FlySky Introduces its newest 6 channel 2.4GHz system, the FS-i6X which is an upgrade to the FS-i6.
Adopt AFHDS 2A (Automatic Frequency Hopping Digital System Second Generation) technology. Offering superior protection against interference while maintaining lower power consumption and high reliable receiver sensitivity.
Receiving data from temperature, altitude and many other types of sensors, servo calibration and i-BUS Support.
Multi-channel hopping frequency, hop between 16 channels (32 for Japanese and Korean version) to reduce interference from other transmitters.
Unique ID recognition system, each transmitter and receiver has its own unique ID to prevent interference.
Low power consumption, consuming as little as one tenth the power of a standard FM system, dramatically extending battery life.
The FS-X6B supports 6 channel PWM output, standard PPM output and i-BUS support for up to 18 channels alongside a reliable voltage sensor interface.
FS-X6B receiver fits for FS-i10, FS-i8, FS-i6, FS-i6s, FS-i6x, FS-i4, FS-i4x etc. FS series rc transmitter.This radio system uses a high gain and high quality multi directional antenna, it covers the whole frequency band. Associated with a high sensitivity receiver, this radio system guarantees a jamming free long range radio transmission.
Each transmitter has a unique ID, when binding with a receiver, the receiver saves that unique ID and can accept only data from the unique transmitter. This avoids picking another transmitter signal and dramatically increases interference immunity and safety.
This radio system uses low power electronic components and sensitive receiver chip. The RF modulation uses intermittent signal thus reducing even more power consumption.
AFHDS2A system has an automatic identification function, which can switch automatically from current mode between single-way communication mode and two-way communication mode according to the customer needs.
AFHDS2A has a built-in multiple channel coding and error-correction, which improves the stability of communication, reducing the error ratio and extending the reliable transmission distance.

A bit of a personal blurb on how I feel about my FlySky radio equipment.
About 4 years ago I started having signal issues with my JR 9×2. I had a near miss with an FPV flying wing, lost 2 planes, 1 drone and finally a helicopter to signal loss before I was willing to admit there was something up with my trusty 9×2. Not the radio’s fault, but rather the Spektrum module as switching back to the 35mhz module proved bullet proof. As many hobbyists would agree, this was one of JRs most successful, bullet proof radios of all time making it extremely popular with the RC community.
I could have simply replaced the radio module, but decided I wanted an upgrade with telemetry and a nice colour touch screen, but the JR/Spektrum, Hitec and Futaba Radio’s were simply out of my price league and I was not a fan of the direction JR had taken with their new design, look and feel, so I took the chance and replaced my trusty JR 9×2 with the FlySky i-10 radio at a 1/3 of the cost of the other big brand radios with similar specs. The other advantage was being able to swap receivers in my models affordably as the 6ch and 10ch receivers cost a 1/4 of the big brand receivers and of course I had approx. 30 models that needed kitting out over time… of which I have probably at this point swapped over 90% of all my models.
So now I personally make use of FlySky radio equipment in my own 90 size Heli’s, 20cc planes, drones and everything else in between and have yet to experience a brownout, physical failure or loss of signal in the last 3-4 years I have used it and enjoy the signal feedback, battery voltage (Receiver or Flight pack), temp and RPM sensors. I stand by FlySky because of their reliability first, and bang for buck second.
