Description

As the old saying goes, the best just got better. This is definitely the case with the Turnigy TGY-i6S as it builds on the already great Turnigy-i6. The TGY-i6S still uses the solid and reliable 2.4GHz Automatic Frequency Hopping Digital System (AFHDS) spread spectrum technology. It is also a superb budget radio for both new and experienced pilots and is designed with multi-rotor / drone flying in mind. It can also be used for planes / gliders.

The Turnigy TGY-i6S is a 6 channel (PWM) or a 10 channel (PPM)  2.4GHz AFHDS Digital Proportional RC system and comes complete with two receivers, the dependable TGY-iA6B 6 channel receiver and the new TGY-iA6C receiver for PPM or SBUS.

The new look design comes with some exciting new features. This radio incorporates a monochrome backlit LCD touchscreen making it easy to program and make changes  in sunlight or at night. There are two internal dual omnidirectional high gain antennas (for more reliability) built inside the frame so they can’t be damaged in transit. To help control your aircraft there are lots of programmable switches, buttons and scroll wheels. Making them great for setting up flight modes and the scroll wheels could be used for controlling camera gimbals. 

The ergonomically designed case makes for easy use of all controls. All switches and scroll wheels are in easy reach and the adjustable length sticks can be set for comfortable use.  There is a loop for attaching a neck strap and a phone/monitor holder mounting point. There is even a mini USB port for easy connection to your PC for updates or for connecting (via USB) to your favorite simulator programs.

Each transmitter and receiver has its own unique ID. Once the transmitter and receiver have been paired, they will only communicate with each other, preventing other systems accidentally connecting to or interfering with the system's operation. Each transmitter hops between 16 channels in order to reduce interference from other transmitters. 

The TGY-i6S comes in either Mode 1 and Mode 2 and is available in black or white for each mode.

With all the features the TGY-i6S offers it is one of the best radios available, dollar for dollar.

• Entry level 6 channel 2.4ghz radio with telemetry capability
• i10 style customized Gimbals with dual bearing supports
• Softer grips for long use times
• 2 and 3 position switches, momentary switches and self-centering proportional wheel switches (2 of each)

Good to be able to use 10ch rx and get all 10chs real pity it dosnt show what model your on or able to name it.
dont change to the flysky firmware unless you dont mind losing the toggling thumbwheels. The turnigy version is much better if you want to use the thumbwheels for camera features like pan and tilt, as you can toggle it both ways so the servo/camera stays where you put it, on the flysky firmware they keep returning to centre just like the sticks.
If you go to flysky firmware you cant go back as no stock turnigy firmware is available

A very nice TX with a good touch display. Only downside was that I came with an old firmware so it needed an update, and you need to remember to order cables for the iA6C rx. Nice gimbals and adjustable sticks, lots of aux switches, rx voltage view in the display and nameable air-modes.

This transmitter is great apart from one thing. I found that the gimble stick ends were not very grippy. My thumbs kept slipping off. A quick change and it was sorted. Other than that issue for me the tx is easy to set up. The gimble are a bit looser than I'm used to but will get used to that. Easy to see screen and responsive touch controls. I would recommend this tx to both new pilots and experienced ones alike.

I also bought this small transmitter – everything is fine!
It works great out of the box – perfect deal for this price.
But same as “DAVID” wrote, there is no way to update the firmware.
Come on Hobbyking – this Update would be great and very helpful!

There is a serious issue with this radio. The range is only about 100 metres. Barely got off the runway today when control was lost, regained for a second, then the Skywalker crashed from 20 feet up. Happened twice today. Then I did a range test and found that when the receiver's telemetry signal gave up (there is a beep warning and display on the radio), the radio signal to the plane is also gone!

And 'the best quality/price radio I've ever taken with so many channels (10), prefect for my drone apm.
The touch screen is very nice and the keys are better than the old model. The only thing that puzzles me is that the receiver has IA6C the integrated voltage sensor with a specific port, however, does not provide this Turnigy cable and does not even have idea what the connector is. It was very helpful to use this sensor.

Haven't had any issues really with it so far. Only got 4 stars as it lost connection around 200-250m straight line of sight and no obstacles.

Great feel nice and sleek radio, like it was said earlier cant use FreeSky firmware, no Expo, makes it a kinda bad for aeroplane, for multirotors no issues at all, trim needs some kind of getting used to for traditional trim users
