Futaba Trainer Cable

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
We have a new member with a new Futaba Tranny and the connector is a small rectangular DIN plug. Our trainer has a traditional 5 pin DIN plug(multi pin DIN round cylindrical plug). Does anyone know where can I find information on these connectors to get a compatible connection between radios?

Also, I have a realflight cable for the Flight SIM box(Futaba - Multi pin rectangular DIN) to my JR radio and this cable came with another short cable to convert the 2 conductor jack to 5 PIN DIN (traditional Cylindrical plug). My question is - Would this cable work as a buddy cable from Futaba OLD (5 PIN DIN) to Futaba NEW(multi pin rectangular DIN)????

Buddy box cable wiring

Hi Big Mike,

The wiring and describe the Buddy Box (Trainer) operation and channel assignments between Manufacturers is here:


You could skip directly to the wiring page, but its best to read up to it, there is lots of useful information. I think the biggest problem you will have is finding the connector.

Hope this helps.
