Looking for a 10 channel radio system complete with on board telemetry? The Turnigy TGY-i10 has arrived! The TGY-i10 is bursting with features which are perfect for the modeller who requires maximum control and real time telemetry.
The TGY-i10 uses 2.4GHz AFHDS 2 (automatic frequency hopping digital system 2) which spans the whole frequency band. Equipped with a high sensitivity receiver, this radio system guarantees an optimal and highly secure link between the transmitter and receiver.
The innovative design of the new TGY-i10 makes the handset extremely lightweight while the menu items and data is presented on its 3.55 inch TFT touch screen!
The TGY-i10 radio system uses high gain, high quality multi directional antennas, each transmitter has a unique ID, when binding, the receiver saves that unique ID and will only accept signals from the transmitter it is matched with, this prevents interference from any other radios and ensures the safety of your model.
The TGY-i10 radio system utilizes extremely efficient components and high speed processor chips for those complicated mixing settings. In comparison this radio system uses 1/10th of the power of a standard FM system.
Another key feature of the TGY-i10 is its telemetry capabilities, the radio system has the ability to monitor real time rpm / voltage and temperature data which provides added security when flying your models.
If you require more than 10 channels an i-Bus receiver (TGY-AEV01) is included, which will provide you with an extra 4 channels which allows an additional 16 servos to be connected.
The TGY-i10 really is one of the most intelligent and innovative radio systems available today and all at a price that will not break the bank!

So if you thinking about to buy this, I would say buy it right now. I am a European Champion modeler, before i have expensive transmitters. To set a new model was always a pain and the receivers was also very expensive. 0 problem with this i10, and not a pain anymore to set a model, and the receivers are very cheap. You can not find better in the market than this. Hall effect gimbals should be a blessing for all of us who use this transmitter.I have been a Futaba man all my time in this hobby 40 + years. I have the old attack R 2 ch when I first started out- T6ch EX Fasst & 7ch Heli Fasst radios and 2 old 2 ch pistol grip sport radios. I was looking to buy a newer radio w/s bus capability when I ran across the TGY i10 I could not believe all the options it came with & telemetry it has all the features I wanted and then some! It feels awesome in my hands well balanced,thin, light weight it did not feel like a $100 "plastic" cheap radio to me at all very VERY pleased with it I almost bought the 9ch Taranis but only for the voice feature I thought it would be very helpful to "hear" my low battery or time warning rather than try and look down or listen for the beeps & I did not want to spend a extra 80'ish more dollars just for that. I did contact HK and was told that it will be mentioned in the next meeting to maybe add that feature in a software up date if HK would do that this would be the PERFECT RADIO IMO hands down! I really like this radio for the money and everything it has to offer you just can't go wrong. HK PLEASE offer the software up date for the voice feature there would be a lot of HAPPY HAPPY TGY i10 radio users for sure!WOW. All I can say is wow. I went from a Futaba 9 ch to this guy and the TGY-I10 is awesome. Cant beat the price. Super simple setup. Its dummy proof...Im using this radio for bunch of my DIY planes.
It works fine and great.
I am buying Quad for rtf one. I am planning to use this awesome radio.
That telelemrly system works just fine, voltage is accurate.
It really helps me through flightStep 1, upgrade firmware on both tx and rx. all done through supplied usb cable.
Step 2, under rx setup, enable ppm. this gives you 8 channels on ch1 output on receiver.
Step 3, plug in supplied ibus servo extension module for channel 9 and 10 use.
Step 4, leave the model type as plane to allow 6 flight modes to be setup using conditions. video will be available on youtube channel Shift Happens.What's awesome.
The screen, size, buttons/controls, included battery, included accessories/sensors, ability to update.
Once updated, you can use the receiver in PPM mode for pixhawk which is not advertised. I almost wasted my money on buying the iA10B receiver seperately.
What's not so awesome.
The drone mode removes a lot of usable settings like end points, linear mixing, etc, why!??!!? this makes this mode useless for me as i want 6 flight modes, using another mode just means the image is of a plane, but still, it annoys me. and would be an easy fix.
Please fix this issue HK!
Other than that this is awesome value for money.Just received on this aug 2017, has a right firmware version (1.07/07-08-2015, including quadcopter!).
- Good packing, nice rx sensors (easy to set up), good and soft sticks, excellent ergonomy. SD card (accepts TF micro card) is a real plus!
It tooks some time for finding functions and programming a test fixed wing model.
- First checks and feeling: looking good and working, I keep it!
So I opened and modded it a bit (set to mode 1, bigger internal battery, reverse the handle, install a sun shade). Will add a charging socket for USB plug longer life and buy other receivers. No real need to update firmware, for my usage...
Still the "throtlle cut" problem, but can be OK using a condition switch and flat curve!
- All included sensors work, an extra altitude one works also: telemetry is nearly perfect, but limited to 4 lines! I will never need all the features: I prefer to fly than spending time to track potential bugs...!
- This system is pleasant, handy, modern and good price! Included help files are useful for learning the system specificities and succeed the programming.
- Now, remains me the range test in open field: I hope more than 800m for my gliders? This will be the key of being fully happy!This is a great transmitter for the money. I now have three transmitters using one for planes, one for sailboats, and one to have as a spare. The transmitter is very easy to program and I have never lost reception. It does have a few drawbacks.
One, the transmitter has a single cell LiPo battery that you can charge up to about 4.10 volts. When the battery discharges down to 3.75, you have to stop and recharge the battery. It means after every day of flying, you have to recharge the battery. I have also found that if you crash your plane, check that the receiver still is in working order. I have bound the receiver and it stays bound as long as you have power on the receiver. Turn off the receiver, and you might loose the bind. Check it out.This is a great transmitter for the money.

Very cool with the on board monitors, Battery % Temperature, and rpm. Gives me peace of mind that I don't have to worry about my battery getting low, I can see it right on the radio! And 10ch. Tons of switches. I don't think it matters if you buy mode 1 or 2 cause you can change it right in the software with a few taps of the touch screen. All around this radio feels very nice! The screen I noticed is finicky with my fingers, I'm a heavy equipment mechanic and my hands are rough and sometimes doesn't read my input to swipe. But still, would buy again 10/10.
