    AeroSIM RC Training Simulator

    This high quality RC flight simulator includes a CD with software and user manual in electronic format, and a USB interface with an adapter to fit the transmitter of your choice.

    The USB interface is fitted with a 3.5 mono jack that can be directly used with JR/Spektrum/HitecAurora/Turnigy/GraupnerMX. An adapter is required for other transmiters (sold separately), consisting on a short cable with a female 3.5 mono jack on on one end, and the right type of connector for the particular transmitter on the other end. Available connectors include: Futaba Square Plug, DIN6 for Futaba Round Plug and Hitec, Multiplex (DIN5, compatible with DIN7 and DIN8), Graupner with Trainer Socket (jack 3.5mm stereo), and ESky/WFly/Storm (minDIN4).

    Upgrade policy:

    The latest full version of the software can be freely downloaded from the download page at www.aerosimrc.com. Try it out before you buy it!!!

    Without the original USB cable, the flying time is limited to two minutes after which the model stops flying and a message inviting to purchase the simulator is displayed.

    The upgrade policy is that all future software updates, including new functions, models and scenarios will be free to download.

    FPV features:

    The simulator is quite popular among FPV enthusiasts for its unique FPV features. The on-board FPV Camera in all models can be controlled from the transmitter (or even from a Head Tracker), and several types of OSD present the GPS and flight data in a realistic way. There are also customers interested in practicing FPV over their actual flying site, and the simulator includes a Scenario Generator to build new scenarios from satellite imagery, captured, for instance, from Google Earth.

    Multicopter Models:

    It also includes several MikroKopter models that have been tested by the creator Holger Buss, and MK users are finding very attractive the simulator in order to protect their investment by learning to fly them first in the simulator. Also the GAUI 330X-S is included.

    This disk goes through every item in the transmitter menu. After an overview of theory for each menu item, the “armchair” settings are punched into the transmitter. These are the points, curves, and program mixes that can be programmed before you ever work with the helicopter.

    Once the “armchair settings” are finalized on the beginning of this disk, Ray dives into building tips and radio installation details. After this, the Bench Setup begins. Because of all the groundwork covered in the first disk (the “why”), the Bench Setup (the “how”) is pretty simple and straightforward. The main “unknowns” are finding the throttle servo endpoints, the amount of collective pitch the machine has to offer, and setting up the tail rotor and gyr

    • VOLUME 12: Flight Trimming (1 hr. 29 min.; 22 scenes)

    Volume 12 finishes the Bench Setup by showing how to set up the RevMax. After a quick overview of the transmitter, it’s out to the field! Ray takes his T-Rex 600N (that’s never been flown) and has it flying far better than his ability in only three tanks of fuel! As proof, he hands over the machine to a talented young pilot (Kyle Dahl) and lets him wring out the machine! After viewing this disk, you’ll know the major things to look for as you sequence through the flight trimming process.

  • Ray's HeliTech Volume 13 & 14

    One of the most satisfying aspects of flying a model helicopter is doing autorotations. When it's calm, you hover. When there's some wind, you autorotate! Whether you have a nitro or electric helicopter (450 size and up) the information contained in these disks will have you autorotating in no time!

    Volume 13 covers autorotation theory. How does the aerodynamic airflow affect autos? How are autos used in emergency situations? Discover the difference between driven and non-driven tail rotors and how they influence efficiency vs. control. Finally, V13 shows you how to set up for autos using Spektrum, JR, and Futaba radios.

    Volume 14 begins with a bit of advanced theory, then we head out to the field. A stick cam lets you see every movement of collective pitch and tail rotor! Ray starts out teaching you how to do hovering autos, and ends up teaching you dead engine autos from altitude! V14 concludes by showing all kinds of advanced autos demonstrated by Kyle Dahl, the winner of the 2010 XFC. (We've got a stick cam on Kyle, too.) It's worth it just to see Kyle do all his fancy autos!

  • Ray's Shop & Field Companion

    264 Pages - 600 Photographs - 114 Drawings

    Ray's book, originally entitled "Ray's Complete Helicopter Manual," was initially released in 1986. He was writing the "Hover" column for R/C Modeler magazine, and took a compilation of articles he'd written since 1981 and formed the book. RCM published it as part of their "Anthology" series.

    The book went through numerous revisions through the years. There was a second edition of Ray's Complete Helicopter Manual, then a third. In 2001, Ray did an extensive re-write and re-named the book "Ray's Authoritative Helicopter Manual."

    In the fall of 2005, Ray's produced his first DVD, Volumes 1-3. One month later, R/C Modeler went out of business. Ray knew the DVD would do a pretty good job of filling in while the book wasn't available. He enjoyed the DVDs so much that he made V4-5, then V6. He planned to have a new edition of the book in the Spring of 2007, but V7-9 of the DVD Series became the priority. With V7-9 completed, his attention turned to the book, which finally came out on May 15, 2008. At 264 pages, the new book has over 20 more pages of additional content, along with an extensive index. In addition to the time-proven material carried forward from the previous book, the new edition features information on eCCPM, electric helicopters, and the new 2.4 GHz radios.

    VOLUME 9: Bench Setup and Flying (1 hr. 47 min.; 41 scenes)
    With the theory in hand from Volume 8, we apply it as we set up an eCCPM helicopter. While we use the T-Rex for the setup, the information is totally applicable to eCCPM glow helicopters as well. With the setup complete, we go to the field and trim out the T-Rex, all the while marveling at the quietness and smoothness of this electric helicopter!

  • Rotor Blade Building, Balancing (Volume 6)

    VOLUME 6: ROTOR BLADE BUILDING & BALANCING (1 hr. 45 min.: 25 scenes) includes:
    This disk starts with the core concepts of balance, and outlines four different balancing procedures. With the theory in hand, various places for error in the rotor head are discussed, and different types of corrective weight are shown. Then it’s on to building a perfect set of wooden rotor blades (for beginners), and balancing them to a high degree of precision with little more than common drinking glasses! The balance of the DVD features Carbon Fiber rotor blades (for intermediate/advanced pilots), and three other balancing methods. These use Du-Bro’s Tru-Spin balance, and gradually increase the degree of sophistication, culminating with an Ohuas gram scale and Miniature Aircraft’s Koll Rotor Pro. With the various balancing methods complete, that information is applied to the main rotor balance of a small electric helicopter. Finally, the DVD finishes by showing how to balance all types of tail rotors.
