How to install and get the PC software working for an Exceed CT6A or CT6B Transmitter. Turborix, Exceed are re-branded Flysky Transmitters so this install page works with all of those.

CT6B is available at HOBBYPARTZ, XHELI, NITROPLANES

(looking for info on the new T6 radio with LCD screen? Click here)

NOTE: 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 FIRST:
  1. Get 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.  
  2. Once you install the driver, it will appear in your Windows Device manager as a USB to Serial COM PORT.
  3. To view this you do click the following sequence :
  1. There you will see an SILabs CP210 or Prolific USB to serial device. Note the COM PORT it is on.
  2. Note that T6config does NOT like any serial port ABOVE Port 9 (Digital Radio 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 you plug into a different USB connection, Try to connect to the same USB connection on your PC or USB hub.

T6Config
  1. Install 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 )
  2. Plug in your cable and turn on Tx.
  3. Select your com port (a new com port would have been added during the driver install)
  4. Make sure it's communicating and click GETUSER BEFORE you make any changes.
  5. Save your settings to a default file so you can come back to it.
  6. Do 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.
  7. My default file is particular to MY helicopter, Your Endpoints and Subtrims are likely to be different.
  8. If you have an airplane, change the TYPE to ACRO instead of HELI 120
  9. MODE is your stick mode. USA uses Mode 2 typically.

Info on the Power Meter LED
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 < 10.4 Volt
 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!
