Steve Fox says:

flysky FS-I6, dirt cheap computer radio with back lit lcd display and pretty much has every feature you NEED just not some fancy stuff you dont need. runs diversity , has 2 way communication with telemetry and is 6 ch out the box but is easily flashed with new firmware to become a 10ch radio, its the perfect radio for beginners and experienced alike

I am not able to get an economical transmitter and receiver and I have to make an RC plane
I have a wireless ps2 dualshock joystick so please can you find a method and upload a video of how to make a transmitter and receiver from a ps2 wire less joystick without using arduino

kingg457 says:

new to RC and this type of hobby, but I bought a RTF with a 4 channel radio. I was wondering what would you recommend if I want just one transmitter for any type of flying i.e. helicopter, multi rotor, airplanes… they said that the transmitter is an investment. I set a budget and Im willing to spend 300$ for one good transmitter. its kinda tough figuring out what to buy

Break 3Step says:

which transmitters do you like best or can you recommend for strong intermediates?? I fly fpv but not hard and I like flying normal airplanes! Is the frsky taranis good enough for me or do I have to buy a graupner mz 24 or spektrum dx 18?? My problem is that the receivers of spektrum and graupner are very expensive!! I would love to hear what you think about that!!

joespeed1952 says:

Why would I want to pay over $1000 for a transmitter? Why would anyone?? Can someone please give me the cheapest 6 channel, and when I can find a sale on horizon hobby website, so I can get an rc plane for cheap for my Birthday…

wardope says:

Gary Vale says:

Train your parents

Jack H says:

is the DXe a good remote for a beginner?

Luide Mulumba says:

You forgot to mention DSSS (Direct Sequence)

szaki says:

When I started in this hobby we had AM Rx/Tx radios! LOL!
Even a garage door opener can mass up the plane!

jahair l says:

Very nice explanation of Duel Rate and Expos.

mason stump says:

what can you do with auxiliary channels?

Sal C says:

I just came across your video (which was posted 3 years & 3 months ago) and would like to know if the Spektrum DX-6 can be used on a Protocol FX video quadcopter. Also I would like to know the difference in the DX6 and the rev e, i and other revisions. Thank you for your help with this question

Ralph Kluge says:
