Preview of Sequel Available!

A sequel to FPV Air Tracks is in development and you can try it out now!

The sequel aims to address all the main concerns and feedback I have recieved so far.
Here's a list of those and what I have begun in the sequel to address them;

Poor performance / compaitbility with lower end machines
FPV Air 2 has been made from scratch without all the bloat of textures, models and other assets that make FPV Air Tracks a very large download and slow to run. The squel is very minimal to try and make sure everyone will get excelent performance, even on laptops and other low-end machines.

Incompatible radios/gamepads/controllers
The input management has been completely re-done and is now based on a much better system which is able to detect and use far more usb input devices than the old one. There should not be any radios or controllers that the game will not support in this new system.

Fly-away's, loud motor noises and other common and highly annoying glitches and bugs
Everything about the game is being re-done from the ground up with a clean slate. So the complexity that was causing those bugs is gone and I resolve to never let them creep into this version of the game!

Unrealistic Flight Physics
All the main variables that contribute to the "feel" of the flight physics have been made tweakable in thier own user friendly menu

Rates/Expo setup unlike real life
The game now features the Betaflight calculations for rates/expo etc.
Pilots should be able to simply open the Betaflight menu in game and enter the rates they use on thier real quadcopter and see these replicated 1-to-1 in sim.

How to preview the sequel
  • Right click the game name on your Steam Library list and choose 'Properties'
  • In the Properties pop-up move to the "Betas" tab
  • In the beta passwords text box type in "secretpassword" then enter it
  • You should now have been granted access to an invisible beta branch of the game called 'sequel' Choose this beta from your beta's dropdown list
  • Steam should do an update which will download the files for the sequel preview and allow you to play it

Feedback I need from YOU
You should notice on the Input tab, in the game, there are buttons for controller/radio presets. I am only able to create presets for the controllers I have access to. So if you have a radio or controller other than a TGY Evo, FALENCI or Xbox One Controller PLEASE set up your chanel/axis binds and upload a screenshot of this to Steam (by pressing F12)!
Don't forget to somehow indicate which radio these binds are for, in the screenshot comments or somewhere like that!

About This Game

WARNING: This is a SIMULATOR, the drone handling and physics are very closely matched to real life, flying a racing drone is NOT easy. If you have no helicopter or multirotor flight experience then this program will be extremely dificult and frustrating, you have been warned.

That said, if a new player did ever manage to develop the coordination required to fly this simulator competently they could be sure that those skills would translate into the real world. To go from no experience to some level of control takes hours of attempts.

Racing drones are almost always hand built craft which can vary greatly in size, weight, thrust, acceleration, control delay, PID tuning and rates. So if you have real life flight experience it's highly unlikely that the default configuration of this simulation will match up with your experiences. This simulator should offer you all the settings you need to tweak the game's physics into something that does match the handling of your real life racing drone very closely.

Experience the rush of FPV racing and even develop real life drone flight skills with the life-like physics found in this sim. If you already have drone racing experience, this sim supports many Radio Controllers and will enable you do develop skills on new challenging courses. If you're just starting out, the game also supports common gamepads and joysticks to get you started.
Never got bogged down flying the same courses on repeat, build your own new tracks in the easy to use track builder. Push your skills at your pace by tailoring levels to your current training needs.

Key Features

  • Painless Multiplayer
  • Supports real Radio Controllers with easy set-up and calibration
  • Life-like Physics
  • Track builder/editor
  • Tweakable physics / handling
  • Skill Testing/High Challenge
  • Cutting edge graphics

Unlike most done racing sims FPV Air Tracks features an easy to use track editor which allows you to quickly create new courses and share them online. This allows for new challenges instead of just memorising the same old tracks. As soon as you jump into an online game, the current track will be added to your collection so you can fly it another time on your own with others.

The game features what is perhaps the most painless and functional multiplayer of any other drone sim, with the ability to easily join into multiplayer races at the click of a button. With some custom netcode, the game should never feel laggy to play and enable people to compete all around the world in the same environment.

Racing multicopters is much harder than it looks on youtube, if nothing else this sim will help you develop appreciation for the skill involved in what looks like simple manouvers. Prepare to test your patience on the game's highly challenging courses.

This sim does support a wide range of real world radio transmitters but it can be technically awkward to get them to play nice with Windows and the Unreal Engine, please read through the steam discussions about settings up a radio controller before posting a new question.
