Does this remote have v-tail mixing built in as an option?
If not, do you know of a simple/cheap 4-6 channel remote that does?
Is the programming cable a standard USB micro/mini or is it a specialty USB cable?
If yes, HK searchable model number please. Thanks
Yes, the transmitter can be configured for v-tail. You need the software (see files section) and the programming cable (search for FS-L001). However, as others have expressed below, you will have much more fun with a better transmitter - you get what you pay for.
Do this transmitter and receiver combine with a specific kind of flight controller, because i am planning to use a CC3D flight controller and spotted that this transmitter an receiver are relatively cheap
My advice is don't get this radio as a first radio, it's good, but it's a nightmare to set up with the PC software and will need tuning before you can use it to it's potential. I had one of these (and still do) but I swapped to a $60 9X and now run my 4 models off it. The extra $35 is definitely worth it. you can still use the 6 channel Rxs with the new radio which is cool, and for applications where you don't need more channels, I'd use them (they're cheaper than the 8 channel 9x Rxs).
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!
