This tutorial explains how to setup the R9M TX module and R9 Mini receiver in Betaflight. The R9M is a long range module that operates on 900MHz band. It’s compatible with most Frsky’s radios including the Taranis X9D-Plus, QX7 and Horus X10.
Spoiler alert: I have used all these radios for a long time, and I personally prefer the X9D Plus over the QX7. However there are features in the QX7 and X-Lite that might interest you more, so bear with me until the end of this article.
I’ll explain how to fix the issue with buzzing coming from the Taranis radio speaker. This hack seems to work on the original X9D+ but doesn’t work for the 2019 version.
Here is an overview of the Frsky R9M-Lite module, and we will test the latency and see how it compares to the TBS Crossfire. Both are great 900MHz RC systems for long range and many are hesitating which one to get. With latency being one of the main considerations we hope you find the test useful.
In this Taranis upgrade mod episode, I will install the back holder and anti-slip pads, as well as replacing the neckstrap hook, switch sleeves and trim buttons.
Just want to share with you how I did the Taranis X9D antenna mod – replacing the original 2dB antenna with a RP-SMA pigtail, making the antenna removable so I can use a 5dB dipole antenna, or 2dB whenever I want.
Inside the Taranis X9D+ and QX7, there is a built-in RF module, they too have their own firmware. In this tutorial I will show you how to update the firmware on the Taranis internal RF module.
In the newest version of OpenTX, a new dialog box has been added when you try to bind a Frsky receiver to your Taranis. There are four options, “Channel 1-8 or 9-16, and Telemetry On or Off. This article will explain what these options mean.
Long range radio systems using 900MHz including the Frsky R9M and TBS Crossfire typically use a single dipole antenna on the receiver. The optimal antenna positioning can be different from traditional 2.4GHz systems with diversity monopole antennas on the receivers.
The Frsky Taranis X-Lite TX has the shape of a gaming controller. It’s much smaller than traditional radio transmitters, the compact size means you can take it virtually anywhere. In this review we will check out the build quality, features, and how to set up the X-Lite for the first time.
