I can't use the keyboaed either Tom. I use the RealFlight controller (hate the 'cartoon' software, uninstalled that) but it was a gift from a friend. What I like about this controller is that it runs completely from the USB socket whereas the DX6i has to have battery power on to work. Also it does save wear & tear on the DX6i. Difference in flight is hardly noticeable, your brain seems to adapt like driving 2 cars.

Here's a link so you can see it. If you do go for a USB controller make sure that it is a 6 channel one. The 4 channel are cheaper but restrict your use of ClearView. These controllers come up on ebay at times but like I said make sure that it's a 6 channel one. Here's a good ebay example. I would use GoofBay to put in a snipe of $20.10 at 2 secs to go. Could cost a lot less, I got 8 servos for $0.01, came in yesterdays post.

Tom.

Too windy to go outside and fly the smaller heli's and I dont have the cable for the ClearView software yet. Looks like indoor play time. Thought about going to Wal Mart and getting a controller for a PS3 but my body isn't complying to the lets go go order. Maybe later. I did get to take the 3 chanel DH 9100 out last night before it got dark. It's amazing how little wind it takes to make it climb on it's own. Thought I was going to lose it in the trees.

Does anyone here use a PS3 controller for ClearView?

Save writing it all out Tom,

Try this link to a thread on the ClearView Forum.

I spend hours on it Tom. So much better than mindless games.

Well I'm on it now using a PS3 controller my brother gave me. I have rudder, throttle,aileron, and elevator. Haven't figured out the idle up and throttle hold. Not that I need idle up. Having a toughtime just staying in the air. I could use some help on the settings. What kind of rate and expo settings to use. This PS3 thing is real touchy. Thanks all.

Hi Tom,

Rate & expo are set in ClearView not on the controller.

If you want a 'really easy to fly' heli, then my own "Wee Jock" is the one. You'll find it here at the bottom of my models. (Scroll well down the page.)

Tom.

Thats in the sim list? I'll look for the next time I turn it on. I need an easy one to start with. That PS3 controller is really hard to use.

How do I use those models? Do I have to download them to my PC or something?

Depends which ones you mean Tom.

If you mean the stock ones they come when you register the software.

If you mean the others (by my friends and me), then you have to download and install them. Instructions are usually in the 'readme' file supplied.

If you need some detailed instructions Tom, just give me a PM. Sure we can sort it out.
