For long range flying, RC links is just as important as your FPV video link. In this review we will have a look at the Frsky R9M and TBS Crossfire – two popular TX modules options that are compatible with the Taranis transmitters.
FPort is the latest RC serial protocol that brings a few improvements over the existing RX and telemetry protocols. In this article we will take a look at the advantage of FPort, and how to set it up with Betaflight flight controllers in your mini quad.
There are many transmitter options available for mini quads. While many would recommend a high end transmitter, beginners might choose to save a bit of cash on selecting a TX. This is completely understandable when you don’t know if the hobby is really for you, and this is where the FlySky range comes in.
Frsky has just released a new radio receiver, the R-XSR, that might replace your XSR or X4R for good for people who own a Frsky transmitters like the X9D and QX7.
There are a whole range of Frsky receivers on the market and we have rounded up the ones suitable for mini quads and micro quads in this article. We will explain the differences in spec and hopefully it can help you choose the one for your next build.
In this article we will show you how to flash/update firmware on your Frsky receivers such as D4R-II, X4R-SB, XSR and XM+. This is useful when you have mismatched firmware that prevents you from binding, or you might simply want to update to the latest firmware version.
FrSky XSR-M is a smallest SBUS/CPPM Radio Receiver offering full range and Smart Port telemetry recently released.
The XM+ radio receiver is a tiny SBUS diversity RX from Frsky. It’s insanely light weight making it a great alternative to X4R-SB and XSR RX for micro quad builds. In this post we will show you the features of XM+ and how to use it.
A new Frsky receiver option for light weight and tiny mini/micro quad builds – the Furious Mini RX! It’s even smaller than XSR!
For radio receiver, there are a few output signal formats. The traditional and also most common type of RX signal is the PWM and basically PWM requires 1 cable per channel. PPM is now getting more and more popular, because it can handle all 8 channels in 1 signal wire.
