FrSky Taranis X9D Plus TX w/ soft case (Mode 2)
Behold, the King of Transmitters!
With enough features for a 3 hour long infomercial, the Taranis takes a huuuuuuuge step forward and leaves the competition in the dust. And it does it at a fraction of the price of equivalent radios. But wait, there's more!
The Taranis X9D Plus is probably the most customizable transmitter in the galaxy. You can set up mixes, alarms, timers, vibration, notifications, countdowns, telemetry logs, scripts… you could even make it say “Daaaaaaaaaaaam!” every time you punch the throttle.
The telemetry function sends real-time data from your quad, like battery status and signal strength, right to your transmitter screen. It can also save this information to a log file for future examination. The LCD display has a nifty backlight that you can set to be blue or white or something in between.
If you're an FPV'er like us, you'll especially enjoy the futuristic voice capability of the X9D Plus. With the voice function enabled, you can receive spoken confirmation of your control inputs. Your radio will tell you if you're starting to fly out of range. You could get an audible countdown when your flight timer is near the end. Your radio can tell you the voltage of your flight pack at the flick of a switch. The voice is also customizable, so if you'd rather record your own audio packs or download a set from the internet, you can do so.
While the capabilities of the X9D Plus are nearly endless, there's a bit of a learning curve to mastering all it’s functions - fortunately there are plenty of guides and tutorials available to walk you through both basic setups and advanced functions. There's also a program available for download that makes setup a lot easier. Since the firmware is open source, you can even make your own adjustments to the code if that's your kind of thing. If there’s one radio that can do it all, it’s the Taranis X9D Plus.
