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.
