I have a 2.4 gig Radiolink T6EHP 6channel radio. Ist query, can this be used for a boat (a Shannon Lifeboat). Two, the only instructions I can find online are for a T6EHP-E radio which state for OEM Helicopter only.I assume that these are two different radios. Three the instructions do not work on trying to re programme the radio I have.
Help please? Thanks, Mick

Mick
I can only answer question 1. YES
There are very few radios for model boats. Most are for planes or Helis or drones, BUT You can use any channel for any function, although vertical movement seems more intuitive for throttle and horizontal movement for rudder,

2.4ghz systems work for any model situation in today’s world, the limitations of specific channels and frequency’s are only applied to am/fm systems 40,27 and 35 MHz ....

There are issues with 2.4 systems in boats however as 2.4 has a hard time penetrating water surfaces, meaning should you fit a 2.4 to your boat it’s best to mount the receiver in the boat as high as possible. (Avoid using 2.4 in subs, that’s what the 40mhz systems are great for... Navy system)

Range can also be an issue depending on the unit you have... the radio links tend to be shorter range and when in a boat decreased further. However that said in a boat when u can’t see it you can’t control it either.... so just keep it in sight!

The other issue with 2.4 is they do require 6v constantly.... rechargeable battery’s sadly don’t do the job well enough ( they are actually 1.25v not 1.5 at best) so avoid using those.... if your having radio issues and it’s cutting out etc it’s either radio signal/distance or poor battery’s...

Just a heads up on that... radio links are a good option my father has two sets and many of my older club members use them... I opted for the spectrum set.... so my issues are different!

Thanks for the advice everyone, much appreciated. I still can't find any online instructions on how to programme and bind for the actual radio I have, and as I said, the instry tions for a slightly different radio will not work, so it looks like yet a other scrapper.

Normally I pop the bind plug in the battery/bind slot on the receiver and hold a bind button on the tx,... scrapping it sounds like a waste for not being able to find a manual ... 

Try these....
