Real Flight Deluxe and Futaba 8UHPs HELP!!! Did I ask for HELP? Because I need HELP!!!

Sorry about the subject line, but I'm desperate.

I just got my Real Flight Deluxe, went through the setups. Followed
instructions and Patched it with the latest version from the web. My
Futaba 8 UHP is not recognized in any shape or form. DEAD STICK! ACK

Oh and I get the "Not connected" error in control panel/game
controller section. Oh and it is connected, Nope no bent pins either.


Anyone else have similar difficulties? If so how did you resolve it?

Program appears to work normally otherwise. If I could only FLY!!!!

Personally I think I got a bad cable or I just don't know how to set
the radio up.

I did try the Futaba instructions for being a student as well, PPM
mode, Remove module. Heck I even tried it with the TX off. I've tried
everything I can think of.

Frustrated,

Ken Bryant

  Make sure you enter the interface serial number properly. I couldn't
find an easy way to do this after the fact. Try fully uninstalling the
software, and reinstalling making sure you use both serial numbers (CD
and transmitter interface) and that they are correct.

Yep, You nailed it. It was the interface serial number. I missed
putting it in the original install. I honestly thought that was in
case I had the RF controller. All is good now!

Thanks
