Fly Realflight on your Jeti radio without any wires

If you prefer to practise flying on sims with your "real" radio, you may be used to connecting your transmitter to your PC with a USB cable and matching trainer port plug. With today's technology we can forego the wires and control the sim wirelessly making life just a little easier. Here's a how-to for getting wireless control of Realflight using a Jeti Duplex radio system.

1. Purchase the Jeti interface cable

You'll need a cable to connect to the PC interface. There are two versions, a square style plug for connecting to the Interlink controller, and a round plug for connecting to the wired interface cable. These cables can be found on the Esprit Model webpage here.

2. Receiver and Power

You'll need a Jeti receiver for the transmitter to talk to. No need for anything fancy so just go with the R4i here. You'll also need a 5V source to power the receiver. You could use a standard receiver battery, but since the unit will be near your computer, you could modify a USB cable to power the receiver and never worry about running a battery down.

3. Radio Setup

Once you bind the receiver to your radio, you'll need to go into the menu to the Device Explorer screen. Click on your receiver and change the Serial Link to say PPM Positive. Set the output period for the PPM output of the receiver to 20ms. This allows it to talk properly to the computer.

4. Final Steps

Connect the interface cable to the receiver and to the Interlink controller or interface cable and power the receiver. Run Realflight and go to the Simulation menu and find the Select Controller button. Click it and choose JR, then click Edit to create a new profile in the software. You may want to make separate profiles in the radio and software for Airplanes and Helicopters. Now you can map the channels to the software and you are on your way to wireless simulator fun.

Wireless makes flying the simulator much more convenient. I did this with my Taranis and AeroFly a couple of years ago....
