FAQ / With Remote Controller

Find a list of compatible remote controllers and the required adapter in Wiki / Controller / Compatible Remote Controllers. You can order the adapter when you order your copy of AeroSIM-RC

FAQ / Purchase without USB

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

No, AeroSIM-RC is only sold with its USB Interface. The USB dongle holds the license, and therefore it must be plugged in.

If the original USB Interface is not plugged in, the simulator will work for 2 minutes as a free demo.

After the original USB is plugged, the simulator will only use this USB as the input device. Therefore other USB controller cannot be selected.

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 remote controller 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 Remote Controller or with the USB Interface

FAQ / Windows 10

Windows 10

AeroSIM-RC runs fine on Windows 10.

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

When upgrading from older Windows to Windows 10, the graphics driver does not always work correctly, and the graphics may be too slow, or the program may even 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.
