dacasman: Flysky FS-T6 is a better radio than the orange, and it's a bit cheaper.
I would even argue the T6 is better than the DX6i
chris gange: All hobbyking stuff has 12month warranty, getting them to honor it is
another thing, you have to harass them time and time again and most of the
contact points can barely speak english and cannot read it barely at all!
in the end they will honor the warranty's it's just a pain dealing with
them, most people including myself buy their stuff because in this Tx's
case the orange is 1/3rd the price and performs better than the spectrum,
and there is a version2 now with a higher output.......
TheBiodinkelpizza: Whats does Mode1 or Mode2 mean. Ich would like to buy the OrangeRX
Transmitter but I don`t know what Mode1 and M2 mean. Can somebody please
darrell king: Your review has helped me decide on my next transmiter purchase. I most
likely will go with the Orange because of the price on it and the pricing
on the recievers. It is just that difference alone plus the others that
you mentioned that have made up my mind . Spektrum and JR just charge way
to much for the transmiter and recievers and now thereiis one out there
that is priced for us poor folks. IMight take off the covering and paint
the thing a different color but maybe not . thanks for the post it has
helped me a lot
felixthemaster1: Horizon Uk doesnt do anything, they made me pay for another switch
Sly Law: Can end points be changed on either
oscar7771: my T six Has not model match , that's why I sell it on ebay , I brought the
new Dx 6 I really recommend that
opelize: T-Six on the way, got one used on eBay for $65 shipped!
Scott A: Yeah I'm not even going to say anything about your experience. I just know
the other 90% are not as lucky as you.
watchdog gibson: No I would not make it my radio over the Dx6 but would use as a buddy box
trainer . I have the spm6700 Dx6 that was realest may of this year ,&
sold my dx6i and bought the orange for just that purpose and it works
great especially on the wireless buddy set up .
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.
R Van: Stay away from hobby king. One has been warned! !!!
Wilfred Firley: im inquiring if there is some sort of reset button on the dx6i i recently
built a quad,,i have several,the one i built i just cant seem to bind this
i have the latest kk2 board which i just installed,,cant bind it with
either a spectrum or an orange reciever,,i also have 3--- 500 align which i
am also having trouble binding,,the other quads and helis are already bound
up no problems,,
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.
YouTube Comment Guy: I own both transmitters and they work just fine for me
Robert Bowen: great review. Looks like a nice radio but I'm a newbie and have the ds6i
but not enough experience to make a valid comparison.
Andrew Jackson: So; can the Orange Transmitter bind with any plane, that is suppose to work
Ultra rc: When it comes to your rc radio link I would never go with any of the
knockoff versions of spektrum it's just to much of a risk. It doesn't
matter too much for smaller planes I use orange r115x dsmx receivers for
smaller planes but I would never go for knockoff transmitter stay with
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
Muhkuh Muh: NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM HOBBYKING!!!
Jeremy Catches: Now compare it to the Dx6...
Martin Meza: Sir,do you know if the orange transmitter can bind with the planes that
have the spektrum receivers built in them?
MartyGram RC: Great insight - thanks!
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.
cnbsdad: Not sure if I can put my faith in a $56.00 transmitter flying a $500.00
Shady King: how far can the spektrum go? and what receiver do you use for it? please
Scott A: UHHHHHHHHHHH yeah I can guarantee you hobby king would not replace or fix
anything for free lol.
Mormert: Same same..?
spyhawk00: Is the OrangeRx T-SIX compatible with the DX6i as buddy box via cable? Also
is it compatible with Phoenix RC Sim?
Vintage Vinny DIY: after this review no ....bought a new dx6 2014 edition
what is the max range of DX and range of orange?
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.
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!!!
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
UltraOffie: Your review was very helpful. I bought the Orange RX T-six and I am looking
forward to its arrival from Asia.
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.
Mike Karlson: Nice review. Exactly what I was looking for! Thanx
purrungas2012: looks tempting but the color has got to go..... get it the right one and
this bad boy should sell
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
Jamie Lee: Spektrum = G.M.
Uhura Oogabuga: They should have made it lime green. Then I would have bought it.
Brave Apollo: 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.
Richard Wells: Thank you, very helpful
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
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 ?
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?
Craigslist Administrator: 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.
