The FrSKY RX8R 2.4GHz ACCST 8/16ch Telemetry receiver can work with most aircraft, however it is designed for optimal use with a Glider. FrSky built the variometer sensor into the RX8R receiver, this will give you telemetry data such as altitude and vertical speed.
The G-RX8 supports the redundancy function as well, this means you can add another receiver to create a back-up in case one fails. In addition, it supports SBUS and PWM mode, allowing you to switch between the 2 channels very easily.
- Integrate with high precision variometer sensor
- Support redundancy function
- Support telemetry data transmission
- Switchable SBUS/PWM mode (1~8CH from PWM outputs and 1~16CH from SBUS output)
- Compatibility: D16 mode
- Dimension: 55 x 17 x 8mm
- Weight: 5.8g
- Channels: 16
- Operating Current: 100mA @ 5v
- Operating Range: Full range
Fast Delivery, excellent receivers
The receivers arrived in 4 days. These receivers are excellent in gliders, it really helps to know if I am near the height limit at our flying field. They have excellent range for the gliders, and they also work great in my Radiomaster Transmitter. I have never had a low signal warning with them, that some other receivers occasionaly give. So I now have 6 of them :)
Telemetery is becoming the must-have feature for rc radios as it enhances the flying experience and improves safety. Although the G-RX8 is designed for gliders, the variometer is a useful feature to have on any model. Of the two I purchased, one is in a sailplane and the other, in a power-model. Delivery took less than a week with no issues and I'm happy to pay a slightly higher price to support a local business.
As advertised, works well on any rc model, especially good for finding thermals
Quick postage as always I can only recommend AAA service
If you can't afford tbs crossfire, frsky is the natural next choice. Combined with Taranis tx, seamless performance and instant compatibility. Thanks NextFPV. Never had an issue with frsky, everything else has let me down.
