Venturing into the world of exciting First-Person-View (FPV) - Navigator is both an ideal trainer and racing platform!

If you want to learn and experience flying from a pilot’s perspective, the RC EYE Navigator is designed specially for you: a safe, fun and intuitive first step into First-Person-View (FPV). It comes complete and ready-to-fly, with an FPV vision system fully integrated!

The Navigator features a built-in high quality camera, linked to a 5.8 GHz video transmitter. It delivers real-time, gimbal-stabilized high quality images - you'll clearly see where you’re flying! The RC EYE Navigator features 1-Axis servo control, helping you keep your Navigator and camera stable and horizontal during flight.

 

The fully integrated and FatShark-compatible vision system delivers real-time, high quality images to your goggles or monitor - experience instant, true first person viewing!

 

The EYEControl: Navigator app instantly connects you via Bluetooth, helping to tune the Navigator exactly how you want it. Adjust features such as Low Altitude Control (minimum flying height), camera tilt, optional auto stabilization, Return-to-Home, Geo Fence, and much more to make the Navigator completely yours!

 

The "GEO Fence" and "Distance Fence" enable the pilots to restrict the maximum height and distance that the Navigator can achieve. This feature is a great training tool, it can aid pilots to adhere to any flying regulations that may be implemented within your flying area and it also allow new pilots in training to fly the Navigator without any worries of flying too high and too far.

Set your altitude, velocity, orientation, hold time and even custom task to perform at each task point along the way with Task Point Command System (T.P.C.S.). You the pilot are in full control of setting up a completely custom flight path all at the simple press of a few buttons within the EYEControl App.

*Firmware V3.0 is required*

 

With Point of Interest you can easily use the EYEControl: Navigator app (on iOS and Android) to set customizable flight parameters that keep the Navigator 250 focused on a central point of flying.

*Firmware V3.0 is required* 

 

Included as latest feature with the new Navigator firmware is the rather cool "SOS impact/ crash alert". It does help you to locate the unit after a crash. The SOS alert is triggered on impact in x- and y-axis and detects z-axis impacts as well.

"Return To Home" is a failsafe feature allowing the Navigator to fly back to its original take-off position in the event of a signal loss or pilot trigger.

Out of the box, the RC EYE Navigator comes with an easy-to-change battery, attached via a secure locking mechanism that features a fast release button. The Navigator includes an emergency power-off function that will stop the brushless motors immediately, providing a balance between power and uncompromising safety.  

Constructed out of lightweight yet, durable carbon fibre and composite material, this quadcopter features folding arms and landing gear for easy storage and transportation.

The removable propeller guards protect your Navigator, making it ideal for first-time pilots wanting to safely experience the excitement of FPV or while flying through densely-wooded areas.

The 8-channel fully proportional 2.4 GHz transmitter includes automatic digital frequency hopping. Real-time telemetry data is visible on an easy-to-see LCD display, making the Navigator simple to maneuvre and operate.

Almost as if a beacon in the night, this quadcopter features orientation LED lights for orientation. They double as multicolour flight status and position indicator, making the Navigator not only easier to fly and land, but also easier to see in the air, day or night.

    Glossary

    • GNSS: Advanced GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS and SBAS Global Navigation Satellite System. Allowing to establish a stable and precise X/Y-axis position hold as well as return to home. Position hold, in combination with Z-axis altitude height hold, is typically applied during aerial photography applications. Further GNSS allows recovering or locating your unit in case of an emergency.  

    • R.T.H.: "Return To Home" is a failsafe feature allowing the Navigator 250 to fly back to its original take-off position in the event of a signal loss or pilot trigger.

    • S.M.A.R.T.:  The "Software Managed Auto Return Technology" function provides App based simple user configuration options allowing pilots to set home location parameter through mobile devices via Bluetooth connectivity.
    • T.P.C.S.:  Known as "Task Point Command System" differs from commonly known way-points, thus allowing a full set of "tasks" to be completed on each defined "Task Point" such as a full 360 rotation for instance. T.P.C.S. is controlled by App also known as "EYE Control".

      After having such great times with the NovaX 350 I owed myself to try the Navigator 250. I don't have it for a long time, but I can tell you that it beats the quality standards of the other RCLogger products. It is truly an rtf drone, you don't need any guesswork or headache to get it in the air safely and have a great time with it.

      The list of feature it carries is just amazing for such a little craft, I think it is one of the most complete RC product you can bu today. And the best is that this marvel of technology does NOT come in a "beta" version. Every feature is working great and you feel that it's been tested again and again before release.

      I'm very happy with it and I'm sure I'll still be flyin it in a year, just like it's big brother the nova. I recommend it to any person that's looking for a great looking all-rounder quadcopter, and one of the first gps enabled fpv racers (and probably the best one at the time I'm writing this).
