Now supplied with UNI-RX firmware for a much improved owner experience. You can read a bit more about UNI-RX here

The FrSky X8R receiver features 16 channels (8 normal PWM outputs and all 16 channels on the dedicated Sbus output).

A common question we get is how do you get all 16 channels out of the X8R? Well, FrSky has given you options. You can use the Sbus line to access all 16 channels. Using something like the FrSky Sbus Decoder, you can convert the digital Sbus signal to normal servo outputs. You can connect Sbus servos directly to the Sbus line. Another option is that you can combine 2 X8Rs and output channels 1-8 on the first receiver, and output 9-16 on the second receiver. 

But that isn't all the X8R can do. It can also work in "D8 Mode to work with the DHT, DJT, DFT and DHT-U transmitter modules. In this mode you have 8 channels. (Note, for this to work you will need to flash FrSky's firmware back onto this receiver, we now supply them with UNI-RX. We can do this flashing for you at the time of purchase.

You are probably wondering about the new antennas on the X8R. FrSky refers to these as PCB antennas and report up to a 20% range increase over the standard antennas. The PCB antenna does take up a bit of space, for this reason, you can swap to any FrSky receiver antenna to meet your needs.

Excellent receiver

Great receiver - I have these in most of my planes and they work well. I can easily get telemetry on my radio while the plane is in flight (with optional sensor) which tells me real-time what is the voltage in my battery (s). The ACCST protocol is getting harder to find, so kudos to Aloft Hobbies for making them available. Highly recommend for ACCST Taranis radios.

They work great but getting the first binding is a night mare on everyone that I have used.

X8R with UNI-RX

Excellent work on UNI-RX. Works as advertised and documented. I tested using 2 X8Rs as 16 channels and Dual Bind. ( just curious ) One tx on FrSkyX2 and one tx on Version 1 FrSky. Telemetry also shows the new VFR. It took slightly longer to discover VFR. TX and rx were very close and no lost telemetry.

I think you meant to mark this 5 starts, not one? LOL

Frsky X8R

I ordered some more of the Frsky X8R receivers for some airplanes I am updating the radios in. The receivers work excellent, I did have to update the firmware on the receivers to match the revision level of my Qx7 transmitter. Once that is done they work perfect.

Arrived well packaged

I even got a candy! More importantly I had requested a particular firmware version and it was delivered as I requested. Just the normal excellent service.
