I've got this sim with a usb adaptor for my Hitec Radio.
It's ok for a beginner trying to learn the basics, orientation and all, but the mechanics are not all that good for advanced flying. What do you expect for free software. It's still fun to play with.

Merry Christmas

well personally i have it and like it, if you download more planes it's alot of fun and it actuallyis helping me learn to hover because i was flying and trying to hover and when it did something i knew what to do because FMS taught me that if it starts to fall backwards give it elevator etc!

I too like fms very much, and I would like an interface because am playing with a gamepad but it is not as handy as a transmitter.I tried to make one but it did not work. I am using a futaba system. :

I have an fms cable that I bought from Dennis Koroluk. I no longer use it because I bought the aerofly pro sim. The cable has a futaba plug. If you are interested, let me know.

I have FMS loaded and my grandchildren like to use it with a joystick. While that is not the same as a transmitter, they are getting the idea--and a couple of them want to now try the "real thing." Left-right and up-down in different situations is something they have learned pretty well already. Certainly worth the price! :P Dzl

Greetings from Sunny Queensland.

Here is the link to the instructions to make the interface.

This interface is very simple to build.

Regards from Graeme Marion.
