I obtained w/all inf., as soon as my wife gets up I'll POST them(about10 00). about everything is in there to answer ya-ll. hopefully w/the next hr., this is her PC & I do not go into her files w/out her around, because mine is down!!
Christian I do agree. Mostly you would pay more for just a Receiver at ones local Hobby Store. This is great, that once you want to move to a better transmitter, all the receivers you may have will work with the Turnigy9XV2 System too! Good Flying
If you are happy with your new transmitter and receiver stay with it until you want to move onto something like the Turnigy 9XR. But that's in the future, have fun with what you have, at least you know where the best prices are. I know people who have been flying with this transmitter since it was released and they love it. Simple to use if you want it to be or will handle more with your computer. Good point about the cable too.
Hi there, I am new to rc and contemplating buying this controller. This may be an idiotic question, but will this work ok in europe? I see some of the more expensive controllers have different rf standard settings for europe and the us?
Berry fine in Europe but they will not be accepted buy any club. Being 2.4gig they are much better than the old FM Transmitters. HobbyKing sell the receivers in UK and NL. As far as I know you will not get them covered by club insurance.
Hello Berry, this radio is good plus I prefer the silver hobby king, because silver has the drives included in the radio, this radio is just time to configure via the pc with usb cable this is the only flaw in this radio, follow the link radio to which I am telling you: www.link
Sorry, HobbyKing don't allow links to placed in this forum. If you intend to fly in a specific registered club berry I'd advise you to have a chat with some of it's members regarding legalities on what is and isn't allowed. The radio will definitely work anywhere in the world and if you just intend to fly with a few friends then this radio would be excellent. Some clubs may tell you it's not allowed, in fact some will treat you as a leper if you don't spend $800.00 on the latest big name transmitter. Personally I think finding a friendly farmer with a vacant paddock or open stretch of land and just fly with 3 or 4 friends. No club fees or Insurance. But if you want a club, ask the younger guys what they use. Buy the same and standing line waiting for your turn to fly :-)
the two silver sticks are noting but switches which can be used for different options like throttle cut, double throttle and some other pre-defined options using pc data cable. by default this is not set, but u can set it using the pc cable.
pls credit for best answer
thanks and good day.
Adam, you seem to have things back to front. If you make the first post, which you have, then it's your position to vote for the best answer to your question. But you never really asked a question, you made a statement which isn't really what this forum is for. Later on, after buying from Hobbyking a little more you will be able to enter the other forums at the top of the page. You will notice a vote prompt with every reply you get. It's good manners to always pick the best reply and credit the person who replied. Failing to vote will give you a bad name and some people will refuse to answer you if you have a real question. Avoid voting for friends or voting for people who don't actually answer your question. Many people have tried voting just for friends and they have been told to leave the forum. Simply vote for the best answer. Also try not to vote straight away. Unfortunately some members will say anything to get your vote and be completely wrong in their answer. Often others will see the mistake and give the correct answer. You'd look silly voting for the wrong answer :-) Given time you will be able to answer questions as well and help others. Be fair and have fun.
I bougth a variable pitch propeller motor and my actual tx with 4 ch cannot handle this additional ch need. With this 6 ch radio can I use one ch to control the servo that will changes the proppeler pitch ? These additional 2 ch (above the 4 regular ch) are controled by the two knobs on the top of the Tx ? If yes what is the use of the two silver sticks seen near the radio top cover ?
The range depends a lot on the terrain. Lots of hills and trees will affect your signal. Even wet leaves after a shower can cause signal loss if your plane isn't in full view. If you were on a high hill and flying your plane you may get a mile away but low down with plenty of buildings and trees around you may only get 400 meters. Try not to push it too far because loss of signal can lead to loss of plane. Try to avoid heavily built up areas. 2.4 ghz is used for many things other than RC and can swamp your signals. If you can't see which way your plane is going, either towards you or away then you've gone too far. Please avoid the use of boosters or amplifiers, Unless you want a punch on the nose from some irate RC who just had his plane crash because you swamped his signal.:-)
Hi sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but I can't figure out which file out of all the files in the purple files tab is the right one I should be downloading... I'm trying to program my Hobbyking 2.4Ghz Channel Transmitter I bought and to my understanding I need a usb driver and t6 programming program or something to do mixing and stuff but I can't figure out which file I should be downloading since their are so many? I'm using windows 7 btw. And Could anyone also walk me through how to set it up btw I'm sorta new to this... Thanks!!
Hi Arveti, If you can't solder it yourself find a friend who is good at soldering and has a good soldering iron. The antenna can be resoldered by snapping the case apart and carefully soldering the braid and center wire back to the board. Try not to make it any shorter than it is.Make sure there's no short circuit between the braid and center wire.
ILYA first buy it and the programing cable (Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx USB Cable SKU: FS-L001 ). Also buy some servos and a receiver power supply. Then come back and we can set it up. PLEASE! It is all rather easy. There are a few videos around, either here (under the Orange Video Tab) or on yout ubes.
Yes Ilya you can use up to 6 channels with this transmitter. Few planes require more than that. You can use it on a 3 channel 4 channel 5 and 6 channel even a two channel glider if you wanted to. I've used on on a 2 channel boat and it worked well.
Adam no pro or cons just 2.4ghz GOOD and 72mhz Bad. With 2.4ghz the receiver Binds to your Transmitter. This means it only work on your Transmitter (unless you rebind it with bind plug) very safe. Fm 72mhz can be hijacked by any other Transmitter on the same band. IE: If you are using 72.015. And some comes with a transmitter set a 72.015 he will take control or you will loose control!
The difference are two, the frequency (72 vs 2415 MHz) that translates into feasible distance. And the modulation, 72 MHz uses FM in a fixed frec and 2.4 GHz uses spread spectrum (it jumps from frec to frec very quick so if one channel is busy, chances are the next one will be free), and information is transmitted redundantly. 72 Mhz pro: you can boost your signal to do FPV, 2.4GHz just won't reach far. And you can use it with telemetry, that usually cames in 2.4GHz. Con: you need to fly at a local club, and take turns with people having the same or nearest channel. Con: if you try to test anything at home you have to check for interference. My first heli had a 72 MHz radio and I could test it in the backyard but not in the front garage, interference got it jumping around. For beginners, I think is better to use 2.4 GHz.
I have recently received my Tx and Rx set and hooked it up to the aftermarket programming software (***********sgr.info/usbradio/screens.htm). Is it normal for the initial throws to be around 65%? or should they go straight to 100%?
I tried to configure it but it didn't work. I set the VR and SW to Null so the VR Works fine but the SW didn't produce a reaction. Can i do something to use it? If i set the SW to ThroCut or DR the SW works.
Alexander when you say the VR work find. You do mean the VR does??? It should move a servo??? So you need to give the SW a Servo just like the VR. If you can not get it PM me in the Members Forum and I will run mine up and write down the steps?
boa tarde .
estou com problema com meu radio ,hobby king de 6 canais
ele nao segura o a configuraç*ao
toda vez que desconecto a bateria ele pede o bind enao consigo bindalo de novo
oque devo fazer antes de comprar outro
eu conecto o bind no receptor no canal da bateria depois conecto a bateria depois com o botã*o do bind apertado ligo o radio mas nã*o binda já* em outro radio ele binda normal
acredito ser o transmissor que esta defeituoso
opior e que eu nem usei o radio
Hi,my radio is nolonger working,the main board inside has shorted and can't turn it on.any idea of where I can buy the board(the one you find inside with the electronic componet)of this transmitter.if it's over,is there any coolest DIY project to do with it??thanks
it is better to buy another radio, cheapest than buy a board and maybe work or not... also DIY i dont think it will be good in this radio,, also it will be cost more than buying new one.. make this one is replacing parts of the new one :) ..
Im trying to set-up my T6a-V2 for full throws using digital radio software (***********sgr.info/usbradio/default.htm) instead of the T6 config but i can never get the throw to go to 100%? Ive tried messing around with the sub-trims, end points and calibrations and its not made things any better. If anything, its made it worse as now on Ch1, it seems to move to 80% when the stick is moved to the right then only 70% on the left?! is there anyway of restoring the set-up to the stock factory setting then starting again? ive looked at the files tab and found nothing that seems to be a stock factory setting file.
Love this radio! The cd that came with this included the drivers for xp & vista, and the t6config program (to program your transmitter). I installed this on my windows xp (HP laptop) and I kept getting the error "invalid com port" even though I knew it was the right com port from the device manager. I then installed this onto my dad's laptop which is identical to mine and it worked! 4 stars for having this kind of "hit or miss" computer support!

Great price for a 6ch tx/rx combo!
I forgot to order the USB cable however, so that's a bummer but it's my fault ...
To have it shipped together with the set would ofcourse be ideal, just both products with a total price ... that way everyone always has the cable immediately :)
So far so good. Love the range and crystal-clear reception with 2.4mhz power. Manual (found else where in the reviews) could be better, mostly for routing the antennas, if they had to be outside the plane, etc.
4 stars because honestly, there should a paper manual, and the cable should be included.

Excellent radio and especially the money. Great extent simply install the antennas at right angles. Just want to let the lack of manual and software to change the settings. I recommend, especially for beginners of the hobby!
