RAK Wireless FlyLink HD

Has anyone used the FlyLink HD or any other FlyLink system from RAK Wireless?
http://www.rakwireless.com/en/video_project/FlyLink_HD

Ive been searching around on the net and multiple forums but cannot find it mentioned anywhere.
Looks promising, 1080p@30fps transmission with 200ms delay up to 800m.
Only $95 on alibaba

Apparently, can get the source code/SDK for their IOS and Android Apps so then support could be added for Mission Planner, Tower, QGroundControl etc…

Hi there! We have tested:

  • Flylink HD+ (RAK566 + RAK567
  • R2Teck DVL1.
  • Amimon Connex (not tested extensivly)

In our case this is for a client that worries about quality as the image is shown on a 65" 4k screen. The result was: FlylinkHD is the clear winner for our application (big screen and require maximal quality)

FlylinkHD+:
Pro:

  • IMPRESSIVE maximal quality
  • Possible to change the quality settings (Quality/Resolution/GOP(?) and Framerate)
  • “transparent UART protocol” over UDP with configurable baudrate
  • Has an SDK (Android, iOS, Windows), I control it in Linux in Python.
  • Tested up to 200m FullHD with maximal quality (We can see the trees branches
  • Can be received up to 200m without base station (not tested, it came bound so we did not unbind it)
  • Can be received up to 800m witth a base station (not tested)
  • Using WiFi
  • Cheap
  • Can be used with different transmitting/receiving modules depending on the need
  • Technical support replied super fast! If in China working hours, same day answer else I got the reply the day after.
  • Can retrieve the stream via Ethernet, connected to a router for further processing simultaneously to getting it over WiFi and HDMI.
  • 250$ (as low as 100$ for a different pack)

Cons:

  • Documentation is quickly written and has multiple incomplete documents that are almost complete when put all together.
  • 300ms latency

R2Teck DVL1:
Pro:

  • Configuration of the transmission power
  • Not using WiFi (longer range)
  • One document for documentation

Cons:

  • Quality is the worse of the 3 modules. The quality is similar to the Flylink with VGA resolution and low-quality setting.
  • No configuration for the quality possible
  • No SDK
  • NOT possible to disable the OSD. Once we reboot it comes back.
  • Multiple different versions with the exact same version number (Different LEDs, different antenna sizes between the two packages (one is small, one is long), one base station had a USB port)
  • If you watch the WiFi stream, the HDMI stream starts to fail (green lines)
  • 500$

Amimon Connex:
Pro:

  • Very good quality
  • Automatic quality configuration
  • SBUS forwarding for camera control
  • Near zero latency
  • Can multicast to multiple receivers (up to 4) but you have to buy them

Cons:

  • No manual quality configuration (to reduce framerate and increase quality)
  • 1500$

Is the Flylink HD is available? I couldn’t find it on their site.

no any more. discontinued
