Great article!
Just a question on the FS-ix6b , you have said it support SBUS but everything I can find says IBUS only.

Is there an updated firmware that does SBUS…I really want SBUS as I have a madcow that does SBUS and my RX doesn’t do it …from what I can tell



Hi Greg
To all intents and purposes ibus = sbus
Try it. you won’t be disappointed

Hi: This is an older post but I just found it today 6-27-2019. I received my Flysky FS-i6X Radio today from China. The firmware is dated: 2018-DEC-11, version 1.0 and the hard_ver is: V1.0
Would you know if there is a newer Version available…? I’ve been looking on the Internet but a lot are not from the MFG and I don’t want to Brick my Radio…! Thanks in advance…

I had a might of a google.
I couldn’t find a lot doesn’t look like flysky didn’t release any updates.

But i did find this bug fix which may be of some use to you.

I can’t vouch for if it works or not, so do some research before you try.
