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?
