We are proud to introduce the BMI Flight Simulator. BMI NV/SA has been a major European R/C wholesale distributor for over 40 years. As the first large distributor they have decided to offer a simulator featuring their latest planes for free to anybody wanting to try them. This is a unique way to try-before-you-buy.

The simulator is based on the latest version of R/C Desk Pilot and features 5 new planes in 8 versions modelled after their real counterparts:

The Allegro 1500 with brushless motor is the ideal first model for learning to fly with a radio controlled model airplane in the most safe conditions.
The Arrow electric motor glider is another ideal model for learning to fly R/C. It's very stable and easy to fly thanks to its ailerons with separate servo as well as rudder and elevator controls.
The Haviland Canada DHC-2 Beaver is a single engine, high wing propeller-driven STOL aircraft used for both civil and military operations. The BMI model is a highly detailled scale version that comes 90% pre-finished with ready ready covered balsa wings, tailplane and rudder. It's availabe in the sim in two color schemes.
Just like the real plane, the BMI Beaver can easily be equipped with floats.
The Carat is an electric powered 2 meter glider (brushless motor), specially developed for beginners and intermediate pilots. Thanks to its parabolic wing (self stabilizing) with large ailerons and its particular V-tail, the Carat has very stable characteristics combined with excellent flight performances.
The Icon A5 is a flying boat-type amphibious aircraft with a carbon fiber airframe and retractable undercarriage. The BMI A5 model is entirely molded out of strong and shock absorbing EPO-FLEX foam for strength and lightness. The retractable landing gear is supplied with the kit to enable take-offs and landings from water or ground.
The ATR 72 is a twin-engine turboprop short-haul regional airliner built by the French-Italian aircraft manufacturer ATR. The model is a twin brushless balsa airplane equipped with 4 flaps. It's a highly detailed scale version with an attractive design.
The FlyCat X-75 provides a real challenge for intermediate and expert pilots since it combines very stable flying characteristics and allows all aerobatic maneuvers. The pusher prop jet brings great flying characteristics at high speed and can also be flown at low speed, e.g. for landing.
With the FlyJet we offer you the best of both worlds. The aerodynamic design in EPO-FLEX brings strength, excellent flying characteristics and minimal air resistance. BMI offers you the possibility to fly the FlyJet with a 64mm ducted fan or with a fast pusher prop system.

BMI Flight Simulator has all the features of R/C Desk Pilot 0.1.3 plus:

  • Water! Fly the Beaver or Icon A5 from the lake. The waves on the water even respond to the wind direction and strength.
  • New camera modes. The new 'ground in view' default view makes it easier to see which direction you're flying in.
  • A map/compass to further simplify to find the virtual field.

BMI FS installs next to the regular R/C Desk Pilot so you can use both versions. Soon an update of the regular R/C Desk Pilot will appear as well.
