VelociDrone is a fast paced multi-player and single player FPV drone racing simulator. Using real world racing drones you can fly through an unlimited array of custom tracks with a variety of gates and barriers to hone your racing skills. Some of the gates even move! Our Time attack mode also lets you set the pace and improve with every lap whilst racing against yourself.
VelociDrone 1.4 is now available. Details are as follows:
Default PID settings from 1.3 will be a little high for 1.4. Just open the BetaFlight settings and hit reset and then save to get new defaults for 1.4 for any quad you are flying.
New Sceneries for Track Builders
VelociDrone 1.3.22 is now available and addresses a few bugs found in 1.3.0 along with some big improvements in the flight characteristics of the models. Details are as follows:
We have updated the USB system to fix a couple of reported bugs.
The aerodynamic updates have had a significant effect on the model response, it's more locked in and responds much better to snap changes in direction. Overall quad feel is much more confident with better height control and far better responsiveness.
We have been very lucky to have the help of a betaflight developer to help us tune up the motor and prop response, which has had quite dramatic effect on the overall flight dynamics.
Existing 1.3 users can just uninstall and install the new version to get the changes.
The latest version of VelociDrone, 1.3, is now online and available for download. Existing customers can just uninstall and then download and install the new version.
This release has had a major rework in the flight dynamics. With the inclusion of the new BetaFlight 3.0 controller module you can now copy your settings from your real quad directly into the simulator and feel the results.
We have added the following new quadcopters:
Also included are new sceneries:Karting Track - Karting track is Sutton go kart circuit located in the UK with some tight lines and challenging turns. Follow the track or make your own, the choices are vast. Subway - A truly challenging yet fun scenery, weave in and out of trains, up and down stairwells and through a variety of stations. A large scenery offering a new challenge of tight close quarters flying.
All with new tracks plus an extra addition for Stadium:
Lastly we had a good tidy up and improved the graphical performance of the simulator in multiple areas.
A 1.3 trial version is currently in development which has limited features rather than the full product but provides enough to evaluate the flight dynamics and whether your system specification is good enough to run the simulator. Customers who already ran a trial with version 1.0/1.1/1.2 can download the new 1.3 trial when available and it will work fine (even if your previous trial expired).

VelociDrone 1.2 is online now to download. Existing customers can just uninstall and then download and install the new version.
There is also available a new trial version. Unlike previous trials this version never expires. It is limited in features rather than the full product but provides enough to evaluate the flight dynamics and whether your system specification is good enough to run the simulator. Customers who already ran a trial with 1.0/1.1 can download the new 1.2 trial and it will work fine.
In this new release we have updated the flight dynamics to address specific required changes. We have significantly changed drag, aerodynamics and prop thrust with a view to make the quad not feel like it is floaty, significantly less drag to slow the model and massively faster motor and ESC response. Yaw control has been changed to work via motor torque reaction (as per a real quad).
Drop speeds are much faster and throttle response has realistic latency.
The results are quite dramatic!
We have added the following new quadcopters:
Additionally we have included an all new scenery for night flying (Night Factory), plus 44 new neon gates for the track editor to build your own tracks. New playground assets have been added so you can make your own playground type scenes. We also added the Align air gates and flags.
New tracks included:
Lastly we had a good tidy up and improved the graphical performance of the simulator in multiple areas as well as adding the option of turning off animated flags for low spec CPU customers.
Multiplayer support for up to 7 players.
Create any track you can imagine inside our custom editor.
Share all of your custom tracks with anyone that joins your multiplayer session.
Practise your skills flying without the goggles!
Race against yourself to improve your lap times and become the ultimate racer!
Support for Taranis, Spektrum, Futaba, Turnigy, Interlink, VControl and Gamepads.
All of our models are based on real life counterparts. Are you a manufacturer? Get in touch if you want your model in VelociDrone here.
Some of our gates move, making our racing sessions much more interesting for those looking for more!
Not only can you create tracks, but you can add scenery objects too such as trees and other barriers.
