What transmitter by Kipper Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 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. 👍

What transmitter , receiver by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 days ago
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;'>transmitter-and-6ch-receiver-mode-2.html

What transmitter , receiver by Delboy Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 5 days ago
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: 6 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.

Charging NiMhs, one for Doug?... by Haverlock Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
If the charge lead plugs into the transmitter while the LiPO is still connected it probably has the needed electronics to limit the charge. Failing that you can charge the LiPO from your main charger just plug the LiPO lead into the charger balance port

Rebuild Flower Class Corvette by CB90 Captain   Posted: 22 days ago
Brought this completed 72nd scale Revell kit (normally around £125-150 new) second-hand in a local shop for £30 as per photos, no transmitter. changed 400 motor for a geared 540. changed ESC as control was poor acted like an on off switch. foamed bow area and added some plastic supports to the hull as shown, modify battery box.

Spektrum, new, useless... by Haverlock Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 22 days ago
At the risk of sounding as though I work for the company the Taranis also has telemetry. One can monitor battery voltage in the model via the transmitter. There are a load of other options including variometer and airspeed. However on the downside I do have to say its not the simplest beast to master since its so flexible you have to set EVERYTHING up. From the get go you have to decide which function is on which stick and where it is in the sequence to the receiver. Then things get complicated.

Spektrum, new, useless... by Haverlock Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 22 days ago
if your totally wedded to your orange receiver you could look at a taranis transmitter and an optional module. Once you get the method of the taranis system if works great and is flexable to the "nth" degree. Oh and the transmitter uses a " wall wart" to charge the internal battery.

Spektrum, new, useless... by stormin Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 22 days ago
One more thing Martin, not sure it's been mentioned previously, your transmitter must be in the off position before you flick the trainer switch with your index finger top left of your transmitter. So.........receiver on, (rapid flashing led in receiver) Then with your index finger flick and hold you trainer switch on your transmitter then turn power on your transmitter, all lights on the front will flash and your receiver led should then go to solid. Bind complete, remove bind plug from receiver off you go. Norman.

Spektrum, new, useless... by stormin Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 22 days ago
Sorry Marin, that tx is undoubtably dsmX👌, so with that in mind I think your next step would be to.............count out aloud to three, then if your transmitter has still not bound with your receiver............beat the living daylights out of them both with a big stick😁. Seriously Martin I can't understand why you've had no success, all the forgoing advice has been spot on and correct. I did purchase an orange receiver recently off eBay that refused to bind, I simply returned it,at a cost of one pound postage and received a replacement the next day which worked fine.

Spektrum, new, useless... by stormin Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 22 days ago
I've been using Spektrum now for 10 years, never a minuets problem, granted I only use the budget "orange" receivers on my boats but remember your transmitters protocol HAS to be dsmX and NOT just dsm2 otherwise you may experience binding problems. I am using spektrum to fly my 1/4 scale piper J3 cub and its faultless but I always use matching spektrum receivers in planes, not because I don't trust the orange just because when you've got over £1000 worth of plane in the sky it's worth having the added security. Martin are you sure your dx5s protocol is dsmX?. Norman.

Brace yourself! by Jerry Todd Captain   Posted: 23 days ago
Trying to rig the main tops'l and mizzen tops'l braces, I found the winch servos seemed to rotate more than the 3.5 times I thought they did. Oddly, one rotated 4.5 times and the other 4.25 times. I plugged in other winch servos and got the same results, but my DX6 transmitter didn't have a servo-travel setting that I could find in the manual. So I made new winch drums - again - based on what the servos were doing. The fore tops'l brace was fine, but the main seemed to pull one side more than the other side. I mentioned this oddity on RCGroups and someone suggested the DX6 did have a servo travel setting, and I was sure I had looked for it years ago. My manual isn't where is usually is, so I found a PDF on line. Lo and behold, there's a Servo-Travel setting spelled out on page 42! So I set about adjusting my TX settings to the new drums and there you go, working as advertised! In the meantime I installed eyes in the mizzen for brace blocks to mount to, and made a brass wire ring for the main tops'l brace to tie to as noted on the original ship a few posts back in this thread. I apparently slopped some epoxy on the inside of one of the mizzen tops'l brace thru-deck fairleads and blocked it up. I need to pull it like a bad tooth, and replace it, so the mizzen braces are hooked up yet. Here's some exciting video of the separate bracing for the fore and main tops'ls.
