The new Horus X10 Express
With the demand for further extending the legacy of the Horus Series Transmitters, the Horus X10/S Express version was born. With many new updates like applying the ACCESS protocol and hardware tweaks.
Horus X10/S Express use the ACCESS communication protocol, it boasts 24 channels with a faster baud rate and lower latency equipped with a high-speed module digital interface. Along with the new spectrum analysis function and added FrOS/OpenTX firmware, it is now possible to check the airwaves for RF noise.
Both X10 and X10S Express support balancing charge for 2S Li-ion battery via a collateral USB cable. The accessible battery compartment design is another change worth mentioning, with two 18650 Li-ion batteries you can expect to be able to fly all day. The Express carries forward all of their predecessor’ features like the industrial LCD color screen, and the highly-accuracy M10/MC12P hall sensor gimbals which offer the most precise control. Additionally, it features a remarkable PARA wireless trainer function which also makes them compatible with the FrSky Free Link App and AirLink S. All that makes the Express version an ideal transmitter for, gliders, helis, multirotor and every type of fixed-wing imaginable.
Just got to grip with the Horus x10 Express and all I can say is excellent. So undersold, if you want a buy and fly system then the built in fros system is excellent.
After adding the latest version of OpenTx 2.3.7 & ISRM V2.1.0 brings this radio easily into the £1k category. As long as the developers keep doing their excellent work, they even answered (smartly) a silly question I had.
The only difference I notice with the Access is the lack of receiver availability, guess I have to be patient. The Rx4r's and 6's I have purchased work perfectly. I thought Access may be the end of Frsky but after updating the firmware from frsky on my old receivers and set the Model radio from access to D16 worked pefectly. Such a relief to be able to use my old receivers. Having read all the info on the access it does profide double the range so fingers crossed.
I would also like to give praise where its due, for UK customer service and advice from T9Hobbies and HobbyRC regarding Frsky.
Keep up the good work all, its appreciated.
Hi .I have just brought x10 express. But I am having trouble up dating the D16 mode,loaded on sd card but it will not let me update tx. Have already up dated rx's because I have had uncommanded servo movements with my old x10. Help what am I doing wrong
Can I suggest you contact Barry Cole on this forum.. He is a bit of a guru on these matters.
If Cliff has ot sorted this with you. E-Mail me modelgliding[at]aol.com
I have also finally got through a steep learning curve, having moved from an old (2006) Multiplex Profi4000 tx to the Frsky HorusX10S express. I have also purchased two Archer ACCESS GR8 receivers and one ACCESS SR8PRO receiver from t9Hobbysport. I’m running opentx 2.3.10 on the tx and 2.1 on the rx. No problems with the setup, I’m looking forward to flying once the COVID lockdown is over.
