The first time trying to get my usb TX to work on Next was hell. It took me ages to figure it out, so I understand what you're going through.

I also have the spektrum/orange dongles which works well with my DX9. Just wish it had more channels so I could get the switches working.


Hope this video helps???

it sort of works, but i get weird movement, on all sticks, -100 to +100 is from half stick to full, below half stick then goes through -100 to +100 again, its messed up.

I use clearview, works flawlessly.
phoenix, again flawless
real flight works but has its quirks.

pretty much every rc sim ive tried works except next
I have exactly the same issue. Range -100 to +100% seems to be working only across half stick movement. It is the same on all channels, also switches, pots, etc. Works perfectly in Windows game controller settings and ALL other sims I have (and I have quite a few of them).

Got Next CGM on FB chat and they claim that it is due to 0 to 2 range of Windows game controller old driver output, instead of -1 to +1, which is supposed to be a modern standard. Sounds logical, except claimed range do not fit the symptoms and Windows 10 HID game driver is newest possible (10.0.17134.112).

Anybody having similar problem? possibly solution?

Would love to but Next, but not before it gets sorted.

p.s. I'm using FrSky XSR-Sim dongle, which is probably not that important - looking at previous post (few dongles having the same issue, which would suggest that it maybe Windows driver or how Next is handling the input).

Hi, I'm a long time next user for Heli flying, but now into FPV wings and quads, it mentions FPV view a lot in the manual/version history but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get into FPV view in the sim, does anyone know how to do it?

I think AccuRC took over as the best flight sim for helis.

I downloaded and installed heli-x and could not get anywhere past the calibration step.

I would email their support, or maybe post a request for help on their forum on HeliFreak?

I use Heli-X, AccuRC, and Realflight 7.5... I would rank them in this order when it comes to real-life Physics...

1. AccuRC / Heli-X
2. Realflight 7.5

AccuRC was easier to setup for me than Heli-X... I am still using the Intelink Elite Futaba wired controller that came with Realflight 7.5. I prefer to use this to my transmitters to avoid wear and tear on those as I seem almost every day. Heli-X probably has a very slight advantage on Physics especially with my chosen heli (Oxy 5 MEG) but AccuRC is better on the graphics and the sound department. I use all three but spend much of my time in AccuRC and Heli-X.
