I don't know if it's also included in the RC version or not. It works very well for hovering which uses the standard mode one settings on the RealFlight (Elite) controller. (or you can use a Plus One controller (but mine hasn't been delivered yet)) RealFlight uses other modes and settings for controls that vary between different drones but has no instructions as to what to use (?!). I'm still trying to hack what to use for horizontal flight in the RF simulation of the Plus ONe. BUt vertical flight works very well for vertical flight in the PLus One

(! I actually got something to post!) By learning to fly on a simulation you avoid the expense of crashes, don't need to travel to a suitable site and can fly at a moment's notice in bad weather and/or at night. And you can really push the envelope and try methods of flying you wouldn't dare do for the first time on a real drone. The bottom line is that you learn to fly a lot faster using a simulator. Pluse you can already be skilled at flying when your drone first arrives.
