Default Exceed RC 6-Ch 2.4Ghz Transmitter w/ Receiver

Hello All

Is the TX & RX good enough for a glider? Exceed RC 6-Ch 2.4Ghz Transmitter w/ Receiver

Also has any one bought one, does it come with a TX battery and charger or that is how the price is so low?

I am lost with the new radios!

Thanks RC Redhots

It's cheap because they make 10000s of them (FlySky-cn.com).
Sold under any ones brand that will buy in quantity.
Bundled with RTF planes and copters.

It depends on what you are going to fly with it? If you have an expensive plane, it's like a motorcycle helmet.

$20 helmet for a $20 head.

I am with you on the 20 dollar head.

My son raced motor cross for 5 years 350 to 400 dollar helmets 350 boots, But I am only talking about a 50 dollar scratch built glider.
So my guess it would be oK!

Yeah sounds like it'll be fine. Just be sure to range check it as I'm not sure how much distance you're looking to fly.

This is an independent review of its 4 channel and 9 channel siblings:
http://www.rcmodelreviews.com/hobbykingrc.shtml
Generally speaking they are a bargain. For issues with quality control on such mass produced products, you are best to buy from a local outlet who have a warranty. They are available through mail order outlets like Hobby King but the cost of freight makes return expensive. However if you are already ordering lots of other stuff from them (like cheap servos such as the excellent HXT900) then don't worry too much and get extra receivers for $15! The extensive thread on RCGroups will deal to any queries you may have and fixes for problems.
The range won't be a problem.
See the fix for LiPo protected transmitter batteries on the above thread. Basically they have strangely chosen to run them conventionally on 8 AA cells rather than the correct 5 volts they require.
