*This transmitter is designed for fixed wing use only. It does not feature swashplate mixing for helicopters.
Sorry there is no hole on the back side. You are using custom made audio cable in order to connect to PC. This is the cable name: USB Simulator Lead for Turnigy GTX3 Transmitter - VRC Sim Compatible. You can check on Hobbyking product list, the id is:GT-USB-SIM
Hi, its me, again (noob) but yea, can i make delta setup with only one channel, was it 1 or 2.. I mean that i will buy y connector to connect 2 servos to one channel. like he does in the video but not dual ailerons thank you
If you mean flaperons, no this TX does not do flaperons, but it definitely does delta and V tail, I fly several deltas with it. If all you want to do is connect 2 servo's together, yes just the Y lead will do it, but you would no longer have flaps.
Back to RC hobby after many years. This will be my first 2.4Ghz set. Want to use it in a scale sailboat, with sail control, rudder but also an electric motor driving a prop. I want to use the throttle stick (which I assume is non sprung) as the sail winching-in control, so it stays where I put it, and the stick on the other side (which I assume is sprung loaded to centre) for the motor control as I want to have forward and reverse.
My question is, can I plug the ESC into one of the other channels, or does it have to be Channel 3?
You could plug the ESC into any channel except channel 5, it's only on and off, getting reverse will be a problem, if the stick is centered it just means the lower portion of travel is null/dead area NOT reverse! you could use the reverse switch's on the front of the TX to change from forward to reverse, you could use channel 6 for variable throttle control, that's the normally flaps/knob top right side of TX, hope that helps you.
The esc plugs into channel three if it just beeps when you test it reverse channel 3, the throttle (channel 3) is reversed on all my planes with this transmitter!, look in the file tab above this question for diagrams on how to connect this, the 7th position on the RX is for binding, it is already pre bound.
My transmitter and receiver were working perfectly for about a day (everything was hooked up to the proper channels and i had full surface control). Then suddenly it stopped working. The transmitter and Rx seem to be bound as i can STILL CONTROL THE CONTROL SUFACES WITH THE TRIMS i however cannot control them with the proper control sticks on the transmitter. Does anyone know what is going on? It seems like there is some sort of problem with the transmitter, not the receiver. I have tried about everything i can think of to fi it but to no avail. Thanks guys :)
Transmitter you mean, no duel rates, what I do is set the throws with the position of the push rods on the individual servo's the old fashion way, the closer the push rod is to the servo armature the less of a throw it will give, If your used to duel rates you won't like this transmitter, it does none of that, this transmitter is a basic unit, I fly 10 or so foamies with it, I love it I like it better than the turnigy 9x I bought, mainly because with the 9x I have to relearn everything, but if you want duel rates and more options you should go the turnigy 9x or 9xr, I see your in Oz, if you ever intend to join a club I would recommend you go the 9x mode 1 when it's available it will have the "C" tick for Australia. It costs more but if your worrying about high and low rates now you will never be happy with one you can't program, (only my opinion) good luck with your choices
Rexy is right, just make sure you don't line the aerial on the RX up with any carbon spars, battery's or metal work, I poke my aerial through so it's vertical and half in and half out of the plane, I've never lost signal and I reckon I can see about 3-400meters, after that distance your plane is GONE!!
If the receiver is exactly the same you could (very unlikely) you will need to replace the receiver with the one you get with this transmitter, have a look in the file area just above this question there is lots of help in there.
I believe you can, look way way down this discussion and there are people talking about setting it up, you need a usb to mono plug and some software but look further down I've never done it, sorry that's all I can do for you.
Am new to this. Am lacking hookup instructions for HK65 xmtr & rcvr. Questions: (1) So far, "Power LED" does not come on when batteries are installed in HK65 xmtr and power switch is turned on. Is this normal? (2) On HK65 receiver and servos to be connected to it: where is the batt. input pwr connected? Rcvr has 6 sets of pins for servo plugs plus 2-pin position labeled "ID set" but no obvious place to connect battery power on either rcvr or servos. How do I power the system up? Thanks!
1...do you have 8 aa's in it? you need to remove the inner battery tray and fli it over..you will see there is room for a total of 8 batteries...also, roll the batteries around and back and forth in the tray- mentioned a lot in this forum.check for drawings online or vids on youtube for how to wire -battery to esc- esc to channel www.link
I use mine for as far as I can see, 3-400meters, I've never had a loss of signal, I mount the aerial vertically half in the plane and half out, keep the aerial away from carbon spars/batteries and metal as best you can they will possibly shield the aerial, there's people down the discussion claiming 1000meters and more, but if your going that far I suggest a radio upgrade.
umm this is kind of off topic but here is really good advisors. So im building a cargo plane and having hk6s and id like to know if i make ailerons/elevator and rudder to the tail. So all controlin the tail, will it work?
SO, I bought this tx and rx combination and i have been thinking if you can actually do elevon mixing, I mean that elevons will do opposite to each others using one stick. can i do that without y-connector. Hope you understand what I meant, Im finnish boy, 13... :D
Plug your servo's into channel 1 and 2, turn your switch on the front of the transmitter marked a-norm/mix to mix, turn the switch marked V-tail/elevon to elevon, try your surfaces for correct positioning, use reverse switch's or swap servo's to get correct aileron positioning, I use this transmitter for a skywalker falcon, teksumo, bonsai (there delta's) works great! don't forget to move pushrods closer to servo shaft to limit travel.
This is a great entry level radio system I am flying two parkflyers with itp and have had no problems whatsoever value for money 100pcnt I am so convinced I have ordered and received and bound two more rx no problem at all Don't be caught up by brand name radios these are great I have Spektrum gear as well and apart from digital trims these radios perform equally as well for reliability

tx works good but rx unit is dead. hobby king needs to check this unit's rx before sent. i have to buy a extra rx unit now.

I made another discovery about the HK6DF radio this morning which I really like, and don't see in Reviews nor Discussions where it's been mentioned and it's a feature worth knowing.
Since the 'Recharge' port is non-functional, users are pretty much relegated to powering the HK6DF with 8 AA batteries unless they invest in some fairly involved (& likely warranty-voiding) mods to the unit. On the other hand, the power consumption is very low so a set of AA's will last a good long time anyway, so I have no problem being 'stuck' with those. But with a good bit of money flying around up in the sky, which we've entrusted to the guardianship of our li'l radio here, how do we know when the AA's have been drained to an unsafe level, without inconveniently checking with a voltmeter before every flight?!?
Answer: It will TELL you! The Green 'Power' LED starts flashiing red when your AA's reach 10 Volts or less. Just verified all this with a multimeter.....cool feature!!

This radio is simple said a great bargain! You can't find a better value for the money. The only complaints I have is the bright light of the green power on LED, but I fixed that in 10 seconds with a black marker pen. I tried to bind the receiver to my Turnigy 9X V2 and an older 6-ch HK V1 tx but it didn't work. I hope HK will come out with extra rx for this radio with a good price on them. I would give it 5 stars if I could! Good job, HK!
