How to make a buddy box cable out of S-video cable

I would like to make a buddy box cable for my two TGY-I6 radios since the ones sold by Hobby King have been unavailable for a while. I have a couple of family members who would like to learn to fly without crashing my Phoenix 2000. The ones sold through Hobby King are inexpensive, but there is no eta on being back in stock. The link I saw did not have enough detail for someone with limited experience.

    Using an S video cable:

    Pin 2 slave to pin 1 master. 
    Pin 1 slave to pin 2 master.
    Pins 3 & 4 stay the same.
    Ground wire soldered to the cable from outer ring to outer ring.

    Or google for: FlySky fs-i6 trainer cable

    They are about £3 odd
