Simulation of Discus Launched Glider with CRRCsim

This is a video capture of a short flight using the CRRCsim on my PC. This simulation is very realistic incorporating actual physics and airfoil characteristics of each aircraft model design. I use a 4 channel RC transmitter connected to my PC via a Simblast interface cable to fly. It is a great way to hone your skills or to try different aircraft models. This flight was a model of a discus launched, hand launched like Olympic discus throwers.
