New tx is compatable with the old rx so no.

X9D inherited case unfortunately force the usage of standard 8 cells blocks universal known as transmitter pack, either Ni or Li.
WOW ...

How is possible to use RenatoA for state something wrong ...

8 cells blocks ... it means 3S or 8 NiMh

So ...

Anyhow ... consensus is : just deliver a TX without a battery inside ... leave people free (by design flexibility) to use what they prefer

You shouldn't get anyone words as reference, until you see something on the shelf.
Those posts are there as proof how was this radio thought initially, and how evolved due to your feedback. Else would edit them all to match the final product.

Would'nt use a lipo in a transmitter, eneloops or the latest 2500mah VP Instants are the best and last for ages.

I don't really care what kind of battery it ships with. Make it cheap, and allow the transmitter to accept a wide voltage range.

If we want to stick a LiFE battery in there ourselves we can, if we want to stick a Lipo pack we can. If we want to replace the original batteries with eneloops we would be able to.

My Futaba 7C came with a NiMH pack, which I replaced with a LiFE battery. I don't mind having to take it out once a month to charge it on an external charger that I already own.

I heard that the new futabas will come with LiPo batteries and battery cutoff protection system Don't know whether is true or not but hope FrSky don't do this kind of mistake..

I hope the new transmitter will be compatible with the old V8 series receivers . I already have a V8R8Hv and two V8R7's And it would be nice it switching to the V8 protocol and back to teh telemetry receivers was handled by the model memory.

What would be nice is if you can make the switch in software as with the DHT-U -- and I suspect that will be the case.

Agreed. We also need the capability to vary the low voltage alarm position to take into account differences in the minimum voltages of each cell chemistry.

I also expect the radio to have all alarms, RF modes, mixes, etc to be tied to the model being flown.

They will have "Receiver Lock", similar to Model Matching, but with the FrSky twist.

That would be on the 16 channel full duplex but would the legacy 8 have model matching rather Rx lock?

If it is switching the transmitter to "proper" model based on what receiver it is detected - I hope it is a recommendation AND not an automatic switch assuming I am reading between the lines here...

All of the FrSky transmitters will have this feature. The existing modules do not as it requires more then just a module to do this.
