I on the other hand know nothing about Phoenix RC and settings will depend on what you would like to do. Unrealistically easy setup which will guarantee that you stay up would be:

Wind and gusts: zero
Thermal strength: reasonably high, say 4 or 5 mph
Thermal size: maximum possible
Duration: maximum possible

Relatively easy, but a bit more realistic:
Wind 1 - 2 mph
Gusts zero
Strength 2 - 4 mph
Size 60 - 150 ft
Duration 120 -240 sec.

Try different settings and see what works for you. Once you begin to get the hang of it, add some challenge by increasing wind and gusts / decreasing thermal parameters.
