I recently picked up a new PC and it only comes with USB ports.Does anyone know how to change/adapt the pin plug - in for the older GP RealFlight controller to USB or is a new controller in my future? If I can't adapt it I am considering selling the controller later next month. If anyone is interested. Let me know (please indicated price range you would offer).

For $10-$15 you can just buy a gameport card for the pc (chances are you'd have a PCI slot) Cheaper than buying a new controller

Gameport to USB

Another possibility is to pick up a gameport to USB adapter. It attaches to the end of the controller and connects to a free USB port. Radioshack carries them for around $20. This may be a better solution if you'd rather avoid opening your computer case (and voiding the warranty )

It's part number 26-164.
