Hi all,

many thanks

Probably depends on what buddy box connector it has

Simulators use the inputs from your control stick gimbals and don't much care about the make.

As Bert says, look on the back of the Sanwa for the lead connection

This governs your choice of lead and sim.

Take a photo of the back of the sanwa with your phone landscape and put it on here

Have a look here Roger

USB Interface for TX

The Sanwa Vanguard is mentioned there. Once you have this type of connector there are a number of free simulators available - Phoenix is currently out of licence and is bundled with some of these USB interfaces, it's just a matter of making sure that you get the correct cable.

I had a similar problem trying to use an old Futaba tx with the larger 6 pin din plug. I did try to solder a new one on but the pegs were far too small for DIY use. I managed to have a lead made specifically for £15 by a firm on Ebay. They are listed as York-av 24 Auster Road Clifton Moor York YO30 4XA.

6 pin din to mono jackplug. Din - Signal (red) to pin 2; connect pin 4 to pin 5. Black to earth on both. It has worked well.

More info on a post here 9/4/2020 'Simulator needed'

Rogeo, the answer to your search is here **LINK**

If you look at what's included, there is a dongle (switchable for several different flight sims), a lead with a male mini phono jack at each end, one end plugs into the dongle, the other into either the transmitter, if applicable, or into an adaptor.

With this set there are three adaptors, a square one for Futaba type t/xs, a mini DIN and, the one I think you need, a standard DIN plug.

Also there are a couple of CDs, which will I expect have several flight sims on them, all for the princly sum of £10.43 delivered!

I have looked on Ebay and similar sites for this item dispatched from the UK. Whilst similar RC flight sims are available, they crucially do NOT included the DIN plug you need.

If you haven't already got an RC flight simulator programme, there was a discussion on this site recently about the Pheonix simulator (recommended) which is now available for free download.

Hope that helps, GDB

PS I have exactly the set shown and can take measurements etc. if required.

Hi caveman,

thank you very much for your reply.

i will take a look at the link, and buy it for that money.

i don’t have any software, so if it comes with a sim great.

will these still run on windows 10?

cheers

Rogeo, forget the software on the CDs (unless you want to try the various offerings), go here instead and download the latest Phoenix simulator which certainly runs very well on Windows 10.

Phoenix

There are also loads of flying site and models to download. You only need Banggood for the dongle and cables.

Cheers GDB

hi all

I have ordered the cable, so its going to take a while to arrive, but I have time.

the phoenix simulator is downloaded and updated to V6, so fingers crossed it will all work.

thanks again for the help.

Cheers

So the cable arrived, it was the wrong type. Its a much smaller one. I have found a cable on ebay, so im waiting for more pictures from the seller to confirm its correct before i buy it.

img_1567.jpgimg_1569.jpgimg_1568.jpgimg_1570.jpgIm really hoping it will be correct, otherwise i have no idea what i can do.

Thanks for your help.

The connector on the back of your Sanwa connector looks identical to the one on my old Futaba FF6 (which I use with Phoenix). That might help you find a suitable cable

Hi Rogeo, this is, I think, the correct one, just a tad over 1/2" diameter.

If it is then let me know. I have no need of this adaptor and if you haven't already sorted one I can post it to you.

Cheers GDB

That's the same size as the one that fits my old FF6.

Hi caveman,

Im so sorry, I have only seen this. I have just realised that the kit i received should have had the larger version aswell, but it was missing. I have just emailed them now. Send me a pm, Ill check the diameter in mm on mine again tm.

I really appreciate the help, I am honestly really really overwhelmed with the support and time that everyone takes to help those in need.. I just hope someday when i get up to speed i can help in return someday....maybe on 35mhz gear!!!

Cheers
