Re: How do I get my R/C controller to work in Vista?
Great planes web site may be of some help, or you might contact them.
There are multiple versions of the real flight hardware that exist. I could
not identify the exact version you have. The web site lists
Game port, parallel, and USB versions.
My controller/adapter is a really old Lew Engineering USB unit. (2001)
