16 Channel X8R receiver (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 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 new 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.
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
All FrSKY receivers come flashed with North American firmware. If you're in the EU you'll need to reflash the receiver with EU firmware (or change the radio).
