The HK-6X 2.4 Ghz seems to be the same transmitter as the KDS-K-6-X 2.4 Ghz. It has a lot of functions except EXPO.
LED display | Show model type & battery voltage | 5 Models parameters memory | 6 Channels standard servo signal output | Support 5 points throttle curve on NORMAL mode & IDLE mode | Support 5 points pitch curve on NORMAL mode, IDLE mode & HOLD mode | Set reverse (REV), sub trim (SUB) and travel by LED and button | Dual rate (DR) control supported | Throttlehold supported | Gyro sensitivity adjustment supported | 8Ch RX.
Binding The binding process with the HK-8R 2.4Ghz Receiver is very easy. Just push bind button and power up the transmitter. Power up the receiver with the bind plug installed. A few seconds later the binding process is completed.
Programming Programming the HK-6X is very easy. By pushing left two buttons simultaneously you can browse the program menu. By pushing two other buttons you can change the settings.
Batteries The HK-6X runs on 8 AA batteries. The mass the batteries bring give the transmitter and nice and solid feeling. You can also run the HK-6X on a LiPo pack such as the Rhino 2620mAh 3S 11.1v.
The HK-6X has a throttle hold switch. When activated the motor will not spin on stick input. This switch can also be used for auto rotations.
When powering the transmitter in idle up mode, the transmitter will give alarm beeps and the display shows: IDLE UP. You have to switch to normal mode before the transmitter continuous. The power display shows how much juice is left in the transmitter battery and starts beeping when the voltage drops below 8.6V .
I have been using this transmitter for more then 2 years without any problems nor servo glitching. The HK-6X works flawless and has proven its reliability. As it seems the used materials are well chosen and are up to the job. Using a 3c LiPo did not harm the transmitter at all. It is a steady platform which can be used for simple 3 to 5 channel airplanes and 6 ch helicopters.
After 2 years of use I started to miss some features like: Dual endpoint settings, expo, differential mixing, other mixes, timer function, wider range for FPV, individual dual rates settings for aileron, elevator & rudder, option to change the tx antenna and a true failsafe on each channel
The HK-6X is a simple & reliable beginners transmitter. I have been using it happily for more then two years. To program it, you do not need a computer. The little display is well readable even on a sunny day. It suits all simple 3 to 5 channel airplanes as well as CP helicopters. When working with CP helicopters it requieres a very well done technical setup of the heli. The transmitter cannot make up for it due to lack of features and its simplicity. I never had real problems setting up a cp heli with this transmitter, having more features will make the job much easier and precise.
I also use a turnigy T9X. Click here to read about it.
I have found your web page through Nutcaze and his RC Guide. I think that you will remember me, We both have the HBFP and my wife is from Tilburg. I am starting to get the desire to build a larger helicopter and I like your approach. At first I was looking a upgrading later this summer with a ESky Blade CP, but after reading Wayne complain about it and then seeing this page I went to the Hobby King wb page. I know that I am way ahead of my self as far as flying skills but when it come to cost the Hobby King kits look good.
What do you think about the kit, HK450 CCPM 3D Helicopter Kit (Align T-rex Compat.) Ver. 2?
I was really happy to see your review about the HK-6X 2.4Ghz 6ch TX & RX; $60 dollars seems a bit better than $400!
Even better buy 2 at the same time. It gives you plenty of spares for just 30 bucks and you pay relatively less on shipping too. I gues that will be 10 extra massages for the wife and a nice candlelight diner.
Only 372 on stock you better hurry!
I like the HK 6X so much better then my stock radio. Compared to the 400$ TX they have a lot less functions. Just keep in mind that it is still a 60$ combination. Having said that I think it is a great deal. And I am very gladd I got it.
Hi, very good your website.. I have a problem with HK-6X because he no bind.. yes, no bind.. i change all parts and no bind… exist any type reset? because i press Bind in TX but nothing.. you can resolved my problem?
I got my KDS K-7x 2.4 GHz today it is the same as hk 7 channel I love this thing a big improvement in the joy of flying. Still waiting on the electronics for the CX450 AE I bought cant wate to fly it. I plan to use this TX with the CX 450 as well I bought all the electronics from HobbyKing I like those HXT 900 servo’s cheep price good servo I orderd a rx that is compatable with this KDS TX I can’t wate! Take it easy and thanks for stearing me twords a great remote.
I have a KDS K-6X / K-8R Transmitter/Receiver combo (I think it is the same tx/rx as the HobbyKing HK-6X. I believe my rx has died; I can put the tx into scan/bind mode (Blue RF light blinks) but nothing happens after that. Do you know if the Corona 2.4Ghz 6ch Receiver (V2 DSSS) will bind to the KDS K-6X tx???
Thanks for visiting my blog!
When you put the tx in bind mode you have to bind the rx with it by using the bind plug or by pushing the corresponding button on the rx at the same time as you power up the rx.
I recently got a report that the KDS TX did not bind with the Corona V2 DSSSS.
Good luck with it!
Thanks for the reply… My steps are as follows:
1. Put the Tx into scan/bind mode (Blue light blinks)
2. Put bind plug into rx
3. Power up rx (Red LED flashes) after a few seconds
4. Power down Tx
5. Remove Bind plug.
6. Power on Tx and it should be bound…
My rx’s Red LED never flashes…
The HobbyKing HK-6X tx / HK-8R rx seem to be identical to the KDS K-6X tx / K-8R rx, just repackeged for HobbyKing… Anyway…
Did you succesfully bind a Corona 2.4Ghz 6ch Receiver (V2 DSSS) to a HK 6X TX? Also, your recent report that a KDS tx did not bind to a Corona 2.4Ghz 6ch Receiver (V2 DSSS); do you know what model the KDS ts was???
Please , can help me ? I have buy an eurofighter 2000 from HK whit this radio control HK7Xv2 , binding it , and set the radio on delta wing , but the movement of aileron is very poor ( move up only 10-15° and move down , i think good ,40° ) how to setting good ? sorry for my english , i’m Italian .
Ho una radio Hobby King 7 canali e non riesco ad impostare l’ala delta. Mi spego meglio, mi trovo in modo delta accedendo dal menu, ma non rieco ad impostare il cabra e picchia perchè i canali 2 e 4 funzionano entrambi come alettoni.- Ho un po di confusione mentale e chiedevo mi potesse spiegare la procedura per far funzionare un’ala delta.- Grazie
Thanks for leaving a comment on my Blog.
My portuguees is very bad and even when translated by google I did not understand your question about the simulator. All I understood was that you have a simulator and that you have a question about using it.
So I am sorry I have no answer for you. Maybe you can try to ask your question again but with different words. Maybe I understand and can help. No garantees however as I still have to use google translate.
Note: I never used this transmitter for a simulator!
