The neXt level of radio control flight simulation. We gave our rc Flight Simulator the name neXt because it heralds the next evolution in the model flight simulator industry. 

Thanks to the highly effective programming beneath the hood of the graphics engine, you'll get the highest quality not only on the latest hardware, but also smooth performance on older computer systems. To demonstrate the quality of the physics simulation included in neXt we have published a few videos here. 

 

Content:
The neXt contains 19 flight sceneries, 56 helicopters, 12 multicopters and 2 fixed-wing models. More scenes, helicopters and functions will be added in free updates. All v 1.x updates are free of charge. 

Compatible control systems: 

  • We do recommend the use of the RCWare RX2SIM Wireless Multi-Sim Adapter which offers up to 8 proportional channels and works with all common transmitters. You can order the RX2SIM in our online shop.
  • PS3 / PS4 Controller (Apple OSX)
  • XBox 360 Controller (Windows)
  • All input devices that output a joystick signal will be accepted. See compatibility list below.

 

Beginner: The hover flight trainer progressively enables more and more control functions in order to help beginners learn hovering from the four predefined angles. An inverted-flight trainer completes this training program. The switchable autopilot simulates the flight behavior of real helicopters with rescue systems (e.g. BEASTX Microbeast Pro-Edition). 

Advanced: The Simulator is of course fully 3D. If necessary, the neXt shows the stick movements with four available control assignments. Now you can train blade scratching. Practice autorotations and learn the required pitch inputs to perform the manoeuvre in reality with confidence. The more the energy builds up in the main rotor blades, the more the flight data display (below heli) turns yellow. 

Training videos for learning Roll, Turn, Funnel, TicTocs, Piro Flip, Piro Looping, Piro Circle, Piro TicToc, a.s.o. Press the key 'v' to open the flight recorder. Click on 'Menu' and load the desired training video. 

FunTry to land your helicopter at a box. A optional marker shows the position of the helicopter on the ground. The real time flight data display (below model) shows the selected flight data. Meet your friends online in flight meetings. A maximum of up to 10 pilots can attend a room. Record your best flights and save them to disk. 

REDNECK NIGHT FLY with fire and a spot light. Inspired by Camp Hardcore and Tony Whiteside. The only place in USA to allow spot light flying. 

Racetracks for multicopters and fpv camera including a top 30 highscore list (offline and online). 

Professional film production: Practice camera flights in co-operation between the pilot and the cameraman with the DJI S1000 - including 3axis control and GPS stabilization. The camera can be controlled by a second transmitter or Joypad (Society of Aerial Cinematography / SOAC).

VR: First flight sim with support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive (Open VR / Virtual Reality). 

Installation: Optional You can download the neXt in a zip file archive. Just copy the contents to a location of your choice - no further installation required. Available updates are displayed at startup. 

Copy protection: The online activation requires an internet connection. A person can activate neXt on up to two computers. However, the two installations can not be used simultaneously. It violates our software terms of use when two people share a license.

Great simulator

My old PC computer finally died and I replaced it with a Mac. I was using Realflight for years, but they do not offer Mac compatible software. Instead of partitioning the HD with bootcamp or running parallels I decided to give the Next simulator a try. I was not disappointed. Along with the RX2SIM, I am now able to use my TX and sim away in front of my TV. The install was easy, and it works great. I will be using this for years to come.

I like this one better than real flight. Feels like flying a real heli and completely adjustable to match your heli. Can use your transmitter as well witch is a big plus.
