I have tried all ways , but the fact is = it gives an answer , but it's a random answer : in short = doesn't work at all ! No link between the thing you try to weight and the datas given * Whatever you try .
I bought it several month ago. I check the results and found the figurs had no link with the true weight ! Not even a linear rate, perfect random numbers !... I put in in the garbage. Then later I tried lots of mesures , just to play with the constrain gauge . Then , instead of "g" ( gramme ) Unit, I made mesure check with " gn" or "gr" Unit ( grain or whatever ) and if you take it for " grammes " then the figure means something reliable with the weight . Try it , and tell me . So it could have been a unit mistake in the calculator program.
I confirm : once set on " gn" UNIT ,this scale is reliable and rather precise . ( the 8ch Tf9X receiver , given for 18 g in HK site, is actually weighing 18 gr :That's great ! So:if you warn the buyers of this little flaw you won't have any critics any more. . And occidental peoples are used to evaluate things value through price! Even if it's pure sh..t ,if it's expensiv,folks belive it's good. And most of HK produts are very good stuff at very lo price, but it is often badly welcom because of this bad instructions.
great scale at an excellent price perfect for weighting all your little parts

We hunted around China for a while to find a good quality accurate scale. We found many fancy scales but none were very precise. In the end we settled for this retro style unit. What it lacks in cool looks it makes up for in performance. A real bargain!
