News - Going Wireless on Phoenix Sim!

*Up-Dated Information*

"xygax" has been working on a wireless adapter for the Phoenix Sim and it is now completed and will be available Mid Sept. 2010.



What you need...
A copy of phoenix and its dongle, Your DX6I , DX7, DSX9 etc. and an AR6100 receiver.

How it works....
The signals from a 6100 are consecutive and the wireless adapter rebuilds these into a composite PPM signal that Phoenix needs. It will work from 5 to 9 channels just depends on the RX you plug into it.

How to make it work...
Plug the 6100 into the adapter and the phoenix dongle then plug into a USB port (the rx gets its power from the USB as does the phoenix dongle) Bind the RX to your radio and set up Phoenix to your radio as normal. Then you can throw the whole thing behind your PC because you don't need to see it again. When you turn the radio off Phoenix will tell you its unplugged. It just works. We have had a couple on trial since Xmas.

"xygax" also provided me with the following information.

"It will probably work with other sims that connect to a trainer port but at present I have only proved it with Phoenix."

"The prototypes have been on trial for over a year now and proved reliable and the production size batches will be on order this week. Estimated delivery is Mid. Sept. 2010."

"I have ordered 250 units to be manufactured this week (at considerable expense) and they are due to me Sept. 16, 2010."

"International shipping is not yet known but I will bolt that down in next few days. They will be available via Midlands / Fastlads in UK at the moment not sure about state side yet."

"I am in the process of sorting a website with the PayPal links on it but its a bit early for that at the moment."



Should you wish to order yours, you can contact [email protected]. Please note that the units will not be available till Mid. Sept. 2010.

    Not yet. but it will work with 35Mhz gear. The outputs on Futaba come arrive overlaping and that needs to be treted diferently to re-sequence them.

    Looking forward to getting my hands on one of these. Since I switched to the DX7 SE I haven't been able to use my sim.

    Are any specific drivers needed?
    I am VERY interested in this to try and use my DX7 with my Mac and Heli-X.
    This is an exceptionally appealing device and fills a huge void.
    For 20 quid you can't go wrong, get yourself an HK cheapy DSM2 Rx and you have a nice, cheap wireless dongle.
    I applaud your work.
