One thing for would-be RC tankers to bear in mind, is that transmitters really need to have spring-loaded, self-centring (real English spelling :D ) gimbals. Most TXs are set up for flying machines, and these require a throttle that is essentially static, after being moved. Thus, they don't have both gimbals set up as self-centring.
Your Flysky will probably need a little kit to enable self-centring. (Usually a spring, together with a small lever). Like this: https://heng-long-panzer.de/en/Fly-Sky- ... ition.html

I've just ordered the somewhat pricey Taranis Q X7, and this has both gimbals as self-centring by default. :) Hope this all helps :thumbup:

I use a FlySky i6X, purchased from tankbear, which came with the necessary bits which I fitted myself. Before that for a long time I used an ordinary FlySky i6 with no self centering on the throttle. I got used to it. I just had to be careful not to knock the stick.

Hi all connected all the electrics up and could not get the thing to recognise the controller. tested with an old fm system I got and everything works fine. To be honest I know nothing about the digital systems any ideas folks?.

Did you bind the receiver with the radio?

Perhaps this will help, Various radio/receiver combinations have different and sometimes surprising ways of binding one to the other,
When all else fails go to U-Tube and type in the details of your radio,
You will almost always find a tutorial which will take you by the hand and help you to solve your problem.

This is probably asking the stupid question, but have you got the correct receiver? The T6 uses a different protocol from the i6. Can you post a photo of your receiver? I have never had a problem binding the i6.
