The HK6S is an value for money, entry level 6 channel transmitter, ideal for many PNF & ARF Models that require 6ch operation. The HK6S has a retract switch and proportional flap dial in easy reach, the transmitter also features elevon and V-tail mixing and servo reversing.
Key Features: 6-channel 2.4GHz transmitter. Servo reversing function . Elevon and V-tail mixing available. Features build-in antenna. Easy to use control for basic models. FHSS 2.4ghz Technology Includes 6-channel receiver Mode 1 (THROTTLE ON THE RIGHT)
Included: 1 x 2.4Ghz transmitter 1 x 2.4Ghz Receiver 1 x Bind Plug.
Note: It is comptible with HK-6DF receiver.
*This transmitter is designed for fixed wing use only. It does not feature swashplate mixing for helicopters.
If I understand correctly, the only Rx compatible w/ this Tx is the one that comes w/ it. If that's true, why doesn't HK stock that Rx in their US warehouse? I have a Turnigy 4X FHSS Tx & XR5000 Rx used in my FT Flyer & that Rx isn't available in the US either. Is there another Rx compatible w/ the Turnigy Tx stocked in the US? I realize these are inexpensive radios, but is stocking the associated receiver too much to ask?
I bought one of this,, dose anyone know how to hook the receiver to power? There's only ports for the servos & speed controller and one ant. hanging out
It has to get power from some where
1) plug bind plug(in "id set" position)
2) turn on the receiver by (plugging in the esc/ubec/battery)
3) turn on the transmitter
4) wait a few seconds(10 should be enough)
5) unplug the bind plug
6) turn off the receiver by unplugging the power
7) turn on the receiver again by plugging the battery back in and put a servo to test it If it works then you are done. If it doesn't work repeat the steps.
You need a servo per aileron.
Plug one servo into ail channel
Plug the other into AUX
Go into the transmitter settings and select wing mixing. Select flap.
This is where the headache starts. You will find that they're all messed up, may work both in the same direction, wrong direction, or when you flip the flap switch it flips it the wrong direction to spoilerons instead.
Few ways to help fight through it*
Reverse one or both of the channels. If that doesn't work, unplug the servos from the receiver and swap them and repeat reversing channels until it works properly.
Easiest way to make sure your ailerons are deflecting the proper way*
Right input makes right aileron (as you would sit in the plane) go up.
I am building a tricycle controlled with an Arduino.
It will have a unidirectional motor for propulsion.
It will have a unidirectional motor for brakes.
It will have a bidirectional motor for steering.
What would be a good trans/receiver for this project?
Marin all you can do is ask. If you want to be heard consider placing your request on the Open Forum (Blue Tab at Top of Page). In there is a topic under Questions For HobbyKing: What do you want to see in your warehouse?. So this would be a good place to ask, as well!
All decent members on this forum please take note. On Monday of this week I had 1500 points after my name. Everybody has some points, mostly legally. It took me 2 years to get those points. They don't mean anything except that I've done the right thing by 1500 people or given good answers. Unfortunately a person booted off this forum for scamming returned and made almost 2800 points in under 6 months. Absolutely impossible without help. She actually gave herself those points to impress everyone into thinking she was a real RCer. \She is far from it. In two years she has made less than 10 purchases from HobbyKing but managed to steal $2,000.00 from them in 20 cent pieces. You may remember someone called Kellyann. One and the same person. Now she has been playing games with my points and adding anywhere between 150 and 100 points a day. I know that's impossible that I gained those points legally. NewToHobbyKing will shortly be screaming that I gave myself those points. Why would I? 1500 points for 2 years was OK for me but to suddenly jump by 500 in 5 days makes me feel ill. I give you my word I would never do anything like that. I have contacted HK on 2 occasions requesting they remove them but nothing has happened. They make me feel like a thief even though I get nothing for an extra 500 points. Please believe me I virtually live on this forum as many have abused me for, but they were ilegally obtained as are a number of other new members running around with Pro Contributor to their name. Ignore those flags and the points, they mean nothing because people think it's cool to be a Pro. If you know a member is too new to having so many points ignore them, especially NewToHobbyKing.
I have no access to any forums. My points are being manipulated for the reason I stated above and this is the only protection I have. Why is this person allowed access to this forum after being made to leave for scamming. If your aim is to protect this forum please do something about NewToHobbyKing AKA Kellyann AKA Allison AKA Sally AKA Bacter and others. It's all very well to delete everything but why not look into why it's happening and stop it for good. If HobbyKing doesn't care. You are going to lose many helpers. A number have already left due to this person. How about the newbies running around with Pro Contributor under their names and fake points. Deleting posts isn't solving the problems Scott. What about the idiot posting videos her nothing to do with HobbyKing but solely to see how many people click to watch him talking. obviously high on something or the guy posting 9 of each video on a page. This place is a mess but I have no protection from this person so I make my own. Why would I spend up to 16 hours a day trying to help people if I didn't care about this forum. Being stuck in bed 24/7 this is my only outside contact. I spend $10,000.00 and get treated like dirt. Thanks, I really appreciate it. This person is a proven liar, thief and will stop at nothing to get every cent possible out of HobbyKing Whilst buying nothing except enough to be able to post here. Meanwhile I can't use the buddy system, the classifieds, or any other forum that every buyer should have access to. I was banned from the chat channel on trumped up charges and get a lifetime ban. Stuff it, just sweep it under the carpet, don't worry about the cause. I expected better of you Scott. I thought you were a decent guy, maybe I just expect too much.
kaylan: You have been banned on the forum several times but keep sneaking back in using different BS accounts so don't even try that line. I wonder why you keep getting banned scammer? To all concerned. NewToHobbyking is a repeat offending and returning scammer who is absolutely NOT an Australian as it's profile suggests.
You did say you were leaving scammer! Then again, why would we expect a scammer to keep his word.
Did I steal any money? did I run 6 accounts getting the other 5 to ask really dumb questions and then give a ***ber answer to get $2,000.00 worth of 20 cent pieces. Have I returned to the forum I was "band" from well yes actually to see you trying to get people to protect you and find out you'd been trying to make me as bad as you. Have I credited my points with over 17,500 points over 2 years and then try to incriminate me by adding 500 points to my account. Every time you did it I asked HobbyKing admin to remove them. They don't make me feel guilty, just dirty knowing my points I worked bloody hard to get was stuffed up by a thieving scammer. What about the constant interruptions when I'm talking to people and then you add that sick "Thanks for the chat" I have never and will never chat with you. We have nothing in common. You are definitely sick, I know you're on drugs for your obsessions. One of them being getting everything you can out of HobbyKing. You rave about us buying from HobbyKing, of course we do, I've proven it 101 times. How much have you bought in 2 years Kalyan Prodhan just enough to allow you to stuff this forum up.Less than 10 items in 2 years. You are a liar trying to live a lie. It seems you don't even remember running the scamming group and the proof is still on this forum. You can't deny it but you do. You are sickening, I would even go so far as to say mentally unbalanced. Tekk us all about your Australian upbringing schools, where you've been. why you never work. all about running an aero club Which organisations did you have to join, what groups do you belong to, which flying club do you now belong to. Simple questions anyone could answer, come on prove you are who you say you are not later, right now you could answer those questions in a few minutes. I dare you, once and for all. give us tangible proof.
We all know you live on this forum as you stated earlier as noone in the real world could possibly stand associating with you, you are one lonley muva fker.... with the obvious 'hots' for kellyann, suprised she aint had you for stalking
No, This really isn't the radio for you. Something like the 9X or 9XR would be much better. This one is entry level and gives you only reverse channels. No programming whatever. No ability to change parameters or program anything. You need more than a bare basic transmitter. Sorry
Sorry RJM16. I just did some study on the transmitter on another site and it does appear to have the functions necessary to fly a Quad. I do apologize. for my tardiness. I was thinking of a different radio which looks similar but doesn't have the functions this does. Quite surprising considering the cost.
I'm tempted to try a tricopter or quad but with all the planes I have my wife would think it's just a fad. I've seen someone just trying to keep his quad airborne, playing with the control board. I have patience but it would drive me mad. Even afterhegot it right it would suddenly go haywire and he was forever breaking parts. He reckoned he could have bought 4 goodplanes for what he spent on the quad. I think they are way too expensive just for testing. Great for FPV but that's been done to death plus I spent 16 years shooting video and had enough If they were much more reliable and easier to serup and fly maybe I'd try it. Then I could literally fly it from my bed Whilst it was in the garden. Hey that's a good idea.
Yes this radio handles Elevon mixing which is basically what you want. A great tutorial can be found at this address but make sure you remove all spaces when you copy and paste this into your browser...... http :// z8rc. com /2012/11 www.link
Sorry, HobbyKing have made sure nobody can put links in here to help people like yourself. If you google Delta wing or elevon mixing for this transmitter you will find a tutorial of some type. But yes the radio is OK.
Hi Pascal, yes if you want with flaps and retracts.

Nice Tx & Rx package, have had mine for almost a month now and it hasnt let me down yet. The best value package on the net, that I have found. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good cheep Tx & Rx package. The only down side is that it takes 8 AA batteries, not that it really matters. I'll be buying a few more anyway, good product HK!

I see that most receivers have a plug labeled bat and this is also the bind. On the HK6S all I see is 1-6 and ID Set. Where can I put my 6.6V LiFePO? I saw a video where they had it on number 3? Can anyone verify where to plug in a battery and how the polarity is? I cannot find any documentation on this so far. Also, how do you bind this to the HK6S transmitter, I dont see a bind button on the transmitter.
Quality is awsome! for this price will se houw it handles

Just tried mine in the air today after previously ground testing to about 200m (more than adequate for park flyers). Using in a modified Kyosho Spree with outrunner etc and it worked perfectly and the control was very sensitive. Previously had an Orange twin wire receiver installed which took up a bit of room and was a lot heavier and was using a Futaba 2.4 6ch trans. Apart from the fact that the Futaba has dual rate capability this set flys the plane just as well. I found the control to be very sensitive and precise and will have to reduce the control surface throws or grow very soft fingers ! Have already converted this one to a twin throttle set-up for a scale boat as a trial (twin receivers, ESCs, batts, etc) and even with 2 receivers on the one radio you have perfect control (slight trim differences in motors aside) Have already purchased another set and now will have 6 receivers, (just received 3 and all bound instantly) Excellent value and perfect for smaller planes. Still 5 stars plus for me. Another great feature is that everything is plugged into the pc board so you can move stick functions around for anything by the looks of it!
