With truly free debugging, you can program a stable flight platform
The new version of the X6 uses an intelligent PID control algorithm installed without debugging which can achieve a very stable flight platform that proves to be a cost-effective multi-axis flight controller.
Auto-balance Flight & 3D Flight
The new X6 provides 2 primary flight modes. You can either incorporate stable level flight or enjoy the thrills and excitement of 3D flight.
To use the X6, you need a 4-channel receiver and then you simply connect the aileron, elevator, throttle and rudder channels to the corresponding pins on the controller. The X6 provides up to 6-motor outputs. The gyro gain can be adjusted by the knob. Futaba's S.Bus and S.Bus 2 are now supported by the new X6 series.
When the controller is powered on, press and hold down the button for more than 2 seconds which activates the setting menu. All settings are completed using the button. Please consult the manual for more details.

X6-L Setting Menu
In the case of using double-layer propellers, the blue circles indicate the upper propellers and the red for the lower ones. The arrows indicate the rotation direction of the propellers. Exchange any 2 of the 3 wires connected between the ESC and the motor if the propeller is rotating in the opposite direction.
The box contains receiver wires and 2 pieces of double-sided tape in addition to the X6 controller.
- Please write down the unique product serial number (S/N) on the bar code label when purchasing and keep stored in a safe place. It may be required in the the event customer support is needed.
- Before powering on, move the throttle stick to the bottom. The controller needs to perform self-calibration and throttle position calibration after you plug in the battery. The LED will keep blinking blue rapidly for about 3 seconds while calibrating, just be sure not to move the quad or the sticks until the initialization process is complete. The LED will keep blinking red rapidly alerting you if the throttle isn't at the lowest position when the power is on.
- Please ensure that all of the ESCs have been connected to the controller in their correct order and all of the propellers rotate in their correct direction. Please refer to the illustrations on the last page of the manual, otherwise it could lead to losing control or even a crash during the flight.
- You need to restart the controller after changing the receiver type to allow the new setting to take effect.
- The new X6 series supports a wide working voltage from 5 to 7.4V, you can use an HV receiver or servo directly.
- Radio control models are not toys. The propellers rotate at high speed and pose a potential risk to your safety and/or the safety of others. Be sure to fly in a wide open space far away from crowds. If you are a beginner please seek the advice of those with RC flying experience first.

I have used the CC3D flight controller, the KISS flight controller, as well as a few others. This Hobbyeagle X-6 is perfect for beginners and advanced quadcopter pilots who enjoy FLYING their aircraft rather than continuously setting and re-setting PID's. No file downloads or complicated setup's, easy straight forward plug and play installation. Unfortunately, it seems the Hobbyeagle X-6 flight controller is becoming much more difficult to locate. It seems apparent this controller may fall off the market so as a result of the difficulty of locating this controller, I have acquired a few extra Hobbyeagle X-6 flight controllers for future quadcopter builds.
Hobby Eagle X6 beginners flight controller
I have used a few of the HobbyEagle stabilizers for airplanes, and they work great. Now flying quads for about 3 years I seen this and thought I would give it a try. I have been using the CC3D on my F450 Quad and quite happy with it. This is apples and oranges in comparison though. The yaw rate is Very slow maybe around 200 degrees per second even with the dual rates set at 100% on my Spektrum DX6 Gen 2 Radio, It is very easy to install and swapped out the CC3D in about 30 minutes with final setup, I had to reverse Yaw and Roll on the radio as well. It did hover nicely, Roll angle is very low in Autobalance mode maybe 45 degrees or less. It is extremely docile in this mode. Throttle is a little slow to respond as well and took some getting used to, if your not careful and close to the ground you could bounce it off the ground. Acro mode did not change the Yaw rate, still to slow specially for Acro, and overall slow on roll and pitch, so corrections I found to be tedious and felt uncomfortable flying it. Also another review stated you could change between Autobalance and Acro with the radio. With the stabilizers for airplanes A3-L you can but, this one you cannot as it does not have the mode channel input, and you have to manually change it with the settings button. I was rather dissapointed with it and feel the price is a bit to high for what its worth. The CC3D is 10x better and has 3 flight modes you can set up and change to your liking, from docile to wild and priced less than $20. Although you do have to use the Ground Control Station (GCS) it is still very easy to use even for a beginner, this was the first flight controller I had and was no problem for me and I am no computer guru. If your a total newbie to quads and really dont want to use a computer, this is easy to setup and fly to practice orientation and slow flying but thats about it. If you stay in the hobby long enough you will eventually get a better flight controller and will have to use the computer, not difficult but a bit of a learning curve, so start watching YouTube videos and you will be fine. I fly Line of Site sport flying. I really like MotionRC they are a great hobbystore and there customer service is A+,Just wished you guys would start carrying more Quadcopter parts and accessories.
This flight controller is awesome!!!
I have a DIY Robocat 270 quadcopter. Originally I had installed a CC3D flight controller with LibrePilot,,, I spent weeks trying to get the setup (PID) tuning correct. I was having to use special LibrePilot downloaded software, it tied up my PC with cables and I never was able to get my quadcopter to fly and operate to my liking. Then one day surfing the internet for a solution I came across MotionRC and the X6 6axis flight controler. I knew it was my answer and so I placed an order for one. Once My HobbyEagle X6 6-axis flight controller arrived I promptly installed it and completed the setup. To my amazemant, from start to finish the complete installation and setup took 30 minutes. I took my Robocat 270 quadcopter out for a test flight. It came to a perfect stable hover straight from lift off on its first flight. I flew around for a few minutes and noticed it had a slight wobble. I adjusted the gain slightly and took another flight test. Perfect!!!! There is no other flight controller that compares to the HobbyEagle X6 6-axis flight controller. I will be ordering more of them as I will be building more quadcopters in the near future.
After reading a lot about setup for quads I found if you move cyclic stick forward both front props should speed up more. Then go left and left two props speed up and so forth. If not reverse your ail, rud ele in reverse menu until you get motors correct. The gain I have about 9 o'clock it seems more then that quad rocks way to much. For me dr is at 70% not 100%. I almost got cc3d but this is a winner for me. Very quick flight controller stable and easy setup.
I looked at this 30 times. Went back and forth with many flight controllers. Make sure all motors are turning correct direction. When I did test flight it did move to the right on it's own. When level Push and hold button and use option 5 let it calibrate and it's prefect. Raining here will monkey with DR setting and so on. I like the ease of setup didn't want to use PC and pray for setup process. And I use eagle products on my airplanes and they preform outstanding. Thanks MRC
