Optimizing our supply chain allowed us to make our Sky Drone FPV 2 system available at a dramatically reduced price, starting from USD 299.- for the Europe/Asia version and 329.- for the US/Verizon version. The previous price was 699.-.
Sky Drone FPV 2 is a HD camera system for drones that transmits over the LTE network providing an unlimited range and low latency video+data link.
Digital High Definition Video
The Sky Drone FPV 2 system uses a high resolution camera with a wide dynamic range. It provides you with an amazing live video feed of up to 1080p at 30fps.
Telemetry and Command & Control Link
Besides the video link, Sky Drone FPV 2 provides a bidirectional data link between your drone and your Ground Control Station. This can be used to visualized telemetry data and/or control the drone. We support the MAVLink protocol as well as any generic protocol that interfaces via RS232/UART.
By using existing cellular networks, the Sky Drone FPV system provides you with virtually unlimited range. The only requirement is cell tower coverage. The system is optimized for the 4G/LTE network to provide best video quality and lowest latency. It does however fall back to 3G or even 2.5G networks by automatically adjusting video parameters without interrupting the stream.
By using our own highly optimized video processing pipeline, the system is designed for lowest latency video from scratch. The typical end-to-end latency is less than 150ms.
The Groundstation to receive Video from the Sky Drone FPV 2 unit runs on Windows and Linux with version for MacOS, Android and iOS in the pipeline to be released in Q2 2017.
The Sky Drone FPV 2 system is using high quality lenses that are interchangeable. Instead of locking you to a specific lens, you have the freedom to change the lens for specific use cases (wide angle lens for best overview or narrow FOV lenses for artistic flights with less distortion).
The video stream and meta data are fully end-to-end encrypted making it impossible for third parties to eavesdrop the transmission or interfere with it. Rather than reinventing the wheel, we rely on open and proven standards including Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) and Secure Real-Time Protocol (SRTP) using AES128.
