Google for "github ar-t6". This seems to be an attempt to create an open-source firmware for this transmitter. I doubt that the actual firmware is available. I have not tried this and I can only guess that this is about the same transmitter but the fact that it is for a STM controller is a strong indication. Seems you can flash it through the trainer port, no protection. Good luck.
Pretty much every RC transmitter these days runs on the 2.4GHz band using frequency hopping (some long range stuff uses lower frequencies). Frequency hopping means that it only transmits very short bursts on one frequency before switching to the next one. This means that it can cope reasonably well with interferers on a single frequency (wifi). However, the receiver input filters must be wide enough to let through the entire band - if you have a 200mW Wifi adapter next to the receiver, it will saturate the input filters and you will have a much reduced range.
Some of your options: use a 5.4GHz Wifi adapter and put it as far away from the receiver as possible,
Use a 433MHz long range transmitter rather than this one.
Reduce the output power of the Wifi transmitter.
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!
