FliteTest in Phoenix RC (Model Index)


Do you have any way of contacting the specific Amazon seller directly? That might help, rick
I had a pretty good look, but there doesn't seem to be a way to contact them directly. Here's the seller...
I should have just ordered from Banggood in the first place. I wasn't sure of their delivery method and I don't have access to a mailbox where I currently am in Florida. I did order from Banggood and it did work out since I was able to choose a tracking option. USPS delivered to my door. Amazon said I could return their order but they won't pick it up... I'd have to drop it at a UPS store and it's a very long way from where I am... and I've no car. Lesson learned and $14 poorer. I choose Amazon in the first place since it read fullfilled by Amazon... but that's changed now.

EDIT: I've just had another look... and now an option to contact the seller is there... I sure didn't see it before. I just sent them a message. Thanks for making me have another look.
Hi Dagger,

I'll add ailerons that seem right to me and post it here in a few days.

With respect to a good first models, if you want to build one I like the Tiny Trainer.
Easy to learn to fly with the dihedral wing, and you can switch to the aileron wing as you improve.
I built that one myself and its a great model.


If you want to buy a RTF model, you can't go wrong with the Sport Cub S as it has SAFE mode to help newbies.
A friend of mine has one and it works great.


Cheers, rick
Dear Rickp
did you finished a modified model FT ?
FT Flyer with Ailerons

Here's Dagger69's Flyer with ailerons, and I have to say that I enjoy it a lot more than the 3 channel version.
It's a blast - take it for a spin and see for yourself.

Unzip and install the pkg file as a Phoenix update and you'll find "Flitetest Flyer with Ailerons" in the electric list.

Its great to see @rickp has picked up the torch over here! As everyone is aware, Phoenix is off the shelf. I contacted Horizon support around the time they were slipping away and they provided me with a link to download the full version. I'm providing it here as abandonware, along with the email, including install instructions I received from them.

The ftp site contained is no longer working. Use this link instead.

- Follow the onscreen instructions to install Phoenix​
- Once the install has completed, you can safely delete both the .zip file and the temporary folder​

I hope I'm not just missing the link and if I am I apologize. Has there been a FT Cruiser or MM Cruiser model built for Phoenix? The FT is on my to-do list for this weekend. I'm hoping I can get a few sim runs on while waiting in the ER... lol
I am unable to load the custom models into Phoenix using the abondonware version. I put them in the directory (although I have to add the Airplanes folder) but they don't show, I've tried on 2 computers now. Any ideas?
I'm trying to update to the latest version of 5.5 (5.5l) but the h to i download isn't available on RCgroups, but I will try to move them into the pheonix builder directory instead

You see, the updates need to be done in a consecutive order of g to h, h to i, i to j, j to k and finally k to l. The second update (h to i) is missing from the downloads, so I can't finish the update
I still did the updates that are there, the missing one doesn't matter it seems.

Ethanator10000, I posted this reply in RCG as well, but you can find that update in this folder https://www.dropbox.com/sh/uprvktg45nizdra/AAClIlvY45CyGCZ3JLT2oIF6a?dl=0
