PicaSim is a flight simulator for radio controlled aircraft. At the moment it concentrates mainly on gliders, but it has a few other aircraft too and I expect the stable will expand in the near future. You can get it for free (no ads etc) on Android, or so-cheap-it's-nearly-free on the Apple app store, or free-but-donate-if-you-like-it on Windows.
Installs and runs almost perfect on Ubuntu "Xenial" (64 bit) after removing the standard distros wine packages and installing WineHQ package as described in https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu.
Steps taken after installation of WineHQ packages:
$ WINEPREFIX=~/wine_picasim_11074/ wine ~/Downloads/PicaSim-Installer-11074.exe $ cd ~/wine_picasim_11074/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/PicaSim/ $ WINEPREFIX=~/wine_picasim_11074/ wine PicaSim.exe
No need for workarounds or post installation steps.
Flying around works fine with Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick as well as the two analog sticks of a Thrust 830T Sightfighter gamepad.
What does not
Minor problem: Some planes do not render with their actual skin but black (two out of four tested).
What was not tested
Racing, Object editing, what-not..
