Mike,

Is there any reason why we shouldn't all be buying FrSky?

I'm a Futaba guy thinking of making the switch.

I was too with a Futaba 9C Super and 12FG. Sold all my FASST stuff and financed a change to FrSky telemetry. Very pleased.

I think everyone is hoping for some info. Moving, from a standard brand because the TX is pretty, needs more substance. What do you like about it, quirks, receiver brown out tolerance, range? Need nuts and bolts of why.

Nice appearing but as TFF states we need some info like what RX's will work with it, etc.? I use Fr Sky RX's for my Hitec A9 from Aloft and have no problems as well as good service.

ANYONE ACTUALLY USING ONE OF THESE?

Went to Aloft's site, it sure has a lot of good features and might be something I would consider if I needed such. At $550.00, well I would have to do a lot of comparisons for what I actually need, my Hitec A9 has given great service
and has features I never will use. At the age of 73 I would confuse myself with something new and complex.

I think in the RC industry the best way to describe the Horus X12S is “disruptive technology”. Disruptive technology is technology that comes into a stable existing market and turns it upside-down because of new advanced features or price points.

The Horus X12S has all metal CNC 6 ball bearing gimbals with high precision Hall Effect angle sensors. The X12S is one of three systems in the market place that have all metal CNC gimbals with Hall Effect angle sensors. The other two are Jeti and Weatronic. The Hours X12S build quality is very high end, but is 1/3 or less than the price of its nearest competitors.

Unlike the Jeti that has unbundled features that cost extra the Horus X12S comes with a full feature set and the choice of the native menu driven FrTX OS or the OpenTX OS. The Horus X12S has an impressive list of features including features not found on the nearest competing systems like a built in GPS, TX antenna SWR, software selectable internal or external antenna, external module bay, etc.. The color display is stunning and very visible in direct sunlight..

The Horus X12S works with the existing FrSky telemetry ecosystem, can support redundant RF paths, RBUS receiver redundancy and up to 32 channels. As an existing FrSky Taranis user I just bound all my existing X receivers to the Horus X12S and configured the models. By default all the FrSky X receivers have built in telemetry for the RX battery, real time RSSI and a smart port for plugging in sensors.

The only problem with the Hours X12S is finding one to buy because FrSky cannot keep up with the demand.

Well as far as the specs go, Horus uses the same software and RF link as the Taranis and you can get a good feel for that on that "other site" where there's thousands of satisfied users and literally thousands and thousands of posts on at least 5 separate threads about Taranis. Just won't give you Horus Tx feel specifics.

I have been flying my Futaba 9C with a Frsky Module for years with no problem. I am now flying all my airplanes with Frsky receiver. I was out of flying for a few years due to health reasons. Now that I am back, I will be getting the FrSky Tranis 9D. I can see no reason Not to switch. Not the Horus, but all I need.
