The 6-channel DX6i uses the same full range DSMX™ technology found in the Spektrum DX8 and includes an impressive list of programming features for both airplanes and helicopters that are simple to access and use. The DX6i is compatible with all existing Spektrum aircraft receivers. Whatever kind of flying you do, the DX6i can be adapted to most any model in your existing collection that requires six channels or less.

The programability is very important as it can completely change the feel of your aircraft to your preferences. If you are flying a Blade helicopter, then all the programing parameters can be found with the helo or online. There are also some ebooks I have found which have good information on what each function does. This is important as the manual is lacking in why or why you would or would not want to do something.
So the place to start learning to fly an RC Helicopter is with this radio and the Phoenix R/C Pro Simulator Version 3.0. Put your hours in practicing maneuvers on the sim. After you've got those down, unplug, your radio (unfortunately, as of right now the Blade mCP X requires collective reversing for DX6i while in the sim it uses normal collective so you will have to change models.), change models to the live model and fly.
For the price this radio has some amazing features. I have paid a lot more for a far less capable radio.
The 6i feature set is pretty basic for a computer radio, with only two mixes and 10 models, and the two-menu system driven by a single axis roller is clumsy. Some of the features are pretty limited in how they are implemented, like simple two position flaps, only 5 point pitch and throttle curves, and no LCD back-lighting making it hard to see at dusk/dawn when the winds are usually calmest.
There are no advanced features like flight conditions, servo speeds, or voltage telemetry. But it will bind with DSM-protocol Ultra Micros models, making it useful if you like to fly those.
Note that newer DSMX based DX6i's sometimes have difficulty binding to DSMX receivers. There has been a recall, but many report continued problems. I have a continuing bind problem with my newest DSMX DX6i with about 1/3rd of DSMX receivers, seemingly randomly. My DSM2 and OrangeRX receivers have not been a problem, but that could be lucky. My Orange RX receivers seem to work best, with the longest range and most reliable function.
The price is nothing special.
The biggest problem is that the cheap plastic trim buttons break pretty quickly. Replacement parts are not sold, but there are $30 aluminum tabs being sold by a third party on ebay. Worse, the trim tabs break in one direction at a time, so if you trim too far in one direction and then try to reverse the trim, you can't. This makes a plane or helicopter hard to fly and/or land.
Spektrum knows about the trim flaw because the DX8 shipped with upgraded aluminum buttons. So far they refuse to address this important DX6i, DX5e, and DX7 safety issue.
(A computer radio is NOT needed for the basic orientation skills, like nose in, where the controls are reversed from your point of view- any cheap Syma coaxial or even a WL Toys V911 or V949 is all you need for learning orientation!)
UPDATE: I owe this fine radio a big thank you; it reminded me that, whether you are a First-timer or an Old Timer, the joy of RC is all about control! And it protected all my investments well.

It works great but it was a used transmitter - had models programmed on it and the plastic was removed from the screen.Published 11 months ago by mrdale2002
Great transmitter, is adequate for my model inventory of 6 models. Display is unreadable in low light, so I installed a backlight and now am very satisfied. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Newton C. McMurry
This was an upgrade from a DX5, and I am very happy with this transmitter. The ability to program multiple models turned out to be more valuable than I realized.Published 13 months ago by DavidS
