I ordered one for a review. I am building a new micro brushless quad and I think it will be a great match :-)

In theory, but I would not call the specced 1km range "full" - that's nowhere near enough to use this as a satellite in a larger model, especially gliders that will be flown a long way away.

It should perform just like any other X series regarding range.

Maybe, but the fact it is specced for at least 30% less range would indicate that is not the case.

No, you read again. They state the XM+ is "full range" but the actual quoted range is 1km. Now compare that to an X4R or X8R, which they say has >1.5km. By my maths that is at minimum a 33% reduction in range...

You can flash via the SBUS-port. same as you do with e.g. sensors via smartport.
