Airplane: BIX 3 Airplane RC controller: HK-T6A V2
The aileron was inverted on the model airplane. To fix this I had to install the controller software. I decided I wanted to try it using wine.
The stock Mint 7.3 wine version 1.6.2 did not work because of the com port.
So I installed wine v1.8:
add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa apt-get update apt-get install wine1.8 apt-get install winetricks
winetricks mfc42 wget http://www.fingertechrobotics.com/prodimages/radios/T6install.zip wine T6install.zip cd ~/.wine/dosdevices ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 com1
There is no need to install a driver when using wine. just plug in the cable and the remote controller to your PC and start the config program. Use dmesg to check if ttyUSB0 is really the serial device.
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/t6config/T6config.exe
If everything is ok, the config program should work. Choose a Mode 2 remote or the channels won't match. Move the sticks and you should see the bars change.
