cables between the Transmitter and the Computer)

A wireless solution is explained here.

Normally, the Transmitter is attached to the Computer with the supplied USB interface. However, the PPM signal required by the USB interface can also be obtained from some Receivers (RX).

You will need a Receiver capable of PPM output, or SUMO signal (name used by Graupner). In this solution, the USB interface gets the PPM signal from the Receiver, instead of the Transmitter.

Two examples are given below.

How to use AeroSIM-RC wirelessly with a Graupner Receiver

You will need a Graupner receiver with SUMO output cabability. The SUMO signal is equivalent to PPM.

In this example, we have modified a short USB cable to power the Receiver from the 5V of a USB port in tyhe computer.

How to use AeroSIM-RC wirelessly with a DJI Phantom 2 Receiver

The Receiver is sold as a spare for the Phantom 2.

The signal generated by the DJI Phantom 2 RX is of type SBus, but we need a PPM signal. In this example, the conversion is done with an inexpensive FrSky SBus to PPM converter.

The USB port can supply the 5 Volts to power our USB interface, the DJI Receiver, and the SBus to PPM converter. We have modified a short USB extension cable as shown in the diagram.

For a neat presentation, we have placed all elements (USB interface, DJI Receiver, and the FrSky SBus to PPM converter) inside the original white box where the RX was received.
