    Connex, please provide us with some RAW footage from the downlink (you can host a file on MediaFire or one of the other file sharing sites). The YouTube video posted is not that much better than a 480p transmission. Granted, this could be due to YT's horrendous compression.

    So far, like many have said, this leaves much to be desired. It looks more like a widescreen version of the 480p that we already get. For 5 times the price of a traditional analog system, I would expect at least 2-3 times the quality of an SD downlink.

    The way this was marketed made it sound like some sort of revolutionary game changer. Please back up your claims or reduce the price to better match the market, otherwise, your not going to sell very many of these things.

    Amimon seems to be much more active over at RCgroups.
    I don't see any mention of the TX antennas, only the connector type?
    ^ Tx antennas need to be linear. CP won't work with MIMO systems it uses multipath to its advantage, the very thing we try to avoid with an analog single-antenna link.

    Q: how do the transmitter antennas look like? can they be replaced with 5.8 analog antennas? SPWs for example?
    A: ProSight antennas were designed to cover the entire 5GHz band and were optimized and tested for FPV racing. Most 5.8GHz antennas don't cover the entire 5GHz band and may cause degradation in performance.

    But why is it only 30fps?... Can an I use a differnt camera with it?
    ^^ They have said you can't use another camera with it, but not sure why. The cam is actually 720@30 but the output of the receiver is 720@60 which is a more common HD format. Probably to reduce the bandwidth needed for transmission.


    Q: will there be an upgrade for the camera to run at 60fps?
    A: We'll consider it for future products and updates.

    ProSight will enable multiple systems in the same race, including a mix of analog and HD systems.

    ..multiple could mean 2, which would be pretty bad.

    First post says it supports 27 digital channels. Not certain if every channel can operate simultaneously though.

    Doubt it, they are probably not all non-overlapping channels. Several including me have asked how many can fly simultaneously, and so far I've not seen an answer from Amimon.

    On the regular connex, the air units antennas where taken directly out of a laptop. Dual band PCB dipole as cheap as you can get. -Hugo

    Considering most people are moving to x frames, and I can't think of a single 210 frame with 70mm of length available I don't understand why they went to production... It could be the same price as anything else and I wouldn't buy it. Then there's the camera mount, or lack thereof.
