CRRCsim is the “Charles River Radio Controllers Simulation”. It is a model-airplane flight simulation program.
This software allows you to learn how to fly model aircraft, test new aircraft designs, and improve your skills by practicing on a computer.
It is based on LARCsim, the NASA Langley Research Center simulator.
- 3D representation of the aircraft.
- Very realistic flight model.
- Powered models and gliders, helicopter and multicopter.
- Models include:
- Allegro – 2-meter composite glider.
- Apogee – hand-launched glider.
- biplane2 – powered biplane.
- Crossfire – F3B/F3F glider.
- Erwin – Erwin 2M all-around glider.
- FlexiflyXLM – powered beginner’s polyhedral plane.
- outrage – a V-tailed slope soarer.
- quickie01 – a powered canard-winged plane.
- Skorpion – an F3F-oriented slope soarer.
- superzagl – a Zagi powered flying wing.
- Side arm launch.
