****This radio uses FrSky's new ACCESS protocol. Receivers using the old ACCST protocol will not work with this transmitter without updating the firmware. For more information watch the ALOFT TECH TALK video below.****
The FrSky Taranis X9 Lite is a remarkable fusion of traditional radio design with the innovations of the latest innovations from FrSky. Great for folks that are new to the hobby, now we have a really affordable starter radio that has all of the same great features of the bigger FrSky radios, but at a very good introductory price!
I'll admit that we were not that excited about this radio at first, but after pulling it out of the box for inspection we began to be won over with this radio. It fits the hands great. (If you have smaller hands you will love this radio.) And it is easy to use, it just feels nice.
The X9 Lite inherits its classic form factor from the FrSky Taranis X9D series remote control but shrunk down just a bit smaller, completely preserving the comfort of the classic grip design, it also adds a navigation scrolling button which is far more convenient that the old button press navigation method.
For beginners, the wired training function is retained, allowing beginners to improve their skills with the security of an instructor's input.
Thanks to the low price, the X9 Lite is also a great radio for folks that would like a dedicated system for their RC simulator. But don't let the low price fool you, this is a powerhouse of a radio that will put much more expensive radios to shame.
Like the Taranis X-Lite Pro, the new Taranis X9 Lite also uses the latest ACCESS communication protocol, along with FrskyTX / OpenTX open source operating system, it boasts 24 channels with a faster baud rate and lower latency with a high-speed module digital interface. Additional ACCESS features like wireless firmware updates and wireless configurations will be gradually unlocked, providing a more reliable, more secure link between the remote and model. Making the X9 Lite a fully functioning remote control with tons of extra features.
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.
