What transmitter , receiver by catman Seaman   Posted: 8 hours ago
Sorry that should be 10 TEN channals lol😁

The flysky fsi6/tgy i6 upgrades to ten channels for the price of a of Data cable at £3.00 from hobbyking and a 10 channel telemetry rx £15.00 some sensers at £7.00 so it monitors main battery voltage and RPM which is very useful especially the voltage . RPM handy for prop choosing I have done my tx and now all I have to do is figure out what to do with the other channels better to many than not enough Good set and expansion at low cost 👍

very good points all, particularly Norman. Some artf models, foamies mainly, are far from that, I know, I've had some. So take for example a popular brand in small hobby shops, dynam. They make very good models, on a budget. They are ready to fly, once the receiver is in there. £120 ish gets a nice model, with something like a 5 foot span, so it can be big. Last one I had, after pre assembly checks, because I knew this would happen, motor firewall was loose, prop was on backwards, spar for wings needed attention as it didn't fit, some of the wires where labelled wrong, and the wheel retracts where both damaged by over tightening. I knew what to look for, but a novice Dad and Lad, buys a birthday present, assembles, goes to local footie field, and the inevitable happens. No range check, because they don't know about this no pre assembly checks no experience, or help (which is the benefit of a club) no insurance when the model crashes into the carpark and damages a car (ive seen this) Sorry, Ive taken this thread way off topic, so wont carry thsi on, apologies to the thread starter!

you don't have to join a club . BMFA (British model flying association) will take none club members, you join as a country member. You don't actually have to take the proficiency test, but most clubs insist on it. Not only does it demonstrate a basic understanding, and basic competency of flight, electric, ic, petrol or free flight, its also an understanding of caa rules and safety. There is also the LMA (Large model association) which also carries public liability insurance. Flying without insurance just isn't worth the risk, imagine, on a nice hillside, nobody around, up on a thermal, and the tx fails, the soarer comes down, (anywhere as there is now no control) and hits an animal, or worse, a walker, would the £34 for a full year public liability insurance still seem expensive when you are hauled in court facing prosecution and possible imprisonment? Same with an rc boat, particularly a fast one, receiver packs in, boat is out of control, and little jonny has his hands in the water as it hits the bank, still don't think insurance is worthwhile? I bet a lot of people insure their mobile phone for more than £34 a year, by the way, Im sure BMFA insurance also covers other rc disciplines 👍

well, bathroom trial's have taken place, a few adjustments, i.e positioning of the battery for balance, otherwise no bad at all, sit's ok may need a little balancing with weights but the open pond will allow travel and view from all angle's, electrics are in and basic, old transmitter and receiver, a cheep ebay esc, new motors, shafts, prop's and rudders, all working together well, the rest is as mentioned "stuff" that I found in the loft, shed and junk room.

What transmitter by Kipper Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 10 days ago
Hi, Take a look at this, it's a good unit, used by some in our club, all set up is done on the built in screen, easy to use & dependable. About as cheap as they come but very good. Receivers are cheap too. 👍

Hi I have both the Turnigy and Flysky 6 channel ones. The same, great units and you can upgrade the switches and control knobs to a number of different colours if you wish. Check out Banggood. Canabus

Flysky i-6 is amazing value for money for a 6 channel computer radio. Hobbyking sell the same set with their Turnigy brand as the TGY i-6. You can buy the TGY i-6 from Hobbyking in the UK for around £45:- style='background-color:yellow;'>receiver-mode-2.html

Planet kit is cheap and cheerful, if it's still in production. It's not got the most bells and whistles but it's functional and at an affordable price. Take a look at the Howe's double page advert in MB magazine. They often have special deals.

People seem to be impressed with the FlySky stuff. I just bought a 3 channel set for silly cheap money and it works perfectly straight from the factory. No binding to do either. Martin

What transmitter by Nobby-Clark Petty Officer   Posted: 12 days ago
Guys I’m in the market for a new transmitter and after advice. The first boat had a two channel, my new build will have independent motor control, I need some advise please on transmitter/ receiver, for two motors, one rudder, maybe spare etc for sound or cooling fan for motors etc. Any help out there , it needs to be reliable but pensioner affordable if the two go together. Regards Nobby

Hi, I’ve built one boat now I’m building a replica of my ship, what is a good 4 or 6 channel transmitter that’s not too expensive to get please. I’m a novice that’s willing to learn.

I just had to get it! by captaindoug1 Petty Officer   Posted: 22 days ago
Re light switch, on my Brooklin I use a push on push off switch or you can go to Hansen Hobbies and check out there Pico Electronic receiver switch that you can use to turn lights on or off from your receiver

I'll try it, Haverlock. I'll try everything once. I should be receiving the new receiver this week. Something else to try. Martin

Hi Don't know wether you solved this yet. I recently tried to bond my Dx8 to a receiver and failed. Reason my receiver battery too low. When charged bound first time. Clearly rx power is critical Regards Kevin
