Frsky Taranis & L9R

A high quality transmitter, upto 16 channels.

06/27/13 Synopsis: We were looking for a transmitter that can maintain a rock solid connection with the receiver during missions. FrSky is well known for the frequency hopping ACCST technology taking advantage of the entire 2.4GHz band resulting in excellent range and reliability.  The Taranis transmitter is continuallymonitoring the reception quality at the aircraft. Taranis uses RSSI (receiver signal strength indication) incorporated into telemetry receivers. it will then alert the pilot by voice before signal quality becomes critical. This saves aircrafts or in most situation helps the pilot in making better decisions.  Review begins Oct 2013, flight test scheduled.  Learn how to setup 6 flight modes switches [here]

FrSky L9R receiver is the new long range unit from Frsky and offers up to twice the range of the standard X series receivers.  It should be noted that L9R is a non-telemetry receiver and therefore not Smartport or Data Hub compatible.  Operating Range: approx. 2 times that of X-series receivers

Compatibility: FrSky X-series Module (XJT) etc in LR12 mode (Switch 1 is OFF, Switch 2 is ON) FrSky Taranis X9D in LR12 mode. L9R receiver does not work with FrSky V8, D8, and D16 Mode.


Review of FPV: First-person view (FPV), also known as remote-person view (RPV), or simply video piloting, is a method used to fly a radio controlled model vehicle from the driver or pilot's view point. Most commonly it is used to pilot an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or a radio-controlled aircraft. The vehicle is either driven or piloted remotely from a first person perspective via an onboard camera, fed wirelessly to virtual reality goggles or a video monitor. More sophisticated setups include a pan-and-tilt gimbaled camera controlled by a gyroscope sensor in the pilot's goggles and with dual onboard cameras, enabling a true stereoscopic view.
