I can confirm that the Hacker USB interface works with the BeastX. Connect it with a female to female cable with the centre pin disconnected.

!!! Attention !!!
You have to make sure then that the middle connector (power / red) is not connected (pull it out of the connector), otherwise you might burn down your PC's USB hub by powering the complete Heli electronics including servos from it.

BTW:
The circuit with the diode was wrong, as the diode was inserted in the wrong direction.You also missed the pull up on the single line and you have to use a schotky diode that has not more than 0.2v to 0.3v @ a couple of mA. (e.g. BAT64-02W...)
