With thanks in advance -

to be clear about these cables. The USB cable with the larger USB plug with the red led is for the Flight Simulator. This cable can be used with all versions of the Sky Tx from Sky5xx forward.

The "programming" cable with the simple USB plug has not changed for any of the versions of Skyartec Tx models 703 or 705.

We have seen some Tx with a bad connection on the internal connections for DIN connector that the Cable plugs into at the rear of the TX.

We have also seen some cables that have had intermittent connection issues but this is rare.

Have your dealer send you a new cable or two

You will need one of each of these cables to get both the programming and the flight simulator functions to work properly.

If you continue to have problems as you have explained do not disregard that you might have an issue with something not working in the Transmitter and it is not a cable issue.
