Immersion RC Tramp HV 5.8GHz Video Transmitter
Smallest, Lightest in the Business
This is the smallest, lightest, high-power, high-voltage A/V Transmitter in the business, 31 x 20mm, with a slender 17mm waist, weighing only 4 grams!
Even at this size, the traditional ImmersionRC 5V filtered camera power supply is also included. Twin ground cables from the tiny locking connectors ensure that noisy supply currents keep the camera supply clean.
To cap it off, in addition to running directly from a 2s-4s (HV) LiPo, the TrampHV will happily run from a 5V supply already available in the quad.
The ImmersionRC TrampHV was the first transmitter to support Pit Mode, which was introduced successfully at the FPVAirShow in France.
Pit mode transmits a tiny amount of power on a pre-defined frequency to allow for quad setup at a race event without disrupting the show.
Pit mode on the TrampHV is a little different than other offerings, being controlled by race directors transparently at drone races. A race director can stay legal by choosing a pit frequency authorized for use at the event, which can be different for events in different regions.
Programmed at the event using the Touch’n’Race wand.
Touch ‘n’ Race for Pilots
The personal TNR wand avoids dip-switch hell even in the local park.
Touch-free programming of video transmitters before you launch, eliminating frequency collisions, eliminating the ‘what channel was I on last’ question, and allowing power levels to be modified between flights to adapt to local conditions.
Note that the wand is not required to operate the transmitter. A traditional button + LED user interface may also be used to program channel, band, and power level.
We have all experienced long delays at the starting grid before starting a race. No airflow over the electronics and video transmitters overheating.
Most video transmitters (even the higher end units) have no thermal protection whatsoever and will happily cook themselves and prematurely fail.
The TrampHV is a little different. It constantly monitors the temperature of the Tx, and gracefully reduces power output to increase battery life and protect the transmitter. As soon as the props start spinning, it detects the temperature reduction and quickly boosts power output.
Screened for Protection, and Certification
The only Video Transmitter in this size and weight class with a fully screened RF deck, providing protection against dust, dirt and knocks, while ensuring smooth sailing through the RTT&E certification process.
An optional plastic case can be easily installed to increase this protection even further, without adding excessive size and weight.
The TrampHV was designed alongside ImmersionRC’s RF Lap Timing system, with certified compatibility.
LapRF eliminates the need for transponders on the quad for lap timing, and instead uses the energy emitted by the 5.8GHz transmitter on the quadcopter.
Two LapRF versions will be available, a 16-channel race version for larger events, and a personal system no larger than a hockey puck for personal use (up to 4 pilots). Both versions sport a wireless connection to a smart phone for timing and configuration.
A telemetry port on the TrampHV allows tight integration with any quad equipped with a spare serial port.
Program the channel, band, and power level, along with special modes such as Pit Mode.
Another first, introduced by ImmersionRC at FPVAirRace, is technology which allows video transmitters to power up cleanly on their assigned channel without wiping out neighboring channels.
Gone are the days when your fellow pilots need to hover safely why you power up beside them.
This technology enables asynchronous race starts, where pilots join a race at any time without creating any interference.
Each and every TrampHV is factory calibrated to ensure precise power outputs, especially at the critical low-power race levels. No more cross-talk from 25mW transmitters which are instead emitting 200mW!, or worse, 25mW transmitters which emit much lower power levels.
No more RF lap timing issues caused by pilots running wildly different power levels.
