T8SG Plus with a flight simulator was created by dnlpr
Hello,
I can not use my T8SG Plus with a flight simulator, be it Multifly, Phoenix RC or Real flight, the radio is not recognized, I think it is necessary to configure the transmitter but I do not know how . Does anyone know how to do it?
Thank you

I tried the PPM protocol but it did not work, I tried with USB, Phoenix and RealFlight dongle, it does not work either. My PC works with Windows 10. I do not understand.

I prefere to not use a cable when using sims, it just gets in the way and are usually to short for comfort with my computor setup.
The much easier way that I prefere is using a USB reciever dongle: OrangeRx USB RX dongle

Just connect it to USB, make a model in the T8SG and connect it thru normal protocol RX binding (dsmx) and it just works. Shows up in windows as "USB dsmX HID" game controller. Its a bonus that the USB dongle fits nicely in my T8SG v2 plus battery compartment infront of the battery so it wont get lost.

You can make one if you have a rx with cPPM youre not using and a USB dongle mic in/soundcard. The RX get its power from the USB jack and cPPM output connected to mic in. Then use software to interpet the connection (vJoy / SmartPropoPlus Setup). But it can be buggy.

I'm going to buy the Orange dongle, but will it work with RealFlight or Phoenix RC? Thank you. Daniel

My flight sims bundle came with a usb adaptor with a cord. I soldered in a servo lead and attach a dsm2 PPM receiver to eliminate the cord. I can still unplug the Rx and use a cord with Taranis.

Ok, I give up. Not working with Real Flight.7. The dongle is recognized but the T8SG plus is not when going into the setup. I have DSMX selected and go the binding and get the green light to come up. Does one have to set an ID in there? Is there a PPM In setting other than none.
I have the power output set at 30mw. Any help appreciated.

Simply when I get to the calibration screen on Real Flight 7 none of the control movements do anything. Kurt

Ok, stupidhead here again. I see that one has to hold the side button in on the dongle while inserting it into the USB port.
Get that bright LED lit. Got through the setup process except I can't set the switches on the T8SGPlus. This is with Aerofly RC 7. Well at least I got it bonded. I copied an XK k110 ini file in and was able to fly a bit. Kurt

I just assign channels to switches as normal and have 7 working channels, ch5-7 on 3 position switches. You can go in to windows USB game controllers and check how many it receives and that its signaled to the computor correctly. So your problem might be something with the sim, I havnt tried Aerofly RC so I cant help you there.

I found that the frame rate is degraded with that "orange" dongle. Close but no cigar. I had to get Aerofly as no other commercial
simulator was available. With Tower going bankrupt, the RealFlight simulator was out of stock at every source I tried so went with Aerofly with the overseas source. It looks good. I did get the "Ultimate" version and simply use the clone tranny that was supplied. I was hoping I could get the "Plus" to work with it but it is less than desirable with this born again beginner.
