Rumors: RX8R Pro, R9 Pilot, R9S & R9 Slim

FrSky announced some information about their upcomming receivers for their long range R9M transmitter – RX8R Pro, R9 Pilot, R9S & R9 Slim.  Some key points: RX8R Pro has increased performance in a strong interference environment, such as noise from glow plug ingnition system. R9 Pilot has port for connecting GPS, F7 FC and has Return to home (RTH) functions. R9S has gyro and features auto stabilisation mode for fixed wings. R9 Slim is the smallest and lightest long range receiver with the weight of 2.2g only. All of them support Redundancy feature, have S.Port and UART inputs, SBUS and PWM outputs.

Here are the specifications for these receivers:
