The plus for Phoenix is that it has a much better interface for modifying the planes. Also - They have traditionally been better with helis (if you're into that) but the new RF6 heli sim action seems pretty darn good to me. I never used an earlier version of RF so I can't compare helis in this version to previous versions.

The BIG plus for RF6 is the physics engine for planes and the ground interaction. I found that practicing rollers in Phoenix did not translate to real flying at all. Practicing rollers in RF6 seems to be pretty much dead nuts on! Also - if you just barely scrape the ground in Phoenix the plane will self destruct. In RF6 you can actually drag your wingtip on rollers and do some rudder drags in harrier without worrying about that stuff.

There are also some wonderful planes that people have created for RF6 that fly very similarly to 3DHS planes. As mentioned Tominator has some fantastic variants out there to use. In fact - if you get RF6, don't even bother flyign one of the stock planes at first. Just get some of Tominator's variants and start there.
+1
I originally got Phoenix since it was better with helis than RF5, but I got frustrated enough with the airplane physics that I bought RF6. Helis in RF6 feel very accurate now as well. I should sell my copy of Phoenix.

Don't know if they came mostly charged, but I just stuck one on and it was done in 15 minutes.
