Year 1990 I last flew a Radio Control airplane. The Phoenix simulator is amazing ralistic practise getting me ready to fly my 22 lb, twin engine, 9 ft wing span model airplane again. I purchased the Phoenix simulator software in a box with transmitter and USB cable connecting the transmitter to the computer. I have 5 favorite models that I practise on ranging from Cesna 185 trainer, F-16 ducted fan, a bi-plane, and a fully aerobatic advanced stunt aircraft. I believe my re-training is nearly as good on the simular as at the flying site. I am thrilled with the realism and the practise.

The Pheonix Simulator runs on Windows 7. However, my host computer is a MacBook Pro 17" notebook running Microsoft Windows 7 under Parallels Virtual machine. The 2012 MacBook Pro has graphics acceleration, 8 GBytes main memory, Intel i7 quad core CPU clocked at 2.4 GHz, and a larger 22" high resolution expansion screen attached where the airfield and aircraft are viewed. The CPU performance monitor shows that all four i7 CPU cores are as much as 50% loaded where more than half of the CPU loading is system overhead that includes the Parallels virtual machine processing required to make Windows 7 run on the MacBook. Running Pheonix on a Windows 7 computer or on a Mac using Bootcamp should reduce the overhead.

Good Graphics acceleration is surely required. I experience no pauses or interruptions to the audio or visual simulation. The installation was faultless which is one reason I bought the transmitter and adapter cable with the software all in one package. Pheonix has done an excellent job making the product easy to install and to begin RC flying.

I am a 100 hour pilot of real air planes and estimate 400 hours (long ago) RC flyer.

This is a good way to learn how to fly RC airplanes and helicopters. Just what you will save in crash repairs makes it worth it!
The other main simulation product is also good, but its controller is only for PC usage, whereas this one includes a "real" Spektrum Dx5e radio which means that you can then buy BNF aircraft and not have to buy another radio.
The only caveat is tat the Dx5e is a good quality but fairly basic radio, and if you want to go up into computer mixed radios you will have to buy another one at sometime, but at least this will get you started. The fancier radios are significantly more expensive, so try this first to see if you really like this hobby.
I did find that if your airplane gets very far away it is hard to see and keep visual orientation on the screen, and while that is a real-life issue in RC flying, the limited resolution on computer screens exacerbates it.
One downside for me was that it did not have my actual RC Helio (the msrX), but since it is very new, I still hope they will add it, and they did have its very similar predecessor the msr.
Run the simulator on a laptop and connect the output to a big-screen TV; now that's a great toy!

Product is awesome! Do not jump into the hobby of RC Helicopters without first giving this a try. The idea of flying a Helicopter sounds like a blast until you put a bunch of money into it and crash it on the first flight. Get your feet wet with this program & controller, then decide if the sport is right for you. I have decided to NOT get into the sport because of this program but that is a GOOD thing. Now when I get the itch to fly I plug this in and have a blast for a few hours!

Problem was the package didn't specify Mode1 or Mode2 for transmitter which was included. Mode1 is a European setup - Mode2 is a US setup. Most R/C transmitters in the US use Mode 2 where the throttle & rudder are on the left side joystick, & the elevator & aileron are on the right side joystick. You'll crash a lot of models if you try to fly a Mode2 transmitter after a Mode1. It should be included in the Item description as to what mode transmitter is included. I found I can order an adapter to have the simulator work with my Mode 2 transmitter. I'll be returning this item & purchasing just the Simulator & I'll have to purchase the adaptor separate which according to Phoenix will allow the program to recognize my mode 2 transmitter. Hopefully it'll work.

I have to say this is a pretty good flight simulator. I thought it was bad when I first installed it. After ajusting the settings in the software regarding pitch and throttle, it made it much better. Everything is good regarding the graphics and helicopters/aircrafts running on a gaming rig. It really helps you with getting use to the flight orientations and the controls. It took about five hours flying my helicopters and I got it down. The only complaints I have was it did not have Walkera helicopters which is what I fly. I really hope they include some Walkera heli like the NEW V120D02S, Mini CP, Genius CP, Master CP, etc. It doesn't support the Devention (DEVO 7, 7E, 8, 8S, 10, and 12 transmitters) which is what I have. The Gyro or 3 axis is not behaving like the real rc helicopters, maybe I am just not setting up the transmitter correctly, but so far I haven't figure it out. The model helicopters in the sim are just too stable compared to the real rc helicopters (I can let go of the controller and it would fly itself with no issue for a long time). The wind in the sim is not realistic. The helicopters seems to break too easily on just a hard landing! The depth perception is not too realistic and make it hard to tell if you are going to run into a wall when like flying in the Sport Hall. The turtorial section is lacking. Finally, a bit expensive. Despite all this, it is still a pretty good sim for getting your fingers and mind trained cause this will save you a lot of repair cost.
