Hi All, Carried over from 'Tank Steering' 😉
Turns out they are all exactly the same beast! Badge Engineering - Branding!
Several German forums also gave the same links to various github pages for mods to any of these sets - all absolutely identical! Only the prices are not! Hobbyking is ALWAYS almost half of any of the other sources prices!
When I'm happy with the 6Ch performance, and have some models stored, will investigate the 10Ch mod.
Cheers Doug 😎

Most of the companies you have mentioned tend to rebadge third party suppliers hardware, and put their own firmware on it. Flysky and Turnigy normally won't work together, but, if you install Turnigy with Turnigy, or Flysky with Flysky, it will work. I have successfully "updated" Turnigy receivers with Flysky firmware updates to enable me to use them with my Flysky Transmitter. My next job is to hack my Flysky GT3-B to increase to 8 channels and ppm transmission, so I can install an 8 channel receiver on my 46" fire tender (sound, directional working fire monitors, etc). Hopefully doing it sometime next week. Progress reports as(or if) I make any 😨 Best wishes, Dave W 😊

But don't forget the CE certification! 😉
Thanks for the info folks, esp. re firmware, I'm learning / catching up fast👍
Think I'll leave mine at 6Ch 'til I really really need more acc. to the maxim
If it ain't broke don't fix it 😉
Don't want to risk incompatible updates 🤔
Cheers Doug

I also have a Taranis, which I use for my quads, and a Turnigy i10 which I usr for just one quad, and I should really put that quad on the Taranis, then use the i10 for all the boating stuff. One of these days I'll get myself sorted out 😂 Have fun out there guys 😀 Dave W

Hi Rolfman
Glad to hear we have another Taranis user. I am gradually switching all my models to the Taranis but I have a Futaba 6ex which I use with several models and it works ok so maybe not those. Used to use Planet and for most simple boats they work well but I am replacing with Taranis following the demise of Planet supplies.
I do believe Turnigy and FlySky may use the same internal processors as the software seems to run on both sets, but not as you say with each other. The good news is the software is open source so free to download, and there are many working on improvements and additions just like the Taranis. For most users I suspect the 6 or 8 channels available as standard will meet all their requirements, whilst the more adventurous can reprogram. As a lifelong Trekkie fan I am always ready to boldly go!

Doug are you suggesting we should rely on the CE markings? Unless you know who manufactured the article its just a sticker that the Chinese and others have been copying and attaching to their products for years.
Bit like statistics really!
Dave

Hi Dave, Ho ho! Not at all 😉
That was in joking reference to Canabus who asked if you guys were going into manufacturing / branding😁
Cheers Doug 😎
