Hi, will RC Desk Pilot work with the 6ch FMS USB controller found at http://www.amazon.com/dp/7293000014/...I1BZTW6CDQPF30?
I am just getting back into the hobby and I like what I have heard and read about this simulator, but I have not bought a transmitter yet. I have a Windows 7 64 bit Toshiba laptop. Hopefully Santa, me, will surprise me with one under the tree. If not, recommendations please. Thank You!!

Hi Michael,
any USB controller should work, so this one should be fine.
Cheers,
Davy

Hi Davy how are you?
Michael763 recommended your sim and so I downloaded it and it looks really cool. Thanks.
However, when I plugged in my RealFlight Interlink controller, RC Desk Pilot did not find it. Will your sim work with my controller?
Thanks,
Shawn

Realflight is not a game controller, which you need for RCDP.

error when executing rc desk pilot

Hi,
I recently downloaded rc desk pilot and am getting a query box and then an error message when I try to open it. The query reads:

Switching to the Direct3D reference rasterizer, a software device that implements the entire Direct3D feature set, but runs very slowly. Do you wish to continue?

Followed by the obvious options of yes or no. When I click on yes, the following error message comes up:

Failed creating the Direct 3D device.
Error in Application -2005530518 (D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE) at Microsoft. DirectX.Direct3D.Device..ctor(Int32 adapter, Device Type device Type, Control renderWindow, CreateFlags behaviorFlags, PresentParameters [ ] presentationParameters) at dj.a(a4 A_0, Device A_1, Boolean A_2)

Unfortunately, I'm not tech savvy enough to know precisely what this means but am guessing I've got something on my system that's unable to communicate with the download. Does anyone know what my problems is and what I need to do to correct it?

Thanks for any assistance!

hi, dont know if many people view this thread anymore but, my devo ten works ok now with this sim, just having problems assighning the channels in the game to the correct channels on my Tx.. got throttle and aielerons kinda working right, but difficult to get things right, im guessing its just trial and error, and channels are different on different transmitters?
thanks..
james.

Pretty much. That's what I've done for two different radios. Set it up, wiggle things, see what actually moves, and swap things around 'till all the right bits wiggle. About as scientific as hitting things with a hammer and calling them nails, but it worked out ok in the end.

Hi guys, my old dell dimension 1100 ain't managing to run this with the onboard graphics, I've picked up an 8Mb video card, will this be enough?

I've been gifted this rather handy FlySky-USB dongle and I really want to use it with rcdeskpilot.
