So since the t28 and champ use the same tx, I'm assuming I can bind the champ tx to thee t28 right?

I do plan to get a dx6I sometime in september..

Just want to make sure because my lhs does have the t28 bnf and I'm sure I can handle it!

Yes you can use the champ tx with a t-28.

The cable is usb on one end and a mini phono type on the other. I'll look at it when I get home. You can get the cable at Phoenix and you can get the S/W there too without the TX (much cheaper).

Phoenix sim

BTW, Phoenix is really good and runs on my home quad core with nvidia graphics and my old hp notebook with a pentium M and 128mb discrete video.

Dude, I painted it yellow! It was white n' red before I broke out the brush. In the mid-50s, the Navy made them yellow, maybe so they could find them if they crashed into the ocean water?

Haha GJO, "Hopefully I don't end up with a yellow one like mac hehe".

I can imagine Mac going "WTH! What's wrong with the yellow! I worked hard on that!!!"

Man, that cracked me up!

Blu, thanks for your reply. I don't really wanna buy one since I have both cables at home. I just need to know which wires to join. Since the one you are talking about is a mono cable, it only has one wire right?

So ideally I should be able to connect it to one of the USB cable's white or green wires and all should work?

Do you know what wire is used inside the cable? Thanks!

I did some research on the cable, and it seems this only works on XP or earlier. Sheesh!

This is discrimination against linux machines!! Or at least Win7!

Anyhow, I'll have to dig out my windows xp machine from somewhere in my room lol

If I am forced to try it on a windows 98, I'll probably have to look under the floor boards haha!

Mac, buddy, I know you painted it yellow. And it looks incredible. I was just cracking a joke because the one reason its yellow is because you crashed it and it needed a big makeover!

lol @ GJOsik

You guys want to see a pic of my runway?
I've been taking off, landing, and doing touch and goes all evening. Had some good ones, and had a couple nose overs. But best part is, I had tons of fun. It's a thrill landing that P-47, she comes in hot

I think it qualifies as a micro.. it's only 29.5" wingspan. Or am I not allowed to talk about it. I already know talking about my EDF's is off limits.. it says so in the title.

Yes, but I had a body, wing, and tail set waiting as well....so the plan was to make at least one of these T-28s (below) and since we all love the Champ, I decided on yeller.
