The Q X7S Radio Controller is the latest radio in the FrSky Taranis range to be updated to the new ACCESS protocol and at the same time they've converted the battery compartment to use 2x 18650 Li-Ion cells and added support for USB battery charging.
The new ACCESS communication protocol that comes preinstalled as standard on the Q X7S radio also brings with it a whole host of new features. The radio now boasts 24 channels with a faster baud rate and lower latency thanks to its high-speed module digital interface. As with the rest of the ACCESS transmitters, it provides a secure and reliable link, along with wireless firmware updating making it fully compatible with FrSky's newest line of OTA receivers.
If you want to use the ACCST protocol, D16 is supported so you can continue to use your existing X-series receivers without updating. D8 protocol (common for older micro quads) is no longer supported but the Q X7S does have a JR module bay so you could install the external XJT Module or a multi-protocol module to bind with D8 receivers. Finally, long range radio control modules like TBS Crossfire and FrSky R9M are also compatible.
The FrSky Taranis Q X7S is the next step on from the original Taranis Q X7. It also keeps all the great features of the Taranis Q X7 and adds even more. The Taranis Q X7S ACCESS version features Hall-sensor gimbals and the PARA wireless trainer function, making it compatible with the FrSky Free Link App and AirLink S, while the wired training port is still retained. It still has all the usual Taranis features such as Receiver Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) alerts, Real-time Flight Data Telemetry, Receiver Matching and Super Low Latency for precision flying.
The biggest improvement found on the Q X7S radio over the Q X7 is the upgraded gimbals. It uses Hall Sensor M7 gimbals rather than the standard potentiometer type gimbals found on the Q X7 and other lower cost radios. Hall sensor technology provides much better precision for control and don't wear out nearly as quickly, if at all - learn more about their advantages here. The Hall Sensor gimbals can be retrofitted to the original X7, but they cost about £40 for a set (here), and then there is the time to fit them. The gimbals are adjustable, so you can determine what flying mode to set the radio to and also if you want self-centering spring-loaded sticks (standard) or the usual stationary set throttle.
The Taranis mixes the power of the “OPEN TX” open-source software with upgraded 6 programmable switches (4 x 3-position, 1 x 2-position, 1 x momentary) and two twist knobs. This is great for setting up your switches and controls just how you want them.
Using the MicroSD card slot you have unlimited model memory options and you can copy and use all your existing model files from the older TARANIS X9D/X9D Plus/X9E/X7 making it easy to get the new system up and working. The X7S also has a USB port for connecting to a PC for settings adjustments / upgrades and for flying with simulators.
Using the wheel and center enter button makes navigating the backlit menu easy and precise. There is an audio jack output and trainer port. A new addition to the Taranis Q X7S is the Bluetooth wireless trainer function and it is compatible with FrSky Freelink phone app to monitor the sensor data during the flight.
Like the Taranis X9D-Plus, this radio also features a Haptic Vibration Feedback System. Alerts such as low signal warnings and count down timers etc can be presented in the form of audio speech outputs, sound or vibration alerts making this extremely user-friendly.
The radio supports up to 24-channels and there is a module bay that can be used for JR-type modules with other protocol receivers and also for the use of a FrSky XJT module.
The radio comes complete with a soft travel case.
Overall the FrSky Taranis Q X7S is a lightweight, reliable, very versatile radio system that is very cost effective.
