(looking for info on the new T6 radio with LCD screen? Click here)
There are 2 types of Transmitters/Receivers. CT6A and CT6B. Although
the software and USB cable drivers dont' care, the Tx and Rx are not
compatible with each other. If you have a CT6A, you can't buy an Rx
that works with a CT6B.
Install Cable Driver
your USB cable driver working first. Both the SILabs and Prolific
drivers are contained in the T6Config download file below. SILabs is
the driver currently shipping with the CT6B. You want to install the
driver for the cable before plugging it in. If you don't know which one
you have, you probably have an SILabs if it is a new purchase.
Work on the USB cable install first, before moving on.
Once you install the driver, it will appear in your Windows
Device manager as a USB to Serial COM PORT.
To view this you do click the following sequence :
Click Hardware Tab
Click Device manager
Click the + next to PORTS
There you will see an SILabs CP210 or Prolific USB to
serial device. Note the COM PORT it is on.
Note that T6config does NOT like any serial port ABOVE Port
does not care). To change the port, within Device manager, Right Mouse
Click the Prolific or SILabs USB to Serial port then select Properties.
Now click Port Settings Tab and then the Advanced button. Change the
COM port to a lower Number. It's ok if it says its being used on this
list, but don't pick a port that is CURRENTLY in use within the Device
manager Ports list. Some PCs will change the serial port if
plug into a different USB connection, Try to connect to the same USB
connection on your PC or USB hub.
T6config.exe from the downloaded T6install.zip file. NOTE: Some People
reported that T6config does NOT work with Windows 7 64 bit, Other
people report it works fine (NOTE:The Alternative
programs are better than t6config )
Plug in your cable and turn on Tx.
Select your com port (a new com port would have been added
during the driver install)
Make sure it's communicating and click GETUSER BEFORE you
make any changes.
Save your settings to a default file so you can come back
not keep saving the same file name, you want to be able to revert back
to a previous file if you mess something up. Name them incrementally
Blueray1, Blueray2, etc.
My default file is particular to MY helicopter, Your
Endpoints and Subtrims are likely to be different.
If you have an airplane, change the TYPE to ACRO instead of
MODE is your stick mode. USA uses Mode 2 typically.
Note that the knobs and switches will operate as per the
operational video below
Info on the Power Meter
Voltage levels (tested by someone else) of the LED power indicator
LED steady green : SupplyVoltage > 10.8 Volt
LED steady orange: 9.4 Volt < SupplyVoltage <
LED steady red : SupplyVoltage < 9.1 Volt
It is ok to run NiMh batteries into the orange category but once it
gets down to the red you should replace IMMEDIATLY!
