Jumper has announced their most sophisticated radio transmitter – Jumper T16. It is 16 channel radio with OpenSource JumperTX software, based on OpenTX. The first thing that will be noticed is big 4.3inch color LCD with 480*272px resolution. LCD screen is not touch capable that is why T16 radio has three buttons and scroll wheel for navigation. Radio has six 3-posswitches, two side sliders, two pots and one 6-button flight mode selector that is very handy for APM, Pixhawk and iNav modes control. There is not 100% clear if the radio has internal multiprotocol module, but it for sure has external JR bay for external modules, such as TBS Crossfire and FrSky R9 modules. Jumper T16 will have dual bearing gimbals with adjustable angle. It also has voice support, hapticfeedback, SD card slot and all the bells and whistles.
The T16 radio for sure does not feel as toy. It weights 888 798 grams and is bigger than Jumper T12 – the size of T16 is 180x190x58mm (Jumper T12 – 158x150x58mm, Taranis X9D – 195x185x70mm).
