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.
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.
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.
Worked as it should. Great customer service as always.
Can’t beat um!
Great receivers, a bit tricky to set up but worth learning how... and not that difficult to get great results.
