Phoenix Simulator Downloads

Since PhoenixSim is now fully out of business and there is no customer support left whatsoever I consider it to be abandonware and I feel I can share files for support and community purposes to those still using the software. You still need a dongle to use it. If original copyright holders wish to take these files down for a valid reason they can contact me.

Dongle is mandatory (Almost)!

In order to use Phoenix you will need a dongle. These are widely available in Ebay, search for “22 in 1 simulator” and look for PhoenixRC compatible dongle with suitable adapter cables to your radio. Or make it wireless connecting a receiver to it, receiver can be powered with USB.

You can also use any joystick or anything else that is seen as joystick if you use a emulator. Download the emulator HERE and check THIS video on how to use it. As an example Spektrum WS2000 works fine.

Server location and speed

RCT server where these files are hosted is located in Germany. Download speed to my home in Finland with 1Gb connection is ~750Mbps. Your speed may vary but if it’s slow it’s not the servers fault.

How to install and update Phoenix Sim

There is a step-by-step description now available HERE including

  • Installation from DVD-package
  • Updating to version 6.0 i
  • Installing custom models and sites

Fly with XBOX controller

There is a possibility to also use XBOX controller. All necessary files are located HERE. Instructions are inside zip-files. Please note that Iäm unable to give any support, I do not have one myself.


Note that I am by no means a Phoenix Sim guru. I just host the files so people still can find them. Most often asked question is “does it run on Windows 10?” and the answer i can give “Well yes, at least it runs on my Win10. Install with “Run as administrator” and you should be fine.” All support questions should be asked on Phoenix-related forums like the one on Helifreak HERE as for example.

I do not know how to setup Phoenix with your transmitter. Please go to Helifreak or RCGroups to find out or ask if you lost that information along the years.

Also please take a minute to read THIS.

Fly online – Yes, available!

Phoenix Sim is also still online! Ballie from Netherlands has grabbed the domain and is hosting a server! More info here. So the native online flying is again possible, enjoy Phoenix with friends again!

Who said Phoenix is dead?

Is something missing?

If you think something is missing drop me a line here. If you for example have some interesting model-files please attach them so we can make them available for others too.
