Programmable Tx by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 hours ago
Always assuming that the set actually transmits during programming! I'm not convinced of that so will test with my Reely/Turnigy and Spektrum sets. Watch this space!! 😉

Shame, the ones for my Reely/Turnigy are pretty good. For my Spektrum - so much it gets confusing 🤔 or you forget where you are! Bon chance mon ami! 😎

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 😎

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

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

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

Conrad REELY, Flysky iA6, FS iS6, Turnigy HT6 !! by canabus Commander   Posted: 5 days ago
May be we will see some more re-badged names!!! eg Dave M, Rolfman and Canabus. HA, HA !!!

Conrad REELY, Flysky iA6, FS iS6, Turnigy HT6 !! by rolfman2000 Commander   Posted: 5 days ago
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 😊

Conrad REELY, Flysky iA6, FS iS6, Turnigy HT6 !! by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 days ago
Probably all re-badged from he same supplier. Dave

Hi I seen on another site a RC Master, same thing relabelled !!! So that's another to the list. Canabus

Tank Steering by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 days ago
Hi Doug Micro and mini servos are great until they break then they are a bin job. That Hitek has a broken drive to the internal pot. I have looked inside and could hardly see the components let alone repair. Had two go on my RG65 yacht. Early bad design of the rudder shaft which rusts and causes the servo to overheat, mine actually melted and the motor was welded. Now replaced with a standard size servo, plenty of room and not really a weight problem as I use a LiOn 6v battery and switch mode supply. 6V burns out the micro servos, as happened with my first servo in the RG65. If it has a 6pin plug it probably is an early Bonner servo. Doubt it will work with modern kit. Might be a collectors item so you could try flebay Good to hear you can upgrade the Flysky/Turnigy sets to 10 channel. Does it support s-bus as this will allow even more channels? Dave

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 😎

Hi All The Turnigy/Flysky iA6 are amazingly good value systems but did you know that they can be upgraded to full 10 channel operation! You will need to buy a new 10 channel RX for about £15: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/ style='background-color:yellow;'>turnigy-ia10b-receiver-10ch-2-4g-afhds-2a-telemetry-receiver-w-ppm-sbus.html And a cable to go from your computer USB port to the connector on the back of the TX for less than £3: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hobby-king-2-4ghz-6ch-tx-usb-cab... And then the firmware update from this site: https://github.com/benb0jangles/FlySky-i6-Mod- There are also some YouTube videos to guide you through the upgrade process. This is one of a number of them on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iMQMh_kgRY&t=187s I have bought the bits but not got round to doing the upgrade yet but apparently it is a very popular mod that allows you to assign a separate auxiliary channel to each of the switches and knobs. Robbob.

Hi Canabus Just re-read your initial post and see that the "the Turnigy/Flysky IA6 both mode 1 and 2 have the non centering IC throttle on the left or right" Please ignore my last post and accept my apologies, I should have realised multicopters have introduced a whole host of new types of controllers. Cheers dave

Tank Steering by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
Hi Doug Though it might be the TGY-i6 but you were suggesting the Turnigy HT6. Looks like a good set. I will have access to one later this year as the Club is buying one for the main prizes in the Christmas Raffle! I do believe most modern servos work with all kit with perhaps a few exceptions, not like the early days when different pulse centres were quite common, not to mention the reversal of the Positive and negative leads. Then again the plugs were often type specific, not like todays standard types! Cheers Dave
