DX7 with Fatshark Predator Head Tracker?
I have a Spektrum DX7 that I'd like to use with the headtracker in my Fatshark Predators. There doesn't seem to be a straightforward way to accomplish this. Can anyone offer some advice?
If all else fails, I can use my Turnigy 9X, but I really like the feel of the DX7 better.

I'm not clear myself on the different versions of the DX7. I know most of the DX7s don't support selective trainer assignment on the higher channels needed for the HT to work (only the 4 primary controls) however the DX7s does support it.
You need to check to see if you have the Programmable Master function for all the controls. Your trainer menu needs to look like the attached screen shot of a DX8 - note the slave/master options for GER, AX1, AX2,AX3.
Maybe there is a f/w upgrade for the DX7 that allows this. I'd really welcome any input from DX7 users to help clarify what's going on with the DX7 models.

I called Horizon Hobby about my JR radio (it has the same issue as the DX7- only channels 1-4 available to the trainer port), and they said that JR and Spektrum have no plans to change the trainer systems. Then the guy said, IF Horizon decides to get into the FPV business and start selling FPV equipment, JR and Spektrum radios will have their trainer systems "upgraded". If there ain't any money in it for them, they ain't gonna spend the time to do it...

Thanks for the quick response.
Looks like the only option is to pay for a new tx / rx in a different brand.
Looking on Hobbyking the Turnigy 9x kit looks like the most economical.
