The Jumper T8SG and new deluxe T8SG V2 & V2+ represent the first mass market quasi universal radiocommand. Both of them are based on the excellent DeviationTX OS. In the other hand, FrSky Taranis owner communauty were a bit jalous of such cheap solution and can’t imagine to something else than OpenTX. Like the invisible clustering between iOS and Android, DeviationTX and OpenTX got their own fans who can’t imagine to cross the border.
Jumper will introduce soon the T12: https://www.banggood.com/Jumper-T12-OpenTX-16CH-Radio-Transmitter-with-JP4-in-1-Multi-protocol-RF-Module-for-Frsky-JR-Flysky-p-1331683.html
This radio is first non-FrSky based supporting OpenTX and a 4-in-1 Multimodule… for almose=t three times more cheaper than Taranix+Multimodule combo solution. The T12 is based on the same chassis of the T8SG V2… so with a small 1.7″ LCD screen, non-hall effect based gimbal (but improved versus the first T8SG ones). We can probably expect soon to see the introduction of the T12+ with hall gimbals and a OLED screen. Thanks to OpenTX and the JR bay, Crossfire long range TX module are supported (in theory, DeviationTX can support also this possibility but not yet implemented AFAIK). As the V2, the T12 can be powered via 4xAA batteries or via a 2S LiPo/LiHv element. Both the radio and the JP4-in-1 own a USB port to upgrade their OS/firmware respectively. Seems to be an excellent cheap radio alternative OpenTX based. Wait & See of course.
the T12 version does indeed support Crossfire and in CRSF mode with LUA script support and most importantly WITHOUT any hardware modification for end users.
The T12 platform is shipped with the JP4-in-1 Multi-protocol module.
such as the TBS Crossfire or any other compatible 2.4ghz JR Module, Analogue or Long Range UHF system, the T12 is ready to rock out with its socket out!
A standard LCD screen was used along with the T8SG V2 butter smooth V2 gimbals.
The T12 comes standard with a neck strap and AA battery tray. Can also be powered with any LiPO or LiFE battery of a compatible size ( Which means that users do not need to source their own uncommon sized Li-ion round cells or a round cell charger.)
The T12, when paired with the Jumper JP4-in-1 offers seamless intergration between the OpenTX software and module meaning protocals can be accessed and selected directly from the software GUI. Crossfire users can setup their equipment via the OpenTX LUA scripts.
