For those with smaller, weight critical aircraft FrSky have released the Mini LiPo Voltage Sensor w/ Smartport, a mini version of the FLVSS and designed to collect battery data which can be transmitted via the smart port of telemetry-enabled receivers such as X8R, X6R, X4R, etc to a Taranis transmitter
This sensor has been designed and developed by FrSKY to collect important flight information and performance data which can then be transmitted via the SMART PORT of telemetry-enabled receivers such as X8R, X6R, X4R, etc to a Taranis Transmitter.
FrSKY High Precision Vario Sensor monitors atmospheric pressure and reports altitude and changes in pressure, indicating lift which is invaluable if you want to catch thermals with your RC plane.
The FrSky High Precision Variometer measures the rate of change of altitude by detecting the change in air pressure (static pressure) as altitude changes. When used with the FrSky Taranis transmitter you can create a true glider vario with tones that indicate lift and sink, a feature usually costing several hundred dollars for other radio systems.
This particular Telemetry Sensor incorporates a GPS module to provide useful variable directional information such a position, speed, distance, altitude and UTC time which can then be displayed in real time on FrSky's Taranis transmitters, it can also be logged onto the radio's SD card. This location data is particularly useful for "lost aircraft situations" providing you with the coordinates of the your lost model if its still in radio range or its last known position if not.
The FrSky Smart Port Current Sensor has been designed to work with FrSky Smart Port enabled receivers to provide real time telemetry data for your radio. It can measure current (A) up to 40 amps and battery voltage (V) when connected between a battery and an ESC. The sensor is fitted with XT60 male and female connectors and a male to male JR type lead is also supplied.
- Can measure Current (A), Power Consumption (mAH) and Power (W) and Voltage (V).
- Compatible with FrSky Smart Port enabled receivers, such as X8R, X6R, X4R, etc.
This particular sensor is used to read the voltage of an external battery eg. LiPo flight battery, video or other accessory battery. Combined with a Taranis radio you can monitor your LiPo voltage during flight and set alarms to warn you before voltage drops to dangerous levels.
The FrSky SBUS to CPPM Converter can convert SBUS signals into a CPPM output. This can be very handy for connecting SBUS receivers to flight contollers and other devices that only offer CPPM inputs such as the APM and Naze32.
Compatible with recievers that feature the SBUS port. Some examples are the FrSky X series (X8R, X6R) receivers and the Futaba S.BUS receivers (R6208SB, and others) as well as others.
A jumper switches between 21ms and 28ms.
If you're looking for a way to use a conventional servo with an SBUS system then the FrSky SDI converter is the device to use. The SD1 can be used as an SBUS decoder to convert the SBUS signal to the conventional PWM servo signal. Otherwise, you need to use an SBUS compatible servo.
FrSky recommends using the Servo Channel Changer to set the desired channel for your servos.
A 6 position rotary knob for the FrSky X9D Transmitter.
The 6 position switch can be installed in place of your S1 or S2 pots at the top of your Taranis radio. The result will be a 6 position rotary knob that can be used for flight modes with the APM / Pixhawk, flap positions, selecting PID profiles or whatever you can think of. Users asked for this feature, and FrSky listened. Soldering is required to swap out this switch - instructions here.
