While it's not intended as an entry level radio, FrSKY will be entering the Radio Market in April. The Official name of their first radio is not known, but it will be 9 Channels. Will have open source software, an ARM Cortex 4.0 processor, speaker, headphone jack, microSD card slot, be speech capable, telemetry logging capable, PXX -- a new digital communications protocol that will bind the transmitter to the receiver -- similar to model match -- it will be capable of running two different transmission protocols - and most receivers have built in diversity an the two antennas. Built in USB, Haptic alarms, Multi language (at least German, English, French, and some others I can't remember). Price? big mystery -- but expect to be shocked at how affordable. The Open9x and ER9x crew have been working like crazy to have open source software ready for it right from the start. FrSKY has been working WITH the 9x community on this project, rather than forking their work as was recently done on another recent low priced transmitter. Later in the year FrSKY will have a 12 ch and later yet a 16 channel that will blow my socks off. What is really attractive about this transmitter is that when your lowest cell on your quad battery hits whatever threashold you set the transmitter can be set to shake and yell at you -- literally.
Stay tuned -- I think this transmitter will do for the radio what Copter Control has done for the multicopter.
So no 'new' news then .
