OrangeRx T-SIX Vs. Spektrum DX6i Comparison




What do you think about this video?

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.......

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

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 

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 help me?

felixthemaster1: Horizon Uk doesnt do anything, they made me pay for another switch

Scott A: UHHHHHHHHHHH yeah I can guarantee you hobby king would not replace or fix anything for free lol. 

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.

Sly Law: Can end points be changed on either 

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.

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

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 . 

Muhkuh Muh: NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM HOBBYKING!!!

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.

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,,

YouTube Comment Guy: I own both transmitters and they work just fine for me

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

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

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 with spektrum?

opelize: T-Six on the way, got one used on eBay for $65 shipped!

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...

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 spektrum!!

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.

R Van: Stay away from hobby king. One has been warned! !!!

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

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

Richard Wells: Thank you, very helpful

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

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!!! 

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.

MartyGram RC: Great insight - thanks!

Mike Karlson: Nice review. Exactly what I was looking for! Thanx 

UltraOffie: Your review was very helpful. I bought the Orange RX T-six and I am looking forward to its arrival from Asia.

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. 

Vintage Vinny DIY: after this review no ....bought a new dx6 2014 edition

Mormert: Same same..?

purrungas2012: looks tempting but the color has got to go..... get it the right one and this bad boy should sell

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

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. 

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.

Jamie Lee: Spektrum = G.M. 

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.

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?

love_to_fly: What about the range ?

Doc Holliday: 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

gixxerman177: HobbyKing gives a 1 year warranty on all electronics(30 days on batteries), and their customer service is getting much better.

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

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

Richard Glissan: I have a dx6i and have seen the new orange transmitter which is a lot easier to program' definately will buy one.
