Really? Since when does FMS have such a nice field?!

I just remember those pixel like areas with the brown house right next to the take off and landing stripe!

But nice flying! You should be definetely able to handle a Bixler!

Since version Alpha 8.5 you can download HQ landscapes.

I can fly a lot of FMS planes without crashing... Including the Bandit jet, the hawksky, the X-35B etc...

I chose Phoenix. It won't work with 'any' tx but will work with many tx! In fact I use a cheapy that I picked up 2nd hand for about $20. (parkzone 5ap).

Yeah, the Phoenix software is actually a free download and you can buy an interconnect cable as they call it for your TX for about $10 or less and you're all set. I'm using one of these and it works perfect.

I haven't seen anything but the demo available for download. I ordered the interconnect cable from hobbyking and got the "software" disk with it, but the version of phoenix on the disk keeps flagging my virus scan saying there is a trojan on there.

The Phoenix software itself doens't have any copy protection...that's all done through that cable. Try turning off your virus scanner to do the install...that's recommended by most software installers anyhow. Once it's installed you can download the updates free of charge.

Here I come again, sounding like the fun police!

Firstly, no hard feelings aimed at anyone. I just want to put in .02 for the developers of Phoenix. I have no affiliation with Phoenix or any distributors; I just see that it can go pear-shaped for everyone if 'piracy' continues so please hear me out.

A great plus of Phoenix is that software trials and updates are freely available over the net. Compare with other programs where you have to buy the next edition. This was a major factor in my deciding to purchase Phoenix as I reckon its brilliant that in 10 years time I'll still have the latest software with the latest models and not pay an extra cent.

But along come the cloners and make dongle emulators so as to 'hack' into the software. I don't know about you but if I was developing the software I'd start placing copyright protection on the software as well as via the dongle. That's the first step to taking away free updates and free new models/ flying fields.

Or worse still, Phoenix stop getting sales because people download their software (hosted on the web at cost to Phoenix), buy some hack emulator and use the program. If Phoenix go out of business on account of piracy that means no more updates and everyone loses.

Worse still (correct me if I'm wrong) these guys are bound to be fellow RC flyers. It would be a shame to see RC flyers put fellow RC flyers out of sales/ jobs/ etc. Especially when the $130-$150 asking price is very reasonable for what you get.

Rant over, again no hard feelings or pointing fingers.

The warbirds look absolutely awesome!
And that airbase carrier!
I think I need to get either that or FMS.

@glydr: I can see your point but for many people, 150$ is quite a lot. Even though the price is reasonably good, they just can´t afford it and want to rather spend them on a real plane then on a simulator that you could get "for free" if you want to see it like that. (not saying that I downloaded)
But anyway. what can you do about? nothing! So why argue about it and lose your energy for that. That is pretty pointless.
Its a shame to see phoenix programmer lose their jobs but sometimes it is just the way it is.
