    That's good but nothing like the real thing.:DI'm jealous as can only get freerider working on a 10" tablet. So if it's raining on my days off. Then ps4 wins.o_O

    Welcome aboard :)

    FPV FreeRider is a good way to get some skills before your maiden flights with real quads.
    Your learning curve will be a lot shorter after having already gained experience on a sim (presuming it was with a real radio). ;)
