PicaSim is a flight simulator for radio controlled aircraft. At the moment it concentrates mainly on gliders, but it has a few other aircraft too and I expect the stable will expand in the near future. You can get it for free (no ads etc) on Android, or so-cheap-it's-nearly-free on the Apple app store, or free-but-donate-if-you-like-it on Windows.

Please do explore and post on the forums if you have any questions about PicaSim, or you can email me at the address below. Announcements about new versions will appear there, or on the Facebook page.

The forums are currently the most active source of new information, including lots of user-created planes and sceneries etc:

Aeroplanes and sceneries

These planes are currently available in the simulator - mostly gliders, but also a few powered R/C and control-line planes, a quadcopter and a hang glider:

AcroBat: 1.5 metre span low wing powered plane, capable of basic aerobatics. ASW15 Banana Canard glider Discus Electric Kato Extra 3D Extra control-line F18 Electric ducted fan GeeBee Genie Hang glider Jackdaw - high-wing trainer Icarus DLG Jart Kato Le Fish Le Fish - ultralight version Magpie Martin Wing: Lightweight flying wing, ideal for gentle winds and slope or thermal soaring. Max Bee: Control line plane designed by Igor Burger Mini DLG Minimoa Neoslope Notos: 1.5 metre span discus launched glider (DLG) based on the Ypsi Notos with aileron, rudder, elevator and flaps.

Quartz: Based on the aerobatic glider designed by Francois Cahour - aileron, elevator, flaps and rudder. RT Eraser Five: Indoor electric plane designed by Robin Trumpp. Use the dual rates to switch between smooth and 3D flying. Indoor electric plane designed by Robin Trumpp, with a variable pitch prop. Use the dual rates to switch between throttle and variable propeller pitch modes. Sherpa II SopwithPup 2.6m F3F glider Spitfire SpitfirePSS The Plank Tigger - 3m F3F glider Trainer Trapeze Jet-style plane with two pusher props. Wasp - quadcoopter Weasel: Based on the 90cm span foam glider from Dream-Flight Yak54 - indoor plane

These are the sceneries:

And there are three skyscapes for the 3D environments:

You can also modify and create your own planes and sceneries.
