    Pros: Really good and simple to use I tried on FS THX9 and it has worked works good on windows xp Windows 7 had some compatibility issues. A lot of cables provided so it is compatible with most of the tX

    Cons: Should also support completely windows 7 with drivers. Not much of a problem if you know how to change the compatibility in windows 7

    Other: Good for the money. it should have support for 6 channel. Works with all transmitters available, Cheap and works with FMS

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: In general, it works as expected. I have installed FMS from the disk (shpped with the cable), no drivers required at all. After setting it up from FMS menu, FMS succesfully detects it and after a minue I can fly with my radio.
    I have tested it for my transmitters:
    - Futaba 3PKS, 3 channels, 40Mhz;
    - Futabe 6exa, 6 channels, 72 Mhz;
    - Spectrum 6di, 6 channesl, 2.4 Ghz.
    The different cables fit all of them. At least, at works fine for Windows XP 32-bits.

    Cons: I believe it supports up to 8 channels. It means only that it can process the signal from the transmitter correctly, but... FMS sees 4 channels only. It is quite enough for planes, but not for advanced helicopters with 5 channels.
    CD with the cable in Chinnese only! I can't ever copy it to my PC because I can't read it. Fortunately, as I said, you needn't drivers for the device. You can download FMS from the internet.

    Other: You better spend a few bucks for it and learn how to fly at your PC than crash your plane at the first fly at field!

    Pros: Easy to install, on XP and Vista. Plug and Play, literally.
    Half the price of other sim cables.

    Cons: 8 channels, only 4 are usable, at least with my DX-7.

    Other: Get it. It's cheap and it works.

  • Works great with Esky V4 Lama 2.4 TX and Art-Tech

    posted by kenv98 on 00:55:54 G9T 24/09/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works with V4 Lama 2.4 Ghz transmitter Works with Art-Tech ETC62 2.4 Ghz transmitter comes with most adapters

    Cons: Doesn't come with a walkera 22e tx adapter

    Other: Works with most of my 2.4 ghz transmitters for V4 Lama, and Art Tech ETC62. It also worked for my FM Walkera 22e transmitter but I had to make my own adapter. Basically an S-Video cable soldered to a mono audio plug. It's exactly like the esky adapter but the walkera uses different pins on the svideo end.

    posted by nasukaren on 00:47:56 G6T 17/06/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Cheapest USB to transmitter connector out there. Comes with all the cables you will ever need. Plug and play on the Mac. The FMS software that comes with it is PC-only, so I use it with the Heli-X simulator.

    Cons: Resolution is -- as the other reviewers say -- not the highest. Nonetheless, fine for basic use. Also, this is only 4 channels, so give up hope of having a gyro switch or throttle hold.

    Other: Good for the money. Would be fantastic if it was 6 channel. Works with almost every transmitter under the sun, with all the adapter cables.

    Pros: Simple USB plugin for RC controllers.
    Worked right out of the package and no problems.
    No need for any special drivers, or excessive tinkering.
    FMS is a FREE simulator with thousands of free downloadable models and landscapes.

    Cons: Only RC simulator program I've found that works with it is FMS.

    Other: If you want a simple device to connect your RC controller to a simulator on your computer, this is it!

    posted by dddaidl on 09:25:12 G6T 22/06/2008 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It is cheap and easy, and it works. There is really no need for the cd, it does not contain drivers, it is just plug and play.

    Cons: Supports only 4 channels, not 4-8; horrible resolution, the signal is a little jittery, and the jack that plugs into the connector takes some moving around to get it to work, but what do you expect for this price.

    Other: For the price it does a good job, even though i think they need to change the product description.

  • Complicated with my futaba but works

    posted by IACEI on 06:38:46 G4T 24/04/2008 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - Works with Flight Model Simulator - Super cheap in comparison with ebay or stores - adapters for many controllers - Should work with Aerofly, at least with a crack (I was about to use it) - Simulates a classic joystick in Windows XP

    Cons: - No manual
    - Only instructions on the CD in Chinese.....
    - Bad packaging

    Other: Works!

  • Great Simulator cable

    posted by Fruuz on 18:00:45 G4T 15/04/2008 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Great cable for simulator. Will work with FMS sim definitely and will also work with realflight G3.5 but some modification is required. Really happy to get this to work. Now I can practice flying at home and it is realistic enough to learn the basic manuvers for heli and plane.

    Cons: I dont see any con with this product, elsewhere its selling for at least $20, so I'm not complaining

    Other: if you want to learn how to fly rc, get this cable and you wont regret it.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Seems to work pretty well with my Futaba 6DA radio, did not like the radio for my BCX2 but others have mentioned compatibility issues with spectrum radios as well. Works well with FMS.

    Cons: None really as of yet, I am not too bothered about it only being 4 channel.

    Other: Great price and easy to hook up, works for me.
