Frsky and Eachine together have released new receiver – XSR-M (Also known as XSR-E). It is genuine Frsky product as it is listed on the Frsky website: http://www.frsky-rc.com/media/mediaItem.php?m_id=61. This receiver works in D16 mode, it means up to 16CH. Also has diversity antennas, full telemetry, SmartPort and probably RSSI over one of the channels. Receiver has 3 LED indicators for easier status display. It can be configured to output CPPM or SBUS signal. It also has RSSI pads for hardwiring the RSSI signal for some OSD systems. Very interesting product. The only concern is mounting hole spacing – it is 15x15mm, keep it in mind while selecting appropriate frame and other components.
Note the writing “Frsky Eachine XSR-M” on the original Frsky RX:
MultirotorGuide will be reviewing this receiver, so stay tuned.
