FlySky Model FS-CT6B, basic 6ch 2.4GHz

My first 2.4G radio, which I bought about 4 years ago, was intended to replace a very old 72MHz 4 channel radio, and get flying without spending too much money.

I bought a FlySky branded radio, 6 channel, Model FS-CT6B, which had many excellent reviews. Has no LCD. Setup is done from a computer program via a USB interface. I bought an aftermarket setup program for $2, which is easier to use than the one provided by the manufacturer. I put NiMH cells in it, and paired it with a wall wart power supply from my junk box for easy overnight charging. Bought it from a US firm, since it was almost the same price as from China, with much faster delivery. Bought the batteries from the same firm; much cheaper than locally.

For my simple, entry level glider purposes, it has worked fine. It is also suitable for helicopters, of which I have a couple. One heli has it’s own 2.4G radio, so I have not tried this one with anything except gliders.

As a techie person, I would also like to do some experimenting with telemetry from the plane, but have not done so yet. I might upgrade to a transmitter with integrated telemetry reception, but would do a lot of review first, so no opinion yet. If I were to experiment with on-board flight controller, I might also want more channels, but not there yet.
