The VControl works great with both RF6.5 and the new RF8.

I am using it right now....

You'll want to get this from Mikado USA

http://shop.mikadousa.com/04928-VSi...ace_p_1458.html

Unfortunately, it seems to be back ordered at the moment.

Perhaps it's available somewhere else...

I got the new RF8 with the new Interlink-X Tx...mainly to have a spare Interlink Tx....

The channel mapping will be different from other TXs....I always use the TX that I use in the field, rather than the Interlink.

Also, with RF8, you can import some cool helis from the knife-edge swap pages. The ones that work with RF7 and RF7.5 will work with RF8.

FWIW

Any way to do it with the standard USB cable.

You can make one yourself if you have a spare old vbar and a vcontrol sat receiver

Unfortunately no. Not just with an old usb cable. You need to wire up a usb and an 1/8” stereo jack wire in addition.

You pretty much need everything shown in that Mikado link above for $110. But there’s nothing special about either of the short cables. I made my own and used a spare old vbar. It all works fine.

if it ain't broke, break it.
