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.
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 programed, 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, a ergonomic case with ultra-smooth smooth ball bearing gimbals and a large backlit LCD with a included aluminum case and battery pack. You have versatility and power at an unprecedented value.

I am loving this open software tx. Been an aircraft technician, there's nothing yet that I thought of that I can't replicate on here. This is an awesome product.i had to change my radio because the voice alerts quit working. i wanted to take the radio apart but it was still under warranty. better to buy stuff from the closest warehouse near you. i bought this from the global warehouse. now returning is is quite pricey and the wait can be long. i'm a little disappointed for receiving the lemon. but i'll wait for the new one if i'm allowed a new one.I bought one of those a few months ago and a few receivers with Telemetry. After the initial headache trying to understand the programming, i must say it is an unreal piece of equipment for the price. It has a great choice of receivers too. No more crashes because of faulty batteries on my Helis, the telemetry low voltage audio warning is a saver.Great radio easy to setup
HK to NZ in 3 days very impressed and happy it beat two previous orders im still waiting for
oh and its version BDie ultimative Fersteuerung, open Source Software, voll Telemetriefhig, Sprachausgabe, extrem detaillierte deutsche Anleitung, grosse Comunity, Modelle sind am PC konfigurierbar kurz gesagt: die "Eierlegende wollmilchsau" unter den FernsteuerungenThe logical upgrade to my 9XR, once you know the user interface you love it for its flexibility. Still struggling to get companion working though (USB problem). The gimbals are precise and I may never use all the switches and controls. Also nice to have 3 way switches. The only negative I found is the neck strap mount. Without the extension the radio is out of balance. The extension that's part of the delivery has the wrong bolt and is too low. No way to access the on/off switch. I used a part from a S p e k t r u m Tx, which needs a bit of filing but works just fine. See picture in the files tab. Also, why is there no charger the package? It's only $5.
All in all a great deal, no wonder it's always on backorder.Amazing radio, a little difficult to get to grips with the programing but there are plenty of help videos on youtube! There is pretty much nothing this radio cant do. I am using it for FPV mainly with the D8R-11 plus RX and the rssi telemetry is worth the money alone. Delivery was only 7 days to UK and it arrived in almost perfect order. I say "almost perfect" as it had a small fault, the throttle stick would not stay at zero, I had to open the case and shave a little off the screw seat with a Stanley blade so the screw would go down properly. Not a major issue and easy to fix. Since getting this radio almost all of my flying mates have got one and they all love it. The only problem with it is getting one, they seem to be out of stock within a few hours of restocking!I received the radio in Brazil by FedEx two days after being dispatched from Hong Kong. It arrived perfect. When in my hands and moving a bit I have noticed something free inside.I openned just a small gap and a small squared plastic frame came out (???).
What is that I do not know.
The radio is plenty of functions, curves options, knobs, switches, channels, etc.
It is a case of study. I do no see reason to move from my both Futabas 8UFPS and 8UAFS. I use the proper modules when necessary. The Futabas seems more trustable to an old modeller that also like new toys... I am going to keep the Taranis and try it steep by steep....
The chinese are tough but still have to learn a lot about quality and reliability.
Superb item to use in all RC stuff. Just safe peace of mind that you have a tad better item in your gear. Buy with confidence.Got my taranis in a month and a half, just in time for the HobbyKing Aussie BBQ. Excellent condition. I was excited and bound my V8R V ii receiver. Hooking up telemetry needs exploring and/or advice to get it to read out the values. REALLY LOVE IT!!! It's the best investment of this hobby.
