Hello! I am new at this wonderful hoobie and I would like to purchase Blue Angel Fighter for my first fighter plane...I would like if anyone here, can help me about the TX-RX (this one of 4 channels it is good for the plane or if there is another can you tell me..) and the battery for the plane because I didnt found here.. 1800mAh 3s 25C. I was wondering if a battery greater than this one could be replaced!!I would be greatful of your part if you help!! It's my Birthday Gift :D
Thank You very much,
Hi, this transmitter is rigt hand throttle.
Mode 2 is the same version, but has the throttel on the left. For many it is more natural.
This transmitter would be fine for that type of plane. Search this for a battery that may soot:
ZIPPY Compact 1800mAh 3S 25C Lipo Pack
hope this helps.
Love this Hoby King 2.4G system but today very erratic behaviour on rudder control (model Yacht Ch 1). Eventually took the back off the Tx and manipulation of Ch1 potentiometer localized the problem - a squirt of RP7 into the potentiometer and hey presto, like new again!
Can't understand why pot wiper got dirty - Tx well looked after and kept free from moisture and dust etc. Ah well all's well that ends well!
OPTO in radio control (RC) contexts means Opto-coupler. On the ESC (Electronic Speed Controller) ie. Motor Controller, the power used to drive the motor is electrically isolated from the power used to control the servos. This is supposed to reduce radio interference between the motor and receiver as light signals are used between the motor and receiver circuits. As a result, the ESC requires separate battery packs, one of the motor and the other for the receiver.
BEC In Radio Control (RC) contexts, the BEC is extra circuitry on the ESC (Electronic Speed Controller ie. Motor Controller) to provide power to the controls (such as steering, servos, receivers) to the controlled vehicle (eg. airplane, car, helicopter, boat) so that this control circuitry does not need to carry it’*s own battery pack. That is, it piggy backs of the battery pack used to drive the motors of the vehicle or in other words, the motor and servos share the same battery pack.
UBEC stands for Ultimate Battery Eliminator Circuit. In RC (Radio Control) contexts, a UBEC is an improved version of a BEC. ESCs with a UBEC use circuitry that is more efficient than a ESC with a BEC, thus you save battery power. Also, ESCs with UBECs tend to run cooler than ESCs with BECs. DID YOU WANT ANY MORE THANKS!
Abhijith that is fine. It is a bit heavier. So can I ask where you got you Li-ions form. I have been messing around with Li-ion for a while. I have used the on land based models but have yet to get mine in a plane YET!
Abhijith are you sure it said SBEC? not uBec? A bec is battery elimination circuitry. So it saves you having a extra battery pack for the receiver. It is just a voltage regulator that reduces your 11.1 or 7.4 volts to 5.5 volts. (Sometime 14.4 v). Now to switch. Many just plug your battery in and she is live. If you want to be better than that then you will need a switch, that can handle the current. I use the 240v to 120v select switch on old computer supplies. May be HK can start selling them too!
I want to use this TX/RX to run two servos and turn on/off lights on a model I'm building. Do I have to use a big Lipo style battery pack or can the old fashioned AA battery pack to power the Receiver, the servos and the lights? Want to know before I buy how much I'm going to have to invest in this.
Skiffalope this receiver only run on 4.5v to 6.5v. So you AA battery pack will be fine for it and the servos. The big Lipo pack is to run an electric motor. It requires a uBec (normally built in the ESC) to run the receiver, if you are using the big Lipo battery!
Benjamin voltage for the receiver is 4.5v to 6.5v. Your 12v is far to much. May I ask what you are building please. You need a esc (with ubec) or Ubec or a receiver battery pack. Please do not run 12v into the receiver it will break it.
How do I program this transmitter? Do I need a cord? No instructions were provided with this TX and RX. I am new to flying. Doe it need to be programed if I just run it the way ir comes out of the box? I just want to fly a plane aroung the field and not do anything fancy.
Bill what do you want to program PLEASE. It is a simple 4 channel. If you wish to reverse a servo you use the switches, on the front. If you wish V-Tail mixing, you have to buy a V-tail mixer. (A little item that goes inside the Plane). It does say in the LISTING:::: The T4A makes a good backup transmitter or a take anywhere unit. Drop it, scratch it, leave it in the car and forget about it. This is what the T4A is all about.
Not suitable for the multi flapperon, mixer, vtail, FPV, robot controlling hobbyist.::::::
Bill the Orange HobbyKing RX does not work with this Transmitter. The Orange HobbyKing Rx will run on most receiver battery packs or off a ESC (with built in UBEC). The receiver here is a 6ch RX and it works off the same, but will run with the 4Ch Transmitter, pictured here! No other leads needed, unless you want to buddy it with another transmitter!
Has anyone had trouble with signal while flying. I have lost a couple of models. I am an experience flyer. Full batteries and range check comleted. It hapens early in flight with the model close. Do power lines affect the signal? This is my first 2.4 setup. I have another 4 models set up and am reluctant to fly them.
Jatun ever since I went to 2.4, I have not had a problem. I do recommend you rebind you receiver, if you have had loss of signal problems. Also some thing I am going to do soon, is fit a Voltage Protector (TURNIGY Voltage Protector
SKU: TURN-VP). That is one of the cheapest one HK sells. Are you all electric or fuel? If you are using an ESC, with an ubec you can have voltage drop. So for that couple of dollars, it is worth it!
this is regarding changing mode 1 to mode 2:
Remove all batteries. Open the radio, 4 screws at the back, and change the ratchet from the Elevator on the right to the Throttle on the left and the spring lever from the throttle to the Elevator. Replace the jumper on the white socket to short the lower two pins. Thats it!
My Question is, what do you mean replace the jumper on the white socket to short the lower two pins? any video or pic or something? please help...thanks
Put the bind plug into the "BAT" port of the receiver and then put your power source (4.8-6v battery or BEC) into any one of the other ports,you should then get an LED flashing,then hold down the bind button on the transmitter and then switch it on,keep holding down the bind button for a few seconds more then release,the receiver LED should then stop flashing and go solid,once solid the receiver and transmitter are bound,remove the bind plug and thats it.
I mean on the EU warehouse!
At all I don´*t understand the HK warehouse strategy. For me it look´*s like that HK s grown to fast. I´*m from Austria. If I see an item in UK I can not order it, I have to order it in asia! There are to many warehouses in EU that have only some intems in stock. That makes no sens. Is better to have only one EU warehouse that have a good stock. But the stock at HK is a problem at all. Hope for a better future and my company will order in a EU warehouse again.
Dear Mel.This is very simple problem.one TX must change their frequency.U must Replace one of TX & RX Crystal pairs.This Crystal pair must be same frequency..u can buy it from e-bay or any hobby channel..
For those who are tired of bad english and poorly translated instructions. Here is how to bind the MODE 1 radio system.
1. Connect 8 AA batteries inside your transmitter and leave it turned OFF. 2. Connect your Motor to your ESC. 3. Connect your ESC to your Receiver on Channel 3. 4. Connect your Bind-Plug to the BAT channel. 5. If you want to test a Servo, connect a Servo to Channel 1,2, or 4. 6. Connect any good charged Battery to your ESC. You should here a beep from your ESC (some ESC's do not beep) and your Receiver's LED Light should start blinking. The LED is hidden under the sticker. 7. While Holding down the Bind-Range-Test Button, turn on your Transmitter. After about 3 or 10 seconds the LED will stop blinking and you should be able to control your motor and any extra servos you connected. 8. If not try it all again. I found that turning off my Transmitter and turning it on helped reset any errors. 9. Give me points if this helped. :D
Excellent Product. Binding was easy, following Trance123 instructions. One note, you have to have an ESC to do the binding, as the binding plug takes up where you would normally plug the battery in. Once bound, you can then power up as normal.

Hobby King 2.4Ghz 4Ch Tx & Rx
It is well made and works well! I have flown it at a distance of 500 metres with the range check button down & no problems. Very good value for money Oh so cheap, BUT it has twin receivers! This is almost unheard of in the lower priced systems.
I believe twin Rx to be very important. Why? Firstly I worked in the video industry for 21 years and it is common knowledge there that twin Rx is far more reliable in getting the signal through. If one Rx can't receive the other will.
To someone who is first time to 2.4Ghz you would need to look up the "binding" process on another manufacturer's site as there is no manual. I am using NiMh AA's successfully in the Tx and these can be charged thru the input jack from your usual charger

Hobby King 2.4Ghz 4Ch Tx & Rx I have received it on yesterday. This product was ordered on the 3rd Jan and arrived in my mail box here in Czech republic eleven days later. In Tx i use Sanyo 2700 mAH. I have measure, does Tx has a power input 147 mA. This i find werry good. Rx work good too without second receiver, but have not yet try diference. I will be buy again. Best regards from Brno.
