This thing is awesome and I wish I'd had one for years.
I think I would be way further along.

Just in an hour,I have started backwards inverted and inverted tail down funnels.

I put the sim stick and Orange RX FASST receiver inside the computer case so there is no visible evidence of a sim in the room.

Just turn on my 8FG and start flying that heli on my big screen.

I literally never use the word literally right.

My question is why are you flying better with the sim stick? I have one and didn't see any difference in my flying.
I do like it because you are not strapped to the computer.

Not flying better because of the sim stick.

I'm flying better because of the sim.

Today is my first time on the sim in over a year and I'm too scared to try anything with my 700.

Now I have my sim back and also have a new micro heli ordered.

I have a Futaba radio and a Spektrum Phoenix dongle from years ago.
Luckily,sim stick makes no difference what brand radio you have.

Sim Stick is not a HK product.
It comes from Readyheli or A Main.

HK does sell a sort of clone of it though.

Sounds cool.
I do get tired of being wired to my PC. Is it SIM specific or will it work also with Real Flight? What would I need if not?

So, are you saying you can wi-fi this from your computer to your tv and have acceptable quality?

The "wifi" is between your Tx and your PC.

OK, guys I gotta fess up. I am electrically challenged. How does this plug into the RX and to the computer. It appears to have a USB plug, but are you actually using a receiver with it to get the signal from the TX? With it all bundled inside the computer case, how is the TX/RX reception" Looks cool (in theory.

Also, are there any instructions?

Look at your "normal" simulator cable, it's a USB cable right? This is the same thing, except it takes input from a receiver. Now instead of plugging into your trainer port, you just bind with the receiver. That's all that's going on.

In the simplest terms, the Sim Stick makes a receiver look like the trainer port on your transmitter.

Yes,you have to use a receiver. Receiver is not included.

With it bundled inside the computer,it works from anywhere in the house...Even from a little ways outside the house.

Absolutely no issues in the same room

This is an excellent platform for cheap Hobby King receivers.

That's what I was thinking...I certainly wouldn't put one on anything I fly.

Is there a limit on the length of an HDMI cable?
I don't have a TV in the computer room and my laptop doesn't have an HDMI port.

I would like to have a bigger screen to use the sim with.

OK, I found some HDMI cables that I think would be long enough on Amazon.
I always heard that there is no advantage to buying high dollar HDMI cables because the average ones work just as well...does anyone know if this would still apply to a 50' cable?
