fpv.blue – 2.4 GHz HD Downlink updates

I've last posted on this website a couple of years back and I'm sad to see activity decreased lately (I used to be an avid reader as well).

For people that haven't followed or weren't interested I've now spent some time developing a 2.4 GHz version of the fpv.blue video transmission system, I've tested it to 17km @ 700mW and 7km @ 100mW and I'm now turning the prototypes into the smallest device possible for the transmitter and a handy injection-moulded receiver so that you can fix it at the back of your radio (alongside an optional 900 MHz unit) or mount it on a tripod.

The system will have Mavlink and RC control over the 2.4 GHz link, a very low latency (25ms added), 720p@60fps, 1080p@30fps, two switchable camera/HDMI inputs and a flexible/long video input cable, so that the devices can be placed anywhere on the plane/drone/gimbal.

The full preelimary specifications are here: https://fpv.blue/

And you can see two test videos here:



I've also opened preorders for the product. I don't expect people to be placing an order for a product there is no picture of, but you can do it.

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!

Hello everyone,

I would like to briefly introduce a product that has been in development for more than a year now and is planned to enter production this summer. It's a low latency, long range, glass-to-glass video transmission system.

Remarkable features are a long range operating distance (7 kilometres tested at 100mW using an economic 8 dB patch antenna at the receiver), a glass-to-glass video latency of 80 milliseconds with plans of bringing it below 50 milliseconds, three supported video frequencies (900 MHz, 2.4 and 5.8GHz) and a very small transmitter size of 63x38 millimetres.

Please visit Fpv.Red for more details, send us an email or ask in the comments for any question.
