I saw this video and thought it might be helpful for anyone using Velocidrone to practice flying a micro.
Here is a thread by the creator of FPVFreerider on RCGroups.com. I have my custom levels posted on pages 263 and 264. You can get help there.I just contacted the forum creator about starting a new category for us sim users... "SimulatorPilots". I hope that it can happen since Velocidrone does not have a forum to use. I don't know if FPV Freerider does either but I think it would be great to have a place to ask for help and swap ideas and knowledge on simulators in general.
I am running Windows 7 64 bit, and the machine has 16 gigs of ram, the video card has 8gb. The video card is what is getting hot not the cpu. I am also running on a Samsung 3D NAND Sata III SSD drive (have two SSD's as well as 2 1TB, 2 2TB, and 1 3TB spinner drives attached in a server case). Just tried the new ORQA FPV.SkyDive sim and it is overheating with that one as well. The other sims run fine just Velocidrone and the new ORQA sims overheat my video card...@brettbrandon, that Nvidia GTX1070 should definitely run Velocidrone since I run it with a GTX 965m card which is less capable and has less VRAM. The 8 gig's of RAM is a bit of a bottle neck, and 2x16 gig cards would be a lot cheaper than a new PC, you might want to look into an SSD to add if your PC has an extra drive slot. I have I have 44 gigs of RAM (12 gig built in and 32 gig (2x16 gig) in the memory slots, and both a Samsung SATA SSD (1TB) and 2 NVME 500 gigs that are setup as another 1TB drive, so that helps with the speed and takes some of the load off the video cards GPU and the PC's CPU. It is also possible that if the PC is a little older, more than a year of 2, that the thermal paste that transfers the heat away from the CPU and GPU could have dried up and is causing them to overheat.
RCGroups does have a Simulator category but all that is in it is fixed wing stuff.
