Using a USB cable, an audio cable and a servo extension you can make an adapter between the Phoenix USB adapter and the PPM receiver without having to modify either one.

Here are a couple photos of my adapter. Ground and 5V is supplied to the receiver for power from the USB connector. Ground and the PPM signal from the receiver is supplied to the Phoenix USB adapter.

You can simplify what I have done if you use a battery for the receiver instead of USB power.
