Flksky CT6 series transmitters are good choice for low budget RC adventure. But unfortunately the online support is minimal as many professional hobbyists don’t write on this. During this two post I will go through the setup process STEP UP STEP.
The transmitter I selected in is 6 channel radio control system FlySky CT6 ( FS-CT6 ). The series has similar versions of FlySky CT6A ( FS-CT6A ) and FlySky CT6B ( FS-CT6B ). Since the transmitter FM, there is no need of binding for CT6A.
The transmitter I purchased was around US $40 with shipping from a Chinese eBay seller. The required software was supplied with the purchase but there was no manual. The manuals had to found online. The site of the manufacturer is www.flysky-cn.com (although manuals say it is www.flyskychina.com the correct one is above).
The manuals, required software and other help provided by the manufacturer can be downloaded here.
For Flksky CT6, CT6A or CT6B you need to install the CP210xVCPInstaller in the Windows_2K_XP_S2K3_Vista folder. For any other transmitter with serial port output transmitter use PL-2303 Driver Installer. The step by step installation is as follows:
‘Before’ plugging in the transmitter install the CP210xVCPInstaller in the Windows_2K_XP_S2K3_Vista for Flksky CT6, CT6A or CT6B (FS- CT6, FS- CT6A or FS- CT6B ).
CP210xVCPInstaller is for the CP210x single-chip USB-to-UART Bridge. In simply this is the USB cable like thing provided with the transmitter. This converts data traffic between USB and UART formats. This chip can be connected to any UART to provide instantaneous USB connectivity. Software drivers are supplied free by Silicon Labs.
Plug in the USB cable to the computer. The cable only itself is enough and do not connect the other end to the transmitter. Let windows install the drivers.
Install T6Config provided in the software folder. Make sure the only installation option is selected.
Go to Device Manger in Control Panel to find the correct COM port. Refer the following image. In my case it is COM7.
Plug in the other end of the USB cable to the transmitter. Switch on the transmitter. Launch T6config by clicking the icon.
In T6config click on ‘setting’ button. In the drop down list select the correct COM port noted above.
Move the sticks and you will see the changes on screen. Do all necessary setup tasks.
