Can I use my transmitter as a controller? If so can someone guide me to the correct cable? If not, what are the alternatives?

Any advice appreciated...

You can interface your TX to the PC by using any RC-USB interface available from most good model shops and online from a host of suppliers.

Alternatively you can use a simple cable and your soundcard with some software that creates a virtual joystick on the computer - google SmartPropoPlus and have a read of the hardware section before downloading the software. Personally I've not used it as I made my own USB interface as outlined in this thread
