Frsky Taranis X9D Plus Special Edition 2019

Frsky has released new 2019 version of Frsky Taranis X9D Plus and Taranis X9D Plus Special Edition. The main differencies are: Right side navigation buttons are replaced with scrollweel control, just like in Taranis X9 Lite. New internal radio module version, supporting ACCESS and ACCST protocols (D8 protocol is not supported anymore). Radio can be powered by 2pcs of Li-on 18500 batteries and they can be recharged via USB connection. And the 2019 version of the Taranis X9D Plus has upgraded internal processor MCU with increased computing capability and increased data storage. This should not only improve the performance of LUA scripts, but it also optimizes overall performance like voice speech outputs.

You can notice, that sliding power button was replaced by push button, as in all latest FrSky radios. Also we can notice additional momentary push button on the top left shoulder of the radio, usefull for DLG pilots to activate launch mode.

Frsky Taranis X9D Plus 2019 radio transmitter is available in Dark Blue, Ash White and classic Silver colors.

The SE 2019 version has also upgraded switches and M9 hall sensor gimbals and features the addition of a PARA wireless trainer function which makes them compatible with the FrSky Free Link App and AirLink S.

Frsky Taranis X9D Plus SE 2019 radio transmitter is available in Carbon and Dark Blue colors.
