• Acro FS: Aerobatic Flight Sim Updated

    Acro FS - aerobatic flightsim

    Knife Edge Software and Jim Bourke Airshows have updated Acro FS, their aerobatic flight simulator, with three new aircraft and several new flying sites and have taken the bold step of releasing it free in early access.

    Created By A Pilot

    Jim Bourke, air show pilot and member of the US Unlimited Aerobatic Team, created Acro FS to be the world's most realistic simulation of aerobatic flight.

    Just Fly

    Acro FS is a different kind of flight simulator. This is a simulation about flying, built with the stick and rudder pilot in mind.

    High-Fidelity Physics

    Knife Edge Software, developers of Acro FS, has over 2 decades of experience with the high-alpha aerodynamic models required to simulate acro flight. Their RealFlight R/C simulator has been the gold standard for model aviation. That understanding of aggressive flight is what allows Acro FS to simulate snap rolls, spins, torque rolls, and other advanced maneuvers that haven't been handled properly by flight sims to date.

    VR Support

    Users with quality gaming computers can even fly in VR. Strap on your Oculus or SteamVR headset, and you can watch the world spin around you. Just like in a real acro plane, you may find that you need to limit your time in VR. The experience is intense.

    Try It Now For Free In Early Access

    Pilots can now choose from four aircraft:

    • American Champion Super Decathlon
    • Yakovlev Yak-54 "Russian Thunder"
    • XtremeAir Sbach 342
    • Extra 330SC "Fuzz Machine"

    • Flight School (day and night)
    • Homestead
    • Joe's Garage

    Question about rudder

    Thread Starter: jbearnolimits

    I'm wondering if you hold rudder in during the entire turn? Or do you ease off at some point? Also, do you apply rudder coming out of the turn too?
