Announcement from Caddx
To take advantage of the potential of the Walksnail Avatar digital video transmitters, the user must have Caddx or FatShark FPV goggles from the same digital FPV ecosystem. However, everything has changed since today! It became known that a few hours ago Caddx announced a universal digital video receiver adapted to interface with any analog FPV goggles that have an HDMI connector in their interface! FatShark HD02 and Skyzone owners get ready!
The dimensions of the receiver are 11.4 × 5.5 × 2.2 cm and weigh 83 grams. It can receive compressed H.265 images from Avatar HD and Avatar Mini 1S transmitters. It is equipped with 4 built-in antennas, two of which are directional. Slave. frequency range: 5.725 — 5.850 GHz.
The receiver can stream 1080p video at 60 fps or 720p video at 100 fps with a 22 millisecond latency. Claimed max. range up to 4 km.
It is also equipped with an HDMI output connector for broadcasting the signal to external devices. Images can be stored on a microSD memory card. The power supply must be connected to the DC jack (DC 5.5 × 2.1 mm; 7V — 21V (2S — 5S)).
At the moment, the developer offers the Walksnail Avatar VRX receiver in three different versions / configurations:
Walksnail Avatar VRX Avatar 1S Kit
Walksnail Avatar VRX Avatar HD Micro Kit
Walksnail Avatar VRX Avatar HD Nano Kit
Price and availability
The start of sales of the Walksnail Avatar VRX receiver is scheduled for December 10, 2022. It is currently available for pre-order.
Separately, I would like to note the very tempting price tag for the Walksnail Avatar VRX Avatar 1S Kit, given that only the Avatar Mini 1S will cost the consumer $109. By the way, this offer will be valid until the end of November 2022 (after this date, the Avatar Mini 1S transmitter will disappear from the kit).
However, at the time of the announcement, the developer set the following prices for all three kits (excluding shipping and taxes):
- Walksnail Avatar VRX Avatar 1S Kit — $199
- Walksnail Avatar VRX Avatar HD Micro Kit – $239
- Walksnail Avatar VRX Avatar HD Nano Kit – $239
