G'day lads.

Any one know where I can purchase Phoenix Accessories locally here in the US.
I want to purchase a couple round and square Futaba leads.

I tried direct form the Phoenix website but for some reason they don't like my CC.

Thanks.

Try clearing your cookies then trying again, alternatively somewhere like buzzflyer or heliguy?

nofear,
I too had trouble with my CC when purchasing from their website, but on third try everything was good. I don't think there is any place in the US that has any stock left, but if so, you'll hear about it here on RR. I also bought the two adapters you are going to purchase, and I would only get the futaba round adapter from Phoenix and get the 9C realflight replacement adapter elsewhere because the Phoenix 9C adapters are lacking in quality and mine only lasted 4 flying sessions before it quit working. With a slight mod to the realflight adapter you can have it work exactly as the Phoenix 9C adapter does.
Great choice and their customer support is excellent, something that has been missing with the other sim manufacturers.

Hope you can get it and see why it's getting so many positive comments.

Dave

Is it the USB->controller lump that has issues? Or just the pinout adapter?

I've got a JR radio and a GreatPlanes G2 controller. If there is a way to use the G2 controller, can you share? Otherwise I'll keep using the JR radio.

It's the short adapter that connects to the Phoenix USB cable. The wires of the adapter are very small in diameter and aren't very tolerant to very much flexing before they break. I don't think there's anyway to use a RF controller with Phoenix.
