In today’s article we are going to talk about some of the products that frsky has, what they are called and what they are for apart from also providing some photos of them.
We will start talking about stations and these I divide into two groups: 1-stations for the realization of leisure and hobbies
In this subgroup I place the stations with a lower cost and that have some fewer functions than the high-end ones, but that for recreational flight they fulfill their function without problem. Some examples are the taranis xlite, the taranis x9d plus, taranis qx7, the new taranis x9 lite / lite s
2-stations more professional to handle more complex models and of a higher cost.
In this group we are already talking about stations with a higher cost but we are also talking about an increase in functions considerably. They have hall effect gimballs, incorporate very intuitive and color screens, things that those of a lower cost do not incorporate, they incorporate a transmission system and improved reception so you can enjoy the flight without worrying that the station may fail safe from one moment to the next.
We continue the article and we are going to talk about receivers and we are going to see that this company has a great variety of models according to the needs of each pilot and the needs they require and the number of channels of the aircraft that we are going to use for our activity. I will also divide it into two large groups of sbus receivers for racing drones and fpv wings and then the pwm receivers for airplanes since these need to connect the servos to the receiver and the variator through the 3-wire connector known as the servo cable.
Receivers with sbus output; These receivers only incorporate 3 cables or 4 if they have telemetry, they are usually a positive cable (+) that is usually red, then the black cable that is the negative (-) and a white or yellow cable that is usually the signal cable sbus.
Example: xm, xm +, rxsr, xsr, x4r
Receivers with pwm signal output. These receivers usually incorporate a plastic box that protects the electronics and usually have 3 metal pins per channel. These outputs are usually connected to the esc by which the receiver is fed and to this also the servos and other sensors are connected
Examples: x8r, x6r, s6r, s8r, d8r
Video transmitters; frsky markets a video transmitter called vs600. The VS600 is the first video transmitter developed by the FrSky team. The 48-Channel Video Transmitter features 3 power settings (25mW / 200mW / 600mW) and a very useful Pit Mode that allows users to turn it on at low power (1mW) to change settings and test during racing events without the fear. to interfere with other users. The selection of your Operating Bands and Channels is easily adjusted with two buttons and the LED indicators are easy to read.
The antenna cable with UFL connection can easily be placed in the optimal location. Exceptionally, the VS600 has 2 different mounting hole options on 1 plate, 31mm spacing and 20mm spacing. One of the most useful features is that all settings can be fully adjusted using OpenTX Lua Script and the FrSky FreeLink application.
