FrSky Products: Which to Get?

FrSky products are great, but the names make it easy to jumble them together.  Here's a breakdown of the three main families of products.

Simple Purchase Advice:

  • Buy a Taranis if you need a radio and if you can find one.
  • Buy an XJT module if you've got a 9x, 9xr, or other JR-module compatible radio
  • X8R if you want S.Port compatible telemetry or SBUS servos.
  • D4R-II if your need a small Rx that supports CPPM.  Perfect for multirotors.
