Waimea Boy: i have a dx6i. i would buy the orange too since it's a good radio and you
can have with both radios 20 flying units. i bought spektrum to support
usa. but i also buy the value stuff too.
idriwzrd: Beware of Hobbyking. They'll take your money and not ship your products.
Then, their 'customer service' dept. will tell you that a refund is
pending... for up to two months.
R Vank: Stay away from hobby king. One has been warned! !!!
Scott A: UHHHHHHHHHHH yeah I can guarantee you hobby king would not replace or fix
anything for free lol.
Martin Meza: Sir,do you know if the orange transmitter can bind with the planes that
have the spektrum receivers built in them?
Kay Hudasch: going to program a orange on Saturday - helping out a friend - I'm a DX6i
dude - see if I can master orange ... LOL
cnbsdad: Not sure if I can put my faith in a $56.00 transmitter flying a $500.00
Roger Tyson: I don't know if I would trust my aircraft in the sky with the orange, at
least until it's proven, to look at it another way, when something is sold
for so little it usually means it was built for the same, quality or
longevity of quality I think would be an issue.
Richard Wells: Thank you, very helpful
Shady King: how far can the spektrum go? and what receiver do you use for it? please
Marty Gramenz: Great insight - thanks!
purrungas2012: looks tempting but the color has got to go..... get it the right one and
this bad boy should sell
FireFoxConn: you forgot one very big difference. the t-six is selling for $64, while the
dx6i is just over $100... the differences between the two and the lack of
dsmx does not justify paying that much more for a transmitter for those of
us who are just budget minded park flyers. Orange has had issues with DOA
and poor component selection on some of the older product, but as far as I
know they have made some changes with their QoS checks. I haven't had any
issues with any of them. I will be saving up for a spektrum transmitter
later on though for when I plan to get into bigger models and event flying.
right now, I can not justify paying over 100 bucks for a 6 channel when All
i do is fly 2 or 3 micros and a quad in a dirt field by my house. none of
the models i have cost more then 200 bucks anyways.
DoctorBadVibez: Actually, to help out with the whole warranty thing, from one consumer to
all others who are not in the know; They do have a warranty, usually lipos
are 30 days (some are longer if I'm not mistaken) and all their
electronics are 1 year warrantied from date of purchase, use it, it
actually worked for me and my claim on a KK2 board, just doesn't... work..
on crashes (they don't do crashes).... however, use the warranty.... don't
just let it go when something fails withing that warranty time frame. I
find their product line is getting better and a lot of the crappy stuff is
being phased out.
JackG79: I have a DX6i... I had to buy my own backlight for the LCD screen, and I
have no JST plug for a rechargeable lipo. It is a decent radio, but the
price is too high. The DX9 is a good radio, but is about 150.00 more than
it's worth. ($400.00) Im glad that HK is expanding it's OrangeRx line. This
stuff is GOOD!!!! I've used it, and anyone that has used it that I know,
speaks highly of it. They just kinda stood on Horizion Hobbys shoulders
and took things to the next level. The T-Six TX is half the price of the
DX6i, and it comes with a backlit display, and a JST plug... that ALONE
makes it worth it. Not to mention it's a nice backup radio to have incase
you want to just swap out machines and keep going without changing a bunch
of stuff. Shut down, and grab the orange and go...... I am gonna buy an
Khairul Hizrin: I've heard that some of the t-six transmitter's have fried circuits as soon
as the batteries are inserted and turned on...is this true?
Mormert: Same same..?
dardi jones: Pfft Why in God's name would Hobbyking put a warranty on ANY of their
products???? Don't get me wrong, they sell quality products for very low
prices, but when it comes to customer satisfaction trough service, their
whole reputation goes down the toilet!!!
Nicholas Kazantzidis: I own a DX9, Every Blade Heli,made except for the 600x 700x, and the CX4.
plus I own 22 planes. The has all been bought in 5 months! I am now
exploring outside of HH products because, yes the best service possible,
yet some of their products are way over priced for the quality. FMS makes
a great plane at 30% discount with more features, so does Dynam, freewing,
Blitzrc and so on. This orange radio at the cost is great to leave in the
back of your car, have a few inexpensive planes with it and have fun, YES,
FUN, some people forgot with all these cool toys what the hobby is all
about. Very happy to see this competition in the market, it will only
drive better more detailed products as well as drive down the costs for all
UltraOffie: Your review was very helpful. I bought the Orange RX T-six and I am looking
forward to its arrival from Asia.
Shut up and Fly: If you are new to flying and are looking for something cheap, I would
recommend the ORX. If you are more experienced, you would like the DX6i.
The DX6i is a very good quality transmitter.
Alex Hewgill: I'm getting the dx6i mainly because I don't feel like putting my tri or any
of my planes (even the $60 ones) in the air with a cheaper 'reproduction'
type radio... I know the stats are similar but I'm not putting my trust in
Guyon Hayklan: Good basic review, I have the OrangeRx and I have to say I like it. My only
complaint, as with many 6 channel radios is there are no 3 position
switches for the Aux (flap/gear) channels.
Mike Karlson: Nice review. Exactly what I was looking for! Thanx
Uhura Oogabuga: They should have made it lime green. Then I would have bought it.
what is the max range of DX and range of orange?
gixxerman177: HobbyKing gives a 1 year warranty on all electronics(30 days on batteries),
and their customer service is getting much better.
love_to_fly: What about the range ?
Vinny Turpin: after this review no ....bought a new dx6 2014 edition
John Dough: do not buy from hobbyking they have no warranty info listed anywhere there
a company that makse crap in china and mexico.. they do not honor warranty
past the 30 days there a crap company
richard glissan: I have a dx6i and have seen the new orange transmitter which is a lot
easier to program' definately will buy one.
Donald Wilkinaon: Horizon would not fix my dx6i roller. Just because I put a backlight in it.
My new radio is a futaba 8j wont use horizon again
mmerry2 on YouTube: Yes, T6 has MODEL MATCH. Are you asking about the receiver FAILSAFEs? If
so, I think the OrangeRx receivers have FAILSAFE support, at least the 7
and 9-channel versions are advertised to have it. Not sure about the 4 and
nwimpney: it's probably doable, as most radios use the same PPM signal for
communication. I can't say for certain, though, since I don't own one. You
would probably have to make your own cable too.
oliverg98: 6i is better
RVJimD: When I bought my first 6I a few years back, I was told it only worked with
DSM2 and DMX. Have they added the original DSM now?
erg0centric: range is as far as you can see a model plane, be sure to buy a full range
mmerry2 on YouTube: Thanks for your videos too. In your video, I thought I saw an FCC sticker
on the bottom of the radio. Does it have an FCC id on it?
Cyberdactyl: All you have to do is hold a Spektrum radio in your hands, and then a
Turnigy, and I'm sure this Orange thing, to know the Spektrum is a couple
notches above in quality. No need to open them up, which further makes the
Spektrum stand apart. Certainly not 7 times the quality, but clearly better
audioentertainment: If you go to the product page, and scroll towards the bottom just after add
to cart there is a folder tab called "Files". The third ling is a PDF on
how to make your own trainer port. The port on the back of the T-Six is an
S-video cord. You will have to do some experimenting, but it appears that
buddy boxing with a Spektrum Radio is possible. Even if it is not, I can
buy 2 of these for just a little more coin than 2 DX5- transmitters, and
less thant 1 DX6i.
JollySwagman2006: At less than a third of cost for DX6i here its not bad only Major downfall,
is NO "C" tick Approval, so in Australia dont expect to be able to use at
ANY Local Flying Fields/Clubs ect.
dmerc00: I had my rudder channel go bad on my DX6i and like you it was out of
warranty. They not only fixed it free but totally replaced all the pots on
the gimbals. Not sure what HK would do but the turn-around time could be
months if I had to send it to China. Would I buy the OrangeRX? Maybe if I
was new to the hobby or low on cash. It is a very good deal.
RCflyer729: I have both and I would go with orange it's a lot cheaper and got a lot
bigger back lit LCD screen
Tolga Toykoç: I have received it few days ago. It worked fine and I love all its features
but today all of a sudden the LCD display stopped working! Everything else
including the LCD backlight is working, it transmitts, mix and flap
switches are working on my last selected model but there is nothing on the
LCD display! Since I can't select a model and can't see anything on the
sceen, it is junk now. Any ideas? Maybe the LCD display is simply dead?
RCStuff: very good review, thanks! How do this radio compares to Turnigy 9x in terms
of range with stock antennas ?
BuggyAlstare1998: If its a 700 dollar RC go with dc5
GeorgeBonez: BTW one last little tid-bit of info. My last name is “Haskins” which is
Brit so maybe thats why I am such a hard-case or Rebel as a US-Citizen ! I
credit that quality to my British ancestry or YOU! I hate to see you be so
oppressed by your liberal Gov that its almost not enough to fight it here
in my once free nation. I want to come there and help you too because
without you there would be no me. Sorry didnt mean to rant k. things r
really getting freaked up here now & its going to get ugly:(
gemster18: will this orange radio Bind and Fly to a model with Spektrum tech, like the
Blade MQX or like a SR120 Heli???
propfella: You stay where you are. Foull mouthed ignorant nobodies. Who know nothing
about politics and typical septic tank like just wants to start wars they
seem to have a habit of losing lately
Sam Guimbellot: Q: Is it true that the DX6i is the same as a JR660? Since they will use the
same RX... I am researching and want to get the BEST for the small budget I
have. I also don't want to NEED to upgrade after only a year. Thanks for
the review and all the comments.
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
