    Son got a Blade 130X without a controller and wants to use his Align T6 instead of the recommended Spectrum DX6i.

    The Align T6 came with the Align TREX 450.

    We went through the binding procedure with a tech from Horizon Hobbies where he bought the Blade, but it didn't work. We also looked through the Align manual and only found how to set it up with the TREX. Nothing more general for other helis.

    See the website address above where there's minimal discussion about "clicking on system" and "adding a transmitter" for this specific problem. We are too new to understand what to do. Do we hook it up to a computer?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Don't know anything about the controllers but make sure he is careful when flying it, I have a buddy that had one that was causing problems and he put his hand down to adjust it and the spinning rotor hit his hand, it tore his hand up bad, and still doesn't have full use of it

    Just got off the phone with a guy who flies RC helicopters all the time and he said the receivers are different. So we're going to have to pick up a Spektrum transmitter to work with the Blade. The Spektrum will come with an extra receiver that we can put in the Align heli. Then the Spektrum will work with both and we can sell the Align transmitter supposedly.

    Thanks for the help.

    Glad to see you gave up on that tree house. Bad idea.
