FrSky X-Lite RC Transmitter for FPV Race Pilots

January 30, 2018 14:44 | By | Add a Comment

It was only a matter of time before the form factor of the Turnigy Evolution caught on. Styled after console controllers, these are the perfect blend of RC flying and gaming. After the iRangeX multi-protocol transmitter came out recently, FrSky have announced their version of a new ergonomic transmitter for FPV pilots, the X-Lite.

We don’t have much info beyond the fact that it runs OpenTX, which means the UI should be snappy and streamlined. The battery on the X-Lite is said to be replaceable, and it has a dual antenna setup (one internal, one external). In addition to supporting USB, MicroSD cards and featuring a headphone output, the X-Lite is said to also support external transmitter modules… somehow. The LCD is 128×64, so not exactly a giant screen – not that such a transmitter needs it.

Oh and the X-Lite is reported to feature hall effect gimbals (!)

Right now Banggood.com has a placeholder offer with a fantasy price of 999 dollars, but the actual street price is rumored to be around 120 USD. If this is true, then this could be a breakthrough product. We don’t expect this to be a full range transmitter, but here’s hoping.

We’ll update this post as we learn more.
