fpv.blue's HD FPV first batch is now available at €499, a price decreasing by €3 per hour or €72 per day

We are running an auction on our first batch's hardware and I thought it was something diydrones would be interested in. Our first batch is 1240-1300 MHz, with included HDMI/camera inputs.

Bonafidepirate flew it to around 14 kilometres using a 8 dBi patch antenna:

We are loosing money already on this batch and will probably need to accept bank wire transfers only for the second batch, while we are accepting credit cards via Stripe for this first one.

Feel free to ask me anything in the comments!

Do you ship the goods from EU or US ?

Comment by cedivad on October 31, 2017 at 1:07am

EU, that's why we are worrying about VAT.

Looks good! Transmitter dimensions? Weight?  Low-light camera performance / IR filter?  Embedded telemetry?

Please add a bit more technical information to you text.

Comment by cedivad on October 31, 2017 at 12:34pm

Transmitter dimensions: 63x38 mm; weight with antennas and camera ~80 grams, low light performance is good (but not amazing, I guess it's subjective, the sensor is an AR0132 if you want to look it up) and you can remove the IR filter replacing the lens. We will add a mavlink output (tx only) at the receiver. 

I'm sorry for not adding a lot of technical information in the first post, I agree it's lacking.

 I agree it's lacking.

Not everyone understands the spoken language well, it is more convenient for many to read. :)

Minute ago I receive e-mail form fpv.blue... To my private e-mail address. And I'm sure, I not subscribe to news.

Question is - who and why send this message? Is a fpv.blue use aggressive practices for customer search?

As a moderator I waiting for explanation... 

Otherwise, measures will be taken.

I not receive any confirmation or proposal for subscribe. Tell me, how you web-site are working? 

Visit to you site is equal to subscribe?

If you didn't subscribe someone did it for you. As I said before use our email address to ask for details about date, time and IP address of who subscribed you, or ask mailchimp and they will tell you that our mailing list has a surprisingly low number of unsubscribes.

You seem to be claiming we are spamming the whole internet, or somehow got access to your email address using shady methods, that is just silly.
