USB cable for HK-T6A transmitter near Cambridge, Waikato?

Postby mkuvy » Fri Feb 03, 2012 10:41 am

Hi. I need to reverse two channels on my HK-T6a (Hobby King 6ch) transmitter, and connecting it to a PC is the only way to do that. Anyone in Waikato, NZ, who has this USB cable [*]? Just need it for 10 minutes to reverse ailerons and rudder channels.

Of course I can order the USB cable from HK, but that will take couple of weeks to arrive, and I'm desperate to resume flying after 1+ month withdrawal :-).

Thank you!

If you really want you could do some diy electronics.
What you would would do is open up the case and go to the 3 wires that go to the rudder pointometer and swap the red and black wires. That seemed to work with me on my DIY ppm encoder.

That's a good idea, thanks! If I don't find the cable to program the transmitter in the next couple of days, I will try some DIY.

Obviously, I couldn't wait to fly again and did the wire swap. The whole procedure is trivial and takes 10 minutes. Dannyzz, thanks again, I have my wings back.
