    Lightbulb Connecting Head Tracker to Devo 8s?? Need help.

    Hi!
    I have been trying to find an answer to a simple question
    Can I use FatShark Head Tracker with Walkera Devo 8s?

    This remote is awesome for what it gives, and I will not go to any other after that one or a higher model =)

    It does have a trainer port, and it is FULLY programmable, but it uses mono 3.5mm (headphones jack)... As far as I have seen, Turnigy's connector is the closest, but it is stereo...

    Walkera's Devo series are getting more and more users with Devo 8s and Devo 10,
    and so many of us would appreciate greatly, if some one would help getting those to work together...

    I guess, the question right now is: "Is it possible to make connection through mono 3.5mm jack trainer port?"

    PS: Walkera also has a usb cable for simulators, with possibility to drive every single channel, so may be it is possible to use it? (just a thought)
    Any ideas???

    From one another thread I understood that HT only need signal and ground cable connected, which makes it possible to connect to mono trainer port of Devo 8s, and no short circuit danger! ^__^

    The think I want to clarify, on HT side - out side ring in ground and pin 4 (bottom right) is signal?
