Cheap 2.4G HK T6 Tx'r overview & Review

I'm using a basic 2.4G Tx'r (US$32 + S&H from HK). Mostly because of the cheap Rx's available for it at <US$13 + S&H. This allows me to have a lot of basic planes for different conditions, applications and various atates of repair. As they get battered they get an even harder time low level etc, untill it's all over.
The only time I have ever had a glitch is when I put some lead balast on one of my gliders over where the antennas where installed, I try and set the antennas away from the CG points now where I may want to add balast.
Otherwise, a dozen operational planes on this Tx'r and no probs, recommended budget 2.4G rig. I recently got another one so I could configre for a 3D flyer setup.

The disadvantage of this model is memory loads have to be back at the PC. Not a real issue for me as I have set all my planes up the same, which does have some limmitations, as I would like to change ratios for elevator/aileron throw/mix for some planes, but I get buy fine. I even setup a airbrake on one plane using one of the Tx analouge knobs.

HK now have gone to V2 of this Tx'r, slightly cheaper, but Rx'rs are single antenna only (maybe range issues, it now has Freq hoping so hopefully that will compensate). The HK X9 now has Tx module built in and $9 2.4G 8chl Rx's, also compatable with the V2 T6 Rx's, reviews so far look good, may go this way next.

Some excellent links for the Tx'r.

Haven't done a lot of looking into HK lately, looking at those systems, just wowed, and am so much thanking myself for waiting on the 2.4 systems to get better in costs before making the plunge. I may be shopping there again for my next run of planes, going to be selling the kits I do, complete with new gear like this for those new to it all that don't want to wait or deal with China. When the weather gets normalized here, I suspect will have a ton of locals turned onto this hobby, and having the extra set's of gear, plane kits and all ready to go will make it a snap for them and save on their pocket books in the process compared to being limited to only the expensive lhs.

Hi Mates. Not sure if this thread can help but I'll give it a go.I'm mounting my RX in a Dirty Birdy. I notice that what seems to be an extended antenna for it. My question is, where do I mount the 2nd part of the antenna? Right now I'm running antenna wire for the extended part through the top of my plane where a fuel hose used to be. (Yes I've converted it to an electric) The little part with the wire coming out of it is installed next to the RX. Is this ok so long as the antennas point in different directions?Thanks a lot for your help with this. Russ
