    What now?

    I opened AF 5.5, hooked up my Tx and am having no response. The 5.5 loads just fine. Controller set-up is non-responsive. If I re-boot with controller connected, I get a message stating "your R/C is not connected".

    Please help with suggestions.

    thanks.

    RE: What now?

    Ford, what type of controller are you using? Please post a photo of your cable connections from the computer to the radio

    RE: What now?

    Mike. I'm using a Spektrum DX7 and am connected the way you recommended elsewhere in this thread. This problem of "no action from the controller" just happened. I've been using the sim for a couple of weeks with no problems. Can't imagine what happened?

    thanks,

    RE: What now?

    Mike. I tried to re-load the photo of the connection hook-up you sent me previously and am told it's too large. Not sure I understand why because it's only 1" x 1.5" file. Anyway, I am hooked up correctly per your previous instructions. I have checked all connections to the computer.

    RE: What now?

    Is it exactly like this? With the power switch of the DX7 off, does the power turn on automatically when you plug in the adapter cable?

    Ford, it looks like your usb interface cable has gone bad. Please contact Mr Frank Heinrich of Ikarus USA on the replacement cable (239) 540 0067. You may refer to this thread

    RE: What now?

    I contacted Frank and he requested that I send the entire connection cable back to him in Florida for repair. So that's what I've done. Hate to lose the chance to use the sim, but he said he'd turn it around quickly.
