Sure does. Some radios will need a adapter (Futaba for instance)

Spektrum/JR will plug right in the back.

I have flown the Phoenix. Some of the physics were missing or incorrect. The tail, on a hurricane, will blow against the wind. Flaring the heli on an auto does nothing. A 5MPH wind with an 8MPH gust will tip the heli over?

Overall, it just didn't "feel" right to me.

But.... It doesn't take up much disk space and or doesn't require a supper fast processor with a high end graphics card. It will run on a laptop.

I like great plains G3.5. But you need a high end graphics card, lost of memory space and a really fast processor or the frames jump around on you.

That being said, laptop = phoenix, desktop = G4.5.

The phoenix does come with a usb interface that plugs into your transmitter.

Old Guys Rule!

Zaneman007, the tail probs and other physics issues have been fixed on the next 2.5 update.

Order from here:

As for the adapter you select Futaba and get it free with the sim by the looks of it.

I look forward to flying online with you .

I used RF 3.5 for a couple of years. I did need to buy a 300 dollar graphics card to make it work right. For the last few months I have been using the Phoenix. I like Phoenix better, seems to have better graphics and it has free updates.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Realflight G4.5 has been working great! I will admit though, out of the box the helicopters do not fly well. Once you edit them you will have your self some nice flying helicopters. Helicopter physics from 3.5-4.5 is just phenominal, i really like the improvements!
It does run a little slower though because the graphics are pretty advanced but turning off shadows has been the key to good performance if your computer cant handle them even at low settings.
Here are some screenshots of them models i use.
