I do wonder how the V3 system from FlyDream works compared to the older version that Bruce had tested.

We shouldn't hijack the FRSky thread.

The fact that FD lacks telemetry alone is enough to not compare it with FrSky.
In this moment the only market competitor is Hitec.
Jeti is out of game in US because it lacks FCC.

I take it the dual telemetry stuff is specific in that the receivers will be changed as well ?

Just wondering should I wait for the new version, anyone got an idea on release date

If you login you get a discounted selling price, some 2-3$ less than the shown values.
Unfortunately, no 8ch receivers in stock atm.
Shipping for a combo could be as low as $10 worlwide.

Thanks for the link.

I am going to wait for the telemetry version.

Huum, I didnt the telemetry was on the market - yet?

That is a big discriminator (I lost a plane that likely wouldn't have crashed if I knew the receiver voltage was low).

I do have to say that I am impressed that Chase from FrSky is on this forum - I like that he is paying attention to his customers (current and potential) and representing his company so well.

so when are the HV RXs coming out? I just ordered one of the Frsky systems from Himodel but I plan on running 2S Lipos or 2S Li-ion on my 50cc or 100cc plane down the road. As of now I can run 2s a123's but what if I wanted to move up to 3S ones?

I'd like to put FrSky in my Multiplex Evo (upgraded to Pro but with v2.60, not v3.3). It seems the connections are easy but I'm concerned about the physical fitting of the module and aerial/antenna. The result must look reasonably neat and I don't want to be turned away from fly-ins because of doubts about its CE status

Someone must have done this ?

Hi,

The HV version receiver would be available in next month, and
marked with "HV".

Best regards
