In today's article we are going to talk about the options of modules and receivers that the Frsky taranis x9d plus company can incorporate. We will talk about the cheapest options and somewhat more expensive lagoons, so that all people regardless of their economic situation can try the experience of making long-range flights, for example with racing drones or with fpv wings.

We start by talking about the r9m module. This module has a jr-type format and is compatible with various radio stations on the market such as the taranis qx7 or the taranis x9d or the radiomaster tx16s and or the flysky th9x. It is very economical, it only has 66 dollars on the horus rc website. It is capable of transmitting at 10mw 100mw and 500mw


It has several versions, it has a version for the accst protocol and for the Access protocol. It has a wide variety of receivers with a very economical price, both the sbus protocol and the pwm protocol. This r9m module supports single antenna receivers such as the small receiver r9 mini and also supports dual antenna receivers called diversity receivers such as the r9 slim + receiver.


We continue talking about the antennas that use this type of modules have different types of antennas for example: the super eight antenna or the type t antenna or the moxom antenna or the linear antenna similar to the antenna of the taranis x9d plus SE station.

We are going to talk about the crossfire tbs system, it is a system to perform long-range flights in a reliable way. It is a much more expensive system but with a very strong emission-reception ratio. It has 2 versions that are available for the taranis x9d plus, the tbs crossfire module that transmits up to a power of 2 watts and the tbs crossfire micro that transmits up to 250mw. This last option is the cheapest and is around $ 100. It is the most used potion among racing drone pilots.


We talked about the tbs crossfire system receivers. For those of us who fly racing drones as is my case. They have the tbs crossfire nano receiver model with an approximate cost of about 40 dollars. For people who practice long-range flights, it has the reduced-size crossfire nano diversity receiver that, as its name suggests, has 2 independent antennas for better reception and its cost is around $ 60.

To conclude with this section of the tbs crossfire we talk about the antennas of the transmitter modules. There are 2 types the diamond type antenna, then there is the immortal type antenna t.


The receivers usually bring the antennas called immortal t from the factory, but rather antennas made up of two wires very similar to the antennas of the r9 receivers.

To conclude with this article we are going to talk about the last system that has recently come to the market is the ghost of the rc immersion company, the same company that manufactures fatshark type fpv glasses and 5.8ghz tump fpv vtx.

We start talking about the ghost rc injection module, this module transmits at a frequency of 2.4ghz thanks to the two linear antennas that are incorporated in the upper part of the module. They use very small receivers that use the sbus communication protocol.


Personal opinion:

I started in the world of long-range flights with the r9 accst system and the rx r9 slimy with my long-range drone I was 2km away without problem at an emission power of 500mw and with an rssi of around 86% signal, It is the cheapest version to get started. Recently I am using the micro crossfire tbs module with the nano rx tbs receiver and the rssi never drops below 97% making a flight of about 1.5km. For racing it is my favorite option and also because they have a very low latency of only about 4ms. I see that the 2 options work in the correct way and that depending on the money that we can invest in our system, we will choose one option or another.
