-There are many drone racing simulators available, but they all lack a detailed world which feels alive.
-GTA V has so many interesting locations but in fact a lot of them stay undiscovered or they are hard to reach.
-Lots of places like constructions sites and container yards do not offer anything special, but they are perfect spots for drone racing.
This mod tries to eliminate all these negative aspects!
Explore San Andreas like never before, start wherever you are and enjoy your flight.
-I recommend the DRL flight simulator (free), it’s the (initial) reference for this mod.
-Anyone complaining about the control of the drones, should try other drone simulators as well and make sure the settings are fine, if you can fly in these simulators feel free to give any feedback (default setting should be ok as beginner, if you delete the .ini file, the mod will create a file with default settings)
-A bad framerate will increase the difficulty to fly the drones properly, lower graphics setting can improve the gaming experience.
Important mod settings
All important settings can be found in the mod menu.
By default it can be opened by pressing the gamepad buttons A and X simulatanously while flying the drone. (can be changed in settings_menu.ini)
How do I get into quadcopter mode?
-Make sure the player is on foot and not moving.
-Open the weapon wheel. (A textbox should pop up)
-Press the specified button. (Gamepad button A by default)
(please report any bug you encounter)
-Player is floating above the ground (doesn’t affact gameplay but doesn’t look pretty)
-Sometimes there are “bugs” which are caused by other scripts, you can in general try to disable as many mods/trainer as possible if you only want to fly with the drone.
