crrcsim — a model-airplane flight simulation program

Synopsis

crrcsim [-fvhV] [-l landscape-file] [-c cdepth] [-x xres] [-y yres]
[-d winddir] [-w windvel] [-g config-file] [-s on|off] [-u on|off]
[-m AILERON|RUDDER] [-b nr:buttonfunc] [-i method] airplane-file

Description

crrcsim is a model-airplane flight simulation program for Linux with ports to other platforms. Using crrcsim you can learn how to fly model aircraft, test new aircraft designs, and improve your skills by practicing in the relative safety of your PC.

Options

-b nr:buttonfunc
Bind a joystick button to a function. nr is the number of the joystick button. For example, -b 2:INCTHROTTLE will increase the current throttle setting by 10% each time button #2 is pressed. See section Button Functions for a listing of all possible functions.
-c cdepth
Color-depth in bits-per-pixel
-d winddir
Wind direction in degrees.
-f
Start in fullscreen mode.
-g config-file
Specify a config file.
-h
Display help and exit.
-i type
Select input method.
-l landscape-file
Load the landscape defined by landscape-file
-m AILERON|RUDDER
Specify which function is controlled by horizontal mouse movement (if the input method is set to MOUSE).
-s on|off
Enable/disable sound (default: on).
-u on|off
Enable/disable graphical user interface (default: on).
-v
Enable on-screen display of some values. This option may be specified up to three times.
-V
Only print version information and exit.
-w windvel
Wind velocity in ft/s.
-x xres
Horizontal resolution in pixels.
-y yres
Vertical resolution in pixels.

Button Functions

PAUSE
Pause the simulation.
RESUME
Resume the simulation from pause mode.
RESET
Restart the simulation with the current configuration.
ZOOMIN
Increase the zoom factor of the current view.
ZOOMOUT
Decrease the zoom factor of the current view.
INCTHROTTLE
Increase the throttle by 10%.
DECTHROTTLE
Decrease the throttle by 10%.

Input Methods

KEYBOARD
The airplane is controlled by the keyboard.
MOUSE
Elevator and either aileron or rudder (depending on the -m option) are controlled by the mouse. Throttle can be adjusted by using the keyboard.
JOYSTICK
The airplane is controlled by the joystick. Control functions can be mapped to the joystick axes with the -b option.
RCTRAN
Reads the PPM signal from an r/c transmitter using the parallel port and the rctran kernel module.
SERPIC
For PPM interfaces connected to a serial port (aka 'FMS interface').
SERIAL2
A different serial port interface.
PARALLEL
Reads the PPM signal from an r/c transmitter using the parallel port.
AUDIO
Reads the PPM signal from an r/c transmitter using a sound card.
MNAV
Interface to the MNAV autopilot system.
ZHENHUA
For Walkera transmitters connected directly to the serial port.

Files

~/.crrcsim/crrcsim.xml

Default configuration file. Overridden by the -g option.
