The whole dongle thing frustrates me. If I go out of town....instead of being able to bring just my radio and my laptop, I have to also include the 10foot trainer cord and the RF controller. Too much junk jammed into my backpack.

link for Chandler bowl doesn't work/ Realflight Virtual Flight Instruction audio issu


The link that was posted for the Chandler bowl:http://www.speedshutterphoto.com/Ph...andler-bowl.zip, doesn't work. I am trying to put this into the photofield/airport in Realflight G5.5. Any suggestions or does anyone have a digital photo that can be used for this purpose? Also, the Virtual Flight Instruction audio from the recorder has an echo when it plays. When I first click on a choice it starts to play in a single voice then it echoes. Also, is the aircraft from the simulator supposed to be on the field with the aircraft being used in the Virtual Flight Instructor? I have RealFlight G5.5; I already updated my audio drivers, etc. and sent an email to Tech support but no answers yet. Can anyone help?

You're getting the voice echo because your difficulty is not set to advanced. Specifically, your sim speed (I forget what it's called) is not at 100% exactly. As for your other issues, call tech support. You'll have much better luck calling them than emailing them.

real flight G5 w/o original controller


When I read that my controler would work I didn't know at the time that interlink controller was still mandatory.
After reading this extensive thread I understand by now that I made a mistake by buying real flight G5 w/o its original interlink controller. Well I figured it was cheaper as i already have a controller.

My question is: as I don't have interlink and therefore cannot even complete the installation of Real Flight, can I buy a interlink controller separately?
Or is the security so tight that I got to have both the G5 key and Elite controller key from the original package?
Thanks for your feedback.

You should go back to where you bought your software and demand the accompanying Interlink, or a refund. Even as a reale, they are to not to be sold seperately. You were taken advantage of by the seller.

I hate this crap, they have lost me as a customer. First they(great planes) high-jack the hobby industry and now they hold me hostage to a stupid box that feels nothing like my controller. I'm going with one of the others from here on out. Any suggestions?

Several come to mind, but would be considered off-topic. Why don't you plug your own radio into your Interlink controller? The product does come with the ability to do that.

Because I'm in the same boat with safety hawk. I travel.... a lot and don't have room for both. I choose to take my dx7 every where, I buy pnp and bnf planes and helis on location. Dragging an inter link around blows. It's this kind of stuff that makes me wish I knew how to hack..... especially after spending $400+ on g4, the 5.5 upgrade and 3 expansion packs. I've put a bunch of money into GP's pocket for software, and I think it's stupid that I can't use it in a more convenient manor.

I've purchased, G2, G3, G4, G5, every AddOn (5) and every Expansion Pack (8). That's way more than your $400+. I also use the Interlink with my copy of RealFlight. I don't use my real radio for RF. The Interlink is similar enough for me. 2 sticks? Check. Assortment of buttons and knobs? Check. Remind me not to let you drive my car if you can't handle small differences in controls.

I said it before, it's a PIA to drag two TX's onto a plane in carry on. No need to belittle me. My frustration was at GP not you, I'm irritated at the inflexibility of the link issue, and you managed to take it personally, just because something is perfect in your little world does not mean it automatically applies to the rest of us. RF has been hacked and shared all over the place, I paid for mine, I just think it's silly to make a big deal about the interlink when the cyber thieves out there have already ripped them off. Funny, I would pay another $30 for an interlink serialized cord that trips the software for my TX. I like the program that much.

Your first complaint about the "stupid box" as you call it. That is what I was addressing. Okay, time for more of your name calling, I'll pass on that. Not my style.

Thanks for your feedback.
Indeed RealFlight customer support told me I couldn't. However the seller assures me it is a make believe from the company and that he would send me the controller key#. All I need is to get an interlink controller.
2 questions:
- would you agree with this? I mean have you tested his assumption?
- I don't have interlink but a basic 2.4 GHz, 4ch controller named "Blitz RC Works". It works great freeware FMS 2.0. Could I use it instead of an interlink controller once I have the original controller code# ?
In hope I didn't waste my money in vain.
Thanks all.

It will not start without the Interlink plugged in. Furthermore, you have to validate your Interlink by hitting the reset button once you launch RF. Kinda silly really.
