    I learned to fly on Phoenix, and well I might add. Anyone who says it isn't like the real thing is not flying the right models.

    The best plane for true 3D is the Extra300, control surfaces set to 60degrees and thrust 3.9.
    It handles a lot like my EF 60" Extra and is about as REAL as you'll get on this sim. We are going for reality here not something that is going to make you think you can fly, then you get out to the field and your plane won't do what the sim does. Like spinning the Edge on its tail for like 10 minutes on the ground. It's fun at first but its not helping you. It's a glitch.

    The next best model for you guys that sit there in hover the whole time is the Cap22 same settings. The reason I like these 2 planes is that they have real flight characteristics as opposed to the Kyosho Edge or the Sukoi as far as 3D. The Edge is the worst thing you can fly for 3d on this sim...unless you like to think that you can hover. Nothing but bad traits will be had from this plane.

    The Beast is good if you like bi-planes. I like to fly it yet it isn't as responsive as the Extra.

    Again I go all out on control surfaces...always set to 60degrees. They act more like 45-50 in comparison to my EF models.

    The Zivxo Edge is good for a flat foamy, more docile than my crackyaks but it's a good trainer. Flys more like a F3P plane with a touch of crack.

    That is about it....it's fun to screw around with the different models but I'm going for performance and what performs like my RC planes.
    Shuriken is good too, just a bit floaty.

  5. +1 on the extra modest ive edited basically the same as you and it reacts similar to my funtana 125 I managed to nail my 1st proper harriers (1ft off the deck) upright and inverted. Kris that's one he'll of a list thanks for posting it I'll work through it and it's a great reference for newcomers Cheers guys

    Thinking I am over phoenix. Taught my son to fly with it. The planes sure do not fly like anything I have owned. I am not saying that some don't fly realistically. Just not like how my modern 3d planes fly. You really cant scale up an airframe either, at least easily? The Slow motion feature of Realflight would be great for learning rollers too. Any tips on some good setups? I feel like my time is much better spent flying my McFoamy. Kinda frustrated.

    Yeah RealFlight is the way to go.
