What is FMS ?
FMS (Flying-Model-Simulator) is a freeware flight simulator for model aeroplanes. For more information go to the FMS home page.
What the interface box does ?
This interface box converts the PPM-signal from J.R radios buddy box output into a data packet that is then sent to the PC via a serial interface (RS232). FMS interoperates the data packed to determine the amount and direction the joy sticks on the radio control unit have moved . This method can run on Win 2K/XP systems without any special drivers.
