Preliminary Product Specifications
- Frequency: Worldwide 2.4 GHz operation (2400-2484 MHz).
- RF certification: Designed to be certified under FCC/CE rules. Not certified as of yet.
- Video latency: system adds 25 ms when operating with no interference in non-failsafe mode.
- Range: tested at 7km @ 100mW and 17km @ 700mW, using dipoles. Range using directional antennas doubles every 6 dBi of antenna gain. Theoretical max range using a 24 dBi grid antenna is over 100km.
- Dimensions: High density single board, smaller than a credit card.
- Input voltage: 2S to 4S (up to 17 V).
- Power consumption: 4-5 Watt for the transmitter board itself at low power, < 1W for other external video inputs.
- Transmission power: Selectable, up to 28.5 dBm (700 mW).
- Video inputs: Up to two input boards connected, can be anything from the fpv.blue custom camera to HDMI. Manually selectable via RC channel or receiver switch.
- Video input cable: Extremely flexible and arbitrarily long coaxial cable, sending power and data over a single wire.
- HDMI input board: small, with adapters for a full sized HDMI connector or to fit directly into the HDMI Micro (GoPro) or HDMI Mini (DSLR Camera) slots, with no additional cable in between.
- HDR camera input board: custom video input option for the lowest latency and great video quality. Using a 1/4" HDR sensor from Aptina and dedicated Image Signal Processor.
- Audio: High quality digital microphone on board.
- Dimensions: Designed to fit on the back of a FrSky Taranis radio with space to spare for a 900 MHz module (R9R/Crossfire). Can also be put on a tripod via the mount screw.
- Video output: HDMI with embedded audio. Compatible with any standard HDMI display device.
- Receiver antennas: Two antennas, full diversity, with Maximal Ratio Combining.
- OSD: Integrating data from the Mavlink (Ardupilot, INAV) or Vector telemetry. Can be disabled if required.
- Mavlink raw data connection: Either via a serial port or USB (undecided as of now).
- Mavlink commands uplink: Yes, with limited data rate. Can drop video frames (imperceptible if no other interference is present) when heavy commands are sent to the air unit.
- RC input: PPM, can be connected to the radio to send RC to the air unit.
