Do you want the HOTTEST RC radio of 2017 in Australia/NZ? FAST SHIPPING - a Full FrSky Taranis +PLUS ARM cortex RC Tx with X4R-Sbus Rx? Bonus free FBVS-01 voltage sensor? - it's here - thanks for your support customers ordering FrSky Taranis in Oceania, NZ and Australia from us . We have worked hard to include our MWC "mix" with 14 channels activated and assigned to all switches :) saving you days of setup time. you still need to bind your Rx.
BINDING - Short press menu ->; page (2/13) ;+; +;+;+;+;ENT (BIND will flash and it will make a squirrely noise) - then hold down the F/S button on the Rx and power it with 5v - wait 2 secs - you will see the bind confirmation red/green ; release the hold-down on the Rx button - hit ENT button on Tx, to end the bind on Tx - - power down Rx , power down Tx and restart both normally Tx always on first - Rx will display a green LED (bound) and you will see the telemetry Rx volage (approv 5.0v on the top of the Tx LCD) (you need to be at least 1m away Tx->Rx - if too close like 20cm it will not establish a clean link)
Taranis Plus + has : -
includes - All C-Tick approved ; FCC approved and CE approved items listed below
● Quad Ball Bearing Gimbals
• Haptic feedback
• Module based RF - allows for swapping over modules in Future - such as long Range
● Louder amp - Audio Speech Outputs (values, alarms, settings, as programmed by the user etc.)
● Antenna Status Detection and Alters
● Real-time Flight Data Logging
● RSSi Signal Strength Alerts
● Super Low Latency ARM processor M3 32-bit 60MHz
● Smart Port Supported
Question 1 - Which receivers does the Taranis with X9D internal module (included on motherboard) support? answer = X8R, D6FR, V8FR-II, V8R7-II,V8R4-II, VD5M and also these older receivers D8R-XP / D8RSP ; D8R-II plus / D8R-II ; D4R-II / D4FR ; D8R
Question 2 - Which receivers does the Taranis +DJT module (not included but widespread) support if swapped out in the back module port? Answer = Many existing users may want to transfer over their fleet of existing aircraft using their existing DJT module into Taranis - These receivers will work with the DJT module in Taranis -> V8FR; V8R7; V8R4; V8R7SP
Question 3 - I want to fly a Multicopter Camera platform - so How do i get FrSky Taranis X8R Channels 1-8 on Sbus and also get Ch 9,10,11 on the top pins for my Gimbal tilt/roll and camera trigger shots?
Answer - Yes this works great for PARIS v5r3 or dji autopilots too like NAZA or Phantom or Wookong
Question 4 - How do you set the spring for throttle in mode 2? or How do you change it from no-spring on throttle, over to centering spring throttle used by dji noobs?
Follow the instructions on this image (above) to alter the spring force on a FrSKy Taranis throtle stick. copy to your desktop to see larger image.
This radio is made for RC & IT boys and girls who love open source and computers in a big way - Taranis not suited to RC noobs who dont know RC, It does not include training ; it is very complex and you MUST read ->> Taranis Manual is here <<- before deciding to buy one - If your a RC geek coder at heart its for you!!
If you could design your own transmitter, what would you include? Introduce the Taranis - Embracing Open Sauce - FrSky has succeeded in introducing a transmitter at an entry level price that outperforms many systems on the market. The most important aspect for any transmitter is maintaining a rock solid near un-jammable failsafe connection with the receiver. FrSky is well known for the frequency hopping ACCST technology taking advantage of the entire 2.4GHz band resulting in excellent range and reliability. FrSky knows many things can affect the connection between Transmitter and receiver so RSSI (receiver signal strength indication) is incorporated into all telemetry receivers. The Taranis transmitter is continually monitoring the reception quality at the aircraft. Taranis will alert the pilot before signal quality becomes critical. This saves planes and makes the hobby much safer!
In addition to RSSI, Taranis has other safety features. Receiver Lock allows you to lock a specific model in the transmitter to one and only one receiver. No more flying (crashing) with the wrong program selected. Taranis has three different types of Failsafe. 1 - Hold last known commands, 2- Goto a programmed state (cut throttle, flaps down, etc. 3- No output. (Triggers flight controllers with "go home" feature.) The RSSI feature means you probably won't ever use the failsafe. Voice Alerts Just like having a copilot, the transmitter will give you voice alerts on speaker or through the headphone jack. Count down timers, low voltage warnings, landing gear down, thermal mode entered, etc. can all be set up with human recorded voice of your creation, or sound packages shared online from other hobbyists
The open-source software for the Taranis has been developed by hobbyist’s in the R/C community. The programmers of the transmitter’s firmware and companion software which runs on Linux, Windows, and Macintosh are very receptive to input and requests from users. There are no limitations based on marketing decisions. If you can think of it, chances are the Taranis is capable of doing it. With 60 model memories, tons of mixes, 9 flight modes, sequencing, servo speed, programmed delay all kinds of triggers, and the ability to assign any channel to anything, it is hard to come up with something this radio can't do. With this level of complexity, you would think the programming would be a real nightmare, but thanks to the forward thinking of the open source community, we can set up and test our programs on our favorite computer (PC, Mac or Ubuntu), it even features a handy set up wizard that will take care of most of the work! But they also made it easy to share programs freely via the USB port, or micro SD card on the back of the Taranis.
Are you heavily invested in another RF system? No worries, the Taranis actually has a normal JR style module on the back that will accept modules for other transmitting protocols. In the model setup you simply tell the system if you are using the external module, and it shuts down the internal FrSky module. Now you can use your Futaba, Spektrum, JR, Aisin, and other receivers if you have a transmitter module that fits in a JR style module bay. Our UHF friends, can pass 12 volts directly to a UHF module, eliminating dangling wires and extra battery packs.
FrSky has taken the hobby to a whole new level as they have evolved the transmitter to be more than a steering wheel. This is something truly special!
Features in full
Open source community-driven firmware, so unlike with older manufacturers, with pen source if you need a special function or have good improvement suggestions just raise your voice, and surprise it could be implemented a couple of weeks later!

It's no wonder people have been excited about this transmitter. This hobby has never seen a more reliable and more affordable radio. FrSky has an excellent reputation for building high quality, highly reliable telemetry systems. The Taranis takes everything they have learned and pushes it to the next level!

I am impressed with the Quality and Build of the Taranis. Overall, the ergonomic design has produced a Transmitter that not only feels good in your hands but delivers an engineering design that oozes quality and professionalism. The Taranis far surpasses my expectations and with Open Source software / Open Tx at your fingertips the sky is the limit! Team MultiwiiCopter has been most excellent in their service and customer support,as well as providing a number of pre-programmed models to assist with the journey. Good on you MWC. Highly Recommended!

Been a Futaba user for many years for their quality and reliability.Finally bought a Frsky Taranis from MWC to take advantage of telemetry supported by Naze 32 based FC.
Extremely impressed by the quality of the radio. Gimbals are as smooth as the 14SG, switches are crisp and precise. The sliders are perfect for gimbals control,smooth with enough friction and without the ratchet feel for smooth operation. Only been using it for a fortnight ,so far I'm very impressed. Still exploring the possibilities of the radio and learning the programming.
MultiwiiCopter have preloaded numerous models/templates which makes learning that much easier/quicker.
