PPM signal support for FS-i6 radio

FlySky FS-i6 (or branded Turnigy TGY-i6) is a very decent 6 channel entry level RC radio system. But support for PPM (CPPM) standard is somehow not clear. I have no idea why manufacturer keeps PPM support data so well hidden. Anyway, here it is: how can I enable PPM on i6 radio system?

PPM signal is supported only on FS-iA6B (v2) receiver.

No PPM on FS-iA6 receiver

It is not possible to enable PPM signal on FS-iA6 receiver. So if you have simpler one, you would have to buy iA6B. Also, PPM signal is not enabled by default. To turn it on, you have to change radio settings:

  1. Open Menu and select “System setup” FS-i6 system setup
  2. Enter “RX Setup”FS-i6 RX setup
  3. Navigate to “PPM output”FS-i6 PPM Output
  4. And change it to “On”FS-i6 receiver PPM Output

This is all. From now on, FS-iA6B will output PPM 6 channel signal on port 1 labeled “PPM/CH1”.

You can get FS-iA6B from here here.

        PLEASE, will you tell me how I can gat a rssi signal out of this RX.. from PPM-naze32-micro minim osd. what prong do I use on the FS-IA6B to supply the minim osd the rssi signal to a micro minim osd?

  1. Can i use both 6 ch from the ppm and also the other pins as pwm at the same time?
    So i will have 11ch total?
    I update the transmiter to have 10 ch so i need more than 6 from the ppm
    Thanks

  2. If I enable PPM is PWM output disabled ? In other words: Can I have 2 different quads – one using IA6 RX with PWM and the other using IA6-B with PPM ? Thanks

  3. TenGonzález un eachine blade 185 que venía con una flysky i6. Actualicé el drone y ahora no enlaza con la emisora. Entro en el menú de la emisora y no sale la opción de activar y desactivar ppm. No existe. ¿que puedo hacer?

  4. Thank you. For 3 days I couldn’t get my ia6b to talk after binding. Now it works like a champ. Turned on the PPM setting.

  5. I am trying to bind my FS-IA6B to my 9XR Pro with a Fly Sky module FS-RM002 but cannot get it to do so. I have the Tx in PPM and hooking things up as they should be but no luck. I get the fast blink no matter what I do. Any ideas?
