ZOON - 2.4Ghz LoRa Telemetry Module by DRONEE

ZOON is 2.4Ghz LoRa  based long range telemetry module. ZOONv3 can send data up to 21km at 0.5kbps and 6km at 125kbps.
ZOON adds mavlink rssi packets to mavlink enabled data beside LED signal indicators.
Furthermore, "Mavlink NEVER LOST" also dynamically changes data speed and sends only necessary packets such as position,orientation,rtcm(rtk gps),etc. when the drone/robot is far away.

As ZOON uses LoRa chirp spread spectrumIt has strong immunity to reflection from obstacles and other wireless signals around.

Connection to ZOON can be with microUSB, JST - SM04B-GHS-TB, or ST - SM06B-GHS-TB.
It is also full-duplex. (Note also that it has half-duplex physical connection as similar to WiFi).

When will this be available? 

And at what price?

Comment by Maksim P on May 2, 2019 at 2:18am

 Hey @NandoteRiele265

it starts from 49€ more in the link dronee.aero/zoon

...and at which power consumption? 

Comment by Damian on May 2, 2019 at 11:23am

You are not allowed to use these speeds in EU or US. Depending on the frequency your duty cycle can be only 10% or even just 1%. The Lora is not supposed to be used for any real-time telemetry:

Pascal Fust max power for ZOONv3 is 20dB(100mWatt)

Damian the restriction is only for subGHz LoRa bands but not for 2.4Ghz one

Cheers Maksim! Did not know that

Comment by Greg Dronsky on May 3, 2019 at 11:37pm

100mWatt @ 2.4 and 21km range? The antennas look normal, how is this possible? Does it switch to 433 when rssi is low?

Comment by Maksim P on May 4, 2019 at 3:15am

Greg Dronsky  advantage of LoRa chirp spread spectrum is it has very low receive sensitivity down to -132dB, but when the data rate is too low( down to 0.5Kbps).

It is fair enough to send only position,orientation,rtcm(RTK) at 1Hz. Best of both world, MAVLINK NEVER LOST does this automatically by switching to low rate and filtering and sending only critical packets.

@Maksim_P thank you for your answer. I was not familiar with this interesting technology! :)

Comment by Nando te Riele on May 6, 2019 at 12:35am

Hi Maksim, i Don't think it starts at 49€, it starts at 98€ doesn't it? You need 2 of these and the prices are for a single unit.
