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

• Softer grips for long use times

Great form factor, perfect for sims, disappointing for fixed wing aircraft

Sep 28, 2021

It seems I read too much into the marketing blurb that this was an improvement on the more conventional looking TGY-i6 - that model would actually be a better Tx for planes, even though this one is likely better for quads.
It has been awesome for using on a flight simulator on my Windows 10 PC, and connected seamlessly to PicaSim (superb free slope soaring sim). I will probably retire it to just this use.
I love the form factor and stick feel, and the touch screen is clear and works well. Handle is also nicely engineered and solid.
I am only interested in fixed wing electric and sailplanes, and for this usage it falls short of the previous model (i6), and also the FlySky equivalent, due to the following issues.
(1) There are no conventional trim buttons; and the electronic versions here cannot safely be adjusted in flight. (2) There is no "rates" option to switch between high and conventional rates. (3) There is no elevon or v-tail built in mixing (minor, as that can be worked around). (4) Range is ~500m (not verified), which seems low for larger gliders. (5) Receiver options are very limited and large for smaller sailplanes (DLG / 2M RES), the lighted option never seems to be in stock (the smaller of the ones shipped is only suitable for quadcopters).
What is disappointing is that it appears the FlySky version of the same machine seems to have (2) and (3) in its firmware. BTW I have updated to the latest firmware, which was easy to do (2.00 21-Jun-2017).
It is really impressive at this price point that this Tx can do extensive mixing, has expo, rates, throttle curve functionality, and end-point adjustments. And some of these come with little graphs that make it obvious what they are doing.
Overall a great transmitter for quads, but a close miss for fixed wing - I am now shopping for another after only a couple of months.

Comes with 2 receivers, IA6B and IA6C. IA6C has b-det Port which the Lipo can be connected directly onto it. goes up to 4S.

The remote is very good. capacitive touch screen, good overlay, can be connected to PC using micro USB cable to act as a Simulator controller. Tested with the fpv game "liftoff"

I connecte the IA6C over s.Bus to CC3D, works flawlessly! But i wonder theres a Bind jumper cable in the box, since the IA6C doesnt have Bind pin.

Overall construction is ok. Lots of plastic, Thum sticks are made of metal and can be adjusted. Rubber pads on the sides for better grip. Handlebar is Aluminium.

Takes 4x AA Batteries, i used rechargeable batteries which makes the Battery symbol look half empty due to the lower voltage. This can be changed by tapping on the Battery indicator and change the Voltage there. Also the B-det port can be enabled there, but only if the receiver is turned on.

BUT, theres some issues! Thats why 4/5

The Turnigy I6S still dont have the Firmware update like the Flysky i6s has.
The Flysky i6s works with the IA6C receiver, but not IA6B!

The top Sliders cant be changed from increase/decrease value to direct control.
Also the speed the value changing cannot be changed. its rather slow.

The back buttons are Toggle buttons, cannot be set to momentarily.

Theres no Display holder for the exisiting mount on the Remote, must be purchased seppe
