The RADIOMASTER TX16S is a high end, low cost, premium multi-protocol radio that has great features and will allow you to fly a countless number of RC products. Being multi-protocol means you are not locked into one system such as FrSky, Spektrum, or FLYSKY, etc. You can link the TX16S to these popular protocols plus the not so popular ones that operate on 2.4GHz. A full list of agreed protocols is available from the link shown in the attached User Manual under the “Files” tab.
The TX16S transmitter runs OpenTX open source firmware which is fully supported by the OpenTX development team. It is a fully functioning 16 channel radio with a 4.3″ color display screen, built-in USB-C charging, has voice functions, telemetry (protocol and receiver dependent), is crossfire compatible, has an external SD card slot, and much much more.
This version of the TX16S has high-quality Non-Contact 3D vector Hall effect sensor gimbals fitted with CNC aluminum facias, these gimbals provide the ultimate feel and precise control demanded by experts and beginners alike. The easy to use and intuitive menus are accessed via a strong metal roller wheel (no plastic here!) and 6 push buttons on the front, all very simple to use.
There is a module slot in the back of the transmitter which will accept the popular JR/FrSky type of module which means you can be up and running almost instantly with your favorite protocol. The transmitter is also Mode selectable so can be either Mode 1 or Mode 2, this does however require the back being removed to move some mechanical components from one stick unit to the other. A battery tray is supplied which will accept either 2 x 3.7V 18650 Lithium-Ion batteries or 2 x 3.7V LiPo batteries. The large battery compartment (97x52x25mm) also has room for a 2S LiPo pack of your choice. A nice feature of this radio is that the batteries can stay in the compartment and be charged via the USB-C charging port. As an optional extra RADIOMASTER have a 7.4V 5000mah Li-Ion battery which is a direct fit into the radio compartment without the need to use the battery box (see related items). Other ports include a DSC for buddy box system, a USB for hooking up to a simulator, and 2 UART ports to expand the capabilities of the radio.
Overall this is an easy to use, multi-protocol transmitter that removes the need for you to have lots of different types of transmitters at your disposal. This one unit will operate just about all the different protocols on the market today.
