@3djc - Good info. Many thanks.

@RocketMouse - In my book, you pretty much hit the mark with your complaints about FrSky. However, as I see it, the play by Jumper and RM is all about price. Neither has revealed any significant original IP. And (assuming they are in fact separate enterprises), the one is already undercutting the other. Let's see if this model can produce anything new of merit.

Done with Frsky


On my 2nd Taranis and have loved it but my heart belongs to Open TX. I am now feeling way too manipulated to stay loyal to Frsky, which is why I was never a Specky fan either. I will buy a RM or Jumper depending on internal charging and whenever the virus settles down. BTW, I just got 3, Jumper R8 rx's for $12 each from Grayson and they seem way more than acceptable. I have bound them in D8 and the D16 format, all good.

Am I correct in thinking that the Jumper tx’s wouldn’t be in existence were it not for their copying/cloning of Frsky products in the first place?

No. E.g. T8SG.

That is not based on FrSky indeed, but on Walkera...

Speaking of T8SG...

Looks like they are coming out with T12 and T8SG type radios too

TX12 will, not TX8, but that coming soon is really more to be understood as coming next

Just to be clear, inverters are only needed because FC manufacturers put an interface onboard which is incompatible to the standard (SBus). Thus such complaints you should address to the stupid FC manufacturer. Or you better select an FC which accepts an SBus standard signal.

Nope. Just to be clear, SBUS should not be inverted. The only stupid here is Futaba who inverted serial protocol. Which is complete nonsense.

OK thanks. Something like the TS8G but running OpenTX would be nice, but overkill for most people I guess.

If that's the case, I've made some corrections to HP's announcement.
