**Very important note about my custom model installation:
If you wanted to install my custom creation add-on models from my website you'll need atleast latest version of Phoenix R/C version 5.5.l program else the models won't appear in the simulator model inventory.  If your program version is lower than that you'll need automatic or manual updates using provided Phoenix resources links above for download and support.

  1. Start/launch your PHOENIX R/C simulator, you will be greeted with medium sized panel pop-up which is the 'Phoenix R/C Launcher'.  Inside there will be some buttons on the panels, select and click the  "Advance" button.
