Introducing Fpv.Red - A HD FPV video system that doesn't fear latency or range

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.

Hello James,

Unfortunately there is no pricing information quite yet. This is a very complicated product where the unit cost depends heavily on the number of units produced. If interested, please subscribe to the mailing list on Fpv.Red and answer to the optional in-page questions - as soon as we will have enough data we will provide you with solid pricing information.

I understand this is not an ideal situation, but we couldn't find any better way to proceed.

Thank you,

Looks good. Being a digital transmission, what standards does it comply with ie is it wifi based? I'm also wondering how you get compliance for HD bandwidth using the 900Mhz band.

Regards JB

Nice work also great formfactor, subscribed!

Edit: No multi select for answering?

Cool.  Good luck!

Hello JB, The system is not based on Wi-Fi and doesn't comply with the strict frequency hopping restrictions of Wi-Fi devices. The 900 MHz version is meant for US/Canada (ITU Region 2), Europe won't be able to use it (as least from my superficial understanding). This is the reason for the different operating frequencies. Tom, no, sorry, you are forced to select a single option :). Thank you Fnoop!

A 2.4 for me please ;-)

would it have provisions for telemetry as  a future upgrade?

Comment by cedivad on May 4, 2016 at 10:56am

Hello Ravi, Telemetry is one way only, unfortunately. At least in this version. Are you asking about exposing telemetry data from the receiver as a UART/Mavlink read only interface?

Looks very promising, and as always the decider for success will be the price.

And on a side note, in today's world of business I think you are looking for trouble using "red" in the product name.

yes the price is the key point...
