This is the new and very powerful FrSky Taranis RC X9D Plus radio system. The Plus version comes with the brand new heavy-duty aluminum travel case. The case has thick brushed aluminum sides with a stronger outer frame. The radio also includes a Haptic Vibration Feedback System which provides an alternative feedback system to the existing voice and sound. If you are a club member this is a welcome addition without annoying your fellow club members. The Plus also includes a dual color LCD back-lit screen, allowing you to adjust from white to blue. Each radio ships with the newest firmware version to support the new haptic vibration feedback system. This combo includes the FrSky X8R 16ch Receiver with SBUS, Smart Port and Amplified PCB Antennas.
Note: The SWR check of the transmitter antenna is no longer available.
When it comes to possibilities the Frsky TARANIS sets a new standard. FrSky is well known for their frequency hopping ACCST technology, that takes advantage of the entire 2.4GHz band, resulting in excellent range and reliability, they now offer their first full transmitter system.
The TARANIS mixes the power of the “OPEN TX” open-source software with an unbelievable ergonomic case with 8 programmable switches, two twist knobs and two easy to get to lateral 'slider' pots, and not to mention the ultra-smooth quad bearing gimbals.
The TARANIS utilizes Voice Alerts from an internal speaker, versus just an annoying beeper. For things like; audible Count down timers, low voltage warnings, landing gear down warnings etc., just about anything can be programmed, you can even use your own voice. The SD card slot offers unlimited memory options and a USB port for upgrades even a headphone jack.
One of the best features of the TARANIS is its full telemetry capability, as well as RSSI signal strength feedback, there are 3 different programmable fail-safe modes and receiver lock, so no more crashes due to selecting the wrong model. If you have stock in other brand receivers or BNF’s, no worries the TARANIS has a JR style RF module slot, so you have the option of other brand modules such as the Orange DSM2/DSMX or Open LRS 433mhz module, or pop in another Frsky module to expand the transmitters capabilities even more with duel RF.
When you put it all together, between FrSky ACCST technology and the power of “OPEN TX” software and community, a ergonomic case with ultra-smooth smooth ball bearing gimbals and a large back-lit LCD with a included aluminum case and battery pack. You have versatility and power at an unprecedented value.

Good combo, great price, fast shipping. Open TX. Nuf said. review by Mike on 12/14/2016
The best price I have found. The combo shipped fast and upon arrival and unboxing everything was in great condition. The Taranis is working amazing so far and the Open Tx is exciting to be able to mess with. The X8R is a nice addition and the case is handy and is lockable with keys provided. I also got a bunch of stickers from getFPV with the order which is awesome!
Top notch radio! review by Jason on 12/27/2015
This radio does everything imaginable! You can change the Text to Speech voice, adjust PID's to your quadcopter, and save a ton of different settings for different models! I even hooked it up to my computer and played a video game with it!!!!!!!
The case is very durable and has a ton of room! I can keep all my essential tools for the field in the case!
The receiver that comes with the set is hardcore! But a little too big and too many features for a simple quad setup. But it works if its all you have! I am pretty sure you could modify it to make it smaller.
Hands down, best transmitter I have ever used.
Very pleased! review by Joshua on 10/16/2015

Customizing options unlimited review by Marcus on 8/28/2015
I had an orangerx transmitter from HK and it did the job for beginning in RC. After looking at lots of reviews it was down to the this transmitter and spektrum dx6. While the spektrum has more model memory and the taranis has more channels I went with the taranis not for any of these reasons. They both have tele but the taranis works with their rx alone without needing to get another plug in module (voltage and RSSI). Going with the spektrum would allow me to use my existing orangerx receiver but the taranis receivers are fairly reasonable and most include tele. The customization is endless... It comes with a voice package and it works well but I wanted something different and found yoda-ish voice pack from some similar geek and as long as you follow directions it works well. There's also a popular female voice pack that most seem to like to use. You can also add your own splash screen and low res pics of your plane/quad. There's tons of how-to vids on youtube and lots of info to be found in forums. I watched most of Painless360's vids, very good. If there's a downside to this it's that it's not as plug and play as others may be. I put in a lot of time watching videos and reading forums to find out what this thing can do and how to do it. If you don't want to put in a little time and effort this may not be the option for you. There's no one transmitter thats a fit all. If you want plug and play this may not be for you but if you like to tinker a little its a great transmitter. There's lots of things on it that I am still figuring out.
you can't go wrong with this radio combo! review by James on 3/25/2015
Well, I have had this radio and transmitter combo for a while. At first it was a bit daunting trying to figure it out. Had to stop thinking JR style radio (old Jr with a frsky module in it). The programing soft was helps a lot. But one you get the hang of it, it is a breeze to use. Have 2 different quads, and an airplane on it so far.
