10 channels for FlySky FS-i6 radios

This news might be not super fresh, but somehow it missed my attention. There is a good news for all owners of FlySky FS-i6 radios: there is an unofficial firmware that turns this cheap 6 channel radio into 10 channel one. Of course, there is a small catch, or even a few of them:

  • All 10 channels are available as PWM only using FS-ia10 receiver
  • PPM on FS-ia6B is still only 6 channels wide. To have all 10, iBus connection to flight controller or iBus to PPM converter required
  • PPM output still only on FA-ia6B and FS-ia10 receivers. No support for FS-ia6 RX module

New firmware, as well as few additional mods, is available on GitHub. I did not checked that, since I no longer own FS-i6 radio, but I've read good oppinions: it is stable and functional. So, who will give it a try?

  1. Hello!
    I flashed new firmware from that repository and find out that fs-ia10 receiver sends via PPM only 8 channels, but over i-bus there are all 10 channels.

    And I have a question – does anybody try to use booster with this radio?

  2. Hi, I did the upgrade and it seems to work just fine but I am not able to set end points and subtrim for channel 7-10
