Which Sim For 3D Foamies, Etc
Realfight or Phoenix or? Looking for Shockflyer model and similiar 32-39" models?
Also, do any Sims have a FW Gyro mode?

Not sure of RF, but Phoenix v5 does simulate the new SAFE system in a few planes.
I fly 3d in Phoenix and have to say doing it in the sim is much easier than doing it at the field.
My RL 3d planes have gone from a foam build 3d Lil Ripper from the scratch build section on this forum to an Eflite Extra 330 BP, I can barely hover my Extra whereas I can hover pretty much any 3d plane in the sim for extended periods with a bit of drift, my Extra I have only been able to manage less than a minute stable hover even in dead calm conditions.
I think the sim has helped me though, and really it may not matter which you chose, I'm sure one is possibly better than the other in some respect, but I have notice since using the sim I am more confident in stick movements when the bird gets into trouble IRL vs not using a sim.
Phoenix does have the Eflite 4-site, Zevko Edge, reflex and a few other shock flier foamies though.
Real Flight almost certainly has the same, in Real Flight people are allowed to completely build their own models and share them with the community, there are tons of ready made models waiting to be added to RF.
Have a look at the swap pages on Real Flight. http://www.knifeedge.com/forums/downloads.php
