So, after selling my Flysky 9x i am looking for a new Transmitter for my kwads well purchased a taranis x9d plus which had some defects so returned and got refund so now its out of stock…

came across this beauty small gaming console look radio transmitter. It is only sold on Hobbyking and might be soon cloned and sold on Banggood or Aliexpress as the other models have been done like the I6 and 9x.

Great radio for the money, for beginners and seasoned racers.

Good for start for the budget yes the Rx is big but can be managed well if you are buying or thinking to buy this product i would say rather have a look on Flysky or Turnigy i6 and i6s Transmitters which are cheaper and better in this matter yes they are big with more weight but does the work for you and is a standard Radio.

This is what i feel about the Turnigy Evolution Tx :

All below points are experienced from various videos and looking at the specs of the radio.

CONS:

    1. Sticks are just too short for hybrid pinchers to get full throttle and pitch even when screwed out to just 3 turns on the screw.
    2. No neck strap loop. Could be an optional extra part that fits or a 3d model for printing.
    3. Stick springs could to be stiffer.
    4. Would be nice to have momentary buttons/switch for executing readouts.
    5. There are no triming switches for the gimbals.
    6. Has only 3 aux switches which makes the Tx very limited to indoor Fpv or racer class.
    7. Cannot be used for AP platforms as you obvsly. need more switches and modes and pots.
    8. Would be great if it showed battery voltage instead of a battery image.
    9. No range test mode (Not sure if this is a hardware or software limitation).
    10. Supports only 5 models so if you have more than 5 you need to keep a spare Tx.
    11. Rx of this Turnigy Evolution is hard to find also most of it is out of stock.
    12. Rx is bigger than a x4r.
    13. Gimbals of Turnigy Evolution are smaller than Taranis 9xd plus.
    14. No expo no rates change option in Menu.
    15. Speaker isnt that loud.

Pros:

  1. small, light, cheap
  2.  decently constructed
  3.  pretty good gimbals, decent switches
  4.  rechargeable battery
  5.  basic voltage telemetry
  6. two internal antennas
  7.  usable touchscreen
  8.  come with receiver
  9. small in size light weight 345 gms.
  10. comes in white and black color.
  11. Good battery life.
  12. Inbuild lion battery
  13. backlight of gimbals change as you move the sticks.

Now this is what Hobbyking has on the product page .

Turnigy Evolution Digital AFHDS Radio Control System w/TGY-iA6C Receiver

The engineers at Turnigy have come up with another winner, the Turnigy Evolution. Designed with the FPV Drone flier squarely in mind, the Evolution features a striking new look and is amazingly compact. Its small size makes it very backpack friendly and the neat cover for the front of the controller keeps the face and gimbals safe during transportation.

The Evolution uses the solid and reliable 8 channel 2.4GHz Automatic Frequency Hopping Digital System (AFHDS 2A) spread spectrum technology, making it compatible with the iA6, iA6B, iA6C, i10 & i10B range of receivers. The system is supplied with the Turnigy TGY-iA6C Receiver for SBUS/IBUS and CPPM/PWM support.
Twin omnidirectional high gain antennas are built into the outer case to provide an even more secure radio link and to protect them from damage.

The ergonomically designed case makes for easy use of all controls. The switches and pots are all positioned for comfort and the adjustable length sticks can be tailored to your own requirements. Speaking of sticks, the high quality, ball bearing gimbals are clear and have color changing, programmable LEDs that can change color with the use of the sticks. There is a pop-up potentiometer that could be used for camera gimbal control. Two 3-position switches on the back can easily be set-up to change the flight modes.
A large monochrome backlit LCD Touch screen makes it easy to program and change the settings in both daylight and night-time.

5 model memories  make it easy when swapping from one model to next by simply selecting the appropriate model memory (assuming that you’ve bound the next receiver to the particular model memory first!)

Each transmitter and receiver has its own unique ID to prevent other RC systems from accidentally connecting to or interfering with the Evolution.
Each transmitter hops between 16 channels in order to reduce interference from other transmitters. There is even a mini USB port for easy charging via a power bank (power pack) or phone charger / USB charger / PC. This can also be used for updates (via PC) or to use the Evolution transmitter as a controller for your favorite RC simulator programs.

The Evolution comes in either Mode 1 and Mode 2 and is available in black or white for each mode.
