Custom Phoenix RC Flying Sites based on the HHAMS Aerodrome

This is a follow-up to the custom airfields I made for RealFlight. This time I modeled the HHAMS Aerodrome on Long Island for Phoenix RC. One of the flying sites has been accepted by Phoenix RC as an official flying site. You can simply download it from the simulator itself, or you can manually download it at this page. See the end of this article for more information.

Manual download Instructions: Each photofield comes in a ZIP file. Just click on it in your browser, and save this zip file. Then unzip it and you’ll find a .PKG file. Launch Phoenix RC, but do not click on the button that starts the simulator. Instead, click on “Advanced”, and then choose “Install an update” to pop up a file chooser dialog. Find the .PKG file and install that. Once this is done, you will find the custom flying site in the airfield chooser in the simulator. If you have trouble installing the file, please see the end of this article for detailed screenshots.

Detailed Instructions

As mentioned before, one of the flying sites has been accepted by Phoenix RC as an official flying site. You can simply download this one from the simulator itself via menu System | Check for Updates, or you can manually download it at this page.

Manual download page

As this article is expanded in the future, it will include more flying sites. Not all of them will be submitted to Phoenix RC. So you will have to manually download some of these in the future, outside of the official Phoenix RC download page.

Each photofield comes in a ZIP file with a long, descriptive name indicating field, date and time of the day, like this: hhams_aerodrome_2016-04-10_10am_phoenixrc-pkg.zip

Just click on it in your browser, and save this zip file. Then unzip it and you’ll find a .PKG file.

Launch Phoenix RC, but do not click on the button that starts the simulator. Instead, click on “Advanced >>”, and then choose “Install an update” to pop up a file chooser dialog.

Find the .PKG file and install that. Once this is done, you will find the custom flying site in the airfield chooser in the simulator.

About Xinhai Dude 辛亥生

The name Xinhai Dude 辛亥生 is a pun in Chinese, as it means both “he who was born in Xinhai” as well as “he who studies Xinhai”. I had an ambitious plan to write something about the great Xinhai Revolution of 1911, thus my blog https://xinhaidude.com. But after an initial flurry of activities the initiative petered out. One day I will still carry it through. But for now, this website has turned into a conglomerate of my work on various topics of interest to me, including travel pictures, RC model airplane flying, ice skating, classical music composition, science fiction short stories, evolution and atheism.
