In the last article, we have reviewed the Frsky lite and in this article, we are reviewing and doing a one on one comparison of the FrSky X Lite Pro - 2.4GHz Radio Controller. The Pro versions combine all the benefits and features of FrSky full sized radios like X9D, X9 Lite, along with the newly developed ACCESS (Advanced Communication Control, Elevated Spread Spectrum) protocol.

This is the FrSky X Lite Pro gaming style remote controller designed for RC drones and aircraft. With the growing acclaim of the new compact X-Lite form factor, FrSky is introducing this upgraded version by integrating its newly released ACCESS protocol and incorporating additional features. So let’s take a look at the radio

Design

The Pro and S versions combine all the benefits of the preceding design with the features of our full-sized radios, along with the newly developed ACCESS (Advanced Communication Control, Elevated Spread Spectrum) protocol. New for the PRO version is a high-quality, all-metal CNC hall sensor gimbal. Checking the airwaves for RF noise is now possible with the new power meter and spectrum analysis function added to the OpenTX firmware.

Both versions feature the addition of an improved wireless trainer function which makes them compatible with the FrSky Free Link App. The best thing about the Pro and S models is that pilots can now expect even lower latency and enhanced performance due to our new ACCESS transmission protocol. With the integrated 6-axis sensor unit, pilots can use the radio as a motion-sensing controller to control the inputs of a model during flight or use it to point a camera in the desired direction.   

Like all of our transmitters, all of the beloved features from previous Taranis are included such as full haptic feedback and voice alerts, as well as telemetry and 24 channels and an additional 2 momentary buttons are installed.

What is ACCESS Protocol?

We have learned what is access protocol and how it differs from the ACCST protocol in detail. Hence it is inappropriate to learn about this newly released protocol again. But in quick words, it is Advanced Communication Control Elevated Spread Spectrum, and below we are listing some important features of this protocol.

  • Supports 24 full-range channels
  • Increased baud rate and lower latency
  • Wireless binding, updates, and configuration
  • Automatic binding (Smart Match)
  • Channel remapping
  • Manageable telemetry (Trio ControlTM)
  • Allows radio to act as a Spectrum Analyzer
  • Allows radio to act as a Power Meter
  • Advanced Encryption Algorithm
