How should I setup the throttle using the T6config program for a X-Quad. If I use end range settings 100% 100% then I have to adjust the sub trim to -120% to get the program centered on the screen at mid stick. If I use 100% 0% with sub trim at zero, then the 1st third of the throttle stick range does nothing?
The other issue I have is arming a KK black control board. No combination of throttle and other controls work. I find I have to use throttle-cutoff on swB to completely kill the throttle to arm the board.
Honestly, if you want to config anything harder than reversing stick direction, don't use T6Config. Buy DigitalRadio instead ($2). Much easier to use, very intuitive.
All my transmitters needed their range settings modified to /- 120% AND some dremel mods to get maximum range. This probably will also solve your arming issue - it appears as though your throttle is not going "down" enough to have the board arm itself. Throttle cutoff automatically pulls throttle to -100% or completely down.
Will probably work, although I recommend some dremel mods to the gymbals to achieve maximum stick travel.
Range: Reportedly over 1KM, I never went further than 200M because at that distance I could not follow my boat anymore.
You should always do a range check before taking off as range can and will vary depending on your environment.
I have no idea as I only have this type of transmitter, as they are dirt cheap and easy to mod to my liking. Although I fancy the Turnigy 9X transmitter, which also works with the RX'es from the HK-T6A. The Turnigy 9X seems to be better, but once again I cannot confirm for you.
What I do is essentially stretching up the gymbal travel using a dremel. Horizontal travel is just shaving off a bit to the sides wherever the stick hits the plastic, for the vertical travel you need to open up the case and remove a bit from the endpoints. That way you get more travel from the sticks, and then if you modify the channel endpoints to 120% you get maximum channel range. This will probably resolve your arming issue.
No clue if this TX works with a tricopter, because I only do boats. I would say so, though, as helis and quadcopters are no issue either.
how would it work in a Bixler 2? for price can't be beaten (I'm a newbie in rc planes and all my 4 helicopters are Walkera with their own walkera Tx and i d'n t know if the walkera tx and rx will work on this plane)
This is fine with Plane (if you get it please buy the Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx USB Cable SKU: FS-L001 it does not come with it). Also most of the WALKERA RECEIVER are all in one. (ie: built in gyro and / or speed controller). Sorry you are right they will not work so much!
Hi out there, I bought this to use on my x550 quadcopter. Programming is not to difficult (aside from the small idiosynchrosy's) however my quad seems to drift a lot even in no wind conditions and the throttle is difficult to get it to hover. I thought I read once to set it to acro (plane) and not heli, is this correct?. I noticed in plane settings you cannot set the throttle curve but in heli you can. Any advice on my Prob.?, (please).
Thanks for the confirmation, maybe when I am a bit farther into my flying "learning curve" I'll get braver and look into heli setup (is it actually possible?), I have no experience with Heli's, just planes and cars (well, about a total of 40 min. of quad flying also, so far, but that's been mainly bouncing it off the ground (he,he,)). Thanks again for the response.
Cool my Quad Project is getting there too. Have you done the gyro test. It is called a DIP test. It makes sure the right motor is responding to the right gyro??? If not search it out at You Tubes Please!
I am new to r/c and i need to purchase an inexpensive system to control a steam launch boat. I would like to use a micro servo to control the rudder. Then i believe i also need a battery holder and a switch to mount in the boat. Not sure what mode 2 means. I guess i have alot of questions. Any help would be appreciated.
RHB72 a Steam Launch cool. Please consider the Turnigy9XV2. It is twice the price but it can be set in its own menu and can store up to 8 models. The thing is you will find other uses for the extra channels too. Rexy03 is correct too. For your micro servos MMMM. You can buy 4g servo but if you go smaller you will need to change there plugs. Also consider coming to the Members From (Blue tab at top of Page). Start a topic there and we all will help!
GR yes that is not right. Are you new or have been around for a while. IF NEW please contact CS. If you can use a screw driver then: I think something is stuck in one of your springer, like a wire. I do not think it is a big ISSUE at all. Levers should be centered! Except for the throttle. It stays where you leave it!
has anyone noticed that even if the channels are set to 100 and subtrim to 0, the endpoind of each channel is different. is it something normal, has to be this way or my transmitter not functioning properly? the only way to adjust it is i guess by changing the values.
This is pretty normal for these cheap TX'es, I am afraid. You'll have to tinker a bit to get maximum travel from it:
I modified all my TX... Took a dremel and modified the endpoints for the gymbals (vertical movement) and the slots the gymbals move in (horizontal movement) and then adjusted the percentages of stick throw using DigitalRadio, to get travel as close as possible to 100% either way, and if that was not possible at least make it as even as possible.
I agree that it is something they could have incorporated in the design, but being so cheap I just consider it a result of being cheap. And with a dremel it is a pretty easy mod, so I just live with it.
By the way, there are some other nice mods you can do to this transmitter, like signal reversing switches like they are on the 4ch TX... Another result of their low cost: If you mess up one by doing mods, you can just buy another one without directly breaking your bank *-)
If you ever need a better TX, go for the Turnigy 9X V2 as the protocols are the same as this radio, so you can keep using your RX'es *-)
Note that the 9XR probably won't as you need a separate TX module and I doubt if there is a legacy module for it.
why on default settings channel 1 has longer 'range' than channel 2? and channel 4 goes more to the right than to the left? might silly . but shouldnt have the same range all channels to all directions?
Is this what t6cfg is showing you? It doesnt really make sense to me either, maybe someone else can shed some better light. on the subject, but I think its calibration problems of t6cfg, I certainly havent noticed any of that in flight, Jst on t6cfg...
If you really want to tinker around with the config of these transmitters, consider DigitalRadio. License costs only $2 but this software is so much better in so many ways than T6Config I really can't understand people are still messing around with T6Config.
David I do not think that this has that feature! You can make a SLAVE (I think) but you cannot make it a MASTER. I recommend you put a buddy box in your plane. This works "Wireless Buddy Box System 4CH (Dual RX Controller) (SKU: DUAL-RX4-01)". There is also Wireless Buddy Box System 8CH (Dual RX Controller) (SKU: A-DualREC) but I have not tried that with a 6 channel Transmitter.
I understand out of the box this doesn't support MASTER, but it does support being SLAVE, so I am intending on moding the MASTER one to support it (instructions in files tab) and so now i'm looking for a cable to go between them. But thankyou for that link to the BuddyBox thing, I'll think about that and do some more research on them.
it is already that..
just you want to do is that open the T6config and choose what you want for the switches.(you can see the switch program in the bottom of the software)..
i hope this help you..
My thoughts that I'm going to check is to mix the variometers and channels 5&6 in such a way that when the switch is switched on it activates the chanells and when off the chanels are off... ill have o try it out tho.
Btw, what lights are you using?
i think i sorted it out. i found a video that explains how its works. now i have to figure out why channels do not go all the way even if trim is set to 0 and end point is set to 100.
Christos great. A video paints a 10000000 words. I could of run you through it but a Video is much easier. (I would have take you to the Members Forum). So can you post the Video in the Orange Video Tab above so other can get help FAST. Good Flying.
David now when you loose signal. So that could happen when you: 1: Tx Dies 2: Tx Batteries Fail. 3: Fly out of range. But the Model must be up and running! IE: if you crash it will not turn a Motor or Engine OFF.
you need this cable "Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx USB Cable SKU: FS-L001 " to connect transmitter to computer, the driver for the cable and T6congfig software is under the purple files tab on the product page for the cable
he means the driver for the usb cable. im not sure but the chipset could be PL-2303 but im not sure of that. if you have plugged it in and it shows up in the device manager in windows you need the COM-port of it (also shown in devicemgr) then you choose that COM-Port in t6 config and then it should work
Eward so how are you trying to get ti to work if you have not downloaded the Software or Drivers YET? You go to the Purple File Tab find the file you want and click on it. It should ask if you want to down load. Now to install the drivers on Vista you need to be in Admin Mode. I think it is hold the F8 key at boot (I think). BUT you do nedd to down load first!!
Why don't they have this item in the DE-warehouse? If I will buy this item I must pay taxes at 25% plus 25$ extra because it's outside EU. That means I will spend 56$ plus shipping on a 25$ transmitter. Please get some transmitters at your European warehouses.
Edward may I ask what window you are using. When you plug the USB to Serial cable, in, does the computer recognize the USB Converter. You need the cable drivers and T6 software. If you have no coms ports on your laptop then com3: is ok but if you have coms port on your laptop, then you should also get Com9: or Com10: or Com11:. Please let me know how you go!
Thanks for your replies, but as a newbie I really don't care if it's mode 1 or 2. My concern is that the HK-T6A V2 is advertised as as a mode 2 only, and that the the one I received is defective. But if it is a genuine mode 1 then no worries.
unlikely it is defective, you either got mode 1 or mode 2, if you got it off the Australia page it only shows mode 1 available which is what you would have received from the Australian warehouse, if you want mode 2 you have to buy it from the Global page.
Tony if you Throttle is on the right then you did not buy or get a Mode 2 but a Mode 1. Please contact CS and check your order. If you cannot get any help, there are videos around showing how to change modes. I hope this helps!
Shoham it does not come with batteries. You need to supply 8 x AA. You can us One Use or rechargeables. Also you can buy a Lipo that fits in the bay and for that you will need a lipo charger. I like to charge any batteries out of the Transmitter for safety! HobbyKing sells all of the batteries. Look under "Batteries & Accessories > Rx/Tx Batteries ".
I do not think you can as you cannot buy the module for the Turnigy 9x which is needed to match the signal from this transmitter.
Depending what radio signal format you are going to use Futaba, Spektrum, JR, you can get an orange Module and buy the cheap Orange Transmitter
I agree with Hussain, either another 9xr or a turnigy 9x with no module. you will not need a module for the student to work in trainer mode as it is not sending the signal to the Rx from that unit ... only the master unit will transmit.
Hello 'on the 6 channel mode 2 Tx and Tx can we combine the aileron and elevator of a wing delta.merci in advance. Cordially raymond Bonjour' sur le mode 2 6 canaux TR et TX peut-on mixer les ailerons et la profondeur d'une aile delta.merci d'avance.cordialement raymond
Athos yes it can do delta mixing / V tail. It is all done on a Pc (Desk top or Lap top) using Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx USB Cable (SKU: FS-L001 which you must buy separately). Also you need drivers and a program which can be downloaded from the "Purple File Tab" above.
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!
