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

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.

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.
