I am using this TX on a Ventus Glider. Everything works fine except I cannot seem to find a way to program the Landing Gear servo to work. I have the usb cable and T6Config. CH5 and 6 are available. How to do it ???
You have to config a mix. Use for instance mix1. Source is SW A or B as you like (or you may use one of the knobs, VR A or B). Destination is ch5 or 6 as you like. Down rate and up rate have to be set up so you can get the desired endpoint of servo (start with 0 and 100 and change them to test). Finally, set Switch to ON. That's all. Good luck!
I have a parasail HK and a HK 7X V2 - my trike requires two servos for left and right turns, and both (same command ) to accionate break effect. Could somebody teach how to program it? Felix Garcia from Brazil
Reducteurfou I can explain how to, but first you must have the Cable ( Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx USB Cable SKU: FS-L001) and down load and install the Program and Driver for it. The Software and Driver can be downloaded from the Purple File Tab above. Now to reverse Channel 2 is easy. Once you you run the Software and look around you will see HOW? (BUT first save the Standard Setup). Save it to your PC. Tell me when you have that done!
i am confuse about the purchse start. what i want i am going to make HK 250 GT... but first i want to purchase the machines. and remote. can any one tell me i want to buy this, Reciever also included in this purchase. and is that any connections related to motor and Turnigy ? please if anyone explain me in to the point that would be great so i can start buying.
Gwiza yes you can. You need to get a Flight Controller Board (FCB) as well. In fact the FCB does most of the work. The FCB has gyros on it which help level the the QUAD. Have a look at Multi-Rotors & Parts > Flight Controllers, please.
COME ON PEOPLE, give me the sooo desired answer....how to set up the channels parameters with the T6 Software so that i can use this radio with tricopter having KK2 Board. IT should be possible i know...but sofar nobody wants to tell me.....
I don't have a multicopter, but from what I've seen, you need to program it as a plane. ch1 aileron, ch2 elevator, ch3 thrust, ch4 rudder. You can map ch5 and 6 to the knobs or switches if your board supports extra channels for other functions like gyro gain. The rest of the programming has to be done on the board.
HELLO ALL, i am strugling to configure the radio for my tricopter. I do not know what parameters to give for the different channels in the configurations software. I tried some but each motor starts to spin at different trottle level. I think this is because of wrong channels set up or maybe not calibrated ESCs.. Can someone help me with info how to configure the radio with the T6 software. My radio is acctually flysky ctb6 but i do not see any difference between em . MANY many THANKS
Nukii what Flight Controller Board (FCB) are you using? The work is done by your FCB. So please come over to the Members Forum Blue tab at top of Page). In there you can open a topic or join one and get help! You need to setup you ese's. You do have a FCB?
i am using kk2 board and i have conntected evrything as shown in some nice youtube videos for buiding tricopter. my ESCs are of cource connected to the KK2 board and not directly into the receiver.. i tested yesterday with the aero setup on the radio but again when i give little throttle motor 1 starts after increasing throttle with 15 percent Motor 2 starts and again throtle increase Motor 3 springs. Maybe my ESC are not calibrated?? I am using Turnigy Plush 30A ESCs.. I do not know what to do...
Nukii let me know how you go. The best part is you do not have all that power that can short and burn. If you like the idea we could write it up in the Tip and Ideas area HobbyKing has. It would be nice to do with someone else. I sometime have trouble explaining my ideas! (If we come up with a new and good idea HK does pay for it)
Hi, i believe that finally i managed to answer all the questions i had. my concern mostly was how to power the receiver (and servos), using extra battery or not. but since the ESC provides a BEC of 5V,1amp i guess i connect it to any of the assigned channels and that's it (no need of a battery, just leave the Battery socket free). Anyhow, the thing is i am a bit confused. i cant choose which one to get mode 1 or mode 2. from your experience which one do you believe is ''better' concerning to applications and easy to you? wish i had an option to use both but this is not an option to buy 2 transmitter haha :)
Chris there is a 5v ubec built into your ESC yes. You plug the ESC onto the receiver, to control the motor. The same connection brings 5V power from the ESC/uBec to the receiver. From there the receiver controls the servo and powers them! You can do away with the BEC in the ESC by cut one of the 3 wires! The middle on. Normally the red one.
if a power the receiver with a different battery or built a voltage regulator circuit and have a voltage drop at 6.5Volts for the receiver and the servos i think it will work right?
can i completely eliminate the use of BEC mode so the ESC will have a range up to 12volt or even higher since i think of plugging in a second battery and get it up to 24volts.????
Back in the day we had fuel engines. We powered our receivers and therefore our servo buy 4 or 5 AA batteries. (A receiver battery pack) BEC stands for Battery Eliminator Circuit. u = Ultimate. I hope this helps.
I think off proceeding my order and getting the 6 channel, but i still have questions concerning to the configuration with the rest of the equipment.
I am using a brushed motor (runs at 12 volt. Drawing 4 Amps) and a 12 Volt- 7.2 Amp Lead-Acid battery to drive it. I am also going to purchase the following products. TGY-30A (ESC), MG 946R and HK5010 (servos), M-Fswitch (switch), and the 371000010 led lights.
My questions are:
1st have i chosen the right ESC for my motor/battery?
2nd the motor will be powered through the ESC at 12Volts and only the command of it will be controlled via its connection (through ESC) from the receiver. Right?
3rd Servos operate at 5 to 7 volts. The Receiver has an extra cable that is powered up right? Can i use that 12 volt battery to power it up? Can receiver regulate the voltage on each channel so i have 5-7 volts to operate the servos and minimize or use the appropriate for the ESC?
Chris like wow! So I hope this is a car? The max voltage for the receiver is 6.5v. This receiver is not that advance, the you can not control different volts to different servo. Sorry. You do not tell us what motor? So we need to chat further. Please let us chat at the members forum (Blue tab at top of page). If you make a topic there (or I can make one for you if you ask) we can copy all this over to it. There are a lot of members there whom can help!
Chris I like your Turnigy 30A BRUSHED ESC but it has a BEC Mode: 5v/1A. So 5v is the max that will go from you receiver to your servos. Also it is for a BRUSHED motor so you must be using a brushed motor. So what is it a 540 or 380? But I do not think this has a reverse. So if for a car maybe not the ESC for you. I like the break function can be turn on/off by the jumper. So what are you building PLEASE
Jan so what are you trying to setup. To change anything you need the programing cable. So you are running T6 so you must have the cable. When you move the Levers do the green bar move. If not you either, do not have it setup correct or you have not select the correct coms port? So what do you need to change PLEASE!
thank you Rexy03 for your support. i guess if i go for the 4channel is just the same providing the same features. only the number of channels is less, Right?
i might bother you soon, proving the list of equipment just to verify me that i have taken the right choice, concerning to compatibility or in case i miss a component.
thank you again.
I am building an RC boat and i have a few questions concerning to the reliability of this receiver/transmitter system.
1st. i guess i can use it for my design and i can make use of all channels for several functions i want to install on my design(boat. Can i???
2nd. What is the maximum distance you believe i can achieve? since i will run it at open sea i want to have a range of control at around 500 meters to 800meters. is it possible to achieve this using this system , since high frequency signals are reflecting when used at sea regions. ???
3rd. What is the difference with that one (HobbyKing HK6S 2.4Ghz FHSS 6Ch Tx & Rx (Mode 1))????? is it better and why???
4th. Should i have to concern with the compatibility with the other electronic components i use, such as speed controller, servo..etc?
1st. yes you can use up to 6 channels with this transmitter.... 2nd. 800m would be getting close to the limit of range at sea for this radio.... 3rd. i dont believe HK6S 2.4Ghz FHSS 6Ch is any better or worse but this one has much more scope as far as configuring each channel via t6config software and the usb programing cable on your computer.... 4th. you can use any esc and servos with this set
I dont think there is a suitable cable on hobbyking and I believe you need to mod the transmitters to enable the function, but have a look at this instead ( Wireless Buddy Box System 4CH (Dual RX Controller) ) and also google search for a video called ( Buddy Box system for Instructor Beginner training from Hobbyking ) if you have room in your plane this is a good idea but you would need a 6ch set as the master
Hi guys. I'm after some guidance on the actual range of HK Tx/Rx. Firstly, I work for a school and have several HK aircraft. We are very happy with them all, however the Bixler 1.0 we have flew beyond it's range today and soft landed in a thicket of trees. (I'm getting it down tomorrow - hopefully LOL). The Bix lost signal at about 300 metres straight line (200ish by ground). Furthermore, another teacher was with me today whom lost his Bixler 1.1 only a week or two ago under the exact circumstances (He had it for a week and lost it!). Our club trainer on the other hand has a 4 channel HK Tx/Rx and seems to be fine out to 500 metres (ish). Any info would be very helpful.
Thanks for your reply. Batteries were okay, I'll have a look at the antennae tomorrow when I get it back. Both plane were set up exactly the same... Is it worth me maybe running the antennae right to the tail of the fuselage perhaps?
well if you have the standard receiver with this radio it only has a short antennae so it wont make it to the tail, the main thing is to keep it as far away as possible from the esc, ie dont have them side by side, i believe a longer antennae can be fitted to this receiver but I dont think it is necessary
Thanks Rexy03. Turns out it may have been the Tx batteries after all. Both 'lost' aircraft had the same rechargeable AAs - that belong to the teacher who lost his Bix 1.1. I put them on our battery tester today and it seems one is not holding full charge. I'm not a fan of rechargeable AAs (I've had problems with them using photography equipment in the past). Evidently I put standard AAs in all our other aircraft and have had no Tx issues. I'll make sure the Rx is as far from the ESC before the bix's next flight anyway to rule that out as well.
Thanks a lot for your help!
yes, for sure but for quad i ll choose better tx http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem .asp?idproduct=31544&aff=548226 or http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem .asp?idproduct=28494&aff=548226
Yasiru sure can. You need to adjust the end points to get a flight board to arm. Have a look in the members forum (Blue tab at top of page). We talk about how to arm. So yes it is fine for Quad Copter.
thanx coooruuu it so happens that i actually picked out the orange t-six,ordered all the silicone(thats what she said!)and also a receiver r620 with failsafe but i'm waiting for the damn system prompt to pop up and give me a couple dollar discount,,,,,,,,,,,,,,thanx for being the back-up!!
hi, i have a problem. i was calibrating this transmitter, but 1 and 2 channel is at max 50% in TSconfig diagram, and i can't make it to 100% or 110%. i was searching through net, but can't find any guide to solve this problem. I'm pretty new one in rc modeling so maybe i done something wrong, but dunno what. please can you help me ? thanks a lot
Now it worked fine for 20 mins? This is that hard part. If it was DOA I would be easier to understand. Are you still getting a red light on the receiver when you turn it on! (THAT was when it was bound). DC power was a nice touch. So what colour is the led on the Tx? Also do you have a programing cable?
it snot the receiver end... its the transmitter TX that wont turn on properly.... it just comes up with a red light... however on the rx end i have the AXN floater with the 4 channels plugged in correctly... tried today with a turnigy remote and it worked.
Likas so you said you tried 3 sets of NEW batteries in your HK transmitter (Tx). Do you have a volt meter?? I sounds like a battery problem. So if we can meter the batteries or try them in the Turnigy9XV2.
I had this remote working for about 20 minutes, turned it off and then back on, with the same batteries in it and it stopped working..... the LEd light is a faint red and as i move the levers it goes a bit brighter and then back to faint.... i have tried binding it again, tried 3 sets of new batteries and nothing works, any suggestions???
Thanks Again for the help ! I ordered everything from the US warehouse, except the cable. Shipping on the cable was only $3.00, so I can live with that.
I'm sure I'll have more questions when everything arrives.........
104 thumbs up!
Mode 3, if that is elevator and ailerons on the one stick then yes software programable.

I have one of these under a different badge and 3 extra receivers in planes to match. Excellent value basic 2.4G set, decent feel, 8xAA. Only store one model memory at a time on board, back to PC to swap models. I just set all my planes to the same config (delta mix). 10plus hours fly time to 200Meters, nil glitches, cool. On my software version: ACRO or Heli modes, Dual rates, no expo, 3 mixes (your selection), end stop, trim. Well worth it.

A VERY nice product at a great price ( if you can bundle it with other things..) but Oh!.. no manual and no application software? And no mention of either or how to get it?? Not like you blokes to be so remiss.. Anyway..1 star off for being slack. For those wanting the manual ( mentioned under the Mode 2 reviews) or the t6 config.exe file ( see top left corner of screen shot of setup page above) you can get links and some tips here... hobbycit
mode 2 de stok bulunmadigi icin mode 1 aldim mode 2 ye sorunsuz cevrilip calisiyor, kontrol yazilimi biraz kotu ama radyo genel olarak iyi, fiyat gayet uygun

Continued: The programing cable doesn't double as a sim cable. I would love a trainer cable but don't know that the software has been upgraded to utilise Switchs A or B for trainer (my software only allows switches selectable as "throttle cut" or "Dual rates" in ACRO (plane) mode).
This radio still has a lot to offer, decent quality, reliable operation and AWSOME VALUE for a budget 2.4G system.
