Default DX6i & FMS Sim

Hi All,

New guy here. I have been trying for the past few nights to get my DX6i to work with the FMS Sim with no luck at all. It seems that the program does not even recoginze the TX. I have downloaded the patch program but that does nothing at all..need some help...crashing for real is starting to really P*ss me off

My DX6i is working great with FS One. I had to buy the Spektrum "Wireless Flight Simulator Adapter", then plug that into the FS One USB adapter.

I've not tested the FMS Sim, but would guess that it is looking for USB input?

Perhaps you might get more help if you gave a few more details. I'm sure the Dx6i is a good radio but it can't just radio into the PC, it needs some sort of connection. What type of adaptor/connector are you using, what happens when you connect it up and what is "the patch program" you're trying with it ?

Hi Steve,

I downloaded the SmartPropoPlus and PPJoy as stated in another thread. I've tried using a USB connector and a stright connector as discribed by SmartProPus and get no response from the program (FMS) or the TX. I've have been to various sites and no one seems to be able to hook this up. I bought a cheap ESKY TX Sim last night so Im done with trying to use the DX6i for anything but flying (which I prefer to do anyway).

I am using a GWS cable, part # GWSFSM002. It cost 9.99 at the LHS. Works great, the only problem I had with it was when I started the simulator without having the Dx6i plugged in.
