I intend to use one of these for a quadcopter. I've looked at the attached manual but I still have questions.
Firstly what voltage can/needs to be supplied to the reciever? Will my 3s LiPo be ok?
Does the transmitter have sensible settings by default or will I need to get a programming cable? I am fine doing any reversing or speed scaling in software on my mirco as long as I can get FSO.
The reciever has 3 pins per channel. How is the signal output? PWM on one pin? I would like to read the signal on my mirco.
It is a standard voltage receiver 4.8 to 6v the ESC would provide the correct voltage. You will probably need the programming cable to switch it to heli mode because plane mode will be too jumpy on the throttle. The signal pin, i believe is PPM, but not sure
Can someone please tell me if the toggle switch, SW B should be to the front or back for Normal flight? I have no clue as it came with no paper work at all. I do know in one direction it's for 3D flight and in the other for normal flight but no clue if you throw it to the rear or front for normal?
I had one of this a long time ago. i believe the front position is full control and the back position is soft control, dual rate high to front, dual rate low back control.
also, the switch on the left at the side (not on the same plan as the sticks) is the on/off motor
thanks for the credit!
also, if you have the programming cable, you can edit the % for the two positions of the dual rates. this radio has only one switch for dual rates on the three movement channel (ail/rud/ele)
Hi Michael and thank you for your reply.
But that wasnt my question, I wondered if there is a transmitter to transmitter- cable available?
Perhaps the right word is "Schooling cable" :)
Looking forward to your reply.
Hi Bjon, You can get a cable to attach your transmitter to the computer for configuration and also download software to use it in some flight simulator software, excellent practice. search for
Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx USB Cable - PRODUCT ID: FS-L001
Love this radio! The cd that came with this included the drivers for xp & vista, and the t6config program (to program your transmitter). I installed this on my windows xp (HP laptop) and I kept getting the error "invalid com port" even though I knew it was the right com port from the device manager. I then installed this onto my dad's laptop which is identical to mine and it worked! 4 stars for having this kind of "hit or miss" computer support!

Great price for a 6ch tx/rx combo!
I forgot to order the USB cable however, so that's a bummer but it's my fault ...
To have it shipped together with the set would ofcourse be ideal, just both products with a total price ... that way everyone always has the cable immediately :)
So far so good. Love the range and crystal-clear reception with 2.4mhz power. Manual (found else where in the reviews) could be better, mostly for routing the antennas, if they had to be outside the plane, etc.
4 stars because honestly, there should a paper manual, and the cable should be included.

Excellent radio and especially the money. Great extent simply install the antennas at right angles. Just want to let the lack of manual and software to change the settings. I recommend, especially for beginners of the hobby!
