OrangeRx T-SIX Vs. Spektrum DX6i Comparison

What do you think about this video?

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.

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,,

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. 

cnbsdad: Not sure if I can put my faith in a $56.00 transmitter flying a $500.00 plus plane. 

Martin Meza: Sir,do you know if the orange transmitter can bind with the planes that have the spektrum receivers built in them?

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. 

Jeremy Catches: Now compare it to the Dx6...

Marty Gramenz: Great insight - thanks!

Richard Wells: Thank you, very helpful

Shady King: how far can the spektrum go? and what receiver do you use for it? please reply

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.

Ultra PM: 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 spektrum!!

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 OrangeRX T-6. 

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 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 price ranges.

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 it...

Great Zeus: 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 

spyhawk00: Is the OrangeRx T-SIX compatible with the DX6i as buddy box via cable? Also is it compatible with Phoenix RC Sim?

Uhura Oogabuga: They should have made it lime green. Then I would have bought it.

HopeFullSpiritFlyer1: hello. what is the max range of DX and range of orange? thank you.

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

Jamie Lee: Spektrum = G.M. 

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

richardgli: 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 6-channel receivers.

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 receiver

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 made.

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

Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
