I am an idiot - need help!

Postby h00b » Mon May 20, 2024 8:14

So, I did a booboo and I bought the wrong things. I am very happy to buy more things, to fix my setup, but I am not sure what to buy.
for context I Decided to bite the bullet and buy some flight panels, for more clicky button goodness (I was going to put them through my Gladiator EVO with an omni throttle). so I bought

1x SEM
1x FSM-GA
1x mounting bracket for the UCM mounts.

And I thought I would mount the SEM module to the gladiator, and the FSM-GA through it.

only after did I realise that I cant mount the SEM to the left of the evo thanks to the omni throttle. Utter screw up - my fault entirely. Clearly says it on the SEM page, I just didnt read it.

So now I want to fix this and mount the SEM and FSM-GA to a multi function holder. But Im leery of buying the wrong thing again.

I think what I need, is an MFH and a GNX USB Controller (HID-Main) but I just watched the videos, and from what I can tell I will also require a JST -> USB cable. and I ve been through the store pages, and not only can I not find this cable, the GNX usb controller doesnt seem to come with it either.

pls halp!

So, if you want to run the SEM and FSM as an independent unit you'll need the following:
- SEM, FSM-GA, MFH (you already got these);
- JST to USB C cable;
- GNX HID Controller.

You'll install the GNX HID Controller into the SEM, connect the SEM to the FSM by the JST to USB C cable (JST to SEM, USB C to FSM) and plug the SEM to USB with the included USB power cable.

MFH is really for desktop use. Not sure it would mesh well with a UCM-based setup.

That's right, that unit will have to stay on the desk.

Show us a pic with your setup, OP, so we can see if you can integrate the 2 modules into the UCM; for example, if you have 2 UCMs you can get a module on each, so you won't need the MFH anymore.
