HELI-X V10 from Heli-X


HELI-X is a professional R/C flight simulator. It started as a helicopter simulator, but features in the meanwhile also planes and multicopters (currently tricopters, quadrocopters and hexacopters).

The main developer of HELI-X holds a PhD in applied mathematics and is an expert in computational fluid dynamics. He worked successfully on many projects in aerodynamics. He is not only pilot of R/C helicopters and planes but also a private pilot of airplanes. He says: « Of course there are many books and publications on helicopter aerodynamics and flight simulation available. However, the aerodynamics described in these publications mainly deal with the stationary situation and are in a Reynolds number regime which is different to what is of interest for R/C helicopters and planes. But even more important, the flight dynamics of R/C helicopters is much more complex than that of the full size helicopters, so that particular models had to be built. In fact, the physics engine of HELI-X is written from scratch. Another important feature of HELI-X is that also the flow outside of the helicopters or planes is modelled which e.g. enables a realistic behavior in auto rotations or the spin up of the rotors

HELI-X is based on Java and uses an OpenGL graphics framework. The older version 4.2 requires OpenGL in the version 1.2. Version 6.0 or higher requires OpenGL in version 2.0. For V 6.0 to work, you need a graphics adapter AMD/ATI Radeon 9500, NVIDIA GeForce 5 FX, Intel GMA 4500, or better, supporting OpenGL 2.0 or better. The old version 4.2 for Mac OS X  requires a Java installation. This Java version is recommended: Java for OS X 2014-001.

In order to use HELI-X, you need an USB controller or an USB interface for your transmitter. Details can be found here. You can start HELI-X without controller, but the control of the helicopter is not possible.

Although I do my best to complete this library, you may not find the model you are looking for.

In this case, do not hesitate to ask me to add it : You're not bothering me. Please be patient, depending on my workload, I may take a few days to work on your model and gather information.

I'm sometime asked to add a non flying model to this library but unfortunately, it's not the focus of this website

A simple 'thank you' or a kind message is my first salary but if you think this website is useful, if you like the content, the service and if you want to participate to the hosting, feel free to donate. I thank you in advance.

SkyRaccoon and AIR-RC are the largest online databases about RC Model Flying and it's growing...
Each model has description, specifications, photos, video, icons for your radio and links to shops and manufacturers.
We sell nothing, it's made by RC hobbyist for RC hobbyists. Enjoy !
