Got my computer back yesterday. Got everything plugged back in today and all seems well. Now have a clean hard drive,one gig of ram and a geforce 6200 256mb video card in my old P4 3hgz machine. From the help you all have given me and the repair shop nerd I should be good to go (if not please let me know so I can get it back to the shop before the warranty period runs out. Sorry I am not a computer guy) when I get Phoenix 2.5 next week. I have never had a sim so it is all new to me. Do you set up the tx or is their a program in the sim to setup. Or can I use the setup I use when I fly my models at the field. Will I notice a difference using the dx5e (if I decide to buy it) or my 9303? Can I use my 9303 for myself and maybe use the dx5e for other people to try and fly the sim just in case they drop it or something? I have been waiting a long time for this and I just want to do it right. Thank you so much for all your help!

The DX5e is not an optimum radio for helis in Phoenix, as it is a 5-channel radio and you have no ability for throttle hold, and there are no pitch, or throttle curve settings you can use in the radio to fly with.

You can set Phoenix up to fly helis using the 5-channel radio, but you have to play games with the individual channel setups and such in the Phoenix program itself.

If you were to use your 9303, you could essentially calibrate the radio to the program and use all of your settings in the 9303 to fly the helis with. You can use your throttle/pitch curves, and your throttle hold switch as you normally would at the flying field.

In a way it's too bad that Horizon bundles Phoenix with the DX5e, as that transmitter is nowhere near suitable for heli flying, and Phoenix has some really great heli capability.

Perhaps they should consider offering a "Plank bundle -- DX5e" and a "Heli bundle -- DX6i". Or charge just a bit more and bundle only with the DX6i as it is suitable for both types of models.

And of course, selling it as it always has been marketed -- no transmitter and you supply your own, is perhaps the best course of action.
