Compact, elegant, integrated, portable. Many more attributes can be given to the TBS Groundstation. In the end it boils down to the only thing you'll be using from here on forth as your receiver, video splitter, (backup) screen, and more.
At the heart of the Groundstation is a built in 2.4GHz receiver feeding a LCD screen and four buffered video outputs, protected by a custom aluminum enclosure. A barrel connector provides juice to your video goggles, allowing you to power everything off a single 3S battery. The built-in low voltage alarm lets you know when the fun is over before the lights go out.
The LCD screen is 4-inches and it can be turned on and off to save power. It works in the brightest of daylight thanks to the LED-backlight. All the display settings have been tweaked beforehand for maximum picture quality. Putting a small display on the groundstation makes it perfect for portable use and travelling.
The four video outputs are split across two RCA connectors and two custom, locking RJ45 connectors. These inhibit cable slips for your most vital cabling. You can use the supplied cables to connect your video goggles, or make a DIY RJ45 socket for a totally clean, locked connection between your video receiver and display device. The RJ45 connector runs power, audio and video.
Another cool feature is the VTx port, which can power an external video transmitter (on another frequency, e.g. 5.8GHz) with any antenna for re-broadcasting the video feed locally. This makes it easy for fellow pilots or bystanders to tune in on the feed. Any device with a suitable video receiver (wireless DVR, receivers, screens, goggles, etc.) can all grab the video feed, untethered to the groundstation, and follow the flight. Because the signal path is analog there is virtually zero latency.
Last but not least, there is a USB port (+5V 1A) which can handle charging of GoPro’s, DVR’s, goggles or mobile phones. This is a great for extended flying sessions out in the field or remote areas.
Important: If you use a 2.4GHz R/C radio you must select a video channel which does not lie in its band (generally CH5 to CH8). Better still, use a R/C system on a different frequency, either 36MHz, 72MHz, 433MHz (UHF), or 5.8GHz to control your model. We recommend using the TBS Crossfire for long range RC control.
This time we are now including a TBS UNIFY PRO 5G8 and a rubber duckie antenna with each purchase.
The TBS UNIFY PRO 5G8 gives you 600m (and more!) of rebroadcasting range and P-P-P-Power!
Follow these simple rules, even if rumors on the internet suggest otherwise, and you will have success in 2.4Ghz FPV.
