The inexpensive T6A Radio Transmitter requires a PC cable to modify any of the channel variables including mixing and servo reversing.  (Download the T6 Manual.)

The program is free and can be downloaded here: (includes WinXP driver and T6config program).
If you are running Vista, you will need to install this driver instead: Vista-Driver.  For Windows 7 and 10: Win7-Driver.

The program we supply in our transmitters is hk-t6a-Viper-mixed-R2
Or if you prefer tank steering: hk-t6a-Viper-tank-R1 (this also allows both Ch5 and Ch6 to be used)

Instructions for installation:

Do not plug anything in yet.

1. Install the driver (CP210x Driver Installer)

2. Plug the programming cable into a usb port. Windows will detect it and install its own drivers.

3. Install T6config.

4. Open your Control Panel and open System->Hardware->Device Manager. Expand Ports and make note of the "Prolific USB to Serial" COM Port.

5. Plug the cable into the back of the transmitter and turn it on.

6. Run T6config. Select Setting and set the COM Port to the one you noted before.

7. Verify that moving the transmitter sticks moves the green bars. Don't click anything yet.

8. After verifying it is communicating, click "GETUSER". (Important! Making changes before clicking GETUSER will mangle the transmitter settings.  Not a problem if you are just loading a saved program.)

9. Save your settings right away so you can come back to them if you need to.

10. Now you can start modifying settings OR load our default file "hk-t6a-Viper-mixed-R2" into the transmitter by clicking Open and selecting that file. It will load into the transmitter immediately.

Worked as advertised

- 02nd January 2018

Worked as advertised. Programmed my HK-T6A easily.

Perhaps not very special is the cable itself, but the instructions, drivers, software, & mixing program provided on FingerTech's page were what made the programming super simple & super fast!

A Must-

A Must-Have for HK-T6

- 26th October 2015

The HK-T6A is a terrible radio in the grand scheme of things. However, for $20 it is a fantastic radio. With the programming cable, you can adjust your mixes, end-travel points, set up tank or internally mixed steering, and all those other fancy things Spektrum will charge you $150 to do. The programming cable is perhaps the most useful thing that FT sells, especially with their clear-cut and easy to use guide.

Very happy thank you for your fast Delivery !!

Fantastic Service and quick delivery

I searched all over the internet for the HK-CT6B cable and couldn't find it anywhere and finally stumbled on here. I would highly recommend dealing with fingertech robotics, they do what they say they do.

What more can you ask for?

Great work, looking forward to doing more business with you.

Thank You

Perfect product. There is a mistake in the description, actually it uses CP210x driver (not PL2303). [Webmaster: Updated, thanks!] For up to date driver use the following link:
