Introduction

The CADDXFPV Air Unit is an advanced video transmission module that supports a 5.8 GHz digital video signal and 720p 120fps image transmission, with a transmission range of up to 4 km and a minimum end-to-end latency within 28 ms*. The air unit can be mounted on a racing drone and used with DJI FPV Goggles or a remote controller to transmit video, control signals, and flight controller information wirelessly.

  • 💡 An electric soldering iron and soldering tin are required for connection. Make sure that there are no short circuits or open circuits when soldering the cables.
  • There are up to eight channels for the air unit depending on the region (FCC: eight, CE/SRRC: four, MIC: three). Each channel has a bandwidth of 20 MHz. The public
    channel is 8, which is the default channel when the equipment ls powered on. The channel can be changed manually to avoid interference from other devices.
  • ⚠ The air unit may become hot during or after operation. Do Not touch the air unit before it cools down.
  • DO NOT use the air unit for an extended period when the temperature is high or there is poor ventilation. Otherwise, the air unit may overheat and enter low power
    mode which will affect its performance. If the air unit enters low-power mode, restart it or wait for it to cool down and it will automatically return to normal.
  • Keep the antennas of the air unit at least40 mm apart. Keep the air unit away from metal objects or carbon fiber frames. Make sure to choose a position where the
    transmission will not be blocked during flight.
