FAQ: How can I reset an aeroflyRC to factory settings?

In some cases it may be necessary to reset the aerofly to the status after the first installation.  For example if you have set the graphic settings to “Ultra” and the program cannot be launched afterwards or you want to delete all old calibrations of an USB Device.

Factory reset under Windows:

  • Please press the “WIN key + E” and search for the user directory of the aeroflyRC at
    “C: Users ‘Username’ My DocumentsaeroflyRC
  • Rename the folder “aeroflyRC”, e.g. in” aeroflyRC-old”.
  • Now restart the aeroflyRC. You may be prompted to reactivate and have to recalibrate the control unit. 
  • By this first launch the aeroflyRC writes a new user directory with the factory settings.

Notes for older operating systems

Please note that Microsoft will no tlonger support all operating systems prior Win8 from January 2020. Therefore we cannot provide informations about older operating systems nor we will be able to support aerofly simulators for discontinued operating systems with patches or updates.
