High Definition Live Video FPV Systems

This sections covers live video systems which can provide a high definition first-person video (FPV) from the vehicle back to either a ground station or FPV goggles. For other FPV systems, see First Person View (FPV) section.

Note

This system is not directly compatible with Mavlink. However, there is an MSP to MAVLink Arduino converter maintained by D3NGIT that allows it to provide telemetry data via the custom OSD. See https://github.com/d3ngit/djihdfpv_mavlink_to_msp_V2.

ukmook has put together a set of instructions on how to set this up here https://github.com/ukmook/qUark/tree/master/Mav-To-MSP#quark-flight-electronics

The DJI OcuSync Air System is an integrated high-resolution video transmission solution consisting of a camera, Air Unit module, three antennas, and other connectors. Working with DJI Goggles RE, the OcuSync Air System supports wireless transmission of video, images, and flight controller information.

The Air Unit can be attached to racing drones, model airplanes, RC cars, or unmanned enterprise vehicles used for rescue operations and inspections and supports both MSP and MAVLink telemetry input from firmware V01.05.00 and later.

Features

  • MAVLink & MSP Telemetry Input
  • 2.4 GHz/5.8 GHz dual-frequency transmission
  • FHSS and up to 19 fixed channels
  • High-resolution video transmission up to 1280×960 at 50 fps
  • Minimum latency: As low as 50 ms (at 480p at 50 fps)
  • Max transmission range: Up to 7 km (2.4 GHz, FCC compliance, unobstructed)
