Frsky Horus X10 and X10S – lighter Horus X12S or advanced Q X7 ?

Frsky has announced their new radio transmitter – Horus X10. It has the outlook of the X7 and the features of X12S. It is lighter than Horus X12S and has some less features like no GPS and no 6-axis sensors and is powered by a Li-Po battery. Thus price range will be lower than X12S – around $330.

The new TX features hall effect gimbals, Frsky proprietary firmware (as in Horus X12S), menu navigation rotary wheel is similar as in Q X7. Horus X10 has external antenna and also two internal antennas, as well built-in upgraded iXJT Module.

Update (2017-08-27): Here are the pictures of the Horus X10 internals from the FCC certification documents: https://fccid.io/XYFX10CSP/Internal-Photos/Int-Photos-3526447.pdf

Now we know that X10 will have internal 2S Li-Ion battery with 2600 mAh capacity.

Internal RF module has 4 antenna connectors. Only 2 of them are connected. One for external antenna and second one internal, PCB (?).

Also a user manual is included: https://fccid.io/XYFX10CSP/Users-Manual/Users-Manual-3526452.pdf

If you wonder what is the difference between various FrSky gimbals here is the information (thanks to MIke Dailey):

The X12S, released in August of 2016 was the first FrSky system with Hall Effect sensor gimbals. They are called MC12 gimbals and are 6 bearing, metal CNC, Hall sensor gimbals with the metal crossbars on the back of the mechanics. The concept of the MC12 gimbal with the crossbars on the back was the inspiration for all the other FrSky Hall Effect gimbals as follows:
M7, Metal mounting frame, plastic mechanics (with metal crossbars), 4 bearings, Hall Effect sensor gimbal for the Q X7 TX family.
M9, M9R*, Metal mounting frame, plastic mechanics (with metal crossbars), 4 bearings, Hall Effect sensor gimbal for the X9D TX family.
M10, Metal mounting frame, plastic mechanics (with metal crossbars), 4 bearings, Hall Effect sensor gimbal for the X10 TX.
MC12 plus, Metal CNC frame (with metal crossbars), 10 bearings, Hall Effect sensor gimbal for the X10S TX.

*M9R also reduced stick throw for faster response.
