Chris if it was last year (NEW) it will be the V2. You can tell the V2 has a fat bit on the Receivers Antenna (Tail). The V1 has a little satellite receiver. So this one will not bind with you V2 Transmitter. The Bixler 1.1 (if bought from HK) only came with a V2.
So you wish to know how to bind. We first I need to know what TX you have!!!.. Also this will mostly bind with the Ver ! or Ver a. There is a lot of video around on how to bind. Also you tubes is good!
Fred_b good question?? But which 6X. I only works with Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch V1. So be careful. It does not work with it newer model, Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx & Rx V2 (SKU: HK-T6A-M2 or M1). It must be a V1 transmitter.
Is this receiver kompatible with the old FlySky TH9X Transmitter with 2.4GHz TM001 Modul? I have some other old receivers with satellite (HK-TR8A) I hope the HK-TR6A is kompatible with the old TM001 modul.
Well I this only works with V1 Transmitters. So the receiver that can with your Bixler does it have a satellite receiver (like the one in the picture or was is just the one box with the fat part on its tale. So the Fat Tale is a V2 receiver.
Thanks Carl. This was for another plane I bought but wanted my bixler transmitter to work with it. The HKT6Av2 was what I ended up getting and works fine. Might need to step up to a new transmitter if I keep collecting planes like this.
Converted my JR X2610 by installing the tx board from a Storm 6ch v1 transmitter works like a charm, just ordered two more receivers. Able to fly more than 300m with no problems compared to the previous 35Mhz setup.
Anyone else had issues with these? I just got 2 new ones. One rx doesn't bind, one is fine. One satellite binds, then doesn't handshake after binding. The second satellite binds and works, but the signal is jumpy. My older rb's are fine. I'll have to RMA.
You can see by the number of replies that this is very subjective. The easy answer is the range is out of visual sight, but that doesn't help much. Depends on how you position tx antenna (upright best), tx power output, corresponding position of rx antennas, height above ground, line of sight, background electronic noise level, air quality (moisture), etc etc. You should get at least 2 km but you will need to carry out your own tests. All part of the fun.
Hey I Have This Receiver And Broke the antenna On the smaller package is there any way to substitute for such a loss of antenna by using a normal wire of precisely the same length...plz help I am really in a fix if I have to just discard my newly acquired rx...
JuanchoRC No it has to be a Ver 2 Transmitter to work with this ver 2 receiver. I am sure Flysky 9CH module FS-TM001 Is a version ONE. I hope this helps. By the was there is a Ver 2 FlySky that works with it. So is it a ver 1 or Ver 2. Hobby King has receivers that are compatible with v2 ""PRODUCT ID: HK-T6A-V2 Hobby King 2.4Ghz Receiver 6Ch V2""" and V1 PRODUCT ID: HK-T6A Hobby King 2.4Ghz Receiver 6Ch V1
The receiver shown is version one V1 and is only compatible with transmitters not sold by Hobbyking for at least one year. I guess the demand is still there because plenty of transmitters were sold then and these are cheap and reliable.
Jam123 I concur. You would this the V2 transmitter would be backward compatible but sadly NO. Mid you HobbyKing E B A Y does sell a VI Rc set. Have a look. Also there are many V1 Rc set out there and it is good HK still sell this receiver because no one else does. THANKS
The transmitter must be bound with this receiver and must be switched on. The power plug must be the right way round (no harm will be done if wrong, just won't work). If using the ESC to power the receiver ensure it is not an opto ESC (without battery eliminator circuit) in which case retest using a receiver battery.
Disclaimer, I haven't done this for ages and guess who didn't print out instructions when they were there. With the writing the correct way up the plug housing will be on the right. The furthest row of pins is neagative (black or brown depending on Futaba or JR style servos) middle row is power (red) and left row is signal (white or yellow). Top socket is battery, with same orientation, black/brown wire to the right. When binding, fit bind plug to batt socket (any way round) and connect esc servo lead to socket 1 if JR or socket 3 if Futaba to enable throttle control and power to receiver from esc. For test bench binding I use a 4.8 volt rx pack plugged in as above instead of esc as I use a lot of opto contollers which do not provide power down the esc rx connector. Connect a servo to a channel for binding confirmation. Switch on transmitter whilst pressing the bind button and release. Immediately connect battery to rx. Red light should change from flashing to solid, if not try again. When led solid, remove bind plug!(note battery power can be applied to any servo socket but bind plug will only work in battery socket). Note that this rx will only work with a version one transmitter or module.
I have the transmitter on the picture from the bixler, here: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__16542__Ho bbyking_Bixler_EPO_1400mm_RTF_Mode_2_Throttle_Left_R adio_.html will it work with this transmitter?
Hello, can someone tell me if this receiver will work for a very light park flyer using a 3.7 volt lipo? I am trying to find an inexpensive radio combo that will do proportional throttle for a 7mm motor and an on off for a tail motor, doesnt have to be proportional. And do you need an esc for the motor control, and if so, what kind would be light enough and work with this rx? I know thats a lot of questions, but I thank you very much in advance for any help! Blue skies!
This is a very nice & cheap receiver. It works good, long range and no interference noticeable. My set weights 7grams on my scale with all the plastic housings removed. The plastic adds 6 grams, so it pays to replace it with some (clear) tape. There are 3 pcb's inside: one with a microcontroller (fs8004 plus atmel819 eeprom) and the servo connections, and two sub-boards with a small microcontroller (fs8004 again), the rx chip (A7122), a crystal (18.000?) and some other components. There are some issues with it though: There is a rudimentary failsafe that is wrong: longer loss of signal puts all servos in the middle, so including the ESC/throttle. (only some receivers) Second, the antenna connection can be too fragile. It is not that hard to resolder the connection, and shorten the shielded part. That will make the antenna less vulnerable.

I have 10 of these and they all work flawlessly! I fly in the city and have 100's of hours on these with not one glitch or problem. I use these in small 18 inch backyard fliers up to my larger 60 inch gliders. I love these!
I have four of these that perform perfect. Binding is very easy. Put the jumper in the Battery slot, put the ESC in the opposite end,#1. connect battery to ESC. Turn transmitter on while holding down BIND RANGE TEST button. Smaller receiver with blinking light will stay on solid when complete.
