Introducing the new Shark Byte TX5R.1 VTX by Fat Shark. This Digital HD Video Transmitter serves as a part for the Fat Shark Shark Byte - Digital HD Video System.

The Shark Byte TX5R.1 is a digital HD 720p 60fps video transmitter capable of delivering up to 200mw on 5.8GHz designed for FPV racing. The VTX has rubber grommet 20x20 relief holes, a secured MIPI connector, and a secured UFL connection will ensure this is the most robust Shark Byte transmitter to date. The TX5R.1 works with the Shark Byte RX5.1 goggle module to transmit video, and with a remote controller to wirelessly control the parameters for the transmitter and camera.

The power input range is 7V – 26V (2S – 6S). Though the TX5R.1 has integrated surge protection circuit, a large capacitor (220+uF) parallel with battery leads is recommended to smooth the power supply of the whole quad.

Suggested Antennas:

The Shark Byte system needs additional 5.8GHz antennas to operate. The TX5R.1 VTX unit has an U.FL port and needs an antenna on the transmitter side. We suggest using the Triumph Pro antenna for the best performance with the Shark Byte system.
