HobbyKing 2.4Ghz 4Ch Tx & Rx V2 (Mode 1)(THROTTLE ON THE RIGHT)
Hobbykings T4A 2.4ghz system is an entry level transmitter offering the reliability of 2.4Ghz signal technology and a receiver.
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.
Key Features; 4-channel 2.4GHz transmitter with servo reversing. Easy to use control for basic models. Includes 6-channel receiver Trainer system option. This system does not need a PC to program servo direction.
Included; 1 x 2.4Ghz transmitter 1 x 2.4Ghz Receiver 1 x Bind Plug.
Note: Only HK-T6A receiver is comptible with HK-T4A transmitter.
Only HK-T6Av2 receiver is compatible with the HK-T4Av2 transmitter.
Garth it can but you may or will need a external V-tail. (a Turnigy9XV2 or HK-T6AV2 with cable would be much better). You can get a V-Tail Mixer here! ( TURNIGY V-Tail Mixer. Ultra-small PRODUCT ID: TR-V-tail. Around four dollars)
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
