FrSky has succeeded in introducing a transmitter at an entry level price that outperforms many of the best name brand systems on the market. This new SPECIAL EDITION Taranis includes all the latest and best hardware from FrSky. The SPECIAL EDITION includes upgraded M9 Hall Sensor Gimabls, customzied M4 CNC Aluminum Gimbal stick ends, unique custom shell design, detachable SMA Antenna, upgraded switches, and a special edition zipper case!
The most important aspect for any transmitter is maintaining a rock solid connection with the receiver. FrSky is well known for the frequency hopping ACCST technology taking advantage of the entire 2.4GHz band resulting in excellent range and reliability. FrSky knows many things can affect the connection between Transmitter and receiver so RSSI (receiver signal strength indication) is incorporated into all telemetry receivers. The Taranis transmitter is continually monitoring the reception quality at the aircraft. Taranis will alert the pilot before signal quality becomes critical.

Sooooo Good review by Louis on 8/26/2017
This radio is so good that I gave it 5 stars and haven't even received it yet!
Loaded with features my JR 12x doesn't have. review by Proteus_x3 on 7/31/2017
Just made the switch from Spektrum /Jr radio's to Taranis. I will still use my JR 12X for wing wing aircraft,but for drone this is the radio too use.My only complaint about this radio is the openTX firmware and STM32boot loader This my second Taranis X9Dplus
My current one is SNAFU my PC crashed while I was updating my Firmware to 2.2.0 ,so I lost my back-up files and bricked my transmitter,just bad luck on my part.The lack of a US base repair center is I major disappointment,I'll fix it,but I want too fly now!
Great Radio and this is the place to buy it. review by Anatoly on 7/9/2017
I would have given it five stars, but when I received the radio, one switch was missing and radio was making rattling noise when shacked. When I opened it up I found one switch got unscrewed and fell into the radio. This is clearly manufacturers shortcoming nothing to do with GetFPV store. Radio needed speaker upgrade, current SE version has original low quality speaker. Range test did well. I head a lot of people had range issues with similar radio form banggood. That's shy I recommend buying it here to avoid getting a clone from China.
Oh man! review by David on 6/25/2017
Despite all people having one of these and mixed reviews, I bought something else and regreted it.
This is it, this radio is great,easy to setup, openTX is also nice for those that like customiztion, and the skin selection... way to make it special FrSky. It feels better than my Futaba 10J for a lot less. So happy.
Great Value review by Cole C on 5/11/2017
For the price of upgraded gimbals, upgraded switches, removable antenna, soft case and the custom shell you would be into a X9D+ for over $300!
Gimbals are smooth and center precisely.
Upgraded switches are different from the X9D+ But not significant .
Hydro dipping on the transmitter shell is nice without defects.
Soft case is nice and is marked "special edition"
This radio does come with the switch marking sticker pack uninstalled. Easy to install as there are now recessed spots for the SF/SE SH/SG switch stickers. I ordered a 6 position switch and installed it. I also upgraded to OpenTX 2.1.9 with no complications. Overall very happy!

This Radio with the graphics and new hardware is unbeatable for the price, I would also say that it will be a collectors item in the future.
