    Saw this mentioned in a blog and thought I'd have a look:

    R/C Desk Pilot - a free rc flightsim |

    Seems promising. It's all opensource with updates and a developer kit to do your own planes.

    I'm not sure what transmitters can be interfaced with it.

    I'll contact the developer a find out.

    Reading through it only mentions the Microsoft Joystick, I'm off work today I'll have a play and and see what I can get working.


    Works for basic controls with the Interlink from Futaba so think that it will work with any USB controller, still working on Flaps & Retracts, can't seem to map those channels.

    After having a good play can get the retract working, pity there are no planes with retracts. There are no helicopters. This appears to be a first release that probably has a lot of potential, but a long way to go the graphics are not realistic, its good for the price as they say you get what you pay for.

    Well, it's a good start.

    Yes, it is version 0.1.3

    That is a ZERO at the front of the version number so it is very, very early in it's development.

    Good On the developer though, he's got the ambition of making it a quality programme.

    The author has the same aim as the free "Flight Gear" full sized aircraft flight simulator.

    From what I have seen of it, it's a great effort so far.
