Budget equipment FlySky FS-i6 (2.4G 6CH) for quadcopter


For every hobbyist, sooner or later, the question arises of buying equipment for radio control of models. For car models, they usually take simple 2-3 channel equipment, but for something more serious – 6-10 channels. First of all, this is true for flying models, including quadrocopters. One of the best options for beginners is a 6-channel equipment kit from FlySky.

This is a FlySky FS-i6 remote control complete with FS-iA6 (2.4G 6CH) receiver.

Despite all its budget, this is a well-thought-out equipment for 6 channels for aircraft and multi-rotor models. When choosing, pay attention – there are two versions, for the left and for the right hand (the location of the “gas” stick). On the reverse side there is an interface for the trainer (simulator program).

Powered by 4 AA batteries or rechargeable batteries. When enabled, it gives a warning about a non-zero position of the sticks. Healthy.

The display is informative, there is a lot of information, including information about the charge level. In general, the equipment is normal, albeit budget. Suitable for inexpensive projects, for beginners. More demanding users may choose something more expensive.

I took one of the shares, it was very profitable. In any case, this kit is optimal for beginners, in terms of cost and its capabilities. It is suitable not only for multi-rotor models or aircraft, but also as a replacement for simple “pistol” equipment for car models, especially if you are comfortable with these types of remotes.

The six-channel receiver allows you to control not only the movement of the model, but also additional functions (camera, attachments, etc.). Well, in general, the kit is not very expensive. You can buy a receiver separately (for example, for the second model), but it is more profitable to take it complete with a remote control.
