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!

Its an interesting product, how is the OSD information being passed from MAVLink telemetry stream ?

Comment by cedivad on November 1, 2017 at 6:02am

Via a mavlink input on the transmitter.

Cedivad, thanks for the info, please put them on the webpage too, with some pictures of the actual devices and maybe the user manual or the detailed menu (they look very nice, you should show them on your site, not in a third party review)

I admit it's tempting, but I have been testing telemetry/av/rc links for some time now and none performed really good... thinking to wait for the new release.

Where are you located? Any chance you have some video/testing with the transmitter mounted on a big rotorcraft or any other carbon/composite frame machine?

And another question: why this take so much time to develop? I have seen a few trying to perfect this digital video links and in the end they all failed or underperformed. I remember arguing with my friends at the field that in a few years we will have digital video links much better than analog ones we were using.... it was 2008! almost 10 year and we are still here with really nothing usable to pilot a decently fast machine at a decent distance...

Why you are not accepting payment via Paypal ? it gives safety to the customers.

Comment by cedivad on November 1, 2017 at 3:00pm

Stripe is just as safe. Paypal is heaven for scammers and a nightmare for merchants.

Giovanni, you can find pictures of the actual device on our website and plenty of information from reviews online, as I said before I agree we should have more technical information online but never had the time to put it up. Dublin, Ireland. Getting HD FPV right can take a lot of time.

That might be your perception about Paypal, I have my Paypal account since year 2004 and had no issue with Paypal however, I have just came to know from you about Stripe, which might be good as well.

Furtheremore, I tried it a moment back and while activating my account, I came to know that India was not in the list, Stripe can't be at par with Paypal.

When is an ISM band model expected to be available? (imho, MASSIVE commercial mistake not doing that first btw).
