I have an Iris+ drone & would like to use the transmitter hooked up to a simulator to hone my flying skills, is there anything available? I want a proper simulator rather than a game I can play on my iPad or Android device.
I know there is nothing like real world experience but the weather here is terrible at the moment…
There are many flying simulator, most of transmitters are trainer ready.
I may not know what was available in your region so I cannot suggest any brands for you.
As for me I used a WFLY-06 and REFLEX flying simulator. REFLEX aren’t so bad, but it may help yourself to muster orientation from distance and FPV.
In my experience its usually much easier to buy a cheap USB simulator radio as you dont need to care about batteries etc…
But in terms of a great Drone/FPV style simulator I would suggest aerosimRC as it has many quadcopter platforms and also a cool FPV simulation mode too. It is also compatible with the FlySky FS-TH9X which the IRIS+ uses. The graphics are not particularly great but it gets the job done for quadcopters.
Another great simulator (abit more expensive) is Phoenix sim. But its more of a general RC simulator and has a couple of quadcopter models that you can fly with too.
