A top of the range 16 Channel X8R receiver from FrSky! (8 normal PWM outputs and all 16 channels on the dedicated S.BUS output)

The X8R is in a Smaller package then previous 8 channel receivers, but has so much more capability. The new Smart Port supports the new hub-less sensors as well as the older hub analog sensors.

The X8R supports 8 standard servo outputs, and you can access all 16 channels by using the Sbus line with Sbus supported servos or use a FrSky S.BUS Decoder for the full 16 channels. Or you can use 2 X8R receivers in combination and the channels will sync 1-8 on the first and 9-16 on the second.

The X8 protocol is also backward compatible! In D8 mode it work with the DHT, DJT, DFT and DHT-U transmitter modules. In this mode you only have access to 8 channels but you still get to use the new Smart Port and digital sensors! And even cooler is the new antenna design “PCB” it reports up to a 20% gain in range over their older antennas. And the X8R is Firmware Upgradeable!

This is the perfect receiver for the FrSky Taranis, with its built in XJT Module or any of the D8 systems to take advantage of the new digital Smart Port sensors.

Dimension: 46.5mm x 27mm x 14.4mm (1.83" x 1.06" x .56")
Weight: 16.8g (.59 oz)
Operating Voltage Range: 4V-10.0V
Operating Current: 100mA@5V
Operating Range: >1.5km (Full Range)
RSSI output: analog voltage output (0~3.3V)

All 16 channels require the FrSky Taranis, or the XJT module.
For 8 channels in D8 Mode you can use the FrSky Taranis or XJT, DJT, DFT, DHT and DHT-U modules

Great RX, I have several of them.
Love this receiver though I recommend buying decent mounts for the paddle; 3d printed variants are available. The smart port with the voltage sensor provides a huge benefit to us novice fliers.
Rádio de uma versatilidade espetacular. A porta SMart permite trocar os sensores entre os diferentes copters sem ter que adquirir sensores para cada copter.
Very good RX. Worked well. Using 7ch in a twin with flaps and a cargo bay. Never a glitch with my DJT Module and 9xr pro.
Habe mittlerweile ueber 20 Stk. im Einsatz. Bin ein absoluter Fan von FrSky. Fliege mit der Taranis seit es die Fernsteuerung giebt, Telemetrie absolut zuverl?ssig, jede Menge verschiedener Telemetriesensoren, die in Serie an den Empfaenger angeschlossen werden koennen. Und das alles zu Preisen die auch f?r kleine Budgets erschwinglich sind.
This is my all-time favorite reciever. The range is aswesome, the flexibility is amazing, telemtery, smart port, sbus...whats not to like?
These are my favorite receivers so far. Great range easy to configure and includes SBUS. The plastic part of the antenna's can get in the way if you don't have a good place to strap them down.
Works great, love the telemetry. Been out to 1.5mi with this and Taranis Tx
I have several in different models and they all work like a charm. In combination with the X9E I never managed to drop the connection even once (even tried flashing these to the EU LBT firmware and had no signal degradation whatsoever)

Just make sure that the antennas are not touching/close to any metal and arranged in a V shape (90 angle) for best reception.
High Quality ! I use these in all my larger planes. Telemetry and more, these are the receivers setting the standard.
