Easyfly3 and DX8

I bought Easyfly3 with USB interface-cable and, I have DX8 radio. When I start the program, the error message shows: The USB Interface-Cable is found but not the radio. The cable came with the package has 2.5mm mono male on one end and 3.5mm stereo on other end. Will this be a problem? should I change to both mono male?

Shot in the dark, but do you have the DX8 switched on? The Spektrum radios need to have the power switch OFF when using them with a sim. They turn on in trainer mode automatically when you plug the trainer cord in. A stereo jack should work fine.

I resolved my problem by:

1. Change the cable with mono connector to DX8.
2. Use the Interface Adapter came with the package (I tried it before bought the cable, but didn't work).

Thanks for the response.

Easyfly3 with dx8

Had problem with software finding radio. Finally ended up with Spektrum Trainer cable - 2 pole 3.5mm jack in radio and other end with reducer to 2.5mm 3 pole jack plugged into adapter using 3 core servo type connector. Works OK
