I need to get a new radio that I can potentially use on a variety of boats. I have been looking at this: Turnigy TGY-i6 AFHDS Transmitter and 6CH Receiver (Mode 2) from Hobby King. Is it any good? And what is the difference between Mode 1 and Mode 2?

Hi Gerry.
Mode1 generaly means rudder on left stick, throttle on right. Mode2 throttle on left stick, rudder on right, that’show I have always understood. Hope this help Neil.

The TGY-i6 AFHDS is an excellent radio and at the moment is on offer at £32.32, an almost unbelievable price for a decent 6 Chan radio. Unless you are left handed you will want a mode 2 radio which will give you steering on the right (with sprung centering) and throttle on the left (stick stays where you left it).

Hi All, don't sweat about mode 1 or 2, you can easily reprogramme any stick or switch or pot to do whatever you want on any RX channel you want!👍
If you want the ratchet throttle stick on the right hand side just swap the sticks over! There are instructions in the manual and demos on U-tube.

I have one, a re-branded German version which they call 'Reely HT-6', and spent an entertaining evening chucking out all the fixed wing and heli presets.

Attached is the excellent 68 page English User / Programming manual I got with it. It has no Chin-english gobbledygook in it 😉
I reprogrammed mine for various boats and a Sub no problems.
A Good Buy, Cheers Doug 😎
PS I program my sets always for right stick rudder and throttle, leaves the left hand free for any 'special effects', or the Bierkrug 😉 - I sail here on a lake in a Biergarten 😁

Hi teejay, which Schnellboot are you building? The S-100?
They were generally known in England as E-Boats.

I have the Revell 1/72 kit, vid on this link shows what some guys can do with it!

At the time of posting the TGY-i6 AFHDS is available for £32.32 from the UK HobbyKing warehouse. Go to the hobbyking.com website and put 9114000020-0 into the search box. Their sale may be ending soon.

Hi RNinMunich I am building the 1-35 scale schenllboot from Italeri as the design was use for the RAF RttLs which were built in Germany in the 1950s my father was RT operator on D2763 &4 they were only in service for 5years , I did a post on the project about this time last year ,and since the tax man has returned my pension money I am now in a position to proceed , I am at the stage where the kit decks are complete and I have done the rudders and I am working on the tillers,( for s boot)and since I have been able to re equip my workshop / garage I will be starting the D boat, and thanks to ukengineman for the info on the TGY-i6, I expect I will be asking more advice in the near future.

Ps It is my understanding that the term E-boat was the allied ID for the s boots much the same as the Russian TU 95 is known the bear
