We offer a number of receivers to fit many applications, from tiny to huge, from glider to gas, FrSky has you covered.
The X are the most common and highly recommended, they will bind in D16 mode and support a wide range of sensors. The S Series and Redundant receivers are subcategories of the X range.
Long Range receivers do exactly what you would think, they offer much greater range for those special missions, and can add dual frequency redundancy to your application for rock solid reliability.
The D series are an older offering from FrSky, they do not support many sensors and will bind in D8 mode they will not work with newer ACCESS transmitters. These receivers are ideal if you are using a FrSky DFT, DJT or DHT module in your radio.
The non telemetry (V8) series is an even older range of receivers that can save you a couple of bucks and will also bind in D8 mode, but you will need to follow the receiver instructions to place the receiver into telemetry emulation mode when binding. These will not work with newer ACCESS transmitters.
We also offer high quality Futaba and HiTec compatible receivers. These can offer added features like CPPM and SBUS outputs for a very reasonable price.
The Archer Series feature FrSky's newest ACCESS protocol, so make sure your transmitter supports ACCESS or you will not be able to talk with the Archers.
ACCESS brings several new features to FrSky radios. VFR telemetry reports packet loss data to better show the quality of the RF connection. OTA brings Over The Air firmware updating and binding (still in development) and all of the other great features we expect.
Unless noted, these are all full range full telemetry receivers.
F.Port - FrSky's evolution of S.Port. Think of it as SBus and S.Port rolled into a single port. So all your sensors and channel data can share a single data port. We will see more and more products based on F.Port in the future.
The D series receivers are FrSky's first telemetry units. Rock solid and reliable, yet very affordable. This is where FrSky really got rolling with their telemetry capabilities.
All receivers feature built in receiver voltage sensor and RSSI feedback. (Receiver Signal Strength Indication, it warns you if your reception is getting low at the receiver, this saves your aircraft and makes the hobby safer!)
Compatible with all FrSky transmitters (bind in D8 mode) and also the D series modules like the DFT, DJT, DHT and the DHT-U. These units are limited to 8 channels.
Note: We are adding the X series receivers that are able to be bound in D8 mode. This means they can be used with modules like the DFT, DJT, DHT and the DHT-U. Giving users of these modules more choices. Please be aware that the X series will not be able to use the newer sensors when in D8 mode.
FrSky's X series receivers feature Smart Port (a hub-less sensors technology), SBUS and CPPM outputs on most models (great for cleaning wiring and accessing up to 16 channels), and advanced safety features like memory lock so your model is locked to a single model memory. No more crashes because you forgot to change model memories!
Compatible with all FrSky transmitters and the XJT module. Receivers that feature telemetry can be connected to the X series sensors. Telemetry receivers feature built in receiver bus voltage and RSSI feedback. (Receiver Signal Strength Indication, it warns you if your reception is getting low at the receiver, this saves your aircraft and makes the hobby safer!)
When binding an X series receiver, set your radio to D16 mode.(Not compatible with DFT, DJT, DHT or DHT-U modules.)
Redundancy receivers have the ability to add a second receiver via the SBUS IN port. In the event that the main receiver has a poor radio connection, it will automatically switch control over to the second receiver if it has a better connection. Some may think of this as a satellite receiver, typically this will be an X series receiver.
A very nice option with the FrSky redundancy system is the ability to create a dual frequency system for greatly improved safety. To do this, just add an R9 module to the back of your FrSky transmitter and then plug an R9 receiver into the SBUS IN port. Now you have a system that uses 2.4ghz and 900mhz.
Want more range from your FrSky system? These long range receivers are just the ticket.
L Series Receivers - This is a great way to extend your range without breaking your bank account. No need to buy new modules, if you have a FrSky XJT module or FrSky transmitter, then you are ready to step up to the FrSky Long Range system! Just bind in LR12 mode!
R Series Receivers - This is the 900mHz system from FrSky. If you are really looking to push the range, or just having too many issues with 2.4gHz, than the R9 system will do the trick. The 900mHz has many advantages over 2.4, it is able to bend around obstacles and penetrate things that would completely block 2.4. Requires an R9 module for your radio to use this new system. Range can be measured in miles.
