TXPPM runs without problem: (other than being a resource hog, and having low resolution)

EDIT: I then renamed the controller.xlm files to something useless, and restarted. I then got a prompt to re-cal the controller and I could select an airport and a heli.

BTW, the resolution of the Funfly dongle is 1:188, i.e. full scale is 16 bits (2^16), smallest step is ~334 counts, as reported by jstest-gtk.
Resolution with TXPPM is about the same, but has a very annoying ±166 count random jitter, on all channels, making hovering very challenging. This jitter makes for ±0.1° change in blade angle, pretty much as much as used for hovering.
