My company, Paralinx, is proud to debut and demonstrate the Tomahawk - a brand new Realtime HD Downlink ideal for use in FPV or remote camera operation.
Paralinx has been in development for about five years, and entered the wireless HD transmitter market on June 1st 2012 at Cinegear in Los Angeles.
We are now very excited to introduce the TOMAHAWK which is specifically engineered to be a good choice for use on small Fixed Wing and Multi-Rotor Aerial Vehicles. Joining us is one of the world's premiere Aerial Imaging Teams - DRONE DUDES!
The company was founded by myself and Greg Smokler - two members of the Cinematographer's Guild, and we started Paralinx because there was no Wireless HD option on the market that met our standards for quality and affordability. As camera people we are constantly being asked to provide a wireless HD monitor feed for clients, directors, our assistants, and other camera operators, and we wanted to make something easy to use and affordable enough to keep in your kit and make your money back quickly.
Through our adventures in imaging we quickly made friends with a variety of people using remote and autonomous vehicles for capturing exciting new imagery. I've been fascinated by robotics since I was just a kid, and to see where things are headed with UAVs at a DIY level has stoked my interest and desire to learn even more.
Naturally this led me to the DIY Drones site in my quest for knowledge and every day I'm blown away by the things I learn here.
I hope to meet a lot of you and share our excitement for the possibilities of Remote Imaging in conjunction with our premiere of the Tomahawk Wireless HD Transmitter.
Thanks everyone! and please don't forget to RSVP to the free event at firstname.lastname@example.org

Tomahawk Demo Day - 11.23.13 from PARALINX on Vimeo.
Hello Gentlemen - the product goes live today and will be here:
Goes live today at 1pm PST
how much does it cost and when is it available?
Hi Mr. Knott and Mr. Taylor - currently the videos produced during the event are being edited - hope to be able to post something up before this weekend.
Do you have a product page? I'm very interested.
Short phone video clip of demo - Impressive HD video downlink. I couldn't tell and did not focus on latency/lag, but it appears to be almost not an issue.
Distance was approximately from here to here. Paralinx guy said it works on 5.8GHz frequency with proprietary hardware that is constantly monitoring spectrum and automatically picking best bands. Top-of-the-line gear a bit pricey at just under $10k. Hope in a few years volume picks up and prices come down for us mere enthusiasts.
Fun and informative event and thanks to Paralinx for inviting us regular hobby enthusiasts and demoing some very cool hardware! - Tacos and burritos were great too!
A Little bird told me the event is at the Los Angeles State Historic Park near chinatown in case anyone forgot to RSVP and wants to Attend.
