FYI

Hi

We can confirm that we are nearing the end of development of a larger update for Phoenix, which will include new features, many improvements, new models and new flying sites – but we cannot give you a concrete list of the changes at this time.

We will be making an announcement on the News section of our website very soon.

Best Regards

Phoenix Support

I seen May 1. for their release. But I can't see a way to down load it.

But just last night there was some one flying the Rave 450 on line.
All that I could see was the name of what he was flying, and a big ? mark were he was on the screen.

I did try to ask hem were he got the new down load. But he had a tough time reading/writing English. So he couldn't say.

So am I missing something, can I get the new down load? Or is this just out over seas?

Any word on the release date? The May 1st date is simply the date they updated the news posting.

Well, It's been two weeks now since Phoenix made their announcement, I would think we would have some info about the release by now.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.
