Most USB interfaces emulate a "windows joystick", which is fine for FMS, Clearview and a few others. Phoenix, XTR, G3 and AFPD all used their own protocol to communicate between the interface and the software. Its this protocol that forms the main part of the copy protection, preventing people simply copying the Cd and using off the shelf "windows joystick" interfaces.
As for the Blade CX2 transmitter, you should be able to use the JR 3.5mm socket as Burnside states, which will connect to the Phoenix interface.
