Dx7s with Clearview
This is how I got my DX7s to work with Clearview.
First I got this cable:http://www.rctoys.com/rc-toys-and-pa...RS-WIRING.html
Now keep in mind that CV is both a heli AND airplane sim. Change the model in the Tx to "Acro".(I know the airplane icon seems wrong but CV does all the CCPM mixing) I named it "Flight Sim". Scroll down to "switch select" and change them as follows: Trainer - Inh, Flap - Inh, F mode - gear, Mix - Aux 1, Gear - Inh, Knob - Inh
Make sure Trainer mode is "Slave"
My present computer is Win 7 so here is how to set it up too: First unplug any game controllers to be sure there will be no confusion. Plug in the USB side of cable to computer. Then plug the mini jack end into the Tx. Win 7 will recognize new hardware. Click "Start" on left side of task bar. Click on "devices and printers" You should see a game pad icon called "PPM to USB adapter" Right click on it. Click on "game controller settings" You can then click on "properties", "settings" and "calibrate" The axises don't jibe with what is on the Tx, but do this anyway or else windows will forget the settings and next time you run your sim you will have to repeat this step. Be sure to save after calibrating.
Now open Clearview, click on "settings" then "controller set up". Pick "PPM#" as the controller. Then set the controls as follows:
Throttle= X axis
Rudder= reversed, Z rotation
Aileron= reversed, Y axis
Elevator= Z axis
Enable stick auto centering
Idle up/Flaps set ON - X rotation set OFF - X rotation
Throttle Hold/gear set ON - Y rotation set OFF - Y rotation
Then "Calibrate" and your done! Took me about 3 weeks to figure all of this out! Hope it helps!

I guess the key thing is to set your Tx to "Acro" or airplane. When I first set it up, I had all the control axises but none of the switches worked, and sometime the sim helli would go to full power and stay there. Seemed like something was conflicting. So I remembered having my mSR set on Acro mode for the longest time and decided to try it! It may be that it is possible to do so on all CCPM computer radios that have both helis and planes available! Have to swallow your pride and set the Tx to "Planks"!

Transmitters and Flightsims - Try this first!
I've seen plenty of people asking how to set up their transmitters with a flight sim. I had success getting my Dx7s to work perfectly with Clearview. I don't know if my steps will work with other radios or sims, but maybe one can learn and maybe get some insight to their particular equipment by reading this. More to it than plugging your Tx into the computer and expecting it to work!
