Default Trainer Cable Pinout

The trainer cable on Futaba radios is a 6 pin DIN connector.
I would like to use this port to connect a custom built joystick interface to the radio transmitter. However, I cannot find any literature defining the connector pins. Does anyone have those definitions? Robert K

Here's a very thorough "Trainer cord" site: http://users.belgacom.net/TX2TX/

On the standard 6-pin DIN plug you just need Pin2 (encoder out) and ground (outer screen).

OOPS - I mis-read the initial post and posted the wrong image.



Contact pin configuration viewed on female plug mating face :
1 = +V batteries (SWITCHED)
Shield = GROUND
2 = OUT
3 = IN
4 = +V (for some transmitters only). Connecting pin 4 and 5 to each other on some transmitters will stop the HF-transmission
