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 my first radio, it is very nice with tons of features and very good reviews. I haven't been able to test it out yet but I have spent a lot of time working through all of the settings and features. It is upgradable to the latest OpenTX 2.2.1 and customisable with appearance and sound although the upgrading process can be a bit confusing to follow correctly. It can also be used as a joystick for simulator flying. This package doesn't come with a power supply for charging but any 12v charger should work with the correct connection.This beats all the other radio's in terms of features and price! Why buy a Spektrum radio when you can get all the same features and more for a fraction of the cost. The best part is you can throw an orange module in this thing to make it fully compatible with Spektrum DSM receivers.
This radio has a lot to offer in terms of features and customization. The build quality is also really good and the control stick movements are nice and smooth.
I mainly purchased this because of the telemetry options - I wanted to be able to monitor battery voltage and signal strength of my model. Before purchasing this transmitter I crashed 2 models, one because the battery died and the plane nosedived in the ground, and another because it flew out of range and lost control - hopefully this transmitter will prevent these from occurring again.
WARNING! Do NOT update firmware!
Updating the firmware was a mistake, now the sound doesn't work and all the model icons are gone! Every time I turn it on now I get an SD card warning. The new firmware is broken and has crippled this radio. I tried downgrading, but that did not work, I got an EEPROM error and all the settings reset to defaults and I lost everything. There is a saying - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. This radio was excellent before I updated the firmware. Why OpenTX would release a new firmware like this is beyond me. It is supposed to be an upgrade not a downgrade. BUT - this is not Taranis's fault but OpenTX's.
Overall this is an excellent radio if you can get past the issues and complications with the software and firmware.I received the Taranis in a cardboard box, foam lined in pristine condition with a X8R telemetry receiver. It took me a little time to get to grips with the programming, but once you get into it this radio is amazing. For the price you can’t go past this one. All the switches and knobs feel very solid. I was a little concerned the sticks would be to easily moved as the springs are not as strong as the springs in the JR radios I had previously, but I must say I think it’s easier to fly smoothly with this radio than my previous ones. The telemetry data is great and I couldn’t be happier with this unit.
Especially when you look at the cost of receivers and sensors, fantastic value for money.
Not to mention the amount of information on line about the use and setup of this radio, the sky is the limit.I initially bought a 9XR Pro but the quality just wasn't there so I'm returning that and I bought the Taranis instead - best decision I made. The quality and feel of the gimbals are worlds apart and the pure number of switches, pots and levers makes this a perfect companion for anyone. Can't recommend this radio more highly.Še vedno ni na Eropskem skladiščuCant stress this enough, best option for the price! This transmitter can do more than you need it to, and then some! Great Buy!Good radio ! All classical functions are easy to set up and the range makes it safe.excellent radio tx im very happy with ittr?s bonne radio, enti?rement programmable, que du bonheur.I have order this taranis and many more products for a total amount of 699.- usdl, I was expecting a 3 to 5 days delivery but 5 days have past and I still haven't get a tracking number. I'm very disapointed. I contact the customers service many times and they only told me lies and were very unfriendly. I ask about the possibility of having my money back but they told me that that would take much longer. Now I am here without my items, i have lost a customer again and have no refund to order somewhere else :-(
