Correct, it came with my E-Flite Draco and I plan to upgrade to the full 9.5, but wanted to make sure I don't spend $70 to find out I'm missing important settings. I just wanted to find out if that's normal or if I'm having a technical issue. Seems odd to leave stuff like that out regardless of it being a stripped version.
Yes, I agree... but, can't answer completely, because I do not have access to the trainer version; although, I have heard others attest to the fact that it is a seriously stripped down version (meant for training, investigating).
And I'll be using my NX8/Jeti DS-12 for the sims, unless there's something compelling about the interlinkDX? I still have my old interlink from 7.5 as well.
The thing that is compelling about the InterlinkDX is that all sim channels work out of the box, including 'reset' and select wheel... not only all channels work but the controller may be used as a mouse for selecting airplanes, airfields, etc. Its really handy.
On the other hand, your NX8 will be just fine for most planes and helis, and the button 'I' can be used for 'reset'; although, you can't use the scroll wheel to select aircraft|airfields. I use my NX10 almost exclusively with Rf9.5 (updated) and have had no issues... with the exception that I found the mag usb cable too short. I'm using a 3' foot usb extension cable with mine.
