The TBS Tracer series of 2.4GHz transmitter modules offer the latest cutting edge technology found in radio links. Boasting a 250Hz radio link, pilots will ask them selves, "where is the latency?" Total latency is a scant 3ms. To date, no other radio protocol can come close to this level of performance. Thanks for years of development and knowledge found in the Crossfire system, TBS has brought it all forward into the new Tracer 2.4GHz module, and is now one of the leaders in pure RF performance. The modules are offered in two forms: "JR" and "Lite" for the widest compatibility possible.
Receivers available for the Tracer are nano sized, and can be adapted for use with drones, planes, and helicopters. Boasting up to 15 miles of range, pilots can be fully confident in the radio link for such a wide variety of application.
Features at a Glance:
The Fastest Radio Link
- Long range, adaptive and robust remote control system for your drone & aircraft
- Low latency, 250Hz update rate (5x faster than typical - world's fastest) for mind-blowing accuracy
- Two-way communication link with real-time link vitals and telemetry
- OTA firwmare updates, auto-bind, multi-bind support
- TBS Cloud connectivity with telemetry output for smartphone apps
- Fully configurable by OpenTX and TBS TANGO remote using CRSF protocol
- "Unlimited" amount of people can fly at the same time
- Output power: 25mW / 100mW
- 8 or 12ch output via CRSF, SBUS, inverted SBUS or PPM
- Serial Modem capable of transmitting MAVLink or other serial protocols (up & downlink)
In a race, microseconds count. Goggles down, thumbs up - are you ready for a two-way 250Hz radio link? End to end latency: basically zero (okay, 3ms!). Range: for days. Nothing comes close! TBS took the best from Crossfire and shrunk it down & sped it up.
Wide Use Application
A single operation mode satisfies all requirements. A spine-tingling 250Hz refresh rate. Plenty of penetration and range to outperform even the most serious video link. Full telemetry capability is standard, without any range degradation! Thanks to Crossfire pedigree, drone pilots, traditional R/C pilots and everyone in between can instantly tap into the familiar lineup of compatible software, devices, remotes and mounting boards.
OTA firmware updates, auto-bind, multi-bind, LUA device configuration such as flight controller PIDs, etc. and cloud connectivity: No problem! These are all features that TBS first brought into the R/C space with TBS Crossfire! All receivers arrive in binding mode and it remembers your bind across all of your radios, so the bind button is technically not needed ever.
Under the Hood
TBS Tracer runs on the Crossfire engine. Over 6 years of active development and by far the most popular R/C system for FPV enthusiasts! You instantly tap into the same reliability, features and compatibility that drone pilots see as synonymous to peace of mind. So what's the difference? Higher update rate, lower latency, smaller antennas due to higher frequency. Crossfire users will feel right at home!
The TBS Promise
In over 10 years of TBS's existence, software updates have always been free, continuous and plenty. Hardware is built for longevity and comes packed with a great range of features that are yet to be unlocked. Support has always been laser-focused on customer satisfaction. For pilots, by pilots.
It is the reason why TBS products have the largest following, and why investment into TBS Tracer will continue to pay dividends in future - just like TBS Crossfire continues to do for all hobbyists.
