FrSky's new Flagship radio is packed with great features and fits your hands like no other!

FrSky has achieved the impossible with the new X20 and X20S radios. They are extremely powerful yet easy to use. We are very comfortable suggesting the X20 radios to all of our customers, it is that good.

The FrSky Tandem X20 Series is a dual-band telemetry radio that features a color touch screen display, ergonomic design, Tandem dual-band RF system (2.4 & 900), and most importantly Ethos - Frsky’s newest operating system. It boasts an impressive end-to-end latency, ergonomic design featuring low weight and a thin profile, natural switch, button, and slider positioning, excellent durability and metal hall effect gimbals. The X20S features rotatable gimbals to best customize the radio to your grip style.

The biggest innovation in this radio lies in its software, Ethos, which has been designed from the ground up to encapsulate the power and flexibility of OpenTX while retaining the ease of use and user interface of a menu-driven system. It features customizable elements such as sounds, model images, and splash screens, while also including an easy to use setup wizard, tips while programming, along with preset and complex mixing options and flight modes.

Ethos makes quick work of programming simple planes or something complex like a full-house glider. If you are familiar with OpenTX, Ethos will feel really familiar but faster and easier to use. If you are coming from a menu-driven system, Ethos is a supremely powerful and easy to learn software that will have you up and running in no time. We like to say that Ethos can do whatever you can think of for a radio to do! Yeah, it can do that.

The X20/S also boasts some features new to FrSky radios. A crisp and responsive 800 x 480 touch screen that is easily visible in sunlight, backed by a more powerful CPU. If you prefer button navigation, full functionality is still available through the normal nav buttons, so no need to touch the screen.
USB-C charging (2A+), an included 4000mah Li-Ion battery pack, a 6-axis Gyro sensor (for controlling those pesky takeoffs with body language), and FrSky’s robust telemetry system with a huge selection of receivers to meet any need.

For those that may be new to FrSky, you will be getting the most robust telemetry system ever built into a hobby level radio. From simple voltage and signal strength monitoring that has helped avoid countless accidents to advanced features like monitoring amp loads for an individual servo, fuel flow sensors, air speed, and so much more, you will not find a better telemetry system in the hobby.

If you have a windows machine, a free Ethos simulator is available for download if you’d like to dig deeper into the system:

Here are a few more highlights:
24 Channels
6 Quick-Mode Custom Buttons on lower front
2 Momentary finger tip Buttons on the rear
External Module Bay for other RF options, etc (Lite Type)
Haptic Vibration Alerts and Voice Speech Outputs
High-speed PARA Wireless Training System
Built-in Bluetooth Audio on S versions (Compatible with wireless headphones and some hearing aids!!)
High-Precision Hall-Sensor Gimbals with CNC Metal Panel (10 Ball-Bearings, Adjustable 45 Degree Travel and 8 Degree Rotatable for S)
M4 Gimbal stick ends Sbus, S-Port and F-Port

Included in the package:
Soft Sided EVA Travel Case
Lithium Battery Pack
X20 Tandem Transmitter
Configured Micro SD card

went with this version....X20

'been a Futaba guy since 1991....but they're not really keeping up with long range or tiny receivers. A couple guys in my club bought the 20S, but the benefit of metal gimbals didn't matter to me. I mean all my transmitters have had plastic gimbals, so I used the money saved to buy 3 receivers...Tandem 10s, Archer R8 and the little tiny SBUS one. Half of my receivers for my 14SG are FrSky and I absolutely love not try their new trans? I like the weight of it and how it hangs on the strap. Sticks are smooth and in a really good spot...(I pinch)... and the display is really nice. This is a whole new language to me, but I'm beginning to understand after 2 days of playing around with it. I had a really hard time connecting the trans to my laptop, at first....couldn't find ANY info on the problem and was about to call when I decided to try another C cord....that's right....the SUPPLIED C CORD WAS BAD!! Other than that, I'm really glad I bought this transmitter. Really easy to update both trans and receivers...pretty slick, actually. I've watched tutorial vids to learn how to use and set it up...Really looking forward to using the R9 receivers for my FPV planes and quads. Thanks, Aloft Hobbies

FrSky X20

I have used Futaba radios for 42 years. I still have one that I am using. About 8 years ago I purchased a Spektrum radio because they offered more features for the price. I have purchased a FrSky X20 not only because of the features for the price but also because of the reputation of a quality product. I am loving the capabilities it offers. The service of Aloft Hobbies also has been speedy and great.
