FrSkys' all in one receiver and 3-axis stabilizer.

Disclaimer  - We consider this product to be complex to use and do not recommend it as your first FrSky receiver. 

The FrSky S8R adds 3-axis stability to your winged aircraft. In addition to stabilizing standard planform aircraft, the receiver also can stabilize flying wings, as well as aircraft equipped with V-tails. 

The S8R stabilizing parameters can be configured in the field using your FrSky transmitter or by connecting the S8R to your PC using the optional STK usb adapter. The S8R can also function as a typical 8 channel receiver by turning off stabilization.

  • 3-Axis gyroscope and 3-Axis Accelerometer
  • RSSI PWM output (0≈3.3V) 
  • Smart Port enabled
  • Firmware is upgradable

NOTE: May not be compatible with very early Taranis radios. The newer Taranis Plus and all other FrSky transmitters are fine.

Great Receiver

Set up is a bit confusing, but once you get thru it, the receiver does a great job. The price is fantastic compared to other brands.

I recommend this product

A good receiver but…...

It has a very steep learning curve to setup. I couldn’t get it working for the longest time until I found a couple of YouTube videos. Apparently I have to setup Channels 1 through 4 as input then channels 9 through 12 for other functions.

FrSky S8R

This is the 1st S8R I've used, but have used several of the S6R receivers. It works perfectly just like every other FrSky product I've purchased. It was easy to update the firmware and also easy to calibrate it and set up. I installed this in a FMS Fox 3000mm Glider so I could have flaperons and crow options and have all 4 wing servos on their own channel. I did have to modify the internal wiring on the glider also to make that work correctly, but that is a FMS design issue and nothing to do with the S8R itself. I love these stabilization receivers from FrSky and highly recommend them to anyone that flies planes or gliders.

Can’t beat um!

Great receivers, a bit tricky to set up but worth learning how... and not that difficult to get great results.
