FrSky R-XSR–New ultra mini receiver
FrSky has recently announced their new ultra mini receiver – FrSky R-XSR. If you are using FrSky transmitter like Taranis X9D or Taranis Q X7 you should have a look at this tiny new receiver.
According to FrSky, the new R-XSR receiver is “the evolution of FrSky full range XSR receiver”. However, the new receiver is 1/3 size and 1/3 weight of the XSR receiver. It could perfectly replace the FrSky XM+ receivers we are using. Compared to those the new mini receiver support telemetry and Smart Port.
Here is a quick comparison of both mini receivers:
|Size||16mm x 11mm x 5.4mm||21.5mm x 12mm x 3.5mm|
|Number of channels||16 (16 SBUS / 8 CPPM)||16 (16 SBUS / 8 CPPM)|
|Operating Voltage Range||3.5~10V||3.7V~10V|
|Operating Current||70mA @ 5V||30mA @ 5V|
|Telemetry and Smart Port||Yes||No|
The R-XSR receiver is a bit smaller and a bit lighter than the XM+ receiver. Additionally, you can see the telemetry data (like battery voltage) on the display of your Taranis transmitter.
