I was wondering if most of the bugs have been worked out by now. Most agreed that when introduced, the latest version had many problems. Is it safe to update now?

Pascal, did you have any problems with the earlier versions? There seemed to be quite a stink about the first updates about a month or so ago. By the way my girlfriend attends KU, go Jayhawks!

V5.0N looks to be stable and works well. They seemed to have been prepared to ship new product with the V5.0M release.

There were many versions over a short time. I did not notice much difference between all, except for one where the heli felt very robotic. It was fixed the next day. I use my simulator daily (or almost) and was not really inconvenienced by the early defects.

I did the update and, after a little tweaking, I do like this version better. I just started doing inverted autos with my Goblin 700 (at the field) and the stock blade inertia setting is very realistic compared to my heli with stock Sab blades (main and tail). In fact I would say that doing inverted autos in real life is easier than on this version. But I will leave that 'inertia' setting alone so as not to create a sense of false confidence by making autos easier on the sim than in real life. I would rather be disappointed at home on the sim than at the field If I had to criticize the v5 I would say that the Phoenix standard Goblin model flies much faster and with more agility than my actual set-up. In fact who sets their pyro rate at 420? Not me and I only fly 3D. I had to 'tune down' plenty of settings to make the sim model fly more like the real heli. I do not understand why the creators would think those stock settings are 'intermediate'.

4 something.

Tried a second time and got same result?

Tried on my other computer (at work) and it downloaded right from the program no issues at all. Not sure what is preventing this from updating on my home computer - I did turn off the anti-virus.
