browsing the Internet I have found a Freeware R/C Model flight
simulator from Germany, which has an English language setting.
It's great! There are hundreds of models available out there on
the Internet for it.
have researched how to make a radio Transmitter work with it.
background in computing helped here and I am now confident that
I can produce a lead for almost any transmitter that has a buddy
lead. Nothing the odd transistor, resistors and some shielded
cable could not sort out. My leads plug into the trainer 5 or
6 pin DIN socket on the TX and the other end plugs into the parallel
(printer) port on the PC. A few pre-requisites on the PC setting
and off you go.
wind or rain you can still get your transmitter out and fly to
your hearts content. I have successfully made this for Futaba,
Sanwa, JR and Fleet PPM radios so far.
has taken a lot of research into how to get the transmitters to
work with it, so I decided to make life easier for people and
now I am offering the TX lead for what ever your PPM TX is, along
with the support to get it working properly.
costs just £34 + P&P (£1.50)!!!
that should keep you happy during those winter months. Great to
keep your hand in or to learn the basics before flying for real.
I have sent the ED my screen shots, the ones he doesn't use are
on my web site. Please note that I have tested this on all Windows
platforms and it works on W95/98/ME/XP and 2000. However XP and
2000 can only use the latest version 7 of the software if you
want to use your transmitter.
have been given full permission by the creators of FMS to supply
it with my leads (thanks very much to them) and also to supply
many models (thanks to the authors of those). I will be resuming
the supply of a CD containing all of the software and about 300
models once all permissions
are double checked. This will add £1 to the cost of the
lead purely to cover its production cost - as soon as this is
again available I will update the ED.
