Well, I finally pulled the plug on a new, programmable TX/RX system.
After having spent endless hours and over 7 months researching all the forums and product web sites related to Spektrum, Futaba, FlySky, Tactic, Turnigy, Hitech, Airtronics, Exceed, HK.....on & on.....I've purchased the Turnigy 6XS FHSS 2.4Ghz.
I've been through the old Exceed PC programmable 6ch 2.4ghz TX/RX school of frustration and the Dynam/FMS DSSS 2.4ghz 4ch (pull a part, swap & re-bind RX) long enough now...lol.
I really did not want to go through another time consuming, memorization, carry the manual in the pocket experience and I really do not need/want all the bells and whistles or cost associated with the "most" popular Spektrum dx6i or dx7 and +$20.00 pop for each R/X.....not that $9.00 for the orange is a problem.
Since I only own (1) 450 heli which I seldom fly, and (3) planes at the moment, all of which are park flyers under 30oz........and my next plane purchase(s) will be the GWS Stearman and the PZ Trojan T-28 PNP, I thought the simplicity and cost of the Turnigy would be good enough to grow with and provide safe and reliable range and performance (based on all I have read and used at the field).......I know two buddies who have either the 6x or 9x and both have had NO issues with either one!
Ya, I went the HK route from China......but was able to pick-up the TX/RX, 2-XR6000 6ch R/X's and 3-Turnigy 30amp esc's with shipping for $126.00.........I would have spent more than that just for a Spektrum, Tactic, Futaba, Airtronics, Hitec....TX!........The FLySky is simular, but I liked the physical size and construction of the Turnigy and the programming logic.
Should be here by next Friday.......I'll post results once I've had time to get acquainted with it........Finally, I can get the two other planes now with what I saved on the TX.........looking forward to that!
