Deck out your transmitter! With every transmitter purchase you receive a FT lanyard and 5-pack sticker pack.

This is the new Taranis Q X7 radio by FrSky. It is a lower cost and simplified version of the widely popular FrSky Taranis radio, and operates on OpenTX just as the Taranis does. The Q X7 features a modern new and sleek look along with a easy to navigate menu and intuitive scroll wheel and button controls.

The radio includes a Haptic Vibration Feedback System which provides an alternative feedback system to the voice and sound alert warnings. This 16 channel radio has smooth ball bearing gimbals and is loaded with six switches and two knobs. It runs on OpenTX and files can be shared with the popular X9D Plus. The MicroSD card slot offers unlimited model memory options, it also has a USB port for upgrades and to connect to a PC for adjusting settings. Both sticks come with spring loaded return to center sticks, this makes changing from mode 1 to mode 2 extremely easy to set through the menu and the stick can quickly be set to a stationary throttle by unscrewing four screws and removing a spring. One of the best features of the Taranis Q X7 is its full telemetry capability, as well as RSSI signal strength feedback. Wheel and center enter button makes navigating the backlit menu easy and precise. Equipped with an audio jack output and trainer port as well. And of course a module bay for use with JR-type modules that can be used with other protocol receivers and with the use of an FrSky XJT module this radio can support up to 32-channels. Other features include Receiver Match, Real-Time Flight Data Logging and Super Low Latency for precision flying.Overall this Radio has the features of more expensive transmitters at an unprecedented value.

Taranis QX7

Upgraded from the Spektrum DX6i. Nothing against the Spektrum family of transmitters and receivers. The DX6i was just lacking in bells and whistles for the projects I am using it for. The Taranis has been a challenge so far. Thankfully there is a HUGE community of people looking to assist you if there are difficulties setting things up. This youtube channel walks you through setup and programming really well. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiYYhnH4BhI-ot9OQ9djvRaacFHboFqC2 The QX7 was out of stock so I opted for email notification when they received more. I placed my order minutes after receiving the notification. Shipping was prompt and the transmitter arrived in good condition. Flite Test was out of stock on rechargeable batteries so I opted for this https://www.readymaderc.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=84_233&products_id=6474 Overall I am very happy with my purchase and I will continue to support Flite Test whenever possible.

Taranis Q X7

Been playing around with this transmitter for about a week now - coming from my Flysky/Turnigy TH9X/9X that I hack-flashed with OpenTX. I've mostly been using it to fly my UltraMicro Corsair and (moreso) TinyWhoop. OpenTX: If you have a basic understanding of a computerized transmitter functions (Mixes, channel setup, etc...), or are just willing to learn, you'll find the interface very intuitive. The fact that you can program the switches that activate a feature by moving the switch is one of my favorite features. Switches: All of the switches on the "deck" (4 of them) are three position switches - definitely a step-up from my old transmitter that only had one. Now I can have hi/med/lo rates, and have flaps on three position switches! External Module bay: I've been using an OrangeRX DSM2/DSMX/Walkera module in both my old transmitter and this Taranis. For some reason, I would often have binding problems with the old transmitter, but the OrangeRX module seems to just "behave" better with the Taranis. Not sure why that is, but the external module bay is definitely a good feature to have. Comes with a "blank" cover installed if you won't be using an external module. Neck strap: Comes with a neck strap, and a counterbalance hook thing. Works well, no complaints. Battery bay: Runs off AA batteries, of course. Battery life has been pretty good so far. Maybe later down the road I'll design and 3d-print a battery pack adapter to replace the batteries and back panel... in the meantime, AAs work fine. There are videos out there that talk about how to remove the battery tray to nestle-in a LiPi if you want. Grip/comfort: Rubberized grips on the back are comfy. I fly with my thumbs, if that makes a difference for you. The potentiometers might be a bit of a reach if you have smaller hands, that depends on how often (or if) you use them. SD card?! I haven't played with this feature much yet, but you can set custom sounds, the radio will dictate telemetry information to you, etc... useful for FPV flying, or if you just don't want to take your eyes off the plane. The transmitter has a headphone jack in it, I assume you'd hear the speaker output through there. It says "welcome to Open T X" in a sort of GLaDOS voice when you boot it up. REMEMBER: it does not come with an SD card, you have to install your own and download the content from the FrSky website. USB: It has a USB jack. I've read that it can be used for flight simulators on the computer. Haven't tried it yet, but I would probably get a 90deg adapter for the USB port so the cord isn't pointing right into you while sitting at the computer. Wishes: I could go for another momentary switch, though it seems like the standard for most radios is a single momentary switch for buddy-boxing. I suspect swapping one of the three position switches for a momentary switch wouldn't be too hard. OVERALL: If you're looking for your first computerized radio or maybe looking to upgrade from an el-cheapo radio, this would definitely serve you well. It has plenty of features that you can use and grow into. My understanding is that it uses the same built-in radio module as the Taranis X9D, so there's precedence for reliability and quality. So far, I would definitely recommend this radio. There will always be more expensive radios out there, but this is a solid option at a great price-point. FT team: any chance we could get transmitter cases on the store? I would definitely buy one - especially if I know it would fit my radio correctly.
