AeroSIMRC is supplied with an USB Interface.
The aircraft are controlled in the simulator with your own Remote Controller 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 Remote Controller.|
The USB interface is NOT receiving any signal.
For example, when the Remote Controller 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.|
AeroSIMRC can also be controlled without cables between the Remote Controller and the Computer with our Wireless USB version.
You will need a receiver with PPM output.
The wireless AeroSIMRC USB interface can be connected directly to a receiver with PPM PPM output.
If the receiver has a SBus output, you will also need a SBus to PPM converter.
AeroSIMRC requires either a Remote Controller with Trainer Port, or a Receiver with PPM output. The Trainer Port is normally found in most popular Radio Control brands with different type of connectors, for which we have adapters (Futaba, HiTec, Multiplex, JR, etc). Please check that your Radio gear is compatible with AeroSIMRC or contact us for confirmation.
If you do not have a controller, we recommend the following inexpensive options:
The following Radio Control Remote Controllers can be directly connected to the mono jack in the USB interface provided with AeroSIMRC:
An additional Adapter is required for the following Remote Controllers:
The following controllers cannot be used with AeroSIM RC:
AeroSIMRC can be optionally supplied with the Remote Controller FS-i6S.

The simulator needs to learn the end positions and neutral positions of each stick in your Remote Controller.
Remote Controller 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
and click the Configure and Calibrate TX button.
The Remote Controller 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 Remote Controller, 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 Remote Controller
Move any stick, switch or knob in your Remote Controller and see which channel number it corresponds to.
Select the functions to be operated from your Remote Controller
Tick with the mouse the corresponding round button to assign the Remote Controller channel to the desired aircraft function.
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 airplanes with both Flaps and Brakes.
Operate the Remote Controller sticks, pots and switches, and verify the result immediately on the screen:
The Mode of your Remote Controller is automatically identified by the Calibration Assistant
The Remote Controller Mode number determines the function of each stick (roll, pitch and yaw)
|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 memory slots to store calibration and configuration data for different Remote Controllers or different configurations.
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 aircraft to the initial position on the runway, press Space.
The key assignments can be changed from Main Menu / Controls / Define Keys
Mouse emulated with the Remote Controller
You can operate all simulator functions from your Remote Controller. No mouse, no keyboard needed.
Select a Remote Controller channel to activate the Mouse Control at the channel configuration screen.
This is the cursor displayed when the mouse emulation is activated:
