Thank you very much! I got it working at thr end. The only question I've more, that you maybe know the answer of, is why I can't reply to other peoples "comments"? When I press the reply button on for examle your answer, it asks me to log in, email and password, even if I'm alredy logged in. And when I type my email and password and then click login, the screen just like reloads, no place to put the text. It should come up a little box where I can write, I think, but it don't! I don't know if it's something about that I have only 1 point, but how can I earn more if I can't reply to other people and try to help them? Seems very weird for me.
Sounds weird, I have no problems to reply any post when I'm already logged. The steps I do: 1) LOGIN at HobbyKing -> see my account. 2) SEARCH this item at the 'search' box on top. 3) View some questions and press the REPLY button. 4)SUBMIT my reply. I don't think that have 1 point be a problem. Wish this helps!
I am new to this hobby, and are going to put this on my first quad with the Hobbyking i86 Multi-Rotor Control Board. But my question is, how do I know what channel on this transmitter is going to what channel on the i86 board? Is it simply channel 1 to channel 1 etc? Another question is, what way am I going to plug the contacts in it? What I have heard, the reciver will blow up if I plug them in the wrong way.
I would be very very happy if someone could answer my questions.
Hello Patrik, if you see the seccion FILES of the Hobbyking i86, you can download the user manual* there's a image that shows you how to connect the wires from your receiver showing what pins are for what use (singal, power and ground). Also you may need some wires (like product ID: 015000011) to connect the receiver to the board. Usually, in the receivers that I used, chanel 1 goes with elevator, channel 2 with ailerons, channel 3 with throttle and 4th with rudder. Even so, you should test, with a servo connected to the receiver trying all the channels, which movement of your stick transmitter matches with receiver channel and therefore the movement of the servo.
Servo's wires used to have 3 differentiated colors: white, red, black OR yellow, red, brown. White/Yellow is used to the signal, Red for the power (5v, positive) and Black/Brown for the ground (negative). At this receiver, the pins have a good symbols that helps you to connect it properly. If you find other receiver that doesn't have this symbols and only have the number of the channel, you should connect the wire so that the signal's pin is the most close to the number.
I wish this will helps you and don't be afraid to ask!
i had a problem in the beginning to with this article. my problem was that i had conected some of the cables 180 degrees wrong.
i took a battery and connected it to the receiver and the transmitter to the receiver. after that i took a servo and tried 1 after 1. i hope it will help you. having fun is most important.
As with ANY receiver on the market, it is either driven by the gas channel (by means of a BEC) or directly (not more than 6V) at any of the 4 channels. 1S Lipo (3.7V) is enough for this receiver (plus 2 HXT500 servos), it doesn't need the 4.8V in the description.
You can connect battery to any of 4 connector pins. But remember to let epty chanels that you need for controling aircraft ( elevator, ruder, thrust). If you need 4th chanel V cable may help... but this think with V cable i only hear from my friend... i dont try it on my own yet.
I love these receiver as they are very stable and long range. I am using it with my Optic 6 Tx without any issues. As for Crystal I have been using the GWS 35MHz Single Conv with out any lost of range. I have mount it on a Glider and most of my Foam delta wing plane and should be able to get about 800plus meters.

5 thumbs up!
Excellent price, good range and small size - this is exactly what I need !! Thanks to HC i can fly indoor, work perfect. For this receiver you have to use small crystals eg. GWS 35MHz Single Conv, Corona 35MHz Single Conv or Pelikan 35MHz Single Conv. Range check on the ground, distance : 500mplus, in the air probably 800m.
