I understand the FMS is the best of these. Notwithstanding, in each case I get no reaction from the transmitter. What am I doing wrong, or must I do some sort of hand-shake link-up? Do I have to first do a T6 config?
Did you connect your interface to PC and turn the TX on first?
Most sims require interface to be recognised by PC system so it can be locked in whilst
program boots up - they will not recognise interface if enlivened after program has booted.
With regards to Simulators and interface, refer to sub section:
"Flight Simulators (Airplane, Heli & slope) & Sailing Simulators - Commercial & Freeware "
