The TBS CROSSFIRE is a long range R/C link based on the newest RF technology, capable of self-healing two-way communications and range beyond comprehension. With a sensitivity of -130dB, full RF-side diversity, the features already implemented and the future upgrades to come make the TBS CROSSFIRE the best long range control link currently available.

Remote control links, however, are tasked with much more than range. Telemetry, robustness against interference, connectivity with smart devices, ease of use and the overall finish are too often sacrificed for that last bit of range. The Crossfire comes with plenty of range, and uses that margin for additional functionality and reliability. A bright future for FPV lies ahead :)

DEVELOPED BY EXPERTS:

Team BlackSheep has been notorious for long range records, close-to-ground proximity flying in the Alps and deep urban operations. During our numerous missions all around the globe we have gathered a list of requirements, and have found that no existing system can cover them all. So we set on a long and painful path to develop a RC link system entirely from scratch, put it through its paces for over a year to ensure top-notch reliability and state-of-the-art functionality.

Through the OLED Display on the transmitter, you can monitor the real-time location of your drone (TBS GPS or BlackBox with DJI Naza or APM-based GPS required). The up- and downlink status provide a feeling of safety, the configuration options through the OLED display do away with any PC-based configuration tools. The pulsing LED relays your link budget and link health in colorized form (green = keep going, orange = turn around). In case of a crash, the location of the drone is visible on the OLED as well. The built in battery on the receiver turns it into a beacon automatically - and it will continue to transmit its last known location until the battery runs out. 

IT JUST WORKS:

Apart from unparalleled maximum range, the thing that we are most proud about on the TBS CROSSFIRE is that it just works. In the past, our question always was "could our R/C link keep up?". Many missions were aborted, or lines weren't flown, due to external interference or other factors. Once we switched to the CROSSFIRE, all of these problems were gone. As long as we had video, we had control. And when the video was gone, we still had control - and telemetry. With the TBS CROSSFIRE comes peace of mind. 

TELEMETRY:

With the release of firmware V1.20, a bi-directional serial modem was added to CH7 and CH8 of the Diversity receiver. This allows for serial protocols such as MavLink to work without requiring separate RF modems. The telemetry range is up to 30km. In close range, adaptive bandwidth controls regulate the speed of the transmission to increase data throughput while maintaining a reliable link. Telemetry is collected from the flight controller as well as the CORE PRO / TBS CROSSFIRE, and shared between Crossfire TX and Short-Range mobile connectivitycapable ground stations (Laptop, Tablets, Mobile phones). With such tight integration, the TBS Crossfire is the logical choice for anyone using ArduPilot or Pixhawk platforms.
