Does anyone know when hobbyking will be getting more in stock or where I can get one to program my controller with in the meantime? Or has anyone tried making one themselves as it seems hobbyking is currently out of stock and I need one asap, thanks.
more stock shouldnt be too far away, yes I have made my own cable, if you google ( Make your own USB cable for HK-T6A calibration ) there is a web site showing how to do it, you can buy cables off ebay although at a much inflated price,
Asher please consider putting your email address in "STOCK ARRIVAL ALERT" this way you will get an email when it come in. Also if you are close I have one you, can borrow! You can PM (private message) in the members forum (Blue Tab at top of Page).
Its not the same as an S-video cable either (although it looks the same and has the same pins and will fit) the outer shield is the earth on this cable on an S-video the outer shield is not used at all, so if your thinking of making your own its not that easy but0 can be done
Rexy03 never say can not be done. The main issue is built into the USB end of thr cable, is a converter from USB to Serial. To buy the parts to make this cable is far over the cost of the cable and postage.
hello i just recieved my orange t-six and i have already bought this usb cable but my computer will not recognize the tx please anyone can you tell me what file to download or exactly what i need to do to get this to work on my simulator i have a windows 7 laptop thank you
Hi Marcus, I use this cable to program my CT6B. Because the T6 is a fully programmable Tx I think you want the cable to connect to your pc for a simulator.
This is a program cable, search for simulator cable. PRODUCT ID: 265000001 any idea?
Happy flying! *)
Tyler NO no software as of yet. It will run on any mac or PC. Can you just look at you next Side walk clean up. Any old P4 or P3 will work. Something with Xp installed and you will be underway. Last year I found a old laptop on the footpath. I put in the car, to bring to the field when I use this controller. Mind you is it is getting less and less now I have a Turnigy9XV2.
Robert sweet then all you will need is this cable and a micro adapter to you phone. So a app that can talk wireless to this, would be great. So please post any great ideas in the members forum, as well. There is a section in the forum for DIY. I think it is under used.
Haydz if you give too many credits to one person too quickly HK will look hard at both of them. Since you have no real reason to start too many new questions, please just be careful. HobbyKing work hard and you need to use them to help. There hand are tired in some things. That is were the members can help. Any way Good Flying and please do not credit me (for a while!) THANKS
hi. i need this 6Ch Rx Tx and the USB cable but i can save money on this combine deal, but the problem is i am not sure whether the cable is included in the combo or not ?
what are the products in the combo
Combo with which other products? if you by the transmitter with the cable, weight will pass 1 kg and you'll pay a lot more. If you need to buy both cable and Tx is better to buy them separated. You'll pay less for the shipping.
Rexy03. Thanks again. Sorry to ask all these Qs. I'm getting really frustrated with HK as they don't seem to want to help or give correct info. I'll try the forums page. Could I speak to you in the forums page? Haydz.
Cool yes it does take a while. So firstly you can reply to most thing. If you have a new question you go to that area and start a new topic. Also if you know the members, users name, you can send a private message!
Rexy03. Thanks for that. I just gave you more points. I sent that last msg to HK support centre. Could you please answer my second last msg to you (the one about how to gain information on the points and polices.)
Haydz, I gained the information from reading lots of info on hobbyking and different forums, I dont think there is any written policy on here, haydz you should take your questions to the forum instead this page
Rexy03. Here is what I have sent to HK.....
I believe that HK's own quotation about customer service is a whole lie due to how HK doesn't seem to care that they are diceving their members quite seriously.
Eg. This is still on the website even though apparently HK stopped giving points away more then a month ago........
Do you know R/C!?

Also I have being treated quite badly by HK delaying my refund and giving bad advise. Also I've had a few items broken when I've received them and it costs more for postage to send it back.
So HK needs to start appreciating their members and start following their own website and quotation.
This is the quotation which I believe us a lie......

//////// Rexy03 hope you can understand this msg.
Haydz, I cant help you in regards to your issues with HobbyKing, I can only suggest you raise your concerns with the CUSTOMER SUPPORT CENTRE via the contact Tab, I know it is annoying trying to get warranty as I have been through it a couple times but this is the risk of buying mail order online regardless of the company involved, i wish you luck with your issues
Haydz it is true. You have give Rexy03 real credits by voting for his answer as best. If he did not answer your question you should not vote him as so. Once you answer some questions, you to may get some credits. But do realize it is not a free for all. It is a place that takes the weight off customer service. Now Rexy03 knows that but since no credit had been awarded he could not say it. In fact it may cost me to tell you.
Rexy03. Thanks for that. If I never asked you* how would I have found out how the poinst are applied (as in where could I read about HKs polices and procedures? And about the bonus points?) You have helped better then HK, could I ask you Qs instead if wasting my time with HKs bunch of informative individuals, if I could how can I talk to you without going through the Cable comments?
Rexy03. Thank- for helping me better then HK. HK wasn't able to inform me if how they work. HK is completely hopeless as this is what they said to me about bonus points.......
Please be advised that we do not offer bonus poinst for helping customers in discussion. We offered points for best answers to customers, but this kind of points can not be used on our website for payment.Please be advised that bonus points reward system for discussion session was cancelled.**-
I believe that HK has no idea what they are talking about.
Thanks again. Haydz.
Newtohobbyking. Thanks for your help. I'm not trying to "sweet talk" anyone I just trying to get good customer service and truthfully responses to my issues. The only place I'm getting that is through other members.
Could you please explain how the 664 points are applied to your account after you help other members.
Eg. Are they $ points? How do you know how much to receive?
I tryed asking HK but their don't want to help.
I've helped numerious members and only being given about 2 but never actually had the points applied to my account. Please help me. Kind regards,
664 is the total credit I have accrued, that doesn't mean i have $6.64 to spend as I may have already spent $4 of it, you get 10 points if you are awarded credit by the original poster , you don't get anything for just commenting , only if credited , look thru other questions and you will see where credit has been given , only about 50% give credit. So my points stay at 664 until someone credits me again then I will be 674
Rexy03. Thanks for that. You haven't being credited any more from helping a couple of members where it states "best answer credit awarded".
How can I give you credit for being better help to me then HK.?
Hello. I am trying to install the Cable Driver with Windows 8 64 bits but the Operational System does not recognize the driver. I already tried install the new driver from Silicon Labs website. CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP Drivers for Windows XP/Server 2003/Vista/7/8 http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pa
ges/USBtoUARTB ridgeVCPDrivers.aspx Thanks
for any help. Sorry, the picture I was upload is in portuguese.
Hi, Can anyone help me? I am running windows 7 and have installed the usb driver, yet when i open t6config and select the com port the program freezes up, only when I unplug the usb lead does the program respond again? so I am unable to set up the TX as yet.
Maybe most of the Tx will never get reprogrammed, but al least you will need to program it for the first time. Even servo direction can't be changed without the cable. And it's also normal to make adjustments in your models while you are building it, like servo endpoints. You can mechanically do it, of course, but is easier with the Tx.
In case you change your servos, you maight want to. This TX can also be used with a simulator, and in case it comes with a 450 Heli clone, you will have to change its settings to match the simulator channels setup. And if you want to use it with any other model, it will be necessary to pro gram it too.
This cable is to program the transmitter through a PC link. It is not intended for simulation software, although some people use a program called pptojoy with hacked versions of the most common simulators.
And this cable for what can i use it if is not for simulator...i have instaled the realflight 4.5 , the driver given here instaled ,but the game does not recognize it.So how can i do work my tx like simulator
