Very small, lightweight, minimal, yet highly functional! The FRSKY XM+ SBUS Receiver is perfect for FPV racing. It has as good of range as any other FRSKY receiver on the market, with the added benefit of diversity antennas, while also being the smallest and most lightweight (1.6g) option. If you do not use FRSKY telemetry, or you don't know what that is, then this is the receiver for you!
This receiver comes loaded with ACCST V2.1.X Firmware

XM+ receivers work great but can be a problem for beginners for simple reason of binding......most beginners get confused by the leds and relies mostly on signal indicator one transmittor. Since xm+ does not have telemetry that imposes a problem. Performance wise it works great once correct firmware is flashed and bound... Great price ...
I have two of these that is use as redundancy receivers in rc aircreaft and have just ordered a third one.
If they don't bind, you probably need to update the FW first. Easy to do.
Great rx's at a great price.
Great service thank you FR! Order sent out and delivered promptly with good courier service.
Regarding the XM+ - Heads up to newbs like me - check the firmware for your tx and rx. Haven't tested the rx yet because I can't get it working. No doubt the rx works great but I didn't check compatibility and need to flash the rx which my tx is not letting me do. (X9D+). Will update review once I'm flying and have the correct firmwares installed.
Works as stated. Bound perfectly to my Taranis QX7 transmitter. Currently flying on all my quads. I've flown about 500m away from the launch site at ground level and had no range issues whatsoever so the range should be suitable for anyone looking to fly FPV. Would recommend. It does not include wires so make sure that you have some good quality ones that you can use.
