As a portable radio, the FrSky Taranis X9 Lite is a remarkable fusion of traditional radio design with the innovations of the latest ACCESS protocol. For beginners, the wired training function is retained, allowing beginners to improve their skills with the security of an instructors input upon command.
Like the Taranis X-Lite Pro, the new Taranis X9 Lite also uses the latest ACCESS communication protocol, along with ErskyTX / OpenTX open source operating system. It boasts 24 channels with a faster baud rate and lower latency with a high-speed module digital interface. Additional ACCESS features like wireless firmware updates and wireless configurations will be gradually unlocked, providing a more reliable, more secure link between the remote and model, making the X9 Lite a fully functioning remote control with tons of extra features.
The X9 Lite is so affordable yet full-featured, you'll never have to consider unknown and unreliable radios again!
Note: The 18650 battery tray lines up the batteries lengthwise - meaning your 18650 batteries need to be capped to make a connection to each other. If you are using flat ended batteries, you can place a small conductive piece of metal such as copper in between to make a connection.
Note: Please be aware of ACCESS protocol's new features, benefits, and requirements. You can learn all about it on FrSky's official ACCESS page.

This controller gets the job done. In general Frsky has become a pain to deal with. PRC is quick to reply to concerns.
