Hobbymate full range receiver compatible with Frsky Radio Transmitter
Due to the switchable broadcast power, the FPV range is not an issue. The 48 channels VT5804 VTX can be set to 600 mW transmission power if needed. Both, frequency and power can be adjusted through the on-board control button as well as remotely via your transmitter (IRC Tramp works after FC-VTX wiring is done properly).
Thanks to the on-board microphone, using a compatible FPV headset, you can hear the noise of the four powerful brushless motors. That’s the ultimate immersive FPV flight experience.
As the battery is attached under the belly of the drone, there is enough room on top for a second DVR camera (whether GoPro Session or Foxeer Legend alike).
First off all: Do not power ON the Comet drone with installed propellers till everything is configured properly and double checked in Betaflight Configurator, although we did all of the configuration. Also, prior any setup process always read the product’s manual!
The main difference between PNP and BNF package, is that while BNF requires only binding process, PNP requires also radio receiver installation & wiring.
Binding example with Taranis Q X7 transmitter
Firstly, create a new model on my transmitter and name it “Comet”. Secondly, under the “Model setup” screen, I set “Internal RF” and operation mode to “D16”. After these two steps you can selected the “Bind” option. When the Taranis Q X7 enters into “Bind” state it makes a high-pitched beeping.
