FlySky/ Turnigy -i6 AFHDS 6CH Transmitter via USB Dongle Setup:
**Note: the FlySky and Turnigy both operate the same way.
*** Please ensure that your computer is fully up to date with the latest drivers including controller drivers.
We’ll be using a USB dongle to connect to the computer. Here is a link to some.
**Keep in mind that there are many different USB dongles available on the market for connecting RC controllers to the computer. We do not guarantee the cable to work. however we have found cables like this to work in the past. Please be sure that you have a USB dongle that is compatible for your specific controller.
We have found that the USB Dongle that has a switch on the side works the best and putting this switch in the #2 position works best.
*** Some dongles or cables might require you to skip the reset and restart switch step to work correctly. Use R and Alt-R instead.
