We offer a number of receivers to fit many applications.
If you have a FrSky transmitter you can use an X, D, Non-telemetry (V8) or Long Range receiver.
The X are the most common and highly recommended, they will bind in D16 mode and support a wide range of sensors.
The D series are an older offering from FrSky, they do not support many sensors anymore and will bind in D8 mode. These receivers are ideal if you are using a FrSky DFT, DJT or DHT module in your radio.
The non telemetry (V8) series 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.
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. If you are looking for Spektrum receivers, sorry, we do not offer any, we are not a fan of their RF performance.
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. Sadly this line is shrinking and there are few sensors left that will work with these receivers. Also, these units are limited to 8 channels.
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.)
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.
Now you can enjoy the quality and reliability of FrSky on your Futaba, and save a bunch on money too.
As an added feature - FrSky allows you to replace the antenna on all of the receivers (except the micro). They come equipped with a 150mm antenna, but you can go all the way up to our 600mm antenna. This gives you the freedom to get your antenna out into the clear.
Old modules may need to be updated to the newest version, the transmitter is then put in the link mode and then the blinking leds must be changed from red to blue by holding the link button for 2 seconds. Then the Minima receivers can be linked.
