I've got all the parts I need to wrap up my F450 build, except for my first radio. I'm planning to fly this thing in all modes, including FPV. I'm currently using an APM 2.6 until my Pixhawk ships.
I am very interested in the new open source FrSky Taranis, but they seem to be unable to ship them out. I've waited for weeks now (some people have waited months), and I've given up for now. I'm very much interested in open source hardware, so it's not so much the cost of the radio that I am interested in, though the price is attractive for what it can do.
That said, I guess this means I'm looking for another radio, so I can get this baby flying. I'm aware of the Turnigy 9xR fitted with the FrSky module, but I'm wondering what else you might recommend around the $300 range. Honestly, with devices like the Taranis hitting the market at the price point, I have zero interest in paying $400+ for a radio.
Thanks in advance for the advice!
