I have been involved with the field testing of this tracker and have to say I`m impressed with its capabilities. I loved the fact you don't need any specialist equipment on board your plane. If it has a Vtx fitted then your good to go.

The tracking was perfect from it out over several km that we tested it at. It never drifted off, lost communication or had any glitches associated with the other styles of tracker.

If your a Boscam / Skyzone user then this is a brilliant bit of kit.

     Are there any plans to make another version that WILL play nice with immersionrc transmitters ??

Yes given that I guess that 70% + use Immersion? this would seem to limit the market...I can see that a specific brand of receiver might be an issue but can't quite see how a transmitter can be a problem ?

I would guess the other way around Adrian, my money would be on Boscam having much more customers due to being much more affordable.

An immersion version would surely drive the price up.

I was thinking the same thing, but then after I really took things into consideration, I decided it wasn't that much of a big deal.  Here's why -

If I'm plugging my goggles into a tracker to get the video, then my goggles don't care I have an ImmersionRC VRX inside

I know I don't want tracking with every plane quad I put up, I can happily fly 2km skew to skew in any direction and 5km with a 3 turn helical I can put on my Dominator and move my head.

So this only comes up if I wanted to do only 5.8 on longer range for me.  Which means it's about 1 plane currently that could manage that sort of distance.  SO as it stands I'd have to spend another £50 or so on one of those 32 ch VTX's which even after taking into account getting this tracker is still much cheaper than something like an MFD tracker

Of course - on the downside, it's 5.8 only whereas other trackers can work on any system.

swings and roundabouts though

Hi Gents,

Thanks for your posts/comments

During our field tests we found with the immersionrc transmitters although we had signal close in it soon degraded over distance as our system uses the Boscam RX5808 receiver modules we believe there is a conflict between brands that we can not address at this time.

The project was to bring an alternative, affordable and easy to use bit of tech to today's market for 5.8ghz.

Thanks

Thanks for your 'official' reply.
I assume that - if you wanted to produce an immersionrc friendly version - all you would need to change would be the rx receiver.
As an owner of an early version of the Ezuhf tracker system - which I find over-complicated to setup for each fly session, I would welcome an immersionrc version of your tracker.

Considering the changes to produce an immersionrc version appear 'simple' - I would suggest you will be missing extra sales, for little extra cost, if you do not produce an immersionrc compatible version.

Anyone else agree with me ???

Hi Wgt40w

I see where you are coming from and yes it is possible to convert the system if there was enough interest to make it viable then it is something to consider for sure

Thanks for your input we will look into it

WGT 40W.This was my point exactly...I guess that my club must be unusual as we nearly all use the Immersionrc products!

During the testing / development of the system I found that immersion compatability is a bit...  funny.

It seems to depend on the vtx models of theirs you use.

All of them work..  some work better..  others..   are just carp.

I guess they use different encoding technology. 

So muxh like the skyzone goggles.   It works.. but luck varies!

I would be happy to place a deposit for a first immersionrc version.

Have you tried some patch antennas rather than helicals on it?

Hi Andy,

 Sorry for the delay  and yes we are testing some at the minute for the manufacturing final that should fit in your original shroud design making it nice and compact.

attached is a link to a quick review from RCTV UK

Looks great,but your missing a big market share if it doesn`t  work with IRC.

Best of luck to you both.
