Samuel 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.
Hunter Benbow: seems more tempting to get a hobby king radio system, heaps cheaper, and they obviously work, so, make a choice
david ringler: I am waiting for my rtf blade 350qx it comes with the spectrum dx5, will this radio work with the blade 350qx?,and if yes how would I get the proper setups for it and would it be better than the spec5x it comes with? please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOT_DOG: I have a old jr, and I trust it more than any new fancy stuff
Jakub Kosiec: would the orange rx work with phoenix simulator
Diwrnach69: That is a rather silly thing to say, pretty much everything is a clone, cras, bikes, clothes, knives, forks, toilets, phones, PCs etc etc etc etc etc they are ALL clones.
Pat B: When US companies do this it's called, Capitalism!
Captan6pack: I wouldn't waste my money on a clone of any product. Period.
erg0centric: HobbyKing sells replacement switches and you don't have to ship the transmitter back and forth.
erg0centric: range is as far as you can see a model plane, be sure to buy a full range receiver
erg0centric: So you prefer the silver-painted Chinese made DX6i? They both are missing a flap/gyro knob. So pretty much identical, same transmitter chip.
erg0centric: HobbyKing wireless buddy box, ANY two radios.
Mason Hill: how do you bind the orange rx t-six to a parkzone micro plane?
Captan6pack: Tha is the cheapest looking plasticy hunk of crap I have ever seen. Are peepl really stupid enough to bind this to a 700 sized machine and fly it? Don't buy this crap...
RaceMiata: I have good overall success with HobbyKing 6ch DSM2 Orange Rx in my plane but won't trust them in my helis or the Orange T-Six TX. Have had radio glitch with 6ch Orange Rx (with my good power-checked DX8 by Horizon) in my plane and my friend's HK450 (with my old DX6i). That said I often fly my plane 400ft high and beyond without radio issue. Don't think I'll trust Orange T-Six though. DSMX is not just for situations with lots of flyers. It's more robust and recovers faster from radio glitches.
frode eriksen: what is the range of this? i have seen people on youtube having trubble with the orange one. you loose the signal from time to time ?
mmerry2 on YouTube: You can use this for your jet. Make sure you get an Orange Rx Spektrum compatible receiver to go with it. This radio does delta mixing which is needed on jets that have elevons (elevator/aileron combined).
christophertelford: 'Orange' coloured receivers are very good value for money. They are not the best in terms of range or performance - if you pay more money you get get much better equipment.
I'm very happy with my orange 433 transmitter module and receiver unit running the open source OpenLRSng firmware - the 1km + with telemetry backlink seems great for the price i paid. But it was cheap and you can get much better range if you pay more money.
christophertelford: Hobbyking would not replace a broken switch for free, on anything, ever. Horizon have one of the best after sales repair services i've ever used (3 times now). But if you are on a budget and you need a 2.4ghz radio ASAP then i expect the cheaper hobbyking will work fine.
Saleem Khan: can i use this remote controls for jet engine power plane .i want t o build my own jet engine plane with this remote control transmitter .does this support or not or i need some extra equipment .please give replay as soon as you see it pleaseee............... its an humble request .please mail details to my email id please.............
semtech30: As in most electronics sometimes your lucky and sometimes not. My 6i is malfunctioning intermittently and crashes planes. Orange is on the way. Cheaper than repairs and I might buy another Spektum when their price gets competitive. I think my 6i will meet the shotgun.
Christian Kaastrup: i would buy the Orange. Orange has the best radio system in the World. It has all the features you will ever need in RC. I use the Orange receivers with all my foam planes. And Orange has the best range as well.
mmerry2 on YouTube: Great question acaone1! I've done some research and can't find anyone who has used the trainer port on the T-SIX, let alone with Spektrum or JR radio. Has anyone done this successfully?
Kurtis Cook: I would stick to the dx6i, they are built well and hold battery life very well, plus I would stick to DSMX also
acaone1: Do you know if the trainer/buddy box function will work between the T-Six and a Spektrum DX7s (or DX6i)? I would like to buy the T-Six as a starter radio for a 9 year old who is just starting out.
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
SargentH12121: I would go with the dx6i any day.
Oliver Gallimore: 6i is better
Duckblind: What it comes down to is would you be willing to trust a $1200+ Model to a $65 TX? I sure as freak wouldn't and won't. But i guess if you're flying Blade stuff and Foamies who cares!
QekLiHoQfuh: Handy vid, thanks! Just saw these were available, though in the UK they seem costlier than the price you cite - seems the DX6i offerering DSMX and a warranty probably justifies the extra cost, but the battery connector is a nice touch, as are the extra menu buttons etc. The colour is I guess a matter of taste... easier to find it if you leave it lying around in the grass perhaps :-)
QekLiHoQfuh: He might be a bullcrapter, hard to say, but if you think 50% DOA on anything is "statistically impossible" then you should probably read up on statistics a bit. And I'd make time for some psych, while you're about it, too. Expressing disagreement in terms of angry nonsense seldom impresses the peanut gallery, much less the target of your ire. Just sayin'. :-)
pavcon: DX6i does NOT have DSM compatibility
invertedlow: That's statistically impossible. You are a compulsive bullcrapter. That's the same mental disorder serial rapists and pedophiles have. I certainly hope you haven't progressed to even more pathetic pathetic behaviour.
invertedlow: I can buy five things from china for the price of one of horizon crooks crap. If all but one were broken, which is statistically impossible, I'd still save half my money and have a better product. You're either one of the horizon crooks, an idiot, or most likely both. You scum deserve to go bankrupt.
Walter Clark: Thanks Mike for putting up this video.
I'd like to add that the T-Six has a useless manual. I suspect it is more than just "English as a Second Language." Clearly the copied every detail except the manual. But it is not possible to copy the culture and it is the culture of R/C flying that is needed in a manual. If this is your first radio make sure you have a friend to help you.
JayP J.: Would the T-Six be compatible with the Tactic Anylink to bind with the Helimax 1SQ?
spud runner: BULL
kenbirzneck: order crap from hobby king ,,,broken on arrival with huge shipping charges to canada ...beware of hobbyking ....horizon stands by their products and doesnt ship broken garbage from the chinese shop floor....
motokid032: Do they have a module that I can use in my TH9x to bind with BNF aircraft?
yusuke urameshi: if only one wasnt terribly ugly..........
mmerry2 on YouTube: Yes.
GSXRfasterthenu: Will the ORANGE transmitter work with BNF airplanes from Horizon?
Shane Judge: If I didn't already have the DX6i I would buy the Orange RX for sure, just because it does the same the the DX6i does and its about half the price. I may switch over eventually, I would like to see more reviews and see if the transmitter is as good as it looks. Thank you for the video, its a lot of help
YoungJDogg: Good comparison video, thank you.
Waimea Boy: both are good radios
Jenifer Coverstone: I got turnigy 9xr with dsm2 module that covers all the dsm options works for me on those bind n fly planes
ChicaWolverina: And yeah, the T-Six would be my first choice, and it's really cute.
ChicaWolverina: T-Six TX case looks like it was made with the same molds used for the Futaba 9C?
Kenneth Elston: What is the process for getting a backlit screen and what's the cost? I got a DX6i at a really good price in a package that I won on Ebay and having older eyes it's hard to see the screen indoors and outdoors. Is adding a backlit screen a mod as I've see folks doing with the Orange Rx? thanks
MrCubcrazy: When you sent your 6i to Horizon for fixing..did you have the backlight installed then? I have the backlight, and all machined aluminum trim toggles. I am considering sending it in for DSMX upgrade, and am wondering if they will fuss about the aftermarket parts I put in it. Thanks
