    Attention [Info] RC EYE Navigator 250

    In addition to what has been posted over at RCGroups.Com we have just opened this new section to allow users to discuss the Navigator 250 development and product release within the RC Logger community.

    Detailed product information will be made available shortly. Just head over to RCGroups and read what has been posted so far. The thread is located here.

    Awaiting your kind participation.

    Hey Chris,

    Something I have been wondering about the last few days is what type of camera is going to be built in? Is it going to be CMOS or CCD?

    Jamie, the Navigator's vision system is powered by Fat Shark. We are cooperating with them. We will use a customized version of the following model:

    Thanks Chris, for that info. I knew it was going to be Fat Shark compatible via VtX but wasn't sure about the camera specs. I really dig that little camera in terms of being able to record directly to SD.

    I'd really love to see it come with a CCD sensor rather than CMOS. It's a great deal better in all aspects in terms of quality video/smoothness, shutter etc. Especially for FPV flight it would be a night and day difference with two of the same camera's side by side with the two different sensors. A CCD sensor could make a huge difference in the stock camera. Just something I've been thinking about since it is going to be a FPV focused craft. Also it would once again add another layer of innovation. There are very few CCD FPV camera's on the market as most are still using CMOS. I don't have tons of knowledge in this area, but really don't think it would require much of anything to use CCD instead.

    Also this has been a big discussion in a circle of friends that are all into FPV racing and have really been wishing for a CCD option. I'd think that alone would be a strong selling point.

    Here's a nice video showing the effect of props in the using the 2 different sensors:

    The NovaX pre-order will be available within the next 7 to 10 days. I will keep you posted as soon as the pre-order page is up and running.

    Attention

    Hi all.

    We decided to share an exiting update concerning our Navigator 250 development status.

    Attached the latest official design updates based on feedback received during the CES show in Las Vegas and the Toy Fair in Nuremberg, Germany earlier this year. We have implemented a number of new features including a fully removable battery tray, just "plug & snap". The design is aerodynamically adjusted, stylish and robust while retaining easy maintainability and a modular concept. On the inside it looks even better as on the outside. Obviously I can't share the inside at this point of time as we do not want to get our competitors benefit from our modular design concept.

    The improvements and changes are largely based on our internal first prototype mechanical review as well as consumer feedback while attending the CES in Las Vegas as well as the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, both earlier this year. The camera is moved forward to allow a clear view. We are no starting to build the new flyable final prototype before heading for production.

    Those who are currently testing our NovaX 350 pre-release version will certainly have the chance to continue to test the Navigator prior to releasing it. The Navigator FC is based on our NovaX 350 FC providing just the same amount of vast features.

    Looking forward to read your thoughts.
