Arkbird 2-Axis Mini Airplane Gimbal with HD Camera with PWM Control

Title

Arkbird 2-Axis Mini Airplane Gimbal with HD Camera

£179.90
Here we have an all in one stabilised camera gimbal from Arkbird. The gimbal will work for both drones and aircraft, but its particularly suited to aircraft as it's inverted - the advantage being you can mount it your airplane's top deck and not have to worry about extending the undercarriage to fit it. It's a nice small unit and at only 80grams flight time should take much of a hit. It’s a lot lighter than using a GoPro and gimbal combination which is typically around 90g for a GoPro and 150g for a gimbal. The gimbal has 2-axis stabilisation in pitch and roll; you can also control the pitch angle via a spare channel on your radio control. The camera records 2K resolutions at 30fps or 1080P at 60fps, you just need to install a micro SD card. You can also remotely trigger the camera via PWM. Finally, there is a video output connection should you want to use it for FPV.

Arkbird 11dBi 5.8GHz Double Biquad Long Range Antenna

Title

Arkbird 11dBi 5.8GHz Double Biquad Long Range Antenna

£24.90
This is Arkbird's Double Biquad Antenna, which is suitable for long range FPV flying on 5.8GHz. It’s a directional antenna with 11db of gain and a relatively wide beamwidth (105degrees). The standing ware ratio (SWR) of this antenna is low at 1.03 meaning less multipathing and therefore a clearer picture. The working range of this antenna is 5-6 times greater than that provide by a typical clover antenna. The antenna is available in two versions, one with a 20cm soft extension lead (used by the Arkbird Mini Antenna Tracker) and another with 6cm hard extension lead.

Arkbird 5.8GHz Mini Auto Antenna Tracker (AAT)

Title

Arkbird 5.8GHz Mini Auto Antenna Tracker (AAT)

£199.00
An auto antenna tracker is a must for long distance FPV/Video operation and ensures the maximum reception at all times by tracking the model as it flies in all directions and altitudes.  The Arkbird AAT greatly improves the transmission range by pointing a high gain directional panel antenna at your model wherever it goes. This allows you to greatly increase your range without having to ever aim your antenna. It does that for you! The tracker works by using an airborne module on your model, which embeds GPS coordinates information into the transmitted FPV video signal. This is then received and decoded by the ground station to determine the azimuth (heading) and then direct the antennas beam to ensure it remains locked onto your model. The great thing about using an antenna tracker is that you can operate a FPV transmitter at legal power levels and still get good range. While it's possible to get FPV video reception over several 100 meters when using an omni-directional antenna at 25mW, you could expect to increase this to several kilometers by using a high gain directional antenna. This is the mini version for the Arkbird Auto Antenna Tracker. Aside from size, the most notable difference between the units is that the Mini ATT incorporates it's own 5.8GHz FPV receiver, where as with the full size ATT you have to provide a video receiver. Hence if you are using a frequency other than 5.8GHz or wish to use your own 5.8GHz Rx then use the full size ATT and not the Mini. The inetgrated Rx found in the Mini ATT makes the setup even easier as you only need to provide power (12V / 3S) and output the video to your screen or goggles using the cable provided. The airborne module is exactly the same and requires a GPS to work. If you are using one of the Arkbird GPS Autopilots you can share its GPS module with the AAT Airborne Module. If you aren't using one of the Arkbird autopilots you can purchase a plug and play M8N GPS module for it here. Prior your first flight or change of flying site, it is important to calibrate the tracker to ensure it is pointing directly at your model. To begin with do a short-range test flight and make sure the antenna is tracking your directly model. If the tracking is off, land and recalibrate the tracker. We recommend mounting the Mini ATT to the back of your monitor using some Dual Lock SJ3551 Tape. Beware that the ground station has a built in magnetometer so keep it away from sources of magnetic interference. Features: Inbuilt 40CH 5.8GHz FPV Receiver, works with 5.8GHz FPV systems Includes 12dBi Directional Antenna (RP-SMA) Greatly improves long distance transmission Plug and play setup Very compact, super portable Dynamic positioning can be achieved with additional GPS module USB interface for upgrades FAQs: Does the Arkbird Mini AAT System only work with 5.8GHz Video Systems? Yes, the Arkbird Mini ATT will only work with 5.8GHz analogue video frequencies a it has a built in 5.8GHz video receiver. Can I use another Antenna? Yes, you can change to a different 5.8GHz antenna (RP-SMA), although we have found that the stock 12 dBi delivers good performance. Does the GPS information affect the video? No, it's invisible and the ground station decodes this information. Does the ATT require an Arkbird Autopilot to work? No, the ATT system just requires a GPS module connected to the Airborne Module, although you can use it with the Arkbird Autopilots. Does it work with any FPV camera? It must be used with an analogue FPV camera that is PAL (not NTSC). Please note - the AAT ground station has a built in magnetometer so keep it away from sources of magnetic interference. Required: FPV system: Camera, Video Transmitter, Antennas - Omni-Directional for Model / High Gain Directional for Ground Station GPS Module for ATT Airborne system / or shared GPS module with Arkbird Autopilot 2.0. 12V Power Supply or 3S LiPo Optional: Arkbird AAT Airborne Module - the ATT Ground Station includes one airborne module. If you want to equip another FPV model with support for antenna tracking you can purchase an additional air module. Additional GPS Module - the ATT Ground Station can fix its home location from the GPS module connected to the airborne module, however if you wish to move the antenna tracker when in use, you'll need to connect to it a GPS module so that it knows its live home position.

Arkbird AAT Auto Antenna Tracker FPV Ground Station

£285.00
An auto antenna tracker is a must for long distance FPV/Video operation and ensures the maximum reception at all times by tracking the model as it flies in all directions and altitudes.  The Arkbird AAT greatly improves the transmission range by pointing a high gain directional panel antenna (not supplied) at your model wherever it goes. This allows you to greatly increase your range without having to ever aim your antenna. It does that for you! The tracker works by using an airborne module on your model, which embeds GPS coordinates information into the transmitted FPV video signal. This is then received and decoded by the ground station to determine the azimuth (heading) and then direct the antennas beam to ensure it remains locked onto your model.

The tracker has 2 sets of sensors for dual-coupling correction and is equipped with a magnetic compass and inertial navigation compass (gyroscope) for high precision tracking. Take off point coordinates can be automatically saved after powering up, and dynamic positioning is achieved by connecting a further GPS model (available separately) with the Ground Station. This is very handy if the antenna tracker is used on a moving vehicle or in the event of an emergency landing or searching for a lost model. The ATT system is easy to setup. The Ground Station tracker uses plug and play cabling to connect with your FPV receiver (not provided) and simply requires a 12V (3S) power input. The ATT airborne module requires a GPS to work.

Features: Plug and play when used with Arkbird Autopilot 2.0 Greatly improves long distance transmission 2 sets of sensors for dual-coupling correction High quality powerful steering motor with 360° slip ring Advanced fully automatic calibration algorithm for one step calibration Dynamic positioning can be achieved with additional GPS module Dual mounting, suction cup or tripod USB interface for upgrades AAT Usage: Power up FPV VTX / airside module (LED flashing quickly). Power up FPV VRX and tune into VTX frequency. Power up ground station and check for flashing lights (Red / Yellow) which indicate a GPS lock and decoded video feed. Position airborne module near ground station and press HOME button for 5 seconds to store GPS home location (If you have a GPS module connected to the ground module you can skip this step). Press CALIBRATE (CAL) button for 5 seconds to perfrom compass calibration. Confirm heading direction is pointing North and if use button one and three to adjust if required. Press CAL four times to confirm setup and exit. Fly FAQs: Does the Arkbird AAT System only work with 5.8GHz Video Systems?

Arkbird-AAT Auto Antenna Tracker System Airborne Module

Title

Arkbird AAT Airborne Module

£47.90
This is the ATT Airborne Module that is used in conjunction with the Arkbird Auto Antenna Tracking Ground Stations, either the full size ATT Ground Station or the Arkbird Mini ATT Ground Station. The job of the Airborne Module is to embed GPS co-ordinate information into the video signal of your FPV system, which can then be received and decoded by the ATT Ground Station to enable it to track your model through the sky.  Both ATT systems ship with an ATT airborne module, so you only need to purchase this module if you want to equip another FPV model with support for antenna tracking. The ATT requires GPS to work. If you are using one of the Arkbird GPS Autopilots you can share its GPS module with the AAT Airborne Module*. If you aren't using one of the Arkbird autopilots you can purchase a plug and play M8N GPS module for it here. *Please note that the Arkbird Autopilot 2.0 has an inbuilt AAT Airborne Module so you don't need to use a separate Airborne Mdule in models that use that autopilot. FAQs: Does the Arkbird AAT System only work with 5.8GHz Video Systems? The Arkbird Mini ATT is only compatible with 5.8GHz as it uses a built in 5.8GHz receiver. The full size Arkbird ATT will work with all analogue video frequencies, as it requires the user to supply their own video receiver. Does the GPS information affect the video? No, it's invisible and the ground station decodes this information. Does the ATT require an Arkbird Autopilot to work?
