Default Airtronics trainer box ???

We have a student that has an Airtronics Quazar radio and an Infinity 660. We have been trying to hook these up using the Infinity as a trainer box. We have had no luck at all. Is it mandatory to use the Airtronics trainer cord? We were using a Futaba trainer cord, we had a newer Airtronics cord and it wouldn't fit. Can anyone give me any info on this. There is very little info in the instruction book. Eddie Fulmer

Hi Eddy,

It was not veru prudent of you to try a Futaba-buddy-lead on another brand. Every brand has his own pin-layout, even with some same connectors (except Futaba=Hitec, or nearly). You could have fried some electronics.

Unfortunately, I cannot help you much, having nearly no information on the mentioned transmitters. Just an extract of my website (from chapter 3) :
quote
It seems that the Sanwa/Airtronics Infinity, Quasar and Stylus are fitted with other connectors and that for buddy box purpose these transmitters are only compatible with an identical transmitter (thus Infinity to Infinity, Stylus to Stylus or Quasar, Quasar to Quasar). No problem between the RD8000, RD6000, VG400, VG600, Radiant and Vanguard PPM.

Check my website how to connect 2 transmitters for buddy-box purpose. Good luck. Keep me informed if you ever succeed, in order to publish your findings.
Thanks,
Olivier

If it's the 5 pin in a semi-circular shape, they are interchangeable with the readily available (radio shack) MIDI cable used for electronic music/PC interface. These are also about half the price of a "buddy cord" from a hobby manufacturer.
