AeroSIMRC is supplied with an USB Interface which is used to connect your Radio Transmitter to the computer.
The aircraft are controlled in the simulator with your own transmitter for the best training experience.
The red LED inside the USB case provides the following information:
|ON||Normal operation. The USB interface is receiving a signal from the transmitter.|
The USB interface is NOT receiving any signal.
For example, when the transmitter is:
|Flashes 4 times||The USB interface has just powered up (when plugged in a USB port).
|Flashing||The USB interface is in a special mode for entering license codes. Please, follow the instructions on the screen to exit this mode.|
If you do not have a controller, we recommend the following inexpensive options:
The following transmitters can be directly connected to the mono jack in the USB interface provided with AeroSIMRC:
An additional Adapter is required for the following transmitters:
The following transmitters cannot be used with AeroSIM RC:
The simulator needs to learn the end positions and neutral positions of each stick in your transmitter.
Transmitter Calibration consists in moving each control (sticks, switches and knobs), while the simulator learns their neutral and their end positions.
Follow the instructions provided in the Calibration Assistant in the simulator.
Go to Top Menu / Controller / Configuration / Config 'A'
and click the Configure and Calibrate TX button.
The transmitter should not transmit radio signals while you use it for simulation (this extends battery time, and prevents damage by heat building up)
The Channel Configuration tells the simulator which stick, switch, or knob in your transmitter, controls each function in the simulated aircraft (e.g. roll, pitch, landing gear, flight mode, camera pan/tilt, etc.)
The bars show each channel position as received from the Transmitter
Move any stick, switch or knob in your transmitter and see which channel number it corresponds to.
Select the functions to be operated from your Transmitter
Tick with the mouse the corresponding round buttons to assign the Transmitter Channels to the desired model functions.
The check box on the left Enables/Disables each function.
The 'REV' check box , reverses the direction of the channel
Each channel can be mapped to several functions.
For instance, Brakes and Flaps can be assigned to the same channel.
However, this could be confusing on models with both Flaps and Brakes.
Operate the Transmitter sticks, pots and switches, and verify the result immediately on the screen:
The Mode of your Transmitter is automatically identified by the Calibration Assistant
The Transmitter Mode number determines the function of each transmitter stick (aileron, elevator, etc.)
|Mode||Left Stick||Right Stick|
|1||Rudder & Elevator||Aileron & Throttle|
|2||Rudder & Throttle||Aileron & Elevator|
|3||Aileron & Elevator||Rudder & Throttle|
|4||Aileron & Throttle||Rudder & Elevator|
There are two memory slots (Config 'A' and Config 'B') to store calibration and configuration data for two different transmitters or setups.
The aircraft in the simulator can be controlled with:
Most functions can also be operated from the keyboard and mouse.
The key assigned to each function is displayed when hovering the mouse over it.
All functions in AeroSIMRC can be activated from the computer keyboard. For instance, to restore the model to the initial position on the runway, press Space.
The key assignments can be changed from Main Menu / Controls / Define Keys
You can control the Mouse cursor with the Transmitter sticks
You can operate all simulator functions from your transmitter. No mouse, no keyboard needed.
Select a Transmitter channel to activate the Mouse Control at the channel configuration screen.
This is the cursor displayed when the mouse emulation is activated:
