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, New larger battery pack and X8R receiver. You have versatility and power at an unprecedented value.

This is one of the best things that I have ever bought, not just from Hobbyking, but ever! It came well boxed with the tx, rx and accessories well protected, it's of great quality and the ergonomics are brilliant! I may even buy another to teach my dad how to fly. 10/10 A Frsky/Hobbyking :)Wow this radio is simply perfect, I added a variometer to it and then let's enjoy sailplane with it.
Associated to OpenTX model configuration is simple, you have plenty of support on Internet with unlimited possibilities!SUPER IMPRESSED! I would say this remote feels and performs better than the spektrum remote I was looking at prior to purchasing this! and i love how customisable it is, brilliant remote!Great radio, excellent set up with telemetry enable, recommend to other especially for long range fpvIt is just a caution to you. I received a faulty Transmitter and Support center told me to return it, so I did by my shipping cost. I requested new replacement to them but They decided to give me Store credit only the amount of product price to save their shipping. If you are not careful you will ended nothing in your hand but spending shipping x2. I asked PayPal resolution center to get full amount of what I paid for this purchase.Nice product, just pay attention : wall charger not included. Mine came with an SD card by the way but it seems not to be the case for everyone. I had a very little scratch on my screen, so HK please put a plastic cover on the screen to protect it !I love this tx. Coming from Spektrum, the value and features are mind blowing. Its easy to use and works great. I like it better than the models/toys I drive with it. I ts the best toy I have.Absolutely fantastic piece of kit.It'll take me years to use all of the features available.It really is a TX for life.Combined with the supplied X8R it has made my PNF nova far more flyable than the RTF with the stock TX.I'll be getting another X8R to transform the RTF Nova very soon.It's also extremely open to customisation.I've already upgraded the voice commands adn am slowly getting to grips with the advanced features when rain stops me from flying.I've no idea what I'll do with all the switches yet and that will keep me occupied for years to come.Recommnded if you are serious about RC.I wanted the mode 2 but out of stock so ordered the mode 1. When I first ordered and the dispatch number came up it said it was going to Russia!! PANIC. Logged into live chat and was reassured goods would be delivered to my address in Australia and confirmation should be emailed the next day.(live chat prompt response). Nothing showed up in email so I emailed customer service and reply was also amazingly prompt and another reassurance of the delivery to correct address and a return email with tracking number that indicated delivery to Australia.Well 1 week delivery from international warehouse to a country town in Australia. In perfect condition. Swapped to mode 2 simple and couldn't be happier great product. 9x, 9xr and taranis plus never had an issue fantastic thanks hobbykingThe side sliders are a little bit shaky. And the SD switch is simply not working. This radio is V1.
