Hi Cedric - short answer: buy a better transmitter. This one only outputs the PPM signal but does not accept inputs from another transmitter. You can use this as a slave and connect it to a transmitter that supports master mode (not this one). You will have to make up your own cable for this too. And last ly you cannot turn off the transmitter module which means that your slave is still transmitting. Not great at all.
bought this for a quadcopter, unfortunately I do not have the programming cable as yet. My question is this, right out of the box it seems the throttle stick and the throttle trim are both bound together. Is this common with this transmitter? I am using a kk multicopter control board v5.5, could this be an issue with the flight card or do I simply have to program the transmitter?
The throttle stick and throttle trim are bound together - this is exactly what it should do. The trim buttons allow you to slightly move the center location of each stick but this is done on the transmitter side and there is only one throttle channel transmitted over the air. The trim settings are not sent over the air.
I might completely misunderstand your question though???
What i mean is, if i slide the trim up my motors will start. sliding it back down motors will stop. I can only calibrate my esc's by sliding the trim all the way up then all the way back down when the esc's does their beeping music. I can actually use the trim slider as my throttle. Is this normal on these transmitters? The throttle stick seems to work okay as I can use it normally...
When you said 'I can only calibrate my esc's by sliding the trim all the way up', do you mean that you have to move both, the trim and the stick, all the way up to enter ESC programming mode, i.e. leaving trim in the center position and stick full up does not get you into ESC programming mode? Did you try to do just a throttle calibration before trying to enter programming mode (I'm not sure if that would make a difference but it's worth a try)?
Yes, the price includes the usual taxes (GST). Depending on your country and the value of the order you might have to pay additional import taxes. These are paid to customs when the parcel enters your country, not to Hobbyking.
You need the programming cable and the software. Search for product ID FS-L001 to find the cable. The software can be found in the files tab.
If you have enough space in your model you can flip the servo arm to the other side - that effectively reverses the servo too.
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!
