Reply with quote

HI all. Well, I've finally taken the plunge into a 6ch Esky Belt CP V2 and was also wondering, does ANYONE know if there are any cables I can use to attached my EK2-0406G Transmitter to the Mac so I can also get some good practice in on Heli-X when the days are too rough out there ? I know Esky has a Sim but it's only 4 channel and I've seen Heli-X and a couple of other GREAT looking sims but there seems to be no USB cable around to attach the Esky trans through.

Any ideas or info would be GREATLY appreciated.

Neil.

As far as I know, the only simulation software available for the Mac is AeroFly. However, AeroFly only supports certain radios used in addition to their special USB interface:

There's a cable here that looks like it should work, but I can't make any guarantees as my only experience is with PC:

In regard to the Esky-brand simulator software, it looks like it's just FMS relabeled. Even though it only uses 4-channels from the transmitter, I believe you can still fly collective-pitch helis.

Thanks for your help Nick. I've installed Heli-X as the Mac Sim seems to be a good one so far.

Thanks for that cable link too it sure would be handy as I've only ever seen negatives on the Esky FMS and need something a limitless more accurate and versatile too so I hope I can get this all together and get a good Sim setup going for those days I can't get out and fly.

Looking forward to a great week ahead for sure. (After a Belt Cp V2 head rebuild LOL)

Neil

Hi Kymkstar,

Best link I can find is here:

http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9641&highlight=usb+converter

I use Aerofly PD (when not on ClearView) with the equivalent of a Dyman controller, just can't get the idle-up to work but all else is fine.

Tom.
