FrSky Taranis Q X7 Transmitter
FrSky Taranis Q X7 16 Channel 2.4GHz Transmitter for FPV
The FrSky Taranis X9D has been regarded as the King of Transmitters for well over a year. Unprecedented features, reliability and cost made it a benchmark that no manufacturer could compete with. And now, FrSky have outdone themselves again. The Taranis Q X7 arrives from the future (at least it looks like it) to be the successor of the Taranis X9D Plus.
The New King of Transmitters!
The Taranis Q X7 maintains almost all the functionality of the X9D - all the good stuff is still there! You'll be able to enjoy features like powerful open source firmware, extreme customization, telemetry, unparalleled reliability, low latency, backlit screen, voice feedback, scripts, data logging... the list goes on. FrSky really hit the nail on the head with the Taranis Q X7.
Perfect for FPV
The Q X7 is a great choice for the aspiring FPV Pilot. With the voice function enabled, you can receive spoken confirmation of your control inputs. Your radio will let you know if you're starting to fly out of range. You can set up an audible countdown for 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 system is also customizable, so you can record your own audio packs or download a set from the Internet.

The throttle stick now comes with the spring centering removed from the factory! No adjustment needed for Mode 2.
Oh yeah, hands down best value! Came from an old 9x, wow. Having all the switches and such as I need. Very stable idle at 1500us, bound easily to my sbus dr4-ii with fishpeppers opensky firmware. Awesome!
Taranis Q X7, what can I say that hundreds of others haven't? Well, for starters, I don't even have anything to fly yet so I've been using it in sims. I've used it on FPV Freerider and DRL Simulator, i might try Liftoff later but that's 20 bucks and I'd rather put that towards an X4R.
The default config works fine with DRL simulator but you're going to want to go into page 6 (Mixer) and put switch SF on channel 9 and switch SH on channel 10. This will allow you to bind them so you can restart the race and reset your quad. You can use any switch really so long as you're on one of the channels that appear to be a "button" which are channels 9-32 (they get mapped to gamepad buttons 1-24). If you didn't already know, you're going to want to go to the bottom of page 2 and set the internal transmitter mode to "off" so you don't wear the battery down unnecessarily too.
With FPV Freerider you're going to have to go into page 5 and for Throttle, Aileron, Elevator and Rudder, set the Weight to 50 and Offset to 50. FPV Freerider doesn't like negative values or values over 100. DRL Sim is fine with the default -100 to 100 range but FPV Freerider apparently wants 0-100.
Nice job on the BigCommerce store, i run one myself and I like how you've got yours setup. I'll be coming back for more :D
this was a great buy at a great price will be buying more stuff from you guys
Delivery of the product was great, thanks to all the folks of Rotor Riot! Where else can you get a Q X7 in the states with fast two-day ship delivery.
I opted for the least expensive controller and worked on the stick mod myself. Build of the transmitter is good, especially for a beginner like me. I quickly went to look online for mods, already enjoying the sound mod and putting your own music as a playlist and volume control.
This review is more on the service of Rotor Riot. I am now looking for my first flight controller for my first 5" build kwad.
