How to play VelociDrone : FPV drone racing simulator

VelociDrone Scenery [Future Hanger]-[VRL7 Track 1]
Racing drones / FPV drones require very delicate operations compared to aerial photo drones such as DJI and Parrot. In order to fly properly, practice with a simulator is indispensable.
A software called “VelociDrone” has been released as a typical Racing drones / FPV drones / Tiny Whoops simulator. Here, we will explain the procedure from purchasing, downloading, installing on Windows 11/10 PC, and how to fly VelociDrone.

Variations of FPV drone simulator

Currently, there are three types of famous FPV drone simulators: All of them are real and full-scale software that is preferred by drone racers. In addition, there are the following simulators.

What you need to play VelociDrone

BetaFPV LiteRadio 2 controller in FPV Whoop Racing Advanced Kit 2
To play VelociDrone, you need at least a computer and a gamepad. This software is compatible with Windows 10 or later (64 bit only), Mac and Linux (Debian / RedHat). It is recommended that CPU performance is equivalent to Intel Core-i5 3.2GHz or higher, and memory is 8GB or higher. Get a gamepad that works as a Windows HID compliant game controller device when connected to your computer via USB cable. However, it is difficult to control Veloci Drone with gamepad. Use Radio controller for drone. Radio controllers for Racing drones / FPV drones usually support this feature. Please check the instruction manual of the radio you have.

Required graphics performance


It is recommended to add a video card because VelociDrone uses 3D graphics. At a minimum, need a GPU equivalent to Intel HD 530 (Installed from intel 6th generation Core processors shipped in 2015), and video card must have graphics performance compatible with DirectX 11.0 and Shader Model 5. Nvidia GTX1050ti class or higher video card is recommended. If you install a high-performance video card, you can enjoy high image quality and smooth movement. However, it is not a heavy 3D game, so if you have a video card performance released around 2015 (eg GeForce GTX960 / Radeon R9 380 class), you can play for the time being.

License purchase, download and installation

PC Procedure from purchasing the license to installing it on your computer for VelociDrone is explained on the following page.

Download User Manual

PC You can download English user manual in PDF format by selecting [Support]-[User Manual] from the menu on VelociDrone official site . You can read a description of VelociDrone's features that cannot be covered on this page. However, the file size is close to 9MB, and it takes several minutes to a dozen minutes to download.
VelociDrone also publishes Solutions Knowledge Base page where you can read answers to frequently asked questions. It answers a number of questions, from installation and controller settings to known issues and how to enjoy the race.

Replacement / change of PC / Use on multiple PCs

PC VelociDrone can only be purchased with one license per user account and can be used with only one computer. When replacing / changing a computer, click "Unassign License From Current Device" on the "My Licenses" screen in the figure in advance to cancel the link with the current computer. Alternatively, follow the instructions when installing on a new computer to transfer the license.
If you want to use on two or more computers at the same time, you need to create as many accounts as you want and purchase individually.
Even if you transfer the license, drone settings, course favorite, flight records, etc. set on the original computer will not be transferred. You need to set it again on the destination computer.

Initial startup and radio / controller settings

PC After installing VelociDrone, set license and radio / controller when you start software for the first time. This procedure is explained on the following page.

First flight: basics of how to play

PC Let's make a maiden flight anyway. Click “SINGLE PLAYER” from the menu screen.
If you click "QUICK START" at the top of the menu, the flight will start immediately with the last drone and track you flew last time.
Drone selection
PC First, select drone you want to use for your flight from the field on the left side of the screen.
But initially there is only one drone in the field on the left side of the screen. Click “ADD QUAD” at the top left of the screen.
PC Then a list of new drones that can be added will be displayed. If you have purchased a license for the optional content “Micro Class Quads”, Tiny Whoops name will appear. Here, I chose Beta75x from BetaFPV. After clicking drone, click “SELECT MODEL” at the bottom right of the screen.
You can move the viewpoint by dragging the mouse or turning the scroll wheel on this screen. You can see the drone from various directions.
PC You can give the drone any name you like. After entering the name, click “SAVE”.
PC A drone has been added to the field on the left side of the screen. From here, select the drone you want to use for this flight and click “SELECT QUAD” at the bottom right of the screen.
You can add multiple drones of the same model to the field on the left side of the screen by changing the settings.
Also, on the right side of the screen, parameters of the selected drone are displayed. When you click "EDIT SETTINGS" button, drone setting screen "QUAD SETTINGS (model-specific)" is displayed and you can change them. For details on these parameters, see How to change VelociDrone settings: Tuning, speeding up, image quality adjustment .
Is a bigger drone faster? : How to choose a drone
If you just fly in a straight line, the answer is yes. Drones with larger motors and larger propellers can fly faster.
However, there are places on the race course where you need to slip through narrow gates, make sharp turns or turn around. Large drones that are not good at making sharp turns are at a disadvantage in such places. For this reason, on many courses, the size of the drone (motor, propeller) alone does not determine the ranking. The drone you are used to is the one that can fly faster.
On the other hand, on an extremely wide course that includes the entire city, or on an extremely narrow course such as in a house or in a corner of a hut, the size of the drone has a big impact on the game. Larger drones are more advantageous for wide courses, and smaller drones are more advantageous for narrow courses.
If you can use three types of drones, 65mm, 75mm, and 3 inches, you can fly fast and well on most courses.
Scene and track selection
PC Next is the selection of scene. Initially, “Football Stadium” is selected. You can select another location (scene) in the drop-down list labeled “Football Stadium” at the top left of the screen. In the list in center of the screen, you can select track (race course) set for that location. You can select wind strength, turbulence, gust frequency, wind direction, etc. with the slide bar at the bottom of the screen. Click “SELECT SCENERY” at the bottom right of the screen to start flight.
You can add a check mark by clicking the "Favorite" field on this screen. Velocidrone has a large number of tracks available. If you come across a track you like, put a checkmark here to remember.
track filter
On the scene selection screen, you can filter tracks for a specific drone class (type) from the drop-down list labeled "Any Class" at the top of the screen. You can choose from "Unspecified", "Mega", "Micro", "Combat", and "Freestyle". Enter a keyword in the text box next to it that says "Filter Tracks" to filter tracks that have that keyword in their name. If you check "Favourite" next to it, you can filter the tracks marked "Favorite". If you check "New Tracks" next to it, you can filter new tracks added in the last two weeks.
Loading scene data
PC Click "SELECT SCENERY" to start loading scene data. You have to wait a long time... Depending on the scene to be loaded, you will have to wait for 1 to 2 minutes.
Game Start
PC This is start screen at “Football Stadium”. You can fly by operating stick of the controller. First of all, please enjoy your flight freely. If you're new to FPV drones, you'll be amazed at the sticks that are too sensitive.
This track is too difficult for beginners. " Introducing VelociDrone Sceneries" introduces scene suitable for beginners' practice. Please refer.

Challenge time attack ・ Compete with ghost drone ・ Upload to bulletin board

Once you get used to the flight to some extent, try the time attack. In Time Attack, you lap your favorite track as many times as you like (up to 10 laps) and measure your lap time and total flight time. You can also upload your flight time to Veloci Drone's Race Results Bulletin Board: LEADERBORD and you can compete with your past lap times (ghost drones).
PC First of all, let's make various settings for the time attack. Select "OPTIONS" from the menu.
PC On the [MAIN SETTINGS] screen, you can make settings related to time attack.
Gate Navigation set to "Yes", arrow and drone icon will indicate the position of next gate to go to.
Indicator Color you can choose the color of drone icon that indicates the next gate to go to from four colors: White, Yellow, Cyan, and Orange.
PC Gate Sound you can select the sound when you clear gate from three types: none, swoosh, and ping. Ping is easy to understand and recommended.
Auto Leaderbord Time Upload set to "Yes", your flight time will be automatically uploaded to LEADERBORD when you select "Single Class" in GAME TYPE.
Lap Time Announcement you can select how to display the time when you finish one lap of the track from Lap Time or Lap Delta Time.
Single Player Race Countdown allows you to specify how to count down at the start of race.
Voice Announcements set to "Yes", the time will be read by voice aloud after each lap of the track.
End of Race Statistics you can choose how to display the results after race.
PC After completing above settings, select "SINGLE PLAYER" from menu screen and select drone and track to be used for the race. Number of race laps and game type are specified at the bottom right of the screen when selecting a track. If the track you choose is too long and your drone's battery isn't enough, try reducing the number of laps.
If you set "ARMING" to "Manual" on the above screen, you will not be able to control drone without Arm like a real aircraft, and you will not be able to get up unless you use "Flip After Clash" when you fall. To Arm, assign "Arm Motors" function to the switch on your controller, and to get up, assign "Flip After Clash" to the switch.
See Initial settings of VelociDrone: Initial startup and radio / controller settings for how to assign "Arm Motors" and "Flip After Clash" to controller switches.
The meanings of the keywords that appear in GAME TYPE column are as follows.
Keyword Description
Open Class All quad setup parameters are allowed to be changed. But you cannot upload your race time to LEADERBORD.
Single Class Drag and weight sliders are all set to a single defined level for all competitors in the session. Battery simulation is forcibly enabled and propeller will be damaged in the event of crash. PID controller settings are allowed and all other quad modifications are allowed. The times of the players who have achieved good results can be uploaded to LEADERBORD.
Event Mode After one crash, the player will be red flagged at the next gate and excluded from the race. The player can continue to fly, but subsequent gate passes are not counted. The ranking is determined by number of laps completed, number of gates passed, and time.
Laps Winner is the player who finishes specified number of laps (1-10 laps) in the fastest time. As a result, the best time for one lap will be uploaded to "single lap (best lap)" LEADER BORD.
Three Lap Compete for 3 laps per race. When you race in Single Class, the results will be uploaded to "three lap" LEADERBORD with total time of 3 laps.
Even if number of laps is set to 3 in the above "Laps" mode, the time will not be uploaded to "three lap" LEADERBORD, but the best time for one lap will be uploaded to "single lap (best lap)" LEADERBORD. increase.
2 Minutes The one who completes the most laps is the winner. If two or more players complete the same number of laps then it's the fastest time to complete those laps that wins.
There are also keywords that can be selected only in multiplayer mode or Combat game mode (optional content).
Flight time upload
PC If you want to upload your flight time to Veloci Drone's Race Results Bulletin Board: LEADERBORD or want to know your ranking there, select "Single Class" in GAME TYPE field. However, in "Single Class", battery simulation is enabled, so flight time is limited. For beginners, it is recommended to select "Open Class".
Hint
If you want to make a good result in LEADERBORD, it is recommended to do a time attack with [Single Class]-[Laps], which has few players. On the other hand, if you want to become famous, get good results in [Single Class]-[Three Lap], which has many players.
Ghost drone settings
PC Click clock(clock) icon, which is the third icon from the bottom on the right side of the screen, to make settings related to saving race records.
Each time you click [TIME ATTACK TOGGLE], it switches between [None]-[BEST LAP]-[PREVIOUS LAP].
In [BEST LAP], your best lap flight path will be displayed as a ghost, and in [PREVIOUS LAP], your last flight path will be displayed as a ghost drone at the next race. You can compete with your past lap times. When competitors are displayed, race gets hot.
Note that the [TIME ATTACK TOGGLE] setting is reset every time you start the game or switch scene (it becomes [None]). If you want to save / play your past flights on each track, reset them before each flight.
PC When you select [BEST LAP] or [PREVIOUS LAP] on the above screen, it is recommended to set "Trails Enabled" to "true" on the [OPTIONS]-[QUAD SETTINGS] screen. Ghost drone has a "tail" in the flight path, making it easier to see where the ghost is.
Race start
PC You can start race by clicking flag(flag) icon at the bottom of icons on the right side of the screen, or press [A] key on your keybord, or by turning on the switch assigned "Race Start" on the controller.
By the way, you can interrupt the race by clicking this icon or press [A] key during the race.
PC The countdown will begin, then race will start.
PC Arrows and drone icons will show you where to go next. When the drone icon is red, it is "back side". Turn to the other side.
PC The gate with blue or yellow "haze" as shown in this figure is "Recharge gate". If you go through this gate while battery simulation is on, the battery will be fully charged and propeller damage will be healed.
"Recharge gate" may be located outside race track. If you're racing with small capacity battery drone, try to look for "Recharge gate".
End of race
PC At the end of the race, lap time and total time will be displayed. This screen can be redisplayed at any time after the race by clicking (Podium) icon from the icons on the right side of the screen.
If you race in "Single Class" mode and get good results, your record will be posted on LEADERBORD. After this screen, "LEADERBORD UPDATE" screen will be displayed, showing your ranking and time in LEADERBORD.
However, if [OPTIONS]-[MAIN SETTINGS]-[Auto Leaderbord Time Upload] is specified as "No", your time will not be automatically uploaded to LEADERBORD. Instead, "Upload" button will appear to the right of your time as shown in this figure. Click this and your record will be posted on LEADERBORD.
LEADERBORD
PC Click LEADERBORD(LEADERBORD) icon from the icons on the right side of the screen to display this screen. Top 15 players for currently selected track LEADERBORD are displayed.

PC If you click "LEADERBORD" menu from top menu screen, you will see a screen like this. Your records in LEADERBORD will be displayed in chronological order. You can see scene, track, time, ranking and laps you have recorded so far.
Tips for time attack racing
At first, let's fly leisurely to learn the course. After flying about 2 races / 6 laps, you will learn the course, then optimize the flight course while increasing the speed. After flying about 5 - 6 races / 15 - 20 laps, I think you can set highest record of the day. After that, you will get tired and your concentration will decrease, so you will not get a better record no longer. Let's take a break.

Replay / save / load ghost flight data

You can replay, save, and load flight data that you have flown in the past.
PC Once you have specified [BEST LAP] or [PREVIOUS LAP] in [TIME ATTACK TOGGLE] menu and finished the race, your flight route will be saved for each track.
