If you have any projects that you want to get done and or assembled, then pcb way is going to be a great choice. I’Ve been using them for the past couple years and by far one of the best services i’ve used, whether you’re, a hobbyist and or professional alike, so definitely check the links down below hey. What is up guys and welcome back so in today’s video we’re. Taking a look at an all new radio from eachine and it’s called the tx16s now at first, when i received it, i was just like um let’s see how that’s going to go and how it is. And honestly, it has become my favorite radio, which is pretty insane. So this is not a ish it’s eachine branded, but it’s made by radio king. So the support would be from radio king as far as i believe, the amount of features you have in here and the overall build quality and everything you it’s crazy, it’s, a premium premium remote here and even the packaging or the carrying case they provide, is actually Really nice, though it’s kind of huge, but it will definitely protect your radio now let’s, take a look at this. First of all, you get a huge fat screen here that could give you just about everything you ever want and what’s really crazy with. This is the only other radio i think i have of this nature. Currently is the efr sky x10 horus, which is the 500 fr sky radio, which has the same screen, but it is unbelievably sluggish.
This one is so responsive, which is absolutely beautiful. Look at this absolutely beautiful the response that one was. You could totally see the sluggishness the frame drops in that one. This one is just a joy to use and um it’s, just it’s, actually really nice like they hit this one out of the park completely for one here. What we do get is let’s just say, not the the hall effect gimbals here we do get a multi protocol module built inside and what that means is you could be able to fly to fr sky fly sky, the chinese toy spectrum, just about everything. If you could figure out the name code for it, even the you know the the cheap uh chinese drones. You know the toy drones. You can do anything even the cars and helicopters as well, so that is out of the box absolutely gorgeous and another thing. What we get is we actually get a proper, usb type c connector. Here there you go right there, so you’ll be able, i believe you could charge and also be able to play your simulators, which is really really great and the antenna here i don’t think, is detachable currently um it could be, but no i don’t think so, which Is really nice that’s really good, so you don’t burn the multi protocol module that i like, and if we look at the back here we have a module bay, which is really really great, so you can put your crossfire in there and if we open the battery Part here we can actually put up to a 2s now they do provide you with this holder here.
If you wanted to use – and as you could tell, it is somewhat loose, but they have combat that issue with this little foam thing, which keeps it relatively stable and doesn’t make any rattling, unlike fr sky stuff, which also adds to that premium. Feel now on the sides here we also do have rubber and right here we have these little rubber grips, so you can actually have really good, solid grip on this thing, which again is really nice and it does feel very premium and another thing it might might Not be a big deal, but i really like to have the page up and page down to be in dedicated buttons. This is actually really nice very useful and it’s much much more efficient. In my opinion, now in terms of switches there’s more than enough for any quadcopter, so yeah that’s something kind of nice and it might be a bit overkill for a quadcopter, but some people might end up using some of these, so let’s actually go through these. So all the topmost switches here are three position switches and we have two more switches in the back this one right here is a momentary switch, and this one right here is a double switch, so it’s just two position switch here. We also do have two potentiometers here now they do have a little bit of jitter. Sometimes i think we could probably see that in the home screen here and uh yeah let’s just go ahead and check that out they’re going to be those ones down there.
As far as i remember, not always you get jitter, but sometimes you get jitter on them just a little tiny bit here, especially these little side ones right here. We also do have two little potentiometers or sliders. If you want to call them, they do have a dent in the middle, so you can actually feel where the center is, and sometimes when you center it it’s, not really the best, but um it’ll get the job done uh. If you really need that. But if you need something super super precise, these are not really made to be super precise, because the throws are actually very uh short here. So if you’re looking for something more precise, i i probably want to look into something else, but if you’re just looking for something with a slider that’s going to work just fine, it has enough resistance to somewhat be precise, but that middle dent kind of removes that Precision out of the equation, because, as you’re going up it like locks into place – and you don’t know how much pressure you need to pop it out and just yeah yeah, you get the idea there um so that’s, something just to take a note of here. We also have these right here, so this is kind of like a six position switch. Basically, so you can set that up to whatever you want and uh you can play around with this and do all kinds of crazy cool stuff.
With that, you can actually see it change there every time i click one, i think that’s pretty awesome. Actually i don’t know if i’d ever use it, but it’s really nice to know that. I have it here now in terms of the software it’s running open tx, which basically has everything you’re ever used to and everything that is completely compatible with everything we’re used to, which is really great. So if you want a gps telemetry, you wanted all kinds of telemetry. You could easily access that and it’s really nice screen. The screen is really used if you’re, probably doing some uh airplane stuff, or you know, rc wings, because in our quadcopter we usually have our goggles on. So we never really see the screen, but maybe for debugging purposes. It would be really nice, or maybe just uh when you do some beta flight configuration through here, i think, would be really great as well. It also does have haptic feedback here, and we also have something on the bottom here, which i forgot to mention uh. So if we look at the bottom here sorry about that, i forgot to mention that the bottom is where you would actually charge from it’s a usbc charger here and we also do have an sd card. It actually comes with an sd card by the way. So i didn’t have to do anything there, which is really nice, and we have two ports to actually flash receivers, which is really really great.
We have one 5x tx and rx and we have another one which has actually. I think this is an ftdi adapter. This is a 5 volt ftdi adapter with the ctr, which is the reset switch, so that’s actually really crazy. So this is a four and this is a five wow that’s that’s pretty awesome here so yeah you, you can do quite a this – is a full featured uh receiver here, uh transmitter, sorry about that. This is a full feature transmitter here now i forgot to mention the gimbals here, so the gimbals are hall effect, at least the one that i have here and it does have the ratcheting on the throttle, which is my favorite, because i could just be so precise And know how much i went up and went down uh some people don’t like that which you could completely disable, but i i truly love that that that was like the signature thing of fr sky that i truly loved. But now that i see it here, uh it’s, just oh it’s – really nice yeah, i’m gon na see if you could hear it. I i really love that, just like on every click, you could kind of feel that you could perfectly center specific things. Uh again, there are hall effect gimbals, which is really nice, and you can actually modify the tension and everything from uh from the outside, which is again really really great. And if we look at the top here, i don’t know if i mentioned this, but you also have some mounting points.
I think these are probably three millimeter uh screws you could put in here and mount some stuff. Maybe a screen or i don’t, know what you’d want to mount, but this is really crazy and this is really awesome that they’ve done that um something i really like, and if you wanted to remove this plastic thing to bring in your own thing, you could totally Do that with a couple screws, you could just completely remove that, and maybe, if you wanted your own custom setup in the back that comes down and holds it up like that, you could also add that as well now the screen is not touched, so don’t think The screen is touched, and actually let me show you the carrying pouch case thingy, so um it’s foam, as you can tell right here, and if we actually open this thing, they do provide this. How you actually get it in the box? You get this, you get a free receiver, you get a screen protector and you get a usbc cable and you also get some extra springs and some extra screws in case you screw up or lose some of the things for the gimbals here so which is really Nice that they’ve actually done i’ve never seen that before to be honest, uh, so that’s, something i really like, and the overall fitment inside is absolutely gorgeous, because you definitely know that your receiver is going to be protected, no matter what the hell happens and that’s.
Something really really nice, i don’t know i’ll, go ahead and show you that right now, so we just drop it in there. We go and you don’t even need gimbal protectors. So we could just put that in there and it’s not going anywhere and it’s not going to get hit and it’s not going to break, which is i mean if you’re paying 185 bucks, you kind of really want to protect it kind of take care of it And try to have it last as long as possible. Um this by far is, is a really great value. Uh receiver, and it just has everything you might need. They did not skip on anything that is needed from a receiver and um it’s, just it’s really nice to look at it has a really nice feel and doesn’t feel cheap and uh feels like it has some pretty good, build quality and i think we’re going to Be expecting a lot more of this or it’s going to be really hard to beat this now i mean i don’t know what other features you might want, but yeah. This is an absolute beast of a radio and i definitely recommend because i’ve been using it for the past two weeks and um it’s just been flawless and the range seems to be very well for for what i usually do. So, in that perspective, i definitely recommend it guys check the links down below those great support, the channel and, if you’re interested in picking one up go ahead and do it, you have nothing to lose hurry up before the chip shortage actually takes over and everything goes Up in price and well that’s, it guys um.
