    FlySky Introduces its newest 6 channel 2.4GHz system, The FS-T6. After years of success with the CT6B, FlySky presents the new FS-T6 with loads of cool and convenient features making the operation of this transmitter simple and instinctive.
    The 6-channel FlySky FS-T6 is the perfect transmitter for sport modelers who want the power of a programmable transmitter but don't necessarily need a lot of excess features they do not use. It includes all of the important features and programmable parameters to support a variety of helicopters, gliders, and airplanes. It even has the ability to store 20 models allowing the user to save a whole fleet of aircrafts.
    Programming the FS-T6 is very easy and intuitive. It is implemented with a simple click and scroll dial allowing quick and easy menu navigation and manipulation. The large backlite LCD screen with large fonts is easy to read and the simplified menus will immediately put first-time programmers at ease. Many programming functions like throttle curves and expo are graphically depicted to give you a clearer picture of the changes you're making.
    FlySky’s AFHDS (Automatic Frequency Hopping Digital System) 2.4GHz system offers a lot of advantages. It is equipped with a super active and passive anti-jamming capability and has very low power consumption with high receiver sensitivity. The 2.4GHz system puts the radio out of the frequency range by any “noise” generated by other electronic components in your model such as the brushless motor, speed controller, servos, or other metal to metal noise. This eliminates interference and glitching that can plague a traditional radio system. Extreme rigorous testing by FlySky engineers makes this AFHDS system solid and worthy.

    Does this include a RX? Doesn't mention it. If not. Minds as well get the RX9. Because the RX is 15.00 more dollars.

    deductive reasoning would support the fact that it comes with a RX, all TX's come with a RX, unless they are sold specifically as "TX only".

    I'm new to the hobby. So, I don't think deductive reasoning has any thing to do with it! On HobbyPartz. com where it is sold. The 9 channel Flysky. specifically says. Comes with RX. The 6 channel doesn't. So, I think my question is reasonable. But thanks anyway.

    I understand. This question is only answered via experience, I explained how I came to it using my experience. I can tell you are new just by the question, no need to explain, this is what we are here for.

    If it didn't come with a RX, it would state which RX's is it compatible with, or there would be a link or "required" section pointing you to the RX. It can be assumed that a TX is worthless without an RX and in my experience any cheap TX will come with one RX. This is because they are normally only compatible with that brand, where as speckrum, JR, Futaba have defined protocols such as DSM, DSM2, DSMX, Faast and so on and so on....

    this TX I posted above most likely has it's own frequency hopping protocol (stated as AFHDS) and therefore would require an RX or it would be worthless.

    I am sure they will be selling the RX separately as well and it might even be compatible with other similar, and even re-branded, tx's like those from HK. They kind of all come from the same Chinese factories anyhoo...

    Ditto - happy with it, but once you flash it, you need to have some knowhow to properly take advantage of your options. I never bothered with the stock firmware, so I cna't say if it was even user-friendly or not. But now that I understand this latest version of ER9X a bit better, it's an AWESOME system. Jsut wish there was an updated manual out there. The lastest version has a bunch of (cool) new changes that I've been muddling through.

    hey guys I found the manual and I readed the important;
    20 memories
    8 character names
    Dual rate/ Expo for chanels 1-2-4 (this is for you Don!!!)
    T6 expo.jpg
    throttle curve (4 points)
    Subtrim
    End point
    3 Mix program incliding offset
    Elevon Delta mix ( Aileron elevator mix, erroneously named vtail )
    graphic display for each channels
    switch (4) or knob (2) asignability to any aux channel (5 or 6) (anybody remember the problem of use channel 5 or gear in any aux function in mix programs??? forget this)
    it seems the rx is the same than CT-6B
    Upgradeable firmware... are you thinking the same than I think? 6er firmware?

    For sure is a serious competitor to any famous branded 6channel tx...
    what it miss? compared to Dx6i, Hitec Optic6 or futaba 6ex, only more built in programs like:
    FLAPERON, VTAIL, LAND MODE or AIRBRAKE (two position flaps for example), RUDDER TO AILERON MIX, ELEVATOR TO FLAP MIX

    is a excellent choice for this price
    definitely I recommend this to a friend who does not want to spend much....
