Hobby King 4-Ch 2.4Ghz Radio and Receiver

This receiver is a pretty nice, low-cost unit.  Here's some notes about setting it up.

WiFi Warning - Laptop interferes with this transmitter!
  • I spent about an hour trying (unsuccessfully) to get things working.  Shutting off the  computer WiFi fixed everything!
  • When Plugging in USB, Windows will want to install a driver.  Let it search and install the default.
  • Under "Setting", USB will be "COM4".
  • Software is here. [add this]
  • Better software: Digital Radio by Stefano Grassi
  • Another alternative: TurboRix
  • Select this to start: System Setting/Stick/Mode 2
  • Hobby King video review and tutorial
