Recommended Radios - Fr Sky

Written by Hayden Daley - 23 June, 2016.
The most important aspect for any transmitter is maintaining a rock solid connection with the receiver. FrSky is well known for the frequency hopping ACCST technology taking advantage of the entire 2.4GHz band resulting in excellent range and reliability. FrSky knows many things can affect the connection between Transmitter and receiver so RSSI (receiver signal strength indication) is incorporated into all telemetry receivers. The X9E transmitter is continually monitoring the reception quality at the aircraft. The X9E will alert the pilot before signal quality becomes critical. This saves planes and makes the hobby much safer! 

In addition to RSSI, the X9E has other safety features. Receiver Lock allows you to lock a specific model in the transmitter to one and only one receiver. No more flying (crashing) with the wrong program selected. X9E has three different types of Failsafe. 1 - Hold last known commands, 2- Goto a programmed state (cut throttle, flaps down, etc. 3- No output. (Triggers flight controllers with "go home" feature.) The RSSI feature means you probably won't ever use the failsafe. Voice Alerts Just like having a copilot, the transmitter will give you voice alerts on speaker or through the headphone jack. Count down timers, low voltage warnings, landing gear down, thermal mode entered, etc. can all be set up with human recorded voice of your creation, or sound packages shared online from other hobbyists.

The open-source software for the X9E has been developed by hobbyist’s in the R/C community. The programmers of the transmitter’s firmware and companion software which runs on Linux, Windows, and Macintosh are very receptive to input and requests from users. There are no limitations based on marketing decisions. If you can think of it, chances are the X9E is capable of doing it.







The Frsky Horus X12S is the latest RC transmitter in the FrSky range and will be available to purchase now. Continuing the ground breaking approach, the Horus will feature top quality components and new features helping you make the most of transmitter technology, to be put on the waiting list for first notification of availability. Once the FrSky Horus supply becomes available we expect these to fly off our shelves (certainly before we have time to put them there) and demand will outstrip supply for a while, so be quick!
