The iRangeX iRX-IR8M is a 2.4GHz, 8 channel Multi-Protocol Transmitter, which has just been announced.
Closely resembling the TBS Tango, this transmitter immediately caught my eye. Unlike the Tango, the iRX-IR8M doesn’t have an integrated 5.8 GHz receiver and FPV display. Instead, the screen is used for standard transmitter display functions, but is reportedly customisable. Where the Tango requires a separate JR type module, the iRX-IR8M has multiple protocol compatibility built in.
You find the iRangeX iRX-IR8M now at Banggood.
The iRX-IR8M has a number of exciting features. It is natively compatible with a range of protocols, including FrSky, Futaba, DSM/DSMX, Walkera, Hubsan, Syma, Flysky and Chinese protocols used in most toy-grade quadcopters. The gamepad style should mean that the transmitter is easy to use even for those with smaller hands because the whole stick movement can be achieved. Gimbals are expected to be smooth, thanks to quad ball bearings and have adjustable stick length and tension. The buttons and switches themselves are fully customisable, so you can use them for any function. This level of functionality is something normally reserved for much more expensive options, so is a steal at this low price point.
With it’s compatibility with such a large range of receivers, this transmitter is a great choice for anyone wanting to be able to fly more than just a single racing drone. It also makes a great upgrade to the cheap transmitters that come with toy grade drones, giving you much greater control.
