How to control a RC helicopter directly through transmitter

Hi, Dear friends:
Thank you for your attention.
I am a beginner for RC transmitters. Can I ask a question about how to send commands using computer to a RC helicopter through the transmitter?

My transimitter is Hitec Optic 6 Sport, and the helicopter is a Draganflyer V Ti RC. I can use the FMS simulator for the training purpose through the trainer port in Hitec transmitter.

How can I send the commands in COMPUTER through the transimtter to the Draganflyer? In other words, how I can control the draganflyer directly by computer software and do not have to manually use the joysticks in the transmitter? What kind of hardware and software do I need to make the computer control the helicopter?

Thank you so much.

I think there is something like that but you'll have to research it on your own.... I'd suggest you Google it.

Thank you, I have tried to search the web, but until now, I do not find any detailed instructions on that problem. I know MIT and Vanderbilt did that before, I have tried to contact them and obtained some suggestions.

What I have known is that it can be done, I have tried to install IntCon to control the draganflyer by computer, It seems that program is written in German and it does not work for me yet.
