While software like RealFlight is the gold standard for flight simulation, if you own a Nintendo Wii U, you now have another option, Quadcopter Pilot Challenge. Thanks to Wii U’s unique game controller, Quadcopter Pilot Challenge simulates the pilot perspective and the controller provides the FPV (First-person View). With very sensitive controls, it’s easy to tilt your craft and its FPV camera quickly and for those that get motion sick easy, this game might be a problem for you. Overall, Quadcopter Pilot Challenge provides a fun experience but it isn’t a full-suite R/C flight simulator, it’s a game. If you set your expectations accordingly, then drone pilots should find this game to be entertaining.
Quadcopter Pilot Challenge puts you behind the controls of your very own virtual R/C quad-copter with the Wii U Gamepad acting as a remote control/video display. The game uses both the TV screen and the Gamepad screen in conjunction with each other on a constant basis. The TV-screen gives you a full 3D view of the quad-copter and the surrounding area, while the Gamepad’s screen displays the video feed coming from the camera, giving you a first-person view of the action.
