Would love to get one of these eventually, as replacement for the Taranis X9D I use now.
The X9D is too bulky for me to be able to use my thumbs to control the gimbalsticks properly.
I would put those rubber Xbox controller sticks on the X-lite so it feels just like a gamepad.
Bit low on cash atm, and it will probably be sold out for the coming months, but 112€ is not too bad.

This will be the first thing I'll buy once I've got the money for it. 

Right now with the bulky Taranis X9D I can only control with the pinching method. The X9D is too big for just thumbs, the movement of the gimbals is greater then my thumbs can handle with precision. Will be much easier to control the drone with this Xlite gamepad transmitter. I already learned the difference between gamepad and Taranis using the LiftOff drone simulator on the PC.

Just part way through first video on Post 4...
...This is a rather funky bit of kit, I like it a lot. It would fit in my rucksack much better than my full size one too so I can now take it on the back of my motorbike easily.
Love the smaller gimbals, hall effect too. Liking the batteries in the arms, easy to mod for 18650s if needed too. Also the free hard case, what's not too like...
Cool, watchin rest...
cool

The Antenna test video was interesting, he did say he didn't really know what he was doing...

IMO the external will be much better, what he should have done was to have to test antenna parallel to the transmitter not rotated 90 degree, doh. In his tests he always held it flat to the bench whilst the FRSky one was pointing up...

Good vid though, seems internal one might be alright, but my first thoughts when I saw it was, immediately stick an external antenna on it.

I would also use an external antenna on the Xlite, even if it's not a big improvement, every little bit helps. Smile
Probably wouldn't use the big 5db antenna, because this can cause damage to the transmitter, like Joshua Bardwell found out.
He made a video about how replacing the stock antenna with a 5db one fried his Taranis X9D.  Wink

Can't wait to try this XLite out, in a few months, once I've got the money to afford them. Cool

lol!  not much difference Smile

Maybe the X-lite is filtering the antenna's power down to save levels, so the radio doesn't fry when some idiot puts on a too big antenna.  Smile

Looks like adding an external antenna is not even needed.

I was surprised by his test results,very surprised.
It seems to work really good.

Nice they made a special receiver upgrade port on this thing.

Rest of the upgrading is pretty much similar to the X9D.

Amazing how simply the shape of the antenna makes such a big difference. Surprised
Would be nice if they added this antenna permanently with a bendable connector so you can fold it to the back of the radio.

Ace, NJ Tech knows his pegs alrighty.
Seems like the other overly critical reviewers regarding pinching are simply wrong.
Also seems to me after watching that, that it's actually better for pinching as you can reach further into the centre because it's smaller.
Plus you don't need some damn neck strap that there because your receiver is large, heavy, and it's needed to pinch control. This one is light, small, no neck strap needed and much better all round for it, certainly for quads anyways.


RE: Canner, that antenna, good idea about the folding back, that would be perfect. if I get one, I think a 3D printed design might be in order (after I get my FPV setup of course)

Looking like a damn good little set this.

cool
