Oversky XR602T-B3 FrSky D16 receiver

Price: $15.99

XR600 series receiver is a newly designed receiver by Oversky. It has small size (10*17mm), small weight (0.6 gram) but has LNA (LowNoiseAmplifier) so should have longer range control distance compared with other sub gramm receivers on market. Supports online firmware updating (not sure how ?), supports SBUS and F.PORT output at the same time (really ?). So the specs are promising, but someone should test it to verify these statements.

Oversky has whole line of the XR600 series receivers for Flysky, DSM, Futaba and Frsky. The XR602T-B2 receiver works with D8 protocol and XR602T-B3 receiver works with D16 protocol.

Size: 10*17 mm, weight: 0.6 g
Single antenna;
Dynamic LNA control;
Supports SBUS and F.PORT signal output at the same time;
Supports SBUS signal normal phase set up and reversed phase set up;
Supports F.PORT signal normal phase set up and reversed phase set up;
Working voltage: 5V;
Working current: 25mA;



Diatone Mamba MSR receiver

Price: $35 (combo with VTX)



Diatone MSR receiver is almost exact copy the Frsky R-XSR receiver. Uses the same firmware. So you can flash the ACCST FCC or EU/LBT  or even the ACCESS firmware! This receiver comes only in combo with the Diatone TX500 VTX. Also it is very convenient to mount into the stack with supplied 30×30 or 20×20 mounting adapters.


Working Voltage: 3.5- 10V
Working Current: 70mA /5V
Channel: 16CH(1~16CH: SBUS,1~8CH:CPPM)
Size: 24×11.7×4.4mm
Antenna Connector: IPEX4
Protocol: ACCST D16/ ACCESS (needs to be updated with the corresponding protocol)
Product Size: 24×11.7×4.4mm M2(20mm×2)
Weight: 1.6g


Integrated Frsky receivers

In this group you can find the list of “all” the receivers that are integrated into flight controller board. First generation integrated receivers were simply standalone receivers, connected the the flight controllers UART port and working via SBUS protocol. The next generation of integrated receivers work directly with flight controller via SPI port and all the communication protocol has been managed by main MCU. SPI interface is fast, flight controllers firmware gets the channels values directl, thus this receiver type is the fastest and has lowest lattency from all the receivers.  This feature has BetaFlight and iNav firmwares only (up to date).


Skystars F4 AIO with integrated FrSky receiver

Price: $30.00 (discontinued)

 Pretty ordinary F4 flight controller in Whoop size format. Supports 1S-2S batteries, 5A ESC’s and MPU-6000 gyro. It has integrated FrSky receiver working in SPI mode. The most interesting fact is that this F4 AIO board has CC2500 receiver chip with SE2431L PA/LNA amplifier chip. This should enable to get the increased receiving range. Unfortunately Skystars decided to solder unefficient simple enameled copper wire as antenna. I quess the range could be increased if normal antenna is used instead.

Built-in Frsky Receiver
– Built-in Frsky receiver is compatible with Taranis, Taranis Plus, X9E, Horus X12S, XJT Modules.
(Pay attention, this is a SPI connection receiver. )
– In Betaflight Configuration, it should be setted as FRSKY_D receiver (aka Frsky D8 mode)
or FRSKY_X receiver (aka Frsky D16 mode) in SPI RX mode.
– The Frsky D16 unstable connection issue is totally resolved since Betaflight 3.4.1.
Nowadays, the default configuration from factory is Frsky D16 mode (FRSKY_X).
