Sz-Flight Data Recorder

for Flight Simulator X


Version News


Version 1.2 comes with an additional extended data set for recording and exporting.

If you are interested in getting your own set of data recorded, please contact us.



With version 1.1 we have now added a most wanted feature: FDR is now set up to import and export data to and from external flight data recorders.
The data can be virtually from any source, as long as you provide it in an ASCII text file.
Full documentation of the data sets and a converter tool to convert data from the popular FS Recorder software into the FDR format are making FDR more powerful and flexible than ever!


Product Description

FDR is a great tool (though small in size) for Flight Simulator X to record your flights and play them back in various form.

FDR especially is a great alternative to the "video" and "instant replay" functions of Flight Simulator.

Not only can you record and play back the flight with your user aircraft, you can also freely move through the recording time line, set markers (and save them), view the flight from 3rd person view and even show the complete flight path in one big frozen image.

The possibilities of FDR are unlimited: Monitor your flying, take a close look especially at critical phases like takeoff and landings, practice aerobatic manoeuvres and share the recording log with your friends or a judge.

Take screenshots of the flight path from your most successful aerobatic figure or tough weather landing, print them out and collect them in a "hall of fame" of best manoeuvres ever.

Improve your flying skills or simply have fun – FDR will help you to track and record your flights.
