    That will never work.

    The mono output from the TX is a PPM signal it has to be converted to USB. Adapters do exist but I am not sure which ones work for Walkera for any/all Flight simulators.

    Walkera have a PPM to USB with drivers but it only supports Updating Firmware and saving and loading Model configs.

    We have the Software for that on the site here.. But you have to buy the Hardware.
    UP02 Tool For Devo 7 And Other FC / OSD updates

    The flight simulators normally have a dongle that is compatible with their software with driver support.

    As an example here is one that supports Phoenix 5.0

    22 In 1 2.4G Wireless Flight Simulator For Phoenix 5.0 Compatible JR/ FUTABA/ FS/ KDS/ Walkera RC Parts from Toys Hobbies and Robot on banggood.com

    You will need to search for one for the simulator you want to use.

    Personally I use a FrSky Taranis and a standard USB cable and use the flight sims NeXt for 3D Heli and Drone and RealFlight 9 for fixed wing.

    im gonna use free rider. do u have any toughts about that simulator?

    so it still wont be 100% sure even if i buy a usb external sound card adaptor?? i saw 1 guy at steam that he connected his devo 7 to his laptop using a monocable and a external sound adaptor so i hope it will.

    so i have to buy the up02 rather than the one above to be sure right? i just need to buy that hardware and install the drivers??

    sorry for asking too much i just want to use flight simulator

    UP02 does not support Simulators. Its for Devo 7 FW and model config only.

    Don't believe everything you see on the net.

    It will work with Devo 7. But the question is "will your Simulator recognise the USB driver" I cannot guarantee it will, but most likely, it should work.
