Does anyone know where I can get an inexpensive ICS USB Adapter alternative instead of the KO PROPO version. I have the highest respect for the quality and innovation of KO PROPO, but $74.99 seems a bit much for something that probably costs less then 5 bucks to manufacture.:rolleyes:
Any help would be appreciated!

Look around here on the forum.
There is a thread on how to make your own cable.The same guy also sold some here on the forum. But it is serial connection and not USB (you can use a usb to serial adapter)

I have instructions on how to build your own USB ICS adapter. It costs more than building a serial one (<30$ in parts after shipping).

You can see the build instructions here:

It is simple to build if you are comfortable with soldering.
