Heli folk,

After a 2-3 year break im all in. I have bought:

1. 2nd hand 450 pro DFC complete.
2. 3x THOR 3s 45C lipos
3. 101k charger
4. DSMX sat rec.

Still shoping for a used 7+ transmitter…. DX7s or DX8. I also still have my Align 450 metal case and a 13amp 12v power supply. What am I forgetting?

They sure have. I was shocked when I seen that the FBL units just need a sat rec. Thought that was pretty awesome. The fact that lipo prices have almost been cut in half is great.

Your Phoenix 2 should automatically update to the latest version. It is a good sim.

Sorry, I assumed it was true for 2.0 as the later version (at least 3.0 and later) do that.

Don't ask me... ask your lawyer

Phoenix only runs if you have their USB adapter connected to the PC. This is their copy protection. If you know anyone who has the V3 or V4 install CD, you can install from that.

Great link...thanks Bill!

I just got Phoenix and haven't spent any time on the site, been busy flying it.

I already believe I like it better than RF....after seeing all of the additional choices I have, I just might be selling my RF.

I didn't see an update from 2.0 either, though.

I got ahold of the update file. I dont think my laptop has the required video capabilities. Its like 6 years old.

edit: Got it all working. Low graphic settings but working.

BTW. The MCpX model is almost unflyable. LOL.

Get the DX8 - having a 3 position flight mode switch and the back lit display is really worth the extra spend. If you can go for the additional money the DX9 is really nice step up from the DX8

At $299 the DX 8 is a great buy.

Looking for used dx7s or dx8. The price jump from the 7 to the 8 is pretty substantial.
