This page contains info about simulators. Currently it contains models for the Reflex simulator, a night flight setup (field and helicopter) for the Reflex simulator our local field for the Reflex simulator a number of recordings. You can find a lot about simulators on: http://www.rcsim.de.
The models are not mine, I only changed the parameters so that they fly like my real helicopters.
You can try them out and see how the Raptors fly. The Raptor 50 with the light paddles is my current setup.
Here you can download a visual appearance for Reflex of a Raptor 30 V1. The model is very nicely modeled by Vincent Charbonneau.

The Ultimate Flying field 3D Masters in the UK for Reflex Xtr is out!
Century had a beta flying field available of the 3D Masters field at the 3D Masters of this weekend. I have installed it, and it works fine and looks good. Now I can finally practice that inverted pitch pumping piro in that ditch. I tried to do that this weekend in the 3D Masters contest, but I was too close to the trees, so I had to abandon the figure.
Anyway, click on this link to download the field, and install it on your PC.
The 3D Masters Field for Reflex Xtr.
Have fun, John.
Do you want to do some Night Flying on the Simulator, then visit the pages of Thomas Hanser. He has made an excellent night flying setup for Reflex XTR. You can download the scenery and a nice helicopter for night flying on Reflex XTR. I do think however, that the helicopter is not lit very realistically (too much light to my personal preference).
I have adapted the night flight helicopter from Thomas Hanser for a more realistic light scheme and provided it here for you to download. Just download it, unzip it and store it in the heli directory of Reflex XTR. Select your favorite helicopter, and press F5, and in the model appearance drop down box select the mod file you downloaded here and that's it. Your favorite helicopter in a realistic light scheme. Of course this is under the assumption that you installed the night flight scenery of Thomas Hanser which I have provided here for your convenience.
Here are some pictures of my night flight setup:
This is how it looks if you fly a bit away, it gets more complex just as in reality :-).
Our local field
You have to download the zip file, unzip it and convert it to a bitmap using some graphics program. Then you can A) copy this bitmap over any existing field in the ...\REFLEX\Umwelt\Wlp\ directory (for example: "C:\Program Files\REFLEX\Umwelt\Wlp\MFG Tangstedt eV\S3.bmp" and select that field in Reflex Xtr, or better B) copy an entire directory like: "C:\Program Files\REFLEX\Umwelt\Wlp\MFG Tangstedt eV" to: "C:\Program Files\REFLEX\Umwelt\Wlp\Your Field", and then overwrite the S3 file in that new directory. This way you can select your new field, and you don't loose the existing field in Reflex.
Make sure that you rename the file such that the existing bitmap file gets overwritten (S1.bmp or S3.bmp etc.) Have fun.
You can watch the recordings with Reflex, or the Reflex Demo (click on Reflex and go to the download section that contains the demo).
This page contains also a lot of Recordings.
Figures recorded in Reflex (.dmo files)
Just download the figures below, and put them in your demo directory of Reflex. Note that these recordings reference an XCell which should be in your Heli/MiniatureAircraft directory of Reflex. You can download the model here which has the install instructions included in the zip file (just unzip the file in your heli directory of Reflex :-)). Note that Reflex can get into trouble if there are too many files in the demo directory. So if it does not work, then remove some files in the demo directory.
The demo's are all recorded in the Reflex scenery with selectable pilot position. This way you can look at the recordings from any angle.
