Introducing the X-Lite Pro the first FrSky radio to use the new ACCESS protocol. First, lets go over some of the physical upgrades that have been made to the X-Lite that makes it now the X-Lite Pro.
First on the list is the CNC'd aluminum, Hall Effect gimbals, better precision, equals better feel, equals better control. A new RF module that has lower latency. An increase in baud rate to 450K, resulting in higher communication speeds between internal and external modules. A wireless trainer system, but still supports the cable trainer system. And a internal battery charger round out this short list.
Let's get ACCESS.
ACCESS is FrSky's next generation transmission protocol that tremendously increases the capability of their transmitters. How, do you ask? The following is a paragraphical highlight list of the new capabilities of ACCESS.
The number of channels has been increased from 16 to 24. Latency has been decreased. Lower latency decreases the time that it takes for a channel command to leave the transmitter and produce a result at the aircraft. Binding, firmware updating and configuration of receivers can now be done wirelessly. The introduction of Smart Match; once a receiver is registered to a transmitter, that receiver can be wirelessly bound to the transmitter without having to push the bind button on the receiver. Both the transmitter and the receiver cross verify each other during the bind process, providing a greater level of security between the transmitter and receiver. Channel remapping; individual receiver pins can be assigned to any channel using the new "receiver options" page in the transmitter. This function helps to make setting up an aircraft easier and more goof proof than ever before. Use the onboard spectrum analyzer to check for potentially intrusive or excessively strong radio frequencies (or RF noise) transmitting near your flying area. You can also use the Power Meter page to determine the RF output of external devices that transmit on frequencies between 900MHz and 2.4GHz. An integrated 6 axis, motion sensing control feature allows the pilot to control receiver channels on the aircraft during flight just by tilting the radio.
