Team Blacksheep Unify Pro 5G8 HV (SMA)


$73.40

New and 6S capable version, with 5V output for your FPV camera.
Fully SmartAudio compatible - additional features include TBS CleanSwitch and TBS PitMode.Antenna Connector: SMA Female Socket

The most popular, most powerful video transmitter on the market just got a "bigger" brother. It can be connected directly to up to 6S of battery-juice and do 5V output for your camera. It will filter the power and make sure you get clean video, even without being connected to a TBS CORE or TBS PowerCube. With a brand new active output power monitor, we ensure that you'll always meet the race requirements, while giving you the best possible picture.

With only 7g and a 31x22x6mm form factor, your quad will barely notice it's there. The 25mW - 800mW adjustable output power allows you to race with friends and penetrate serious concrete with just a few pushes of a button. The 40CH coverage gives you the freedom to fly at any race without having to resort to video transmitter swapping practices (*).

PITMODE - MADE TO RACE
Zero interference even while powered up, it's now a possibility! If you've ever repaired a quad during a race, you'll know the frustrations of not being able to power on and test your system. With PitMode, we will reduce the output power to a bare minimum (way below single digit mW's), and move to frequencies unused by race organizers, to allow you to power up your quad and still see the image! You've got a few meters of range to put your quad through its paces before placing it on that starting grid, and in combination with CleanSwitch you can power on as soon as your channel is available without interrupting any of the active channels.

SMARTAUDIO - FULL CONTROL
SmartAudio technology provides UART and I2C control for your entire video transmitter. Parameters such as output power, bands, channels and frequency can be freely controlled. This enables remote channel control directly from a smart device (TBS Crossfire, external bluetooth or wifi module required), from your radio (TBS Crossfire with TBS Tango or OpenTX compatible remote required), or from the OSD (e.g. TBS CORE PRO). With all these options available, you ought to find something that fits your bill. Together with CleanSwitch, the sky is the limit ... jump between channels without interfering fellow pilots in air, create backup-/emergency-frequencies, global VTx power adjustments by race organizers or other clever systems aimed at streamlining and improving race management are now a possibility!

CLEANSWITCH - NEIGHBOR FRIENDLY
CleanSwitch is a technology developed at TBS that will ensure that your video transmitter is interference-free while powering on, or while changing channels. All current video transmitters swipe across the entire band while being powered on, often resulting in flickering and heavy interference to anyone in the air, regardless of video channel chosen. TBS CleanSwitch will allow you to power on and change channels while your buddies are in the air, without any external interference. CleanSwitch is race friendly, and pilot friendly ... that's how we like it at TBS :)

SAY NO! TO DIPSWITCHES
Even though learning binary was a fun mind-game, in practice a single-push-button or OSD-controlled video transmitter is just much easier to operate. Gone are the days of video transmitter cards, stepping on people's channels by mistake, or a mismatch between your goggle and video transmitter frequencies.

ImmersionRC LapRF Personal Race Timing System - LAPRF1


$139.95

The ImmersionRC LapRF is a personal race timing system for FPV quads using 5.8GHz video feeds.

The passing of a quad through the start/finish gate is precisely measured using the energy emitted by the 5.8GHz transmitter on the quad.

Custom fully-programmable timing receivers, coupled with ImmersionRC's timing antennas ensure that the performance of this system is on a different level than competing products.
Video power levels from 10mW through 600mW supported.

Super-precise with one pilot, but also supporting multiple pilots for smaller events without purchasing multiple units (up to 8 with lower gate speeds as found in the micro-quad world) - up to 4 units with high speed

Bluetooth connection to Android and iOS devices, with free applications downloadable from their respective app. stores.

Fully integrated with the industry standard LiveTime event management software.
Integrated 2600mAh Li-ion battery, with integrated USB charger gives 8 hour race time.

Manual for ImmersionRC LapRF personal available here

Easy To Use

It doesn’t get much easier. Power on the LapRF, drop it in the start/finish gate, select its ID in the free Android/iOS app, select the number of pilots, and video channels used, and start racing.

The LapRF will run all day, measuring lap times and speaking the results. There is no better tool to allow pilots to measure their performance, and work to improve it

No More Transponders!

The lapRF uses the Radio Frequency energy emitted by the Video Transmitter on the model to detect its presence within the race gate.

The current generation of racing drones have two things in common, they all use 5.8GHz video downlinks, and they all need to be on different channels to race together. This is all that the lapRF system needs to precisely time events.

No RFID transponders, no Infra-Red transponders, no complex installations. Just place the lapRF system in the start/finish gate, and start racing.

Bluetooth Link to Phones and Tablets

The LapRF Personal Timing System includes a bluetooth module which can quickly link an iOS or Android device to the gate.

Enter pilot names, start the race, and the lap times will be spoken along with the pilot’s name. All lap times will be shown in a table, along with average, and best lap times.
Any loss of Bluetooth connection will not result in loss of lap times. When Bluetooth is reconnected, all missed lap times will be transferred to the app.

Personal… but Shareable

The LapRF Personal Timer was designed to be used by one pilot, that is where it is the most precise. But if you want to invite a few friends along for a quick race around the park, we support that too, out of the box. No need to figure out how to interface your mates timers together, or run multiple apps, just share yours. Timing resolution (which is more than enough with one pilot) decreases as you add more pilots, but when you start with more than enough, and share, you end up with just enough.

Integrated 2600mAh Battery

Integrating a high capacity, but common 18650 battery (available from vape shops worldwide) the LapRF doesn’t need an external power supply.

To allow quick in-the-field replacements, we included a handy battery door in the bottom of the unit, minimizing down time during battery changes.

When it is time to recharge the battery, the integrated charger just requires a USB hookup, no need to remove the battery.

Custom Timing Receivers

Instead of using a standard receiver module in the timing system, ImmersionRC’s hardware engineering team designed a custom module, which can be calibrated on-the-fly to adapt to the different power levels found in races.

Sensitive enough to detect passing quads, but selective enough to ignore adjacent channel interference. Heavily filtered to ignore off-band interference common at race events.

To top it all off, we designed custom antennas with gate-shaped beams which let you precisely define the detection area of the timing system (something that competitive units sorely lack). These antennas are designed for RHCP/LHCP, and Linear polarization, covering everything that will be seen at a race event.

LiveTime Integration

The ImmersionRC LapRF Race Timing Systems are both supported by the industry-leading LiveTime Scoring Engine.

Full integration of the personal system via USB, or the event system via Ethernet, including full auto-calibration of the timing system, and even a built-in Spectrum Analyzer to analyze event background noise.

Hands-Free Control from Apple Watch

This is a little feature that sounds like a gimmick, but in practice works quite well.
Your race is configured, your fellow pilots are ready to race, goggles down, and now you need to take your phone/tablet from your pocket to hit the start button.

Nope, just reach to your wrist, hit the start button, and wait for the adrenaline buildup that accompanies most race starts.

Of course, as an added bonus, this doubles your bluetooth range!. Just leave your phone/tablet within range of the timing system, and use your watch to remotely control it from up to 100m away.

Pimp your Puck!

During development, we referred to the lapRF personal edition as the ‘Timing Puck’ (its resemblance to a hockey puck apparently had something to do with that)

Pimping your Puck therefore seems an appropriate way to refer to customizing your timing puck, making it stand out from the crowd, in the same way that our Vortex community loves to pimp their quads

Several ‘pimp kits’ will be offered soon after product release, in colours defined by the community.

Connex ProSight Compatible

The LapRF is just as comfortable in the digital world as analog. Many successful mixed Analog and Digital races have been run by race director Joe Scully with a great deal of success.

NOTE: Prosight units must be placed in fixed-frequency mode in order to connect pilots and channels.

External BT Antenna for More Range

A sleek internal Bluetooth antenna gives more range than most pilots need.
For extra range, the LapRF casing has the ability to use a standard U.FL to SMA cable, and 2.4GHz antenna (not included, but easy to source)

Betaflight F4 Flight Controller


$54.00

Betaflight F4 is the follow-up design to the very popular BetaflightF3. Following the same path as Betaflight F3 we have kept a very similar footprint in terms of design with a few added modifications. The F405 has replaced the F303 to allow for lower CPU loads.

We have eliminated the 5v/3.3v jumper and added two separate connection points, one for SBUS and one for spektrum users. The jumper still remains for the battery voltage/5v connection for connecting your camera. While wiring the board it is recommended to get power for your VTX either from a different 5v source on the board or if using a higher voltage VTX power it from the battery input coming into the PDB. Running ground loop at AGND with GND wires from camera and VTX is still recommended to give the cleanest video signal.

Another small design change to this board was changing the BEC, this change takes the recommended 5v 2A current limit and drops it down to 5V 1.5A, its a small change but one that we opted for in order to use a more reliable BEC.

BetaflightF4 now comes with telemtry pads for BLHeli32 ESCs these pads are located between the signal and gnd pads for the ESC connections.

Features

Integrated PDB
Built-in OSD customizable via Betaflight OSD
Current sensor
Intuitive layout
Flash memory for blackbox
Tailored to support Betaflight
When running 8K/8K, CPU usage remains low

Specifications

F405 Processor
MPU6000 Gyro/ACC Sensor
BEC Max current 5V 1.5A
Built-in OSD – configurable via Betaflight GUI
