We’re pleased to announce our new 3DR Radio. Featuring interchangeable air and ground modules (both with native USB connectors), Android tablet compatibility, and a protective case, our new radio delivers unparalleled ease of use for viewing in-flight data, changing missions on the fly, and tuning.

Quite a bit of work went into the new radio design. Our first version was simply a carrier board for the radio module, providing a power supply, an antenna connector and a way to connect to the autopilot or the computer. Our new radio provides an EMI shield over the radio module, EMI filtering chips on all power and signal lines, USB and autopilot connectivity options on the same board, and an enclosure for protection and easy mounting.

Each Telemetry Kit comes with two modules, two antennas, and cables to connect to Pixhawk, APM, PX4, laptop, and Android tablet/phones.

Apparently, there is a typo in the 433Mhz version pricing. That, or someone is trying to embargo the European market.

@Sue,

Sounds like a well thought out design. The filtering on the power input and the EMI shield sounds great in relation to power and RF issues that some members have encountered.

Does the 433 Mhz version have a CE mark so we can actually buy them in europe?

Good luck on the ipad, Apple doesn't approve generic serial/usb connections. :-(

Any power/distance change?

Any chance of an FCC or IC approval for North America?

@Grips,

I believe that the RF modules that 3DR uses in the telemetry radio are FCC certified.
