Liftoff: FPV Drone Racing is a very good simulator and it just got that little bit better, with update 1.4.0 out now bringing some major improvements.

Going back to the drawing board for the physics system, LuGus Studios decided to rely less on Unity's built-in physics with their new flight controller, the result is that overall in many places it should perform better. Something that also sounds fancy is a new " A.I. PID tune feature" that will adjust "itself based on the system's performance for a perfectly tuned setup in light" but you can still tune things manually.

They also upgraded the Unity version used, added a new environment with three tracks and quite a bit more.

Check out their short video on the new racing environment:

Can't wait for drones to get long distance low latency 1080p60+ FPV and flight time of 60+ minutes. On the risk of blindness I'll spend most of my days soaring through the sky scaring freaking birds and whatnot. I'll mod the hell out of it too, so I could drop shit on people.
