I just saw this on Instagram

I love the tan colours, if it's light and has the same grips on the back as the X7, I'd be tempted to pick one up for a butchers at it.

It is amazing how many new products they have created in the last year.

Hmm, wonder what the pricepoint is.

Could well be the effective X9D+ replacement looking at what it's got in terms of controls

Since the X9D SE is 230 here in the UK I'm gonna guess at 299-350, whatcha think?

They did a pretty good job of delivering the Taranis Q X7 shortly after the "coming soon" announcement.

As a horus owner Im sure glad they didnt add more features over the 12 . i wouldnt be happy . Is it just me but it looks a little plasticy and cheap . It may well not be the case in real life . i must admit i wasnt keen on the Horus looks at 1st but now i like it . Cheers

looks a lot less plasticky and cheap than the X9D does, and I'm suspecting it's replacing the X9D+ in the line (we'll know for sure when we see pricing).

thanks to Frsky for considering all my suggestions otherwise you would have not invested time and money developing new products because for fanboys the weight and prehistoric NiMh battery was perfect.
I also said that accelerometers and GPS were not very useful and back sliders should be placed sideways
Now I need to know if the Tx hook is made out of cheap plastic and if there is a ball bearing under the roller/ wheel

it depends on the battery capacity... I wonder if there is a module bay on the back

it looks like a mix of the 3 transmitters. X12 display, X9 SE gimbals and X7 look...let me speculate. $349

Yes, you were the only person to suggest these changes and are solely responsible for the design decisions. None of the views of the hundreds of others who commented here and elsewhere and who emailed FRSKY and dealers suggesting modifications had any bearing on what was incorporated into the new design. Next you'll be expecting royalties.

How come you don't know? A minute or so ago you were telling us how you designed it.
