Default USB cable for Radio?

I'm trying to find a USB cable to connect my Futaba T6XH radio to my computer. I've been looking around and I can find a couple for $50. Is there any place that sells them cheaper? Thanks in advance!

I can't find anywhere that the 6XHS uses a USB cable. I know my 6XAS doesn't. As a matter of fact I can't find any Futaba transmitter that will download to a PC. Unless you are talking about a Real Flight gaming interface?

Hello Rodrigo,
Welcome to RCU.

Is the cable for a simulator? If so I'd look to the simulator's manufacture. They will have one.

If not Horizon Hobby is the distributor.

In a brief look at the manual I find no mention there is a cable to a PC used or available.

I've also been looking around, found what is probably the same thing you found at milehighwings.com. $50 seems a bit steep for a usb cable to me. But it's starting to look like there's not too may choices since not many manufacturers seem to make them. And I don't want the gameport cable since it won't power the transmitter, and I don't really want to wear out my batteries using it on the simulator.

If anyone knows of a more reasonable source, let's hear it.

For any of the others of us who are not mind readers, it is a game port cable.
