A limited number (100) of L9R units were recently released. Unfortunately we were not well geared up to test these units objectively until now. As the TX mod worked so well, we need to get another stock TX over to murzwern to test the L9R range properly. That day finally arrived this week and murzwern got on the job!
Over recent months murzwern has carried out numerous tests of the Taranis with a 5dbi antenna mod. In this test, we go back to begin with a stock Taranis and the new long range L9R receiver from Frsky. That’s right, everything out of the box.
Unfortunately, a new VTX antenna failed at 5km. The good news is that the test achieved 5km and murzwern still had 60% RSSI. Accordingly, best guess is that the new L9R will achieve +6km which is inline with Frksy’s claim that the receiver doubles the range!
New stock of the L9R are expected in the AU store in around 1 week.
