Frsky announced their next radio – the Horus X11. It’s going to be the new platform for their newly developed dual frequency band Tandem system.
Specs are unknown at the moment. So far it appears to be a “simplified” version of the Horus X12. This could be a response to the Jumper T16 – a low cost radio that is recently released by Jumper, that has a appearance that is heavily inspired by Futaba, and an internal design that is said to be inspired by Frsky.
If my speculation turned out to be correct, the Horus X11 would be priced similar to the Taranis X9D-Plus, or even slightly cheaper.
According to Frsky, Tandem is their latest radio redundancy technology. They will release Tandem compatible receivers that will allow dual frequency redundancy, i.e. 2.4GHz and 900MHz.
This technology probably won’t work on existing products and will require new RF modules. The Horus X11 will probably come with a built-in RF module that support this. And therefore I wouldn’t be surprised if the Horus X11 didn’t have a JR module bay in the back.
I will come back and update as soon as I hear more about this product.
