R8 Radio System Upgrade Pack 1.2 is now available for download !
The RC Logger R8 Radio System is the Official 8-Channel Transmitter and Receiver for the RC EYE NovaX 350 and RC EYE Navigator 250. The multi-channel transmitter, RT8-TPM, allows user assignment on all switches against all channels. The transmitter also contains a LCD display which supports Telemetry data from the NovaX’s / Navigator's GPS module, the Battery voltage and the RSSI (signal strength of receiver) from the NovaX / Navigator. It also supports UART input from Trainer port and forward to receiver to allow future expansion as well as real time long distance digital connection to your copter. You could also connect this transmitter set and use it to pilot our RC EYE One Xtreme. The RC Logger Receiver RR8-TP will also be included in the set to pair up with the RT8-TPM to fully utilize the AFHD System.
A solid and reliable Automatic Frequency Hopping Digital System (AFHDS) spread spectrum technology is integrated within the RT8-TPM. This highly sophisticated radio transmission system will guarantee you a long range jamming-free and long battery life experience with the NovaX / Navigator.
Keep In Touch
The RT8-TPM uses a high gain and high quality multi-directional antenna. Linked with a high sensitivity receiver, this radio system guarantees a long range radio transmission. The low profile antenna also makes the transmitter easier to store and carry around. This TX is also PPM and PWM compatible to suit your preference.
Program With Ease
The RT8-TPM allows user assignment on all switches against all channels easily. This 8-Channel transmitter is perfect for the NovaX / Navigator and is compatible for your other quads and copters. It also features a 3-position switch for flight modes and two adjustable knobs. Making it superb for new pilots and experienced pilots alike.
Chart Your Flight
The large backlit LED display at the bottom on the Transmitter supports telemetry data and shows battery voltage and RSSI (signal strength of receiver) to keep your NovaX / Navigator in check. Also, raw GPS data and the distance between the take-off point and the current position of your Quad will also be displayed for better flight experience.
A ‘Human Touch’
Designed with Pilot Friendly Ergonomics in mind, the RT8-TPM fits your hands for an easier grip and is balanced for easier neck strap use which overall serves to provide less fatigue during your long flights. The NovaX / Navigator color scheme was also implemented to give it a cool overall aesthetic design.
Your Controller, Your Choice
The R8 Radio Set is capable with both Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) and Pulse Position Modulation (PPM) which gives you, the owner, to have a wide scope of choice over the crafts that you can master as well as how you program your customized controls.
