Competing Top Radio System modern - ACCST Hoping Technology!

FrSky 2.4GHz ACCST TARANIS X9D PLUS Digital Telemetry Radio System (Mode 2) of the best available radios and better than Futaba or other! As Good or better than  Turnigy i10 - AFHDS 2  and touch screen.

...we do not recommend Spectrum Radios and the old DMSS or DSM2 or DSMX system!

This a youtube video on how easy it is to get working and binded with a receiver, once you do
the basic settings available from the manual downloadable at:

When it comes to possibilities the Frsky TARANIS sets a new standard. FrSky is well known for their frequency hopping ACCST technology, that takes advantage of the entire 2.4GHz band, resulting in excellent range and reliability, they now offer their first full transmitter system.

Frsky takes it one further with the Taranis Plus. How is the Plus different from the normal Taranis? The Plus retains everything the normal Taranis includes plus a higher quality, better contrast LCD display that is adjustable from blue to white, and haptic vibration feedback built in. This means you can be alerted silently or use the existing built in voice or alarm features. There is one item missing, the SWR check of the transmitter antenna is no longer available. You still get the great new sliders, the big low self discharge battery, and all of the other great things you have come to expect from FrSky

The TARANIS mixes the  power of the “OPEN TX” open-source software with an unbelievable ergonomic case with 8 programmable switches, two twist knobs and two easy to get to lateral 'slider' pots, and not to mention the ultra-smooth quad bearing gimbals.

The TARANIS utilizes Voice Alerts from an internal speaker, versus just an annoying beeper. For things like; audible Count down timers, low voltage warnings, landing gear down warnings etc., Just about anything can be programmed, you can even use your own voice. The SD card slot offers unlimited memory options and a USB port for upgrades even a headphone jack.

One of the best features of the TARANIS is its full telemetry capability, as well as RSSI signal strength feedback, there are 3 different programmable failsafe modes and receiver lock, so no more crashes due to selecting the wrong model. If you have stock in other brand receivers or B&F’s, no worries the TARANIS has a JR style RF module slot, so you have the option of other brand modules such as the Orange DSM2/DSMX or Open LRS 433mhz module, or pop in another Frsky module to expand the transmitters capabilities even more with dual RF.

When you put it all together, between FrSky ACCST technology and the power of “OPEN TX” software and community, an ergonomic case with ultra-smooth ball bearing gimbals, a large backlit LCD, and new larger battery pack. You have versatility and power at an unprecedented value.

One of the best RADIOS Turnigy i10 - 6 or 10 Channel receiver! Second in Line for easyness: Futaba; Third for most advanced and more complicated FrSky systems!

One of the best RADIOS Turnigy i10 - 6 or 10 Channel receiver!

All the sensors work with the Turnigy i10 including ALTITUDE: both with the RX 6 or RX 10 receivers!

...plenty of settings, conditions, rates, channel offsets, switches and rate knobs, and functions from 2 ailerons, 2 flaps, and spoilers, and/or retracts.

The TGY-i10 radio system utilizes extremely efficient components and high speed processor chips for those complicated mixing settings. In comparison this radio system uses 1/10th of the power of a standard FM system.

Another key feature of the TGY-i10 is its telemetry capabilities, the radio system has the ability to monitor real time rpm / voltage and temperature data which provides added security when flying your models.

If you require more than 10 channels an i-Bus receiver (TGY-AEV01) is included, which will provide you with an extra 4 channels which allows an additional 16 servos to be connected.

The TGY-i10 really is one of the most intelligent and innovative radio systems available today and all at a price that will not break the bank!
