You can submit your own scenery to Phoenix and they will construct a flying site for you.
It's more work than I'm willing to do right now but it would be cool to have my house and yard on the sim.

Maybe later.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Actually you can do your own with the Phoenix Creator, it's not easy takes a few hours of work, but not impossible

Fly it like you stole it!!!

If you do your own,will there be collision detection for things like trees and poles?

I can't even figure out how to change the color of a heli on Creator anyway

We have some beautiful, very scenic flying sites,both user created and Phoenix created to fly. The type of field that seems to be most lacking is an actual RC flying field with an RC scaled paved runway of +400 feet. We have an excellent field in Dayton Ohio that would be perfect location to practice lining up and staying on a paved surface for take offs and landings. Plenty of room to fly. Problem is, I lack the equipment and knowledge to put together a panorama of the field. If anyone in the area is so equipped,the Dayton Wingmasters Field would make a wonderful addition to the Phoenix lineup. I believe it was used at one time as an early IRCHA jamboree site. If anyone is interested in doing one, feel free to contact me for any assistance I could provide.

Yes, you can set the collision objects, usually I cheat and I put a cylinder around the tree and a big square on the top of it than get it as close as possible by resizing these objects.

So in this case the heli will crash 2mm before getting to the tree but it saves a ton of time

Oh yeah it is also handy to have a USB drawing board which will reduce the frustration of using a mouse

if you have a decent camera (that you can set for full manual control) and a tripod, it's pretty easy to get the images you need

Also if you want some real nice flying field for Phoenix, you just look for an equirectangular panorama pic on the net, convert it to cube panorama than set up the horizon and collision items and there you have it

It is not as comlicated as it sounds but it's sure time consuming.
