Install

  1. Insert the supplied CD in your computer and run setup.exe,
    or
    Download the latest version of AeroSIMRC from the download page.
  2. Make sure you have the Graphics Driver installed in your computer. Otherwise the graphics may be extremely slow, and the program may crash.
Wiki / General / Graphics Driver

Graphics Driver

Ignore this section if the simulator runs smooth and nice.

However, if the simulation runs very slow...

You should know that AeroSIMRC requires that the graphics driver of your graphics card is properly installed.

If the Graphics Driver is not installed correctly in your computer, Windows may use its own driver which ignores the cool acceleration hardware of your graphics card, resulting in a extremely slow frame rate.

See how to install the Graphics Driver here Wiki / Advanced / Install Graphic Driver

Requirements

Minimum Requirements

If you are not sure if your computer meets the requirements, please download and try AeroSIMRC in your computer.

Important: AeroSIMRC requires the OpenGL driver of your graphics card. If the OpenGL driver is not installed in your computer, the graphics will be extremely slow.

AeroSIMRC requires Microsoft Directx9 for Sound and Controller. DirectX is normally installed with Windows, otherwise you will have to download DirectX from Microsoft.

Recommended Requirements

We recommend a dedicated graphics card, for example an ATI/AMD or NVIDIA.

Wiki / General / Safety

Safety

Unless you spend hours without blinking in front of the computer..., there is no specific health or safety risk involved in using AeroSIMRC

You will not cut your finger with the simulated propeller, nor crash your aircraft against anybody. No one in the simulator will complain if you fly over their heads.

Having said that, you should not develop bad habits in the simulator.

In real life, you must follow the Safety Rules in your flying site, hence we strongly recommend that you start to put into practise such safety rules from the very first flight in the simulator.

First flight of your real aircraft

Our simulated aircraft have been designed and tested by experts. They are correctly trimmed, and do not present unwanted drift due to construction inacuracies or wrong configuration.

However, the first flight of your real aircraft should be performed by an experienced pilot, who will be able to react correctly in the likely event that your aircraft shows any drift during the flight.

After a few adjustments done by an experienced pilot, the aircraft will be a lot easier to fly.

Wiki / General / MAC

MAC

The MAC version is not supported directly from us. However, many MAC users have reported that AeroSIM RC 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 AeroSIMRC and try it in your system to make sure.
