The names says it all, this a X4R-SB CPPM reciever with no servo pins soldered on. This saves weight and makes the reciever more compact. You will need to do some soldering to use this reciever.
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.
The X4R-SB-CPPM receiver features 3 PWM outputs (normal servo) and 1 Sbus port that carries all 16 channels. Plus the Smart Port and a traditional A2 port are still located on the side port of the receiver. A FrSky FBVS can be connected to the A2 port for simple voltage monitoring.
Smaller than the X6R, but still packing 16 channels and the Smart Port that supports the new hubless digital sensors! Or, connect the new vario, and then connect the old hub to use existing analog sensors.
A common question is what can the SBus port do. First off, you can connect it to many flight controllers via a single connection, and now you have access to all 16 channels. Or, you can use something like the FrSky Sbus Decoder, this will allow you to add 4 normal servo outputs (pwm). You can also connect Sbus servos directly to the Sbus line. Just "Y" in as many SBus devices as you need.

They went to the next smaller antenna connector with this version for some odd reason. Where do I get antenna for this one?
(Note - We now offer the new smaller connector antennas at Aloft!)
I am using this with my naze32 in ppm mode with cleanflight. Just solder signal pins 2 and 3 together and directly solder a servo line from channel one to your Naze. Done. Super lite 16 channel RX with telemetry.
I love Frsky radios! If you're building a micro sized multirotor and you run SBUS, buy this receiver! I buy all my Frsky receivers and Taranis parts from Aloft Hobbies. Items are always shipped quickly and are well packed! In fact, this receiver was the only item I ordered, and instead of sending it in a padded envelope, which is fine, they send it packed in a small box. Five star service, Thank you Aloft Hobbies!
