I would like to share with all of you that I bought and tested successfully a really cheap (price) USB to serial cable from CableCreation using genuine FTDI FT232R chipset for FlexRadio.

Any cables that use the FTDI USB to serial parts are supported. FlexRadio carries them in stock if you prefer not to hunt, but we use off the shelf cables for your convenience.

Would I need to buy anything else to hook up my Steppir that has the original controller to my 6400? How about my KPA-500?
