Goggles and Headtracker

There are a number of headtrackers that connect via the training port to Futaba transmitters. But how when using them do you connect a safety pilot who is not wearing goggles, as the training port is occupied?

The only one I have tried doing that with is the TrackR1 from Aeropix. You have to make your own connector/adapter.

It's worth mentioning that AnthonyRC who makes the TrackR1 has been working on something to do the job. AFAIK some units are being beta tested last I heard (or think I heard)

Really a neat addition. I've taken off and accidentally crossed the flight line in seconds while tryin to get my orientation. You would think that you could just take off in a straight line, but on a windy day that doesn't always happen.

Camship - are you suggesting switching the trainer port from the headtarcker to the safety pilots transmitter or is there some way of leaving the safety transmitter permanetly connected?
