Built in frsky rx is compatible with taranis, taranis plus, x9e etc. This built in receiver integrate a power amplifier ic (pa) rfx2401c, so you could get up to long range. This is the biggest improvement than other board with no pa included. Firmware version: betaflight betaflightf3. Please note: send without a usb charger. The same hole pattern with tiny whoop flight controller. More punch on throttle with 7x20mm motors and 3-blade 40mm propellers. The struts between the motor mounts and ducts are fragile and break easily. So these upgraded frames stiffen the struts considerably. The struts have a flat cross section which creates more bonding area with the duct.
