DX6I with flight sim

by Husks » Sat Oct 20, 2012 6:34 pm

Can somebody tell me how or if this transmitter can be used with a flight simulator trainer I.e. FMS?

The flight sim's plug into the trainer port on back of the DX6i.

Phoenix is the best helicopter flight simulator out there, hands down.

In the case of Phoenix, there is a cable with USB connector on one end, which goes to the computer and stereo plug on the other, that plugs into back of the Tx.

Note: You can not just make up your own cable for phoenix, as it has a copy protection dongle that must be in place to use the software.

+1 to Phoenix. Heliguy have them on an offer at the moment.

Great graphics, huge range of models to choose from. Great learning tool :wink:

Thanks, I can see the port now above the battery cover. Think I'm buying one of these very soon.

Sim practice is great for developing all important thumb memory - and when you bugger up you only have to wait 3 seconds for a total rebuild :lol:

But sim is not an end in itself - it's just another learning tool and needs to be used in conjunction with a viable heli.

And it's fun and keep the thumbs tuned on dark winter nights too! :wink:

Have both & they have been a great learning curve for me. Sim certainly helps with thumb memory. :lol:
