Pheonix.
Peroid.
I bought it before it came with a DX5, witch you can use for simple Helis, or planes, plus you can use with the actual radio you fly with.
You can sell the DX5 for about $50.00 down the road if you want.
No plastic feeling radio, if you don't want. (I use a DX7)
Also, free upgrades, and you don't have to purchase expansion packs.
It seems that Real Flight has a new version out every 9 month to 1 year, and its not free to upgrade.
Fly with scheduled ground contact !

I have both and find myself using Phoenix more than RF. I like using my "real" transmitter and it's much easier to set up on the Phoenix.

RF requires much more in the video card department, so make sure your computer meets the RF requirements if you decide to go with it.

Phoenix here. I'm not a 3D pilot so I probally would not notice the difference between the two.

I went with Phoenix due to the free updates.

Lot of talk about free upgrades, but really, who cares? I am still using the lowly RF G3.5 and I can go on and download a crapper load of helicopters or planes or whatever from the Knife Edge forums if I want. For free.

If you have a sim that has a helicopter that works well, why do you need 5 million free upgrades? It doesn't make you a better pilot, it just allows you to come on forums and say "Mine is better because it has free upgrades".

I have downloaded several helicopters just for giggles, but I only use one when I am seriously simming. What else do you need? Or are people seriously using sim models to try before they buy the real thing? Not a great idea if that is happening...

Realflight or Phoenix. Cannot go wrong with either.

+1. I had RFG4.5. And to be entirely honest it's not bad for learning. That being said...

They irritated me. The software is buggier than a bait store. It crashes often, I have a pretty good computer, and it still gets unusably choppy in the 3d fields.

Rather than FIX the bugs and issues that the software is riddled with they release a new version with all the same bugs, but now you can do aerial combat! WOW! If I wanted a video game I'd have bought one.

So now those of us with RFG4.5 are dead in the water with our buggy software. There is no longer (afaik) any active development on that version. Bugfixes are only being done for the latest and greatest video game version of RF.

It is for that reason I moved on to Phoenix. It's not perfect either. Bugs are there, but they're few and far between by comparison. It runs much smoother on my computer, the physics are better, there's a lot more heli guys online than RF had, and best of all they keep updates free and it is still under active development. They're always improving things, fixing bugs, etc.

Like I said, they'll both get the job done don't get me wrong. But thus far my experience with Phoenix has been much more positive.
If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

Well, look at it this way. How many of you upgrade your heli everytime there is a new version out? The 450 V2 came out, people went and sold their v1 and got a v2. Than the Pro came out, people went out and sold their V2. Now I don't do that but many people do.

For me it's not just about flying one heli either. My favorite heli I have is a Huey. Phoenix came out with a Huey so I updated it. Also you can download different flying sites.

If what you have works for that's great. There are others who like the updates, free or not.

This is why this country is great. We have many options for everyone.

You do have to tell them what radio you have so they can send the right plug.
