FrSky X4R-SB is the Australia HERO drone Rx MINI radio receiver of all time - only 5.8g with SBus (& CPPM - NOTE : X4R SB to PPM/SBus ? - effective 19.2.2016* combined PPM on X4RSB the CPPM can be activated by the user by during bind by jumpering pins 2&3 - CPPM to PIN1 - Sbus on PIN4 ; pin 1 outputs PPM channels 1-8, pin 2 outputs PWM Ch9, pin 3 outputs PWM Ch 10, and pin 4 outputs either PWM Ch11 in X4R or S.Bus on X4RSB. If you want to go back to non-PPM mode, bind receiver again, without jumper on pins 2 and 3.) X4R SB offers full telemetry hubless ! - full range 1.5km - features the best fuctionality available in the RC world today in 2016 at an amazing low price point - With 3Ch traditional or 16Ch SBus output and includes the new Hubless sensor SmartPort - Smartport offer an unlimited number of sensors starting with the essential cell-by-cell telemetry data - real time voltages on the ground - high sensitivity Vario/altimeter(sensors are not included - sold separately) and hubless GPS
Question How can i feed SBus to a PARIS AIR Hero v2? Answer = set the X4R to PPM (see above note jumper 2&3 during bind) - then code PARIS AIR v2 for CPPM - The big advantage to AIR v2 of CPPM? Cell-by-Cell telemetry with FVLSS and 4+4Channels (thats 4 AUX switches you can setup - not 2) and if you fit the SmartPort GPS - a full datalog of your FPV flight track saved onto the Taranis SDCard - or if you prefer live BARO voice annunciations of your altitudes in a Knife vertical race.
Excludes sensors - this example below an A2 voltage is supplied by using a FBVS-01 - this has been DIY soldered to pins(not included) for the LiPo balance tab as shown here below with FrSky X4R A2 port connected to the FBVS-01 and the 3S LiPo Pins - the A2 voltage is then activated in the Taranis telemetry section and a Play Value assigned to a switch.
Note/Warning: If the failsafe settings are not pre-set by the user/pilot, failsafe default will hold last position before signal is lost. In this case, there exists risk that your model will fly away or cause injury.
FrSky Has developed new firmware for the X4R-SB that allows it to run CPPM outputs by placing a jumper across signal pins 2 and 3 during binding.

As I have used the D4R-II for some years now this one did not surprise or disappoint. I wanted to test the S.Bus on some gyros I find excellent and it worked a treat without the need to invert the S.Bus. The gyros are built to suit the Futaba S.Bus so I expected problems but they did not eventuate,
