Hi sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but I can't figure out which file out of all the files in the purple files tab is the right one I should be downloading... I'm trying to program my Hobbyking 2.4Ghz Channel Transmitter I bought and to my understanding I need a usb driver and t6 programming program or something to do mixing and stuff but I can't figure out which file I should be downloading since their are so many? I'm using windows 7 btw. And Could anyone also walk me through how to set it up btw I'm sorta new to this... Thanks!!
ILYA first buy it and the programing cable (Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx USB Cable SKU: FS-L001 ). Also buy some servos and a receiver power supply. Then come back and we can set it up. PLEASE! It is all rather easy. There are a few videos around, either here (under the Orange Video Tab) or on yout ubes.
Adam no pro or cons just 2.4ghz GOOD and 72mhz Bad. With 2.4ghz the receiver Binds to your Transmitter. This means it only work on your Transmitter (unless you rebind it with bind plug) very safe. Fm 72mhz can be hijacked by any other Transmitter on the same band. IE: If you are using 72.015. And some comes with a transmitter set a 72.015 he will take control or you will loose control!
The difference are two, the frequency (72 vs 2415 MHz) that translates into feasible distance. And the modulation, 72 MHz uses FM in a fixed frec and 2.4 GHz uses spread spectrum (it jumps from frec to frec very quick so if one channel is busy, chances are the next one will be free), and information is transmitted redundantly. 72 Mhz pro: you can boost your signal to do FPV, 2.4GHz just won't reach far. And you can use it with telemetry, that usually cames in 2.4GHz. Con: you need to fly at a local club, and take turns with people having the same or nearest channel. Con: if you try to test anything at home you have to check for interference. My first heli had a 72 MHz radio and I could test it in the backyard but not in the front garage, interference got it jumping around. For beginners, I think is better to use 2.4 GHz.
I have recently received my Tx and Rx set and hooked it up to the aftermarket programming software (***********sgr.info/usbradio/screens.htm). Is it normal for the initial throws to be around 65%? or should they go straight to 100%?
I tried to configure it but it didn't work. I set the VR and SW to Null so the VR Works fine but the SW didn't produce a reaction. Can i do something to use it? If i set the SW to ThroCut or DR the SW works.
Alexander when you say the VR work find. You do mean the VR does??? It should move a servo??? So you need to give the SW a Servo just like the VR. If you can not get it PM me in the Members Forum and I will run mine up and write down the steps?
boa tarde .
estou com problema com meu radio ,hobby king de 6 canais
ele nao segura o a configuraç*ao
toda vez que desconecto a bateria ele pede o bind enao consigo bindalo de novo
oque devo fazer antes de comprar outro
eu conecto o bind no receptor no canal da bateria depois conecto a bateria depois com o botã*o do bind apertado ligo o radio mas nã*o binda já* em outro radio ele binda normal
acredito ser o transmissor que esta defeituoso
opior e que eu nem usei o radio
Hi,my radio is nolonger working,the main board inside has shorted and can't turn it on.any idea of where I can buy the board(the one you find inside with the electronic componet)of this transmitter.if it's over,is there any coolest DIY project to do with it??thanks
it is better to buy another radio, cheapest than buy a board and maybe work or not... also DIY i dont think it will be good in this radio,, also it will be cost more than buying new one.. make this one is replacing parts of the new one :) ..
Im trying to set-up my T6a-V2 for full throws using digital radio software (***********sgr.info/usbradio/default.htm) instead of the T6 config but i can never get the throw to go to 100%? Ive tried messing around with the sub-trims, end points and calibrations and its not made things any better. If anything, its made it worse as now on Ch1, it seems to move to 80% when the stick is moved to the right then only 70% on the left?! is there anyway of restoring the set-up to the stock factory setting then starting again? ive looked at the files tab and found nothing that seems to be a stock factory setting file.
Months ago I bought one, but I can't manage to program it. I used several softwares for Mac and PC, but when the computer detected the Hobbyking 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx&Rx V2 the software didn't work* and other way round. Does anybody have a solution for fixing my problem. I only have to reverse two channels.
Xavier so you installed the software but did you install the USB Drivers. Also what cable are you using? It must be one that has a USB to Serial converter built in it. Once the software is loaded you must select the correct serial port. Normally high like Com8 or Com10!
Yes, I installed the USB drivers. I am using the USB to serial converter, but my computer has some sort of problem. When the computer detects the transmitter, he doesn't open the software. And when it opens the Sw, it doesn't detect the Transmitter. I tried in several USB ports, in six different computers (two of them macs)* but i couldn't manage to solve my problem. Do you have an alternative way to try to solve my problem. I would gladly try any option to try to solve it. Many thanks and hopin to hearing from you soon.
So are you using windows XP. It work on that. But it is fiddly on Vista, 7 and 8. So does the SW open to the screen with green sliders and then you have nil movement??? IF so you need to change the com PORT. It will be on 3 or 4 and the new one at 7 to 10 is what you want??? YOU CHANGE IT IN THE SW and you should then get movement! Please let me know?
Xavier please, you do plug your transmitter in (cable and all) to the computer. You do have batteries in your transmitter?? Please you have turned your transmitter on all before you launch you SoftWare! (Plug cable into Tx and USB port then turn the TX on).
Cool windows XP. So are you using the the HobbyKing Cable (Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx USB Cable SKU: FS-L001). If so great. So Xp you can check device manger. Click on the USB device and make sure there is no Unknown device there. So then turn you Tx on and launch Software. Once loaded it will not respond. So change the com port to 7, 8, 9, or higher!!!
1. Install the batteries in the transmitter.
2. Insert the jumper to the Bat port of the receiver.
3. Connect the receiver battery to any one of the channel- ports. Note: at the same time there are two LED’*s flashing meaning the receivers are going into bind status.
4. Press and hold the Bind button on the transmitter, and then switch on the transmitter.
5. Observe the LED on the receiver. When the LED stops flashing, the bind was successful. (This process about 10 seconds)
6. Release the Bind button on the transmitter and remove the jumper and receiver battery.
7. Install a servo and receiver battery and then test.
8. If the tests fail, please repeat steps 1-7.
Notes: The negative pin is on the short side of the receiver (i.e. The signal is toward the center of the receiver).
Lonewolf1 I know it can be a bit hard. HobbyKing does try and make sure they are on most listings under the 'Purple File Tab". One reason they do not have them printed with the item, is it is much easier to update if on file. So if you have a better manual please consider helping and UP LOADING it. Thanks.
i need 4 channels for the four esc's, one channel for auto-stabilization and 2channels for the pan and tilt fpv camera mount.. pls what transmitter and receiver should i buy to perform all this operations??? thanks
Moses, it sounds like you're building a quadcopter. You need a channel for pitch, roll, throttle, and yaw. That's four channels. Plus you want a channel for auto-stabilizing, that makes five channels. And then a channel for pan and a channel for tilt. That makes 7 channels. The Turnigy 9X is what I'm using on my quads and it works great! The Turnigy 9XR would probably be a little overkill for what you are doing but it would be something you won't have to replace with a new model for a very long time.
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!
