    Very true. Thanks for pointing that out .

    According to Horizon Hobby, it does have wireless trainer features. they guy with horizon said it is not documented past the fact the button is labeled trainer.

    I might try to get my hands on one to try it out
    Hangar: FT Delta, Ft Mini Scout, FT Tiny Trainer, FT VersaCopter
    Being Built: Queing.....
    On Deck: FT Duster, FT Guinea Pig, FT Simple Storch
    Crashed: FT Flyer, Nano QX,

    Always having a good time.

    Arrow Build your own TX/RX Audio Programming Cable DXe/AS3X

    I tried building my own cable but when I plugged it into my phone, the screen frizzed out then went black! I freaked out and tried resetting my iPhone. Fortunately it came back up. I immediately ordered the cable and when it arrived I noticed there is a small PCBoard inline so it is there to protect the phone. Good luck.

    Please!! I really want to try out some AS3X adjustments and stuff.. If you could post a pinout once you get one, that would be fantastic. Honestly its ridiculous that spektrum charges $13 for a $5 cable… It's surely expensive to get aluminum milled, but they didn't need to do that…

    That sucks. I guess we aren't supposed to power the RX or let power from the RX into the device… :P
    I might buy one and see if I can't reverse engineer the PCB or something. If there's a MC with some software, forget it.. But if not then I'd love to try and make some custom PCBs.

    Ask me anything! Fixing problems is my side-hobby.

    sounds like you are having problems. i avoid spektrum. it has been known to be less reliable than other brands and is just plain more expensive. especially for a large group or kids wanting to get their own gear, something like flysky or frsky can be a much cheaper and better alternative. especially with frsky or anything tat used opentx, there is lots of opportunity for learning experiences because of the open source software. it is really incredible what you can do with it.

    the only reason i see for going with spektrum is to make it easy to bind and fly horizon hobby planes but idk why you would want to do that for stem. for stem purposes you want to build something in which case flysky is the cheapest and very reliable and also you can have modules for spektrum if you must use it.

    just my opinions (and almost everyone in the rc discord server, lol)

    i just think that for the purposes of stem, the cheaper option with more capabilities would be more beneficial then a restrictive, more pricey spektrum way of doing things.
    Major RC's in Flying Condition:FT Flyer (flown once, crashed, repaired), FT Sparrow (unpowered free flight version, flown soooo much, fixed sooo much), FT Simple Soarer (built with electronics, no motor, not flown),
    In Progress:B.A.T. 150% size (some pieces cut out, some not measured out yet), FT Simple Scout (plans taped together), FT Simple Cub (plans printed),
    Retired RC's none yet, although the sparrow is getting close.
    I also have an Axial SCX10 Deadbolt (crawler)
