This Simulator Adapter can be used with any make of radio, even one with no trainer port and can be used as either a wireless or hard-wire Simulator Adapter. It can be used with any make of radio when used in conjunction with a reciever or can it be used with standard 3.5mm Jack Lead (supplied), supports XTR, Aerofly, FMS, Phoenix 3.0, 4.0, Realflight G3, G4, G5.
*Note: This is the update version with micro USB connector.
3.5mm Jack Lead

I'm using it on a windows machine with Realflight 7.5 which I also paid for so I have the interlink, I just wanted to use my t10j wirelessly without heaps of cords hanging from it. I've fabrecobled it together with this , the s-fhss orange rx, and a sbus to pwm (s2pw).
It functions well enough but it would be nice to get more than 7 CH thru so you could set up the Y U I O keys properly. If your planes fly and heli's just hit there start tappin those keys till it works.
Ideally this thing would :
*accept more channels 16 to start
* work with multiple radios (futaba jr etc ) without reversing
* avoid the S2PW SBUS to pwm converter because it nips ch8 and up.
*be able to emit the little red buttons output
You need to plug your interlink in anyways for the validations so my hopes of an easy to leave setup wireless simulator dongle for my futaba was a bit of a pipe dream. However not to discount this little box it got the job done albeit with a few extra steps. You need to use YUIO to do ch5678 and worse yet you need to validate with your registered interlink so you actually have a more cumbersome setup with an interlink, your futaba 10j, a keyboard , and a mouse. On the upside though it is a working futaba radio dongle its just not the easy plug and play solution like I was hoping for because I couldn't replicate the red button , or the nobs.
Id bet a buck the reason some people have problems setting it up is because when you switch the mode of it you need to replug in the usb cable. Plugging it into a receiver is how i used it and it gets set to wireless for that.
Its worth what it costs, but could be a really nice solution for people with nice radios for wireless sim controllers with their tx of choice for just a little bit of code and more input pins. If they made those changes and it worked with ppm/sbus you could avoid sending most of the cables for most users . But I like it , its a little cumbersome but i can fly wireless with my futaba now in 5 different sims.
Use it for Phoenix V5.x. After some tinkering, as I fly mode 4 which causes some channel confusion sometimes, it worked very well. Bought it for a friend however. Could not get it to work on friend's PC. Only throttle channel would work smoothly, all other channels ar completely erratic. Have not been able to solve just yet. Re-binding many times over did not help. Plugging in signal wires one by one did to analyse did not help. Maybe the USB not strong enough or not earthed properly. Still looking for solution. As mentioned. On my own PC it works flawlessly and I am having great fun with it. Finally being able to do away with the clumsy cable/trainerport connection.I confirm this worked fine with vrc pro and my trackstar ts3t radio. it can also work with your own radio if it have dsc input (mine doesn't so I needed wireless connection)Good product but no disc comes with this simulator, where to find crack version software many people don't know. Better if HK include a disc along with this simulator.Works really well. Build is a little flimsy, but works flawlessly. Even though it says that it only works with RealFlight G3/4/5. I could make it work with RealFlight 7.5. The only trick is to start the 9-in-1 unit switch in RealFlight mode, after the program is done loading, change the switch position to XTR. You can then calibrate your transmitter and fly without any issue in XTR mode. Remember when starting RealFlight program you have to keep the unit in RealFlight mode and when you want to calibrate/fly switch the mode to XTR.Cheap, crappy documentation, but works great in wired mode via minijack socket (connected to Graupner MZ-12 set to DSC mode).
The first three modes (XTR, RF and Aerofly) all emulate joystick devices (on Linux and Win7 both without installing extra drivers) with 4, 6 and 7 axes respectively plus a set of buttons. Four or five of the transmitter's channels (mine has 6) map to axes, the rest to buttons. The Phoenix mode is recognised as a USB HID device but doesn't appear to do anything.
Doesn't look like it includes the right wires to connect more than two or three channels to a traditional receiver but I don't understand the provided documentation on this. Maybe easier with S.BUS/SumD/etc. (if this is supported).super , good thank youI ordered two of these to run Phoenix V5 with my two Orange T6 tx. One for my grandson.
I can't get either one to work.
I need help.
EdGreat product, works as described flawlessly with all the sims. I use it for Phoenix and you can do all the updates and still use it.i have a FrSky Taranis Plus (X9D) connected via the training port, calibration of 6 channels without problems, switches are not recognized.
Use of switches only with channel override 5 and 6 via mixer possible.
Works nice, 6 channels via trainer port,
7 channels with wireless mode and extra receiver (not included) - what happend to channel 8 in wireless and the other 26 channels? A nice extension to this adapter could be the free software SmartPropoPlus which feeds a virtual joystick over trainer port/sound card audio in and can be customized individually to the signals of your radio.
