Lynx VTOL features a simulator for training and Swift GCS familiarization. The simulator is useful for providing a high level simulation of the aircraft and the mission, however the exact tuning and response of the simulated aircraft is different than the actual Lynx VTOL. Additionally items such as the wind estimator may not work well during simulation.
This will launch the simulator command prompt window. Note the TCP port.
