" 500 meter range,  $300 less and not compatible with the other one, only good for multi's. Who cares if film industry uses it. We dont watch movies in real time."

"Remember that the quoted "1m" latency in Connex systems are for transmission only. To get the real "glass-to-glass" latency you have to add camera (typically ~50ms) and monitor latency (0-16ms at 60hz). Still very, very good. But…"

"The Connex Mini is the forth generation of HD video links that I used from Amimon.  Many in the film industry have probably used or heard of the Paralinx Tomahawk which used Amimon's chips and also claims "1ms zero…"

"its pretty good. although 1ms is probably bullshit, its longer than the time the signal physically takes to propagate at max distance. now add the encoder, decoder, hdmi, sensor, etc. latency.. yeah. "

JB commented on Hai Tran's blog post Unboxing the Connex Mini
"Hi Hai! Looks good. Somewhat surprisingly the spec sheet says a very low 1msec delay, which is probably as good as it will get for transmission latency. The camera and monitor setup will likely be the biggest challenge to reduce latency with this…"

"Maybe earthpatrol you possess some super piloting skills that allows you recover from a hardware/software failure. But from my experience, when that happens your piloting skills are as useful as a surveyor with zero piloting skills."

Cloud Raven GCS for 3DR Solo and Pixhawk

Posted on December 12, 2015 at 10:00am 31 Comments

I've had the pleasure of beta testing a new Android based Mapping/VR/Modelling GCS for 3DR Solo.  In addition to Solo support it also supports both Pixhawk based fixed wing and multicopters.  DJI Phanton3/Inspire 1 compatibility is likely to follow.

It is refreshing to see a GCS for Pixhawk that is as easy to use as my Sensefly eBee, requiring…
