The variations in flying venues is fun and interesting though. Graphics are mostly good except for their renditions of water and water landings.

I bought Phoenix because it has the models I've built - the S.E.5a, Super Cub, T-28, and a few others in addition to some that I may want in the future. It mimics the actual flying behaviour fairly well. Helicopters is another matter. I have the 120, an mCP-x, Blade 400 3D, an Align 450 and a few more. RealFlight does a much better job of mimicking actual behaviour of helis from what I've experienced so far.
I do like it for playing with the planes I have when weather doesn't permit outside flying. It also lets me do things that would be risky with the real thing without fear of expensive repairs and downtime.
This is definitely something I will need to look into as I wanted it primarily for helis. The only bad thing I heard about phoenix was that the helis weren't that realistic compared with the actual models.
