Futaba 7C 2.4 not sim compatable beware!

Well traded up my 6ex 2.4g to a futaba 7c 2.4.
Got the planes all programmed in no problems.. pluged in the brand new GWS lead and am unable to calibrate for FMS, Clearview, or windows game controller..
Basically i get to the calibration page and its like going crazy like the sticks are going mad... now my 6ex worked a treat....
I phone up Ripmax today who are the UK importers to speak with there tech people..
It turns out that according to them this is normal some transmitters will work & some will not.. due to the low voltage given by the buddy output.. so its pure luck?
He then said that a number of people are reporting problems with Futaba 7c.
and that it shouldn't be used for simulators anyway.. only to connecting other transmitters together..
so here i am having spent a sodding fortune.. to make matters worse I cant even get my old transmitter to calibrate using the phono socket.. vista wont let me load in the drivers for PPJOY..
Anyone else heard of this problem with Futaba 7c? im thinking of returning it to get my old 6EX back...

any help apreciated..

thanks

Andy
