Looking at modeling drones in the sim, but concerned whether X-Plane will accurately model the physics.  Reynold's numbers are different enough that many flight sims of manned aircraft don't accurately represent drone behavior.  Before I spend too much time experimenting (or buy something else like RealFlight), I would like to know if X-Plane engine can truly support drones.  Personally, I would prefer an X-Plane trainer given its extendability.

Any updates on Drone Sim?

You will be able to simulate a small drone, but you will definitely need to increase the number of flight models per frame.
