Default Apprentice 15e equivalent in Phoenix?

I currently have Phoenix 3.0.s. It looks like the first plane I buy for training will be an Apprentice 15e. This is not in the list of Phoenix planes. Is there an equivalent model I could use with some tweeking to come up with something to practice on? If so, what model and what mods should I make?

Probably the Multiplex Mentor would be most similar to the Aprentice on that sim.

Thanks newjak. The Mentor is the one I have been flying the most, so I'm glad to hear that. I assume then it has similar flight characteristics.


But it's a tail dragger. Any tricycle gear planes you would suggest for similar take off and landings?

I haven't flown either of those planes in real life. Within the program you have the ability to fine tune the flight characteristics to your liking. There is another high wing trainer with tricycle gear but it is a glow model.
