FrSky Horus X10

4.8 5

The first thing that comes to mind is WOW. FrSky has listened to their customers and really hit a homerun with the X10. 

Yes, these have the updated charging system. 
  • Q. What is an X10?

    A. FrSky combined the best features of the X9D and the X12 into a new radio. 

    Start off with the great looks of the radio, now add the best color screen in the business, Hall Effect gimbals, great ergonomics and basically everything else people have been asking for on previous FrSky radios, and you have a home run

    The first two things that immediately struck me about the X10, was it's lighter weight than the Horus X12S and how comfortable it was to hold. The gimbals are velvety smooth and the switches and pots feel very nice to the touch. The neck strap mount is a new design; sturdy but not intrusive and hangs the radio at the correct angle.

    The X10 comes programmed with FrSky's easy to use, menu driven operating system, FrOS. For those of you who desire more flexibility than a menu driven OS can offer, the X10 also supports the outstanding OpenTX firmware. The X10 has a 480 x 272 TFT daylight readable color screen. The large color screen and encoder wheel make navigation and programming quicker and easier than on an X9D, and not by a small margin either. To round out the touchable stuff, the X10 comes with the very smooth feeling, M10 Hall effect gimbals. 

    Next on the features list are the two internal transmission antennas. Mounted at a 45° angle in addition to a removable, 2db external antenna. The radio is powered by a 2600mAh Li-ion battery that is charged using a provided external smart charger; runtime is approximately 9hrs between charges. One of the advantages of the Li-ion battery pack is the quick recharge times, about 1.5 hours for a very low battery. 

    For those of you who are not familiar with FrSky radio systems the X10 comes with an internal iXJT+ transmitter,  but also has a module bay built into the back of the radio that can run different transmitting modules. If you would prefer to use a different protocol, an assortment of modules can be found here. 

    All of the same great qualities as the other FrSky transmitters:

    • 16 channels (32 channels when combined with an external XJT or Ranger module)
    • Ball bearing gimbals equipped with Hall Effect sensors 
    • High Resolution TFT, Transflective Screen, visible in direct sunlight
