I have bought myself the F9CHP Tx unit and the CSM v9.x sim in order to learn how to fly helis, but I appear to be having a few problems with them
The sim recognises that I have a Tx connected (I checked using the intest function that shows a bar graph of what each channel is doing - all seems fine) but when I start up the actual sim and set up the Tx as a new controller, the program hangs as I try to calibrate it!
Normally it will just sit there with a black screen and do nothing until I ctrl-alt-del the dos prompt, but once it started to let me set up the tx - asked me to set throttle hold (which I did) and then asked me to tilt the cyclic to the left and release (which I did) and then it hung!
The odd thing is that if I tell the sim I'm using the FF7 - I can fly to my heart's content! Grrr
Anyone else had problems with this sim/tx combination? Or have I missed something blatantly obvious?

Cheers,

I can't help w/ the specific 9C problem
but on the other side of the coin, if the
sim works correctly when you specify
the FF7, then I wouldn't worry too much
about it. It's not like the sim is going to
take advantage of any 9C-ness.

Have you contacted CSM?

True and fair point.
This leads to my next question then, (while using the sim saying the Tx is FF7) moving the throttle hold, and idle up switches appears to do nothing, do I have to set them up/enable them in the Tx computer or in the actual sim?
And yes I have contacted CSM - although only about an hour ago - so they probably haven't even read it yet!

You'll have to program the radio, that's what I remember from the time I used this sim. It's a good sim the only down side is the graphics compared to G2

you'll need to set the radio up just like
you would for a real helicopter, w/
idle-up curves and everything. There are
some parameters you can change via
the sim like the overall pitch travel (as
I recall) and others

Thanks for the help everyone, I just heard back from CSM and they said exactly the same as you guys! Gotta love RR!
Right now I've just gotta finish setting up my Tx, oh and the trivial matter of learning to fly these bloody things!!
