updated it to RF 5.5 at no cost. Seems much smoother especially when crashing lol
Have you flown Pheonix, or are you just posting your oppion about Real Flight?
I have flown both, and Pheonix all the way!

Fly with scheduled ground contact !

No, sorry, I meant that RF 5.5 is smoother than RF 4.5 or 5.0. I haven't flown Phoenix so I can't compare. Bill, don't you have a Phoenix CD flying (no pun intended) around somewhere? I am sure it was in the stack of CDs you let me borrow a while back. It was either Phoenix or Aerofly...

[EDIT] Now that I think about it, it was Aerofly...

I have Pheonix and like it. However; the aircrafts feel like they weigh nothing. I can do consecutive barrel roles, flips and loops with no idle up. They just float through the maneuvers. I hate that.

Back when RealFlight was on v4.0 I had both and felt RealFlight felt better for heli's. I sold my copy of Phoenix and upgraded free to RF v4.5 where I'm still today. Going to upgrade to v5.0 for $79 in the new year and give it a try.

The other thing to consider is whether or not to use your actual TX with the sim. It sounded like a great idea at first, but I got tired of lugging around my real TX, worrying about it getting damaged, or the extra wear and tear from many hours of sim use. In the end I like the idea of a dummy TX, or the DX5 that comes in the Phoenix combo.
