The second one is a Spektrum but not sure which one, it’s definitely not an original DX7, I know that.
trying to place the six pin trainer socket on the first one but I can’t quite remember at the moment.

I'm guessing the first one is a Futaba 6EX?

Second one is a Spektrum DX6?

Third one is Taranis X9D.

Forth one is possibly a JR tx - 388S?

That's because all the cost of the transmitter goes into the hardware. As it uses OpenTX, there is no cost involved for the software. Its a win-win for the user.

Just noticed the last one looks to be 2.4GHz from the antenna lead so not a JR388S!

I.m not being fair with last one unless you own a Honeybee or similar helicopter it is an E_sky 4channel pretty well made for low cost tx

So thanks for taking part in a bit of fun . While repairing one of them I was struck by the poor hardware for the price in one. The Taranis 9plus third picture is a lovely tidy well made big of kit with ball race gimbals all wiring nice and neat with wiring dressed and tied do excellent soldering well worth the money I paid for it

In order as identified

Futaba 8j

Spectrum dx6i

Taranis 9plus

4channel E-Sky
