I have just been playing with my Phoenix sim and have found out I can upscale my model.

What a revelation. I can now see it. Also it flies slower and I can control it better. A real joy to fly again.

You can change everything with your plane under model/edit. It's good fun to see how far back you can move the C of G. Also, if you double the RPM of the propeller, you can convert any plane into one that flies 3D.

If you go to the Flitetest forum, you can find Phoenix models of most of their planes that you can import, then you can try them out before building them. The Sportster is extremely similar to how it flies in real life, though the one you download has been modified. You have to move the C og G back to the correct position and the propeller RPM to 12000 to get it to fly like the real one. That plane is really nice to fly on the simulator and in real life. You can build one in a few evenings.

You can do the same with Clearview.

Can anyone recommend a flight simulator for raw beginner (75 yrs young!). I am thinking of buying a Taranis TX so the sim would need to work with that on Windows ten or MAC...cheers, John R
