Frsky released a new Taranis X9D+ 2019 radio! It has the same classic X9D+ shell with upgraded hardware and additional features. But is it as good as the original, and should you upgrade? Let’s find out!
When I was wondering why Jumper took down the product page for the T16, I discovered they are about to release a new radio – the Jumper T16 Plus.
Here is a step by step tutorial walking you through how to setup the Jumper T16 radio for the first time. It explains every aspect of using the radio, from user interface, software to hardware, as well as beginner to advanced tips and tricks.
Although the Jumper T16 is running JumperTX firmware which is forked from OpenTX, firmware update procedure is completely different. Instead of using OpenTX Companion, you will have to flash your T16 using SD card. In this tutorial I will show you how.
You can use OpenTX Companion to transfer model profiles from an old radio to your new radio, or restore backup to existing radios, here is how.
The Taranis X9 Lite is something to look out for. It resembles the Taranis X9D-Plus in some way, and yet it’s only a fraction of the cost. Most importantly it comes with Frsky’s latest air protocol – ACCESS.
Frsky announced their next radio – the Horus X11. It’s going to be the new platform for their newly developed dual frequency band Tandem system.
The FPV community is going to be super excited about the Jumper T16 TX! With the amount of features offered by the Jumper T16 at this affordable price, the popular Frsky Taranis X9D and QX7 are finally facing some serious competition.
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.
I had a power problem with the Taranis external module bay, it took a while, but it was fixed at last. I want to share this adventure of troubleshooting as it was quite a great learning experience. And it might actually help somebody in the future, who knows.
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.
