Jumper T8SG 2.0 Plus remote controller

Following the success of the T8SG transmitter, Jumper announced an upgraded version called T8SG Plus. In addition to the open-source software and adjustable transmission power, the Jumper VT8SG V2.0 Plus comes with nice gold finish design.

Similar to other professional remote controllers, the upgraded “Plus” edition comes with 6 shoulder switches, instead of only 4 like the first model had.

Sponosored AD

By default, the transmitter comes with AA battery cage, but removing it you can power the RC with LiPo batteries as well (2s is suggested). According to the rumored specs, the RC accepts wide range of input voltage (from 4.5 to 18V).
