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.

I quote extracts from the spec­i­fi­ca­tions for the remote con­trol and for the receiv­er sep­a­rate­ly.

Sup­plied in a brand­ed card­board box. Inside the equip­ment, the receiv­er. The kit also includes detailed instruc­tions.

Enough detailed instruc­tions, even a begin­ner will be easy to under­stand. Receiv­er (receiv­er) FS-iA6. You can buy sep­a­rate­ly, but it is much more prof­itable to take it with the equip­ment. Two anten­nas (2.4GHz). There is a jumper for blind­ing the receiv­er (decou­pling).

The appear­ance of the Fly­Sky FS-i6 remote con­trol. Pay atten­tion to addi­tion­al chan­nel acti­va­tors — suit­able for con­trol­ling attach­ments, such as a cam­era. The pho­to shows a descrip­tion of the remote con­trol inter­faces

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.
