Jack,

Portcheck.com added Phoenix to their list of supported applications. I have a support ticket with them. My email to Phoenix was responded to and not very helpful.

Do you connect to your router wirelessly or wired? I wonder if this has anything to do with it. Mostly, I'm hopeful Portcheck can make it work, as they have $30 of my money and claim on their website to guarantee to open the ports... We will see.

Will be most interesting to see what Portcheck.com comes up with. I was having a similar problem a few months ago - not being able to connect to other sessions. The problem went away with version 2.5v - Phoenix support didn't admit or deny complicity. Router wise - I am hard wired with an ether-net connection. Maybe worth trying on your side?

oHhhh I am so in with this.

I have skype, all I've got to get now is Phoenix and a headset.

Any Ideas for the best places to buy these, Or what headset you'd recommend?

Thanks!


Edit: gettin the PHX from my LHS. Now for a headset.

Woohoo I'll feel just like a real pilot with the headset on!..........Wonder if I should wear a flight suit and helmet too!

Looks like things have taken off (lol). I miss having my class time. Maybe once I'm done with my new job training work schedule will allow me to re-join the flock.

Hi all,

I've seen the messages from others suggesting that if you are on the fence about buying phoenix, that the free lessons from CaptJac make it worth it. I totally agree with those posts! I've had 3 lessons with CaptJac so far and each one has led me to progress leaps and bounds faster than anything I've tried before.

I started out with a HoneyBee FP v2, just to have it dart all over the place crashing into things. I bought Phoenix even before I saw this thread because I was determined to do this RC Heli "thing". I had initial trouble just hovering in Phoenix.

I then saw this thread while I was looking for help with Phoenix and decided to give it a try.. It was free after all. Well, lessons with Jack have given me the confidence and skill to hover in the SIM and in real life. In just under a month I was able to take the skills learned in the sim with Jack into real life with my HoneyBee. I am now getting into figure 8 flights in real life and it feels great to think that I have come this far in just 1 month.

If you are having any trouble with any part of normal flight, Jack is here to help! Just send him a PM and schedule your first session, even if for some reason it's a total disaster (Don't know how it would be) it's still a win because you haven't paid anything. Good luck with your new addiction.

Hi Doc - got you booked for Friday - 8:00 pm. It will be a silent session though if you haven't added me to your Skype contact list -jackclarke- so far don't see you there.

Yes, I am available for that one... or G3.5. Evenings, Mountain time, I am available. As Jack said, teaching is way more fun than learning, and I enjoy it more than just flying around or watching people fly. It works the same way on RealFlight - except if you have G5 we just use the built-in voice chat feature.
