Funny, I'm using the REFLEX flight sim since a very long time already (more than 10 years) with my Futaba FC-28. One of the best flight sims in my opinion, specially for helis. Was the first one with a photo-realistic environment.

I had a DX6 and a DX7 in my hands last weekend but had no scope with me :-)

so hardly no power supply in that plug, so you have to figure out another external battery pack ? or install another connector with pins that can handle battery power without risk of shorts and falling out, that is what I would have done sinse the DX6/DX7 will contain a battery voltage alarm or manegement of some sort that can indicate the charge, right ?

NEWS: the 15km FPV range record video have finally been approved,
the price will be send to the winner next monday !
so now the next range to beat is 20km to get the next price.
Would like to see a video of that record,

this site I just found :

click transmitters to find your TX and see the connection to get PPM out
you can on many transmitters also sneak out the power supply to power the external UHF transmitter box.
I have a meeting tomorrow at 11AM with a DX7 owner, so no need to wait much longer dutchboy :-)

OK, now tested: DX7 - MX12 - MX24
they all uses the same 3.5mm jack, and they all have an AC coubled
PPM output (to be compatible with that, I added a resistor inside my TX box)

the PPM frames are all with exactly the same timing as any other systems I have seen so far, and they also use a CONSTANT frame time.
so no problems !

exisisting systems sold dont have this new resistor mounted, so if existing customers want to use a DX7 - MX12 - MX24 or similar, they can simply ask me for modify instructions.

all systems shipped from today, will be compatible !!

remove the two big Z and it should work :-)
it is normally not smart to write full not cryptet email adr in forums,
it will give the person more spam :-)

if you have a landline phone number and contry code, I can call up for free and explain you all you like to know, if needed.

If had not bought my FPV set up from someone else, I would of for sure bought his.

Been almost a month and still nothing. My supplier is the worst at communication. Basically there is Zero.

However Thomas is just the opposite.

Buy from him. I hope he would mail it asap

what is your delivery time anyways?
Will you return my call if I leave a message?
do you anwer your emails or phone calls?

The company I bought mine off of does not.
But supposedly deliveres and is legit.
And if I don't get it my VISA said I am covered.

Sorry Thomas
wish I bought from you!

Thanks David, yes I am super fast with service,
I often suggest to call people up, an simply chat voice for as long as is needed to get all ideas and needs talked over with potential customers, even if they dont purchase anything it is still a good way for me to learn how different people think and feel and need stuff for FPV.

the production time is explained on page 1 (2-3 weeks)
I actually make those systems to customers as the orders come in,
and some people have different demands so I change and fix it for them.

shipment times is postal service, I think about 1 week to the whole world is avarage the last time I benchmarked them.
I am online almost 24/7 ! even using my phone if not home or at work
so YES you can expect I will get back to you.
