I could write a list a mile long explaining why I want it. But I'll spare you. Just know that I think It would be an awesome feature. There is not a whole lot you can do to keep phoenix the king. But just 1 or 2 sceens in full FPV would pay big dividends toward keeping phoenix on top of comp. Oh and lets get some new full size heli's :Bang

Based on how the phoenix engine works FPV cannot be added.

Yes, that would involve rewriting a lot of code. Mind you, AFPD and Aerofly 5 do have 3D sceneries.

fpv is very simple, it's easier than flying looking from the ground. Orientation never changes.

I have a plane and a tricopter i fly fpv, took all of 10 seconds to get used to hovering first person.

No doubt that's true in the real world, but introducing FPV to Phoenix would involve coding 3D sceneries and graphics engine.

I could give a plethora of reason's I'd hate to see fpv be attempted in phoenix. I'll spare the list as the phoenix team is well aware of the time, money, and risks involved with such an endeavor. fpv will probably never happen

I would much rather they spend their efforts on adding models. Considering the snail's pace at which they're introducing new models, other than micros, I'm not sure they could handle the rewrite necessary for FPV in a timely manner.

Yes please more models not FPV.
Blade 120SR
Blade 450
ParkZone Spitfire(new release)

yes more models it is crime that they have not got a Three Dee Rigid in there, the canopy is so unique for visibility training it would be very helpful to have this, 10x more than adding yet another Align variant that looks very similar to all the rest.

Also I'd like them to do work to reduce the control lag instead of adding random flying fields and strange models like quads etc.

Another vote for NOT doing FPV. I do not believe it would add anything to the practical application and use of this simulator and would only serve to distract the devs from keeping this the best RC sim out there.

Suggest the new Blade 450 3D and Trex 600E Pro. I don't see where FPV helps with RC. You need the ground based stationary view to train orientation.

FPV...:dontknow Isn't that for Video Games ????? I thought Phoenix was a RC flight simulator.... Hmmmmm guess I was confused when I bought mine....:oops:
