Liftoff! When you’re stuck at home

The Steam-powered “Liftoff” drone game/simulator is pretty neat. You plug in your controller (the Taranis X-Lite is automatically identified) and can then enjoy a virtual practice or race. It’s possible to build your own drones and tweak the PIDs in a Betaflight-esque control panel.

It works on a Windows and Mac machines, but does require some graphics card horse-power to show off the graphics.

My Macbook Pro is not a games rig …

Liftoff is about 20 USD and available from Steam. Another alternative is Velocidrone, which I find works better on lower-powered machines.
