    Awesome.

    Unfortunately, it will not work with the Vision.

    Just a few to start:
    1) The Vision camera does not have any AV out. (at least not that I've yet seen.)
    2) Our controller has no interface output (to attach to the ground station).

    Sorry, I don't mean to be a downer, just pointing out a few things.

    It will be well over a grand!!! This is for high end S800 and S1000 rigs. There's already another solution out there, and I believe it's around $1500 or more....
    If you're not flying a DSLR, this isn't for you.

    Are you saying this is not a DJI product?

    Not at all. It's kind of early to say what it will do, but those are all good observations. I suppose once it's officially released in a few weeks we'll see for sure!

    The Lightbridge app on the Google Play store is made by the same DJI that made the app for your Vision, so I'd say it's got everything to do with the DJI we all know...

    And here's some auto-translated specs from Chinese that I found on the internet:

    Agreed. That's the same information I'm seeing. Speculation is the price. I'm hearing around $1200, but that's in no way confirmed.

    "- Ground terminal controller supports two simultaneous input Lu Yao, were used as aircraft control and PTZ control, the sky receives transmitted to the master via DBUS;"


    Oh good, I was looking for a solution that would do....whatever that is.

    I *think* that's the point...combining video and control info in a single (and amplified) 2.4GHz signal. The ground end is equipped to connect to a controller as well as video displays, and the aircraft end has a D-bus connection in addition to the video connections.

    This looks like a product that adds advanced "Vision-like" features to DJI's big, expensive high-end drones that fly DSLR cameras. But in a very integrated way that doesn't require separate 2.4 and 5.8GHz systems - it adds HD video to those drones' existing 2.4Ghz control system. There's a detailed thread over at the other forum site:

    http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2091053

    The $200 price seems to be a typo or translation error. More like $1200-1500.

    It seems it has built-in OSD as well, so it can replace:

    Tx/Rx
    vTx/vRx
    OSD
    Antennae

    It wasnt listed. This is all speculation.
