A little probing with a Quad

The biggest advantage of Winter is that you don’t have bath till just a few people say that u stinks! Umm, just the last week I got the parts for my quadcopter that I order from Hobbyking.  This was my first order and my first experience with the flying things, so I started up with a little goofing around at the forums and obviously went through a lot of tutorials.  Also, saw a few lists of components that people ordered at their first time.  But I had a few bents for a few things, so didn’t match with mine.   Then we (Shantanu and Saurabh) started reading the descriptions and googled a lot and finally came up with the following options.

Working with RC and Arduino: Part 1

The HK-T6A V2 is a classic 6-channel RC Transmitter, best option for starters.


The 4 channels are used for flying while rest 2 can be used for landing purposes. It is programmable as well. For that purpose one need to have the programming cable. It requires 12 V as the optimum voltage supply level. However, the status of LED shows the voltage level.


Red : Voltage < 9.1 V

Orange :  9.4 V < Voltage < 10.1 V

Green : 10.4 < Voltage < 12

I used 12 V adapter with 1 A current rating.

Its range is upto 1 km for LOS, which is quite sufficient. Another big point is its cheap receivers, which comes for 9 $ only.

That is enough for the blah blah.. 😛
