The FrSky Taranis X9D Plus 2019 is a re-designed version with additions like an additional momentary button placed on the top left shoulder making it ergonomically friendly for DLG pilots to activate launch mode and features a program scroll wheel making it even easier to navigate the menus. The upgraded MCU is used in conjunction with a re-designed mainboard that further increases the computing capability and increases the data storage. The upgrades not only improve the running of LUA scripts but also optimizes overall performance like voice speech outputs. Let’s make a simple FrSky manual for this great radio

The 2019 version uses the latest ACCESS communication protocol, it boasts 24 channels with a faster baud rate and lower latency with a high-speed module digital interface. Along with the new spectrum analysis function added to the OpenTX firmware, it is now possible to check the airwaves for RF noise. This version will give you a further improved experience based on the classic Taranis remote control. Additionally, tons of extra upcoming features that ACCESS brings will make this an ideal transmitter for any skill level.

The SE 2019 version is installed with the upgraded switches and M9 hall sensor gimbals and features the addition of a PARA wireless trainer function which makes them compatible with the FrSky Free Link App and AirLink S. This is a simplified version of the FrSky manual for Taranis X9D Plus 2019 SE.

To ensure the safety of yourself and others, please observe the following precautions.

Have regular maintenance performed. Although your Taranis X9D Plus 2019/Taranis X9D Plus SE 2019 protects the model memories with non-volatile EEPROM memory (which does not require periodic replacement) and of a battery, it still should have regular check-ups for wear and tear. We recommend sending your system to your FrSky Service Center annually during your non-flying-season for a complete check-up and service.


      - Using a fully charged battery (DC 6.5~8.4V). A low battery will soon die, causing loss of control and a crash. When you begin your flying session, reset your transmitter’s built-in timer, and during the session pay attention to the duration of usage. Also, if your model used a separate receiver battery, make sure it is fully charged before each flying session.

      - Stop flying long before your batteries become over discharged. Do not rely on your radio’s low battery warning systems, intended only as a precaution, to tell you when to recharge. Always check your transmitter and receiver batteries prior to each flight.

Where to Fly

In the FrSky manual, We recommend that you fly at a recognized model airplane flying field. You can find model clubs and fields by asking your nearest hobby dealer.

     - Always pay particular attention to the flying field’s rules, as well as the presence and location of spectators, the wind direction, and any obstacles on the field. Be very careful flying in areas near power lines, tall buildings, or communication facilities as there may be radio interference in their vicinity.

At the flying field

     - To prevent possible damage to your radio gear, turn the power switches on and off in the proper sequence:

  1. Pull throttle stick to idle position, or otherwise disarm your motor/engine.
  2. Turn on the transmitter power and allow your transmitter to reach its home screen.
  3. Confirm the proper model memory has been selected.
  4. Turn on your receiver power.
  5. Test all controls. If a servo operates abnormally, don’t attempt to fly until you determine the cause of the  problem.
  6. Start your engine.
  7. Complete a full range check.
  8. After flying, bring the throttle stick to idle position, engage any kill switches or otherwise disarm your motor/ engine.

If you do not turn on your system on and off in this order, you may damage your servos or control surfaces, flood your engine, or in the case of electric-powered or gasoline-powered models, the engine may unexpectedly turn on and cause a severe injury.

       - Make sure your transmitter can’t tip it over. If it is knocked over, the throttle stick may be accidentally moved, causing the engine to speed up. Also, damage to your transmitter may occur.

       - In order to maintain complete control of your aircraft it is important that it remains visible at all times. Flying behind large objects such as buildings, grain bins, etc.  must be avoided. Doing so may interrupt the radio frequency link to the model, resulting in loss of control.

      - Do not grasp the transmitter's antenna during flight. Doing so may degrade the quality of the radio frequency      transmission and could result in loss of control.

    As with all radio frequency transmissions, the strongest area of signal transmission is from the sides of the     transmitter's antenna. As such, the antenna should not be pointed directly at the model. If your flying style     creates this situation, easily move the antenna to correct this situation.

     - Before taxiing, be sure to extend the transmitter antenna to its full length.

     A collapsed antenna will reduce your flying range and cause a loss of control. It is a good idea to avoid pointing      the transmitter antenna directly at the model, since the signal is weakest in that direction.

     - Don’t fly in the rain! Water or moisture may enter the transmitter through the antenna or stick openings and      cause erratic operation or loss of control. If you must fly in wet weather during a contest, be sure to cover your      transmitter with a plastic bag or waterproof barrier. Never fly if lightning is expected.
