HobbyKing - Turnigy TGY-i6 AFHDS Transmitter and 6CH Receiver

The Turnigy TGY-i6 is a great entry level 6-channel telemetry 2.4ghz computer transmitter that uses solid and reliable Automatic Frequency Hopping Digital System (AFHDS) spread spectrum technology. The Turnigy TGY-i6 has both a nice quality look and feel, while the programming is simple to use. The TGY-i6 also has an impressive list of features and includes a TGY-iA6 6-channel receiver. Suitable for both model Heli and Airplane, the Turnigy TGY-i6 is a superb budget computer radio for both new pilots and experienced pilots alike!

The ultra slim case design ergonomically fits your hands leading to less hand fatigue especially during long flights. Digital trims, backlit LCD screen, and simple programming give the TGY-i6 a modern feel with all the features you want. With a low profile antenna, the TGY-i6 is easy to store and no worries about breaking it. Adjustable length sticks, and a loop for attaching a neck strap round out the list of comfort features this radio offers. For changing flight modes or multiple flap position options, the TGY-i6 has a 3-position switch, as well as two adjustable knobs.

Expand the capabilities of your models or just know what is going on with the optional telemetry receivers and variety of sensors. Normally you would have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a transmitter with this capability. Not so with the availability of the TGY-i6.

For the price, the features the TGY-i6 offers make this one of the best radios available dollar for dollar.

Features:
• Entry level 6 channel 2.4ghz radio with telemetry capability
• Dual Rate/Trims/Gear/Flap/Gyro Gain Adjust/Flight Mode/Throttle Hold/Hover Pitch Switches
• Easy to use Programming & Navigation Buttons
• Supports Heli/Standard Wing/Elevon/V-Tail
• 20 Model Memory
• 8 Character Model Name
• Trainer and charging ports
• Backlit LCD Screen displays real time transmitter and receiver voltage
• 4 Stick Mode Selectable
• Optional telemetry receivers and sensors available separately

I will get one of these. I hear it will work with the previous FLYSKY receivers. I love my FS-TH9X, but the FS-TX9X is overkill for some of my 2 servo planes. I might have to try telemetry!

What makes you think that? Under the Basic Functions list for the radio in the link above it says 'Timer".

I've got one of these, few comments:
- it's small, thin and light, much smaller the 9x.
- software is very basic, can't find the timer.
- sticks are small and short though feel ok.
- channels 5 and 6 can be assigned to the switches or pot or mixed with other channels.
- there is actually two tx aerials, one sticks on the plastic antenna cover and the other is at 90deg angle inside the handle.
- overall a bit toyish due to size but still rather solid feel when you keep it in hand.
- telemetry shows rx voltage and error rate as percentage (0% means no errors)

Hi - could you briefly explain how you set up your 4 models - do you need to set up model name/number/type in Tx before you bind the relevant Rx?

I dont think so, but maybe it is like that.
but why not do that first.
You have to do it anyway

So start with that.

and remember to hold cancel Down to store the Things you do.

Then pick the wrench and screewdriver meny and set the Things you whant there. and remember to press the cancel to store after any change.

To bind, put the bind plug in bind/batt and the batt in any other slot and then it shoud blink.
Press the bind range test on the rx and switch on the rx.
Then the blink will stop and go to steady lights.

take out the binding plug and you are ready

Good luck

Soren

Just take out the rx on your first plane and bind it Again to your second plane in the tx , and set it up as you like.

You dont need a rx for all your planes.
