The EagleEyesTM FPV Station integrates four of the main components you need for FPV on the ground, at a cost that's lower than many of the individual components presently available!
Receiver Diversity - when you connect two NTSC or PAL audio/video receivers (of any frequency), the EagleEyesTM picks the better signal at any given time, which can greatly reduce video fades and improve your FPV experience! A variety of diversity settings are configurable with the on-board switches and LED indicators.
Antenna Tracking - when coupled with our OSD Pro, the EagleEyesTM is the heart of a full-featured pan/tilt antenna tracker. Powerful, easy to use menus are provided for adjusting the EagleEyesTM to work flawlessly with the tracker of your choice. The built-in regulator drives even large pan/tilt servos, with no need for an external BEC.
Telemetry - When coupled with our OSD Pro, all Eagle Tree data (not just GPS position) are transmitted to your laptop, via your video transmitter and the EagleEyesTM USB port (separate USB cable required). Your flight can then be graphed and displayed with our powerful software, or visualized (either in real time or after your flight) with Google Earth!
Four Channel A/V Distribution - Ever wish you had more video/audio outputs? The EagleEyesTM has four built-in outputs!
Programmable Low Voltage Alarm - How is your ground station battery doing? Now you can program a low voltage alarm buzzer, which alerts you when your battery is below your chosen voltage. The buzzer can also be programmed to alert for other conditions, such as poor telemetry signal.
Two video inputs -NTSC/PAL, using your video receivers of any frequency. Video Input 2 is adjustable to match Video Input 1. Note that only one input needs to be used, if you are not using the Diversity feature.
Two audio inputs - Two monaural audio inputs are supported. Audio Input 2 is adjustable to match Audio Input 1. Note that only one input needs to be used, if you are not using the Diversity feature.
Four A/V outputs - Four video outputs (75 ohm) and four "line level" audio outputs
Power Input - Power input range approximately 6V to 14V. Barrel style power input with standard 2mm center pin.
Two Servo Outputs for pan and tilt trackers - Unit is capabable of delivering 5A burst output to drive even large pan/tilt servos.
USB Port for connecting to PC, for live PC display of telemetry and firmware update. Note: A standard USB "Mini-B" cable is required for these features, but not included.
Encasement - The EagleEyes board is protected by heavy duty, clear heatshrink. The EagleEyes does not include a plastic case at this time. A clear plastic case is planned for future release, and that should be compatibile with existing units. The case will be available for separate purchase.
Great product and a must have for the FPV ground station.
You can use it for tracking your plane when using the full Eagle Tree setup in the plane. (elogger, OSD Pro, GPS)
Or use it just a diversity station or video splitter without any Eagle Tree gear.
Just upload the latest firmware from Eagle Tree to have the best performance of this device.
Set the right levels for video with the pots for input 2.
If you switch between the videos, you should not notice any brightness change. Than its perfect.
Same for audio, but not that important, since only the video signal is analyzed for diversity switching.
If you use strong or very noisy servos for tracking, i suggest to use only the signal wire form the Eagle Eyes to the servos. For power use an external BEC, like the Turnigy low noise 3A BEC.this seems great so far. i havnt tested all the capabilitys. but there is an sd card slot and im un aware of what it does. anybody know?Arrived at least. For these price and for this product, unbelievable!!!! HK must be have clear case in stock for this product. I made my clear case and its now in safe on the antenna tracker.Using this for diversity only, one of the few diversity controllers that works on video input signal instead of receiver signal strength indicator.
Very good value for money.Super great! So cheap diversity and antenna tracking!I WILL BE USING THIS SOON LEAVING THIS TO ADD TO LATER.(THEY WONT LET YOU REVIEW AFTER 45 DAYSGreat station for a cheaper prise than in europe :) Haven't tried all the functions yet but so fr very pleased.WHEN WILL THERE BE STOCK Get some of those or take it away from your catalog.I have been waiting 3 months now and have just been told it will be another 2 to 3 weeks its getting ridiculous. Every time i ask hobbyking when will thay arive it seems to be allways be another 2 to 3 weeks. Not happy if i had not already paid for it i would have just got it from Eagle Tree website.
it would cost more but at least you would have it by nowIts a good product in my old $65 dreams ;) , , , , , , , ,
, , , , , , , , , , ,,I'm glad I have more than 1 hobby, because this product shipped after months of being backordered. I don't mind it as much because It's $20 less than the Eagle Tree website. I got it for the tracking ability and I'm impressed
