Question Pinout for trainer cable

Hey guys, I'd like to make a serial trainer cable for my E-Flite radio.

I need somebody who already has a trainer cable to test what pin on the serial plug (D-shaped end) goes to which pin on the mini-DIN plug (round plug) using a multitester.

Would somebody do that for me, purty please?

That's frickin' awesome! Thanks for the info, huh? I'll have to dig up some resistors and see if I can make that cable. That's strange, I never would have thought it would connect through the soundcard!

Thanks again! I'll let you know if it works.

Cool, it actually sorta works. I don't think the sound passes through very cleanly (throttle control 'bleeds' a little into swashplate control), but it works enough to make the sim very playable. It's pretty darned realistic, for a freebie! But the controller mapping was wrong on that website, the mapping that worked for me is as follows:

Rudder - 3
Elevator - 1
Aileron - 2
Throttle - 4
Tail - 3
Nick - 2
Roll - 1
Pitch - 4

All of the checkboxes were correct.

Pretty cool, to be able to fly around on a sim with my own CP Pro controller! Thanks for the linky, huh? Huh huh. Huh-huh-huh. Huh huh. (my pathetic Beavis and Butthead imitation). BTW, that site instructs on how to make your own replacement wooden blades out of paint stir sticks... I didn't have any luck with that one, but I imagine somebody with mad woodshop skillz could whip up a set of replacement blades in about a half-hour. My hand-sanding just didn't cut the mustard, my heli oscillated pretty bad with the homemade blades.

Thanks again, huh? Yer awesome!
