    The good the bad and the ugly (DX7 and G3)

    So I'm starting to get braver with my trex. Doing flips and barrels. Was doing some fast circles and my gyro was being all weird, but I think I figured that out to a bad dual rate when in stunt mode. Pilot error earned my first crash, looked down at my remote to adjust a setting, looked back up, lost perspective, SMASH. Hit the ground hard, glad I configured my throttle hold yesterday.

    Broken

    That stupid plastic tail slider linkage (that part sucks I need an upgraded tail piece)
    tailboom from blade strike
    spindle
    main gear
    main shaft

    Not that bad...but first crash makes me sad. LHS doesn't open till tuesday so I had some time to kill. Well I've been flying my G3 with a playstation controller and it worked, but it wasn't as realistic as it could be. So I figured I'd take my DX7 and see if I could get it to work. Downloaded PPJOY and SmartPropoPlus (and RCaudio for visualization). Plugged my earphone to earphone cable into my mic port and my DSC port and got started.

    PPJOY settings

    axis1 = rudder
    axis2 = throttle
    axis3 = Y axis
    axis4 = X axis

    SmartPropoPlus

    PPM (generic) auto detect
    microphone
    PPJoy extension
    (no esky ccpm mixing filter)

    G3 dongle emulator

    X1 axis = 2
    Y1 axis = 24
    X2 axis = 18
    Y2 axis = 0

    Took me a while to decipher those settings to get my raw channels to work in G3. After the raw channels work however its just a matter of setting your channel mapping and calibrating. Now my DX7 works perfectly with G3 with no extra cords or BS (and to think I almost bought the darn thing).

    So the bad news is I gotta wait for parts for my heli. The good news is that I can CONFIRM DX7's working with G3, and the ugly...well lets just say my stripped rex aint a thing of beauty right now.

    ---{additional notes}---
    A bunch of you are probably going to ***** about me stealing G3, save your breath I don't care and I'm not going to argue with you.

    RE: The good the bad and the ugly (DX7 and G3)

    I've got the sim already, but being able to use the remote that I fly with would REALLY make it realistic, that'd be cool. Thanks for your hard work and posting the results. Much appreciated!
    ..landing is optional.

    I have a DX5e and the channel in the EMU are:

    X1= 24
    Y1= 28
    X2= 0
    Y2= 20

    I hope it helps.
