This is the highly anticipated FrSky X9 Lite S. You'll first notice the beautiful metallic finish and silky smooth Hall Effect gimbals which will enhance your flying experience, allowing for greater precision than traditional potentiometers. A great improvement from the original X9 lite. It features a push button On/Off switch that must be held for several seconds to power up and power down the transmitter. The standard navigation buttons on the right side of the LCD screen have been been replaced with an encoder roller, making it easier and faster to program and setup your models.
It also features two momentary button switches at the top of the radio, which could come in handy for various functions such as a trainer which can be setup with the old buddy box cable or wirelessly.
Inside the radio is both ACCESS and ACCST firmware, so it will work with your ACCST receivers and modules out of the box. What is ACCESS?
ACCESS is FrSky's next generation transmission protocol that tremendously increases the capability of their transmitters. How, you ask? The following is a highlight list of the new capabilities of ACCESS.
On the backside is the usual Lite module bay which will accept all FrSky Lite modules.
FrSky has added this device to the battery compartment which allows for USB charging via the included USB cable and the use of FLAT TOP 18650 lithium ion batteries. It goes in between the two cells like in the included diagram:
Here is an example of the installation:
