The Turnigy X6B is a 6 channel two-way receiver designed for multi-rotor aircraft. It uses the 2.4GHz AFHDS 2A (Automatic Frequency Hopping Digital System) protocol and has a dual omnidirectional antenna with superior noise reduction techniques for reliable interference-free operation.
It’s compact, easy to install and boasts a rich easy to use interface. The X6B supports 6 channel PWM output, standard PPM output and i-BUS support for up to 18 channels alongside a reliable voltage sensor interface.
This is an excellent addition to your Turnigy TGY-i6s, Turnigy Evolution or Turnigy AFDHS 9x transmitters as well as a number of other AFHDS 2A transmitters such as FS-i10, FS-i8, FS-i6, FS-i6S, FS-i6X, FS-i4 and FS-i4X.
An excellent receiver for multi-rotor drones as it is lightweight, cuts down on cabling and comes with built-in battery monitoring.

I used it for my quad setup. I used 3pin connector, connected on iBus on flight controller and it works as a charm. It has holes that 30,5mm separated, but too small diameter, so I used drill to make them 3mm, and it fit in my electronic stack above flight controller.
I got 4 channels + 6 Aux channels to use. Did not test range yet, but it worked flawlessly on ~200 meters.I had to solder to the pads on the back. GND, VCC and PPM connected and it is working correctly. Tried to solder the iBus to my FC serial port Rx with no success so switch to PPM which works.

2* quality for no cables or info on how to get themThe X6B is a very good receiver for use with mini-quads and a AFHDS 2A transmitter like the Turnigy Evolution of FlySky i6 among others. It provides telemetry for the quad's battery voltage and has connections for i-BUS (best), PPM (OK), or PWM (LOL). It has decent range and is great for the money.
It comes with a one sheet manual and I had it bound to my TX within 10 seconds of powering on with the bind button held. I had my TX displaying battery voltage and RSSI (ERR% anyway) within a few minutes.
- telemetry (battery voltage and ERR% which is like RSSI)
- replaceable antennas (u.fl type connectors)
- small size (good for mini quads but not small enough for micro quads)
- decent range (something like 300m, will depend how you mount antennas)
- This HK / Turnigy version doesn't come with any connectors/cables, and you will need at least 1 3-pin connector for iBus and another 3-pin connector for voltage telemetry. (PWM requires an 8-pin connector.) In contrast, the FlySky version of the X6B purchased elsewhere came with extensive cabling (3 of the 3-pin cables and an 8-pin connector, all with silicone wire).
* I wish HobbyKing would offer a cable kit for it as a listed accessory to make ordering easy. * With cables included this would be a 5-star value.It's not tiny, it's the same width as most Naze 32, CC3D, F3, etc., but the holes aren't big enough to stack unless you ream them out, it is however less bulky than most of the TGY receivers.
I like the small connection ports, it makes for a much cleaner build.
The antennas are also much nicer than most TGY receivers, they detach and rotate. It would be super cool if HK would offer replacements, but if they do, I have not yet found them.
My only real complaint is that for all its small connection ports, it does not come with a single cable. This is extra upsetting for me, because I asked a product specialist in chat if it came with cables since their were none in the pictures, and I was told that it included all cables and that the pictures would be updated soon. I managed to make some cables work, but I don't like being misled.
I plan on buying at least one more of these because it is much nicer than the other available TGY receivers, but I intend to upgrade to FrSky soon.
I recommend, but make sure you have cables.How it connects is a question, respons of customers service is that you have to buy seperate cables but they don't know which????!!!!????
We made them big but in the end we stay in the cold.......Manual is vague. Nice connectors but no cables. Indicates connector function but not which pin is which.
