    How do you connect the FFusb to a computer? I've got the program cable going from this little device to the roll Radian. (I only have a 2 axis). I don't have a cable to go from the FFusb to the computer. Am I missing a cable?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Hi Jim: I think you need to buy a USB Type A Male to USB 2.0 Micro B Male connectors cable.

    Amazon has several suppliers, search for:
    usb type a male to micro 8-pin male cable

    Hope that helps.

    I was frantically searching my USB cable tub too -- not quite sure why FF moved away from the USB Type B that the MK USB adapter uses.

    Tabb: for us Radian betazoids, can we still use the beta MKUSB adapter programming thingy?

    Andy.

    Hi Jim, You need a Micro USB cable. We did not include one with the Radians as we thought everyone already had that cable (maybe wrongly so!)

    Hope that helps

    We moved to Micro USB for size constraints and also because the micro plug is a better plug and holds up better long term.

    Andy yes you can still use the MKUSB
