FrSKY ACCST technology is proven, approved by many model associations, tested and reviewed as the leading Chinese 2.4Ghz R/C Technology. If you think DSM2 or FASST is the best, think again!
New FrSKY ACCST (Advanced Continuous Channel Shifting Technology) gives you secure radio communicatios in 2.4Ghz band. ACCST 2.4GHz system shifts 80 channels around hundred times per second in the 2.4GHz band. This means that the system is completely resistant to interference in that band.
Features: Advanced Continuous Channel Shifting Technology (ACCST is our advanced tecnology it shifts channel hundred times per second and there is no signal conflicts and interruptions) robust frequency agility. Easy to bind and very fast link-up. Excellent reboot time. True Diversity with two antennas. All channels can be programmed with Failsafe, quickly and easily. Quick and extremely stable in performance. Precise and smooth servo response. Extended range (1.5km-2.5km).
Receiver Specification: Operating voltage: 3.5v~10v Power consumption: 50mA Resolution: 3072 Latency: 18ms (FS) 9ms (HS) Number of channels: 6 Range: 1.5km Dimensions: 42x22x11mm Weight: 7.1g
Included; 1 x 6-channel receiver D6FR
Compatible with FrSky 2 way telemetry modules: DFT, DJY, DHT, DHT-U
This receiver includes 2 antennas. They seem to be the same as FRANT15. They are connected by pushing the connectors together (similar to laptop wifi antennas). No need to solder them. Unless you have damaged the original antennas, no need for the 15 cms replacements.
If anyone has the Hobby King altimeter PRODUCT ID: 9333000001, please report if it work with the FrSky D6FR receiver using the A2 analog telemetry port. The HK altimeter is lighter than the FrSky ones, and also reports temperature, logs flight progress, and is a better deal if it actually works with the FrSky A2 analog ports. Please Chime in with your results!
I'll repeat my previous post...According to the manufacturer the only FrSky product that you can use in the D6FR A2 port is the FBVS-01, FrSky's external battery voltage sensor. No other FrSky sensors or sensor hubs will work.
Pap: You're really kinda feisty, aren't ya? First view this youtube video: http://www youtube com/watch?v=AFAKEMwD0qs. I hope it survives the HK auto edit process, but you need to insert periods where the spaces are in the URL. What you and FrSky says can't be done is already being done with the D6FR and a variometer called the Thermal Scout. Do a Google of the Thermal Scout, and what they call an "Instruction supplement" It can be found on Wingedshadow com.. Scroll down to the bottom of that document, and you will find the key: a product they call the FrSky filter cable. I wonder why they call it FrSky? My friend, it CAN be done with the D6FR. The question is how and with which products. Hense, my question about the HK altimeter/variometer. You don't know me very well, so I understand that you may think that I like to waste people's time for no good reason. Mistake. Please respond to my question above. If you haven't tried it, don't comment.
Thanks VirginiaJim! I learned something new today! :)
...apologies for reply with what is now obviously incorrect info :)
..oops...didn't mean to make it sound "feisty" either...was just indicating it was a repeat post and not new info...lol...and as shown above not even correct info either :p
Waterlogged: You are right that there are people on this site who are antagonistic. In my own experience those are the ones who challenge everyone who asks real questions, like the Forum goons who hassle everyone, thinking they are earning points with HK admin. If you re-read my question, you will notice that I do NOT know the answer for THIS variometer/altimeter. Otherwise I would not have asked it. Please don't jump down people's throats without paying attention to their real question. That's my last comment to you.
After buying two of these receivers I have found that the specifications listed in the manual are not correct for the analog inputs. The manual states a 1:1 ratio for the AD2 input but it actually has a 6:1 divider hardwired internally. This means existing accessories like the FrSky voltage monitor cable or Flytron display will give different readings with the D6FR compared to the original D8R 8 channel version.
It is possible to work around these differences but it means the D6FR can not be considered a direct replacement for the D8R for smaller aircraft. Apart from this issue, it still represents a great value receiver capable of sending telemetry data back to the ground.
One final point: note that unlike the D8R 8 channel version this D6FR has no serial data link for telemetry and is also not firmware upgradeable by the customer.
