FPV Freerider is a simulator for FPV quads . With this simulator, you can practice flying very well with your spark on the computer without constantly crashing your drone. You can even use your own spark.
FPV Freerider is very simple and not necessarily the most realistic simulator in the field of aerospace physics – but it is not very demanding in terms of hardware (it even works on a mobile phone!) And unbeatably cheap ($ 5).
When successor FPV Freerider Recharged was neatly turned on the graphics screw – but then also requires a correspondingly powerful system.
New Maps for FPV Freerider Recharged
Now a new map pack for freerider recharged has come out, and the maps look really nice. Also, the price for $3 is fine, even if I had preferred the maps as a free update after I have already paid $22 (with donation) for FPV Freerider Recharged.
The Custom Level Pack includes:
– Big Hollow Bando
– 2018 MultiGP Regional Series Qualifier Track
MultiGP Universal Time Trial Tracks:
– UTT 1
– UTT 2 Tsunami
– UTT 3 Bessel Run
– UTT 4 High Voltage
– UTT 5 Nautilus
– UTT 6 Fury
If you already own FPV Freerider Recharged then you should get the pack in any case, whoever does not have FPV Freerider Recharged can get it for only $10 .
Alternatives to free-riders
Freeriders / Freeriders Recharged are two extremely popular FPV simulators. But they are by far not the only ones. Interested people should also take a look at this:
Freerider vs. Liftoff vs. Velocidrone Vs. Rotor rush
Unfortunately, Liftoff is only included on the Steam platform , but probably the “cutest” product on the FPV simulator market. In addition to good flight physics, there is a heterogeneous selection of maps and various modes, including a freestyle mode in which your FPV freestyle moves are scored points. Liftoff is my most used simulator at the moment.
The Velocidrone , created in collaboration with TBS, is described by many pilots as the simulator with the most realistic flight behavior.
Especially, racers swear by Rotor Rush . Unfortunately, Rotor Rush is really designed for FPV racing and not as flexible as the requirements of freestyle pilots.
