All first-time players should go through controller calibration. This is a very important step. You must create a new controller profile and complete the calibration process to ensure that your controller and the DRL Simulator are communicating properly. Follow the steps below.
- Make sure your controller and cable are compatible with the DRL Simulator. Click here to see if your controller and cable are compatible. You can also click here to see if your controller has been used by the community.
- Once confirmed compatibility, turn on your controller and plug it in to the computer. Or in the case of Spektrum radios, plug in the cable to the trainer port to turn on the controller, then plug in to the computer.
- Launch the simulator and click on Settings>Choose Controller>Create New, and then choose the controller that corresponds with your specific controller. **Note: If you do not see your specific controller you may choose the "Other" option.
- Now go through the on screen instructions to complete the calibration process. Be Sure to put the sticks back in the "center" position each time before hitting the "Next" button on the screen.
That's it! Your controller should now be setup and you're free to fly.
