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.
By simply updating the firmware on your Crossfire Micro TX module, you can increase the maximum output power from 100mW to 250mW. I will show you how in this post.
I don’t normally fly FPV with audio on, but thanks to my friend Gianpa’s generous gift – I am going to check out the TBS Steele earbud and share my thoughts about this product.
We will test and compare the latency of Frsky R9M-Lite with that of the TBS Crossfire. Both are great 900MHz RC systems for long range and many are having trouble deciding which to get. With latency being one of the main considerations we hope you find the test useful.
The Frsky X-Lite has an external module bay that is too small to fit standard size JR modules including the TBS Crossfire. Are we giving up that easily? HELL NO! A few people have been taking the X-Lite apart as soon as they received the the first batch, and trying to find out whether they can get it working.
The TBS Oblivion is a pre-built racing drone. According to Team black Sheep, it’s designed with usability and durability in mind. They also claim the Oblivion has a top speed of 120Km/h and up to 11 mins of
flight time (hover time). But is it really worth spending money on? Let’s take a look.
LQ and RSSI can be confusing for first time TBS Crossfire users. In this tutorial I will try to explain what the differences are between LQ and RSSI in Crossfire. I will also show you how to set it up in Betaflight and OpenTX on the Taranis TX to monitor your link quality and range.
In this review we will check out the TBS Groundsation, a 2.4GHz video receiver for long range FPV flying with a built-in screen and many more other features.
This simple guide explains how I setup TBS Crossfire with my Taranis X9D Plus in Betaflight, how to connect and configure Crossfire receiver, how to bind, how to setup LUA script, etc. The process should be similar in other Frsky radios.
For long range flying, RC links is just as important as your FPV video link. In this review we will have a look at some long range RC options: the Frsky R9M and TBS Crossfire. These are the two most popular TX modules compatible with the Taranis X9D and QX7 transmitters.
The TBS PowerCube Elite Bundle comes with a flight controller, video transmitter and a power distribution board. The combo is designed to connect and setup effortlessly together in a compact package.
