FrSky Taranis Special Edition Low RSSI (Crash)

Post by dushan » Tue Sep 18, 2018 2:55 pm

I bought a Taranis SE from a friend, crashed a plane due to sudden signal loss (no warnings). I've placed the antennas (X8R, tested with X6R as well) correctly at 90 degrees and even mounted them outside which is not needed for a foamy. And there are plenty of posts/videos online to say that most SEs are faulty. Now I'm thinking of buying an original taranis without the SMA/IPX antenna as some suggests this is where the problem is. But seems there are also faulty XJT modules. My question is if I buy an original taranis, will that guarantee my xjt module will be healthy and that I will be having the usual range? I read some got issues after couple of years of flying too. Some have got issues after the antenna mode which is reasonable. Should I look for any particular serial numbers such as A01, B01/ B02? Can we also hear from those who are using taranis txs for years about there experience? Please, appreciate any help. I've invested a lot on telemetry devices and receivers and this is going to be my last try or else getting back to my trusty spectrum.

I have my X9D for 4 years now without any problem. Just love it. Sometimes I wish it failed to give me an excuse to buy an X10S but so far no reason to do so. Stock X9D with OpenTx of course... .

I have one of the very first batch of X9Ds sold in North America by Aloft in July 2013. Still going strong after more than five years. I’ve upgraded the sticks but never touched the electronics.

I’ve mostly used it with ErSky9x, though at the moment it’s on OpenTX as I experiment with version 2.2.

Did you have logging turned on by chance? That might give some idea of what's going on.

My early Taranis has been flawless for almost 5 years.

Thanks so much for the reply. It seems some change frsky did for the internal xjt which started this issue. I'm thinking, even if I can replace the internal board, what can guarantee that the new board will be error free. Because these are all same boards right. Also what kind of recievers you use? Seems there are lot of problems with the new X series and most people are switching back to D series.
