Real flight 7.5 /w elite controller, how to link my new futaba 18sz?

Hi. I had bought the RF 7.5 sim with the included elite controller before getting my own rx transmitter which is the futaba 18sz (I'm returning to the hobby after some years away!)

I'm wanting to fly iMac and 3D large scale models and find myself wanting to add exponentials, curves and varied rates/mixes. I suspect these can be done within the RF software if I delve deep enough but I think I'd be better off using the 18sz tx to do this to use all its magic and get used to the tx.

How then can I connect my futaba to the pc or elite controller for use with rf 7.5?

(the cables are included to link the elite controller to my 18sz. The futaba controller appears in the select controller settings, but movement of any 18sz sticks or switches doesn't show up in sim)

Update: I'm not sure how but I got it to work finally by restarting everything two or three times. I guess I need to hunt for a wireless connection solution now.
