New Product
Velocity-RC GPS Black Box V3

Many here have used the V1 and V2 GPS Loggers from Velocity-RC for some time, Velocity-RC is now poised to release the V3. Aside from some new fancy graphics, it appears and functions just like the original with the added function of producing up to five .KML files onboard for viewing your tracks on programs like Google Earth. The track is stored as a series of points which can be viewed independently with time, speed and altitude.

While you can still view the max speed, distance, time and average speed on the screen of the unit itself, the series of points recorded provides a valuable tool in determining your model's performance:
  • Having a series of data points will help you eliminate any erroneous maximum speed values (you'll be able to see a "jump" in position)
  • You can compare upwind and downwind speeds to determine the actual maximum airspeed of the model.
  • You can playback your flight in Google Earth
Like the previous versions, the GPS Black Box plugs right into a free slot on your receiver (the connector on the photo is for testing on the prototype only). To retrieve the .KML files the unit connects via USB to your computer which sees it as a mass storage device.

I've tested this unit for Velocity and the speed has been consistently accurate (compared with a calibrated vehicle speedo and the track over the ground).

Stay tuned for pricing and availability!

For what it is worth....

I love my V..2. Gets used in everything, including the small-ish 64mm's. Always works, and results are never outrageous or absurd. Even checked against the EagleTree ASI shows comparable results on windless days.

These are great. Handy as a third hand

If I order from your website, from which country the shipping will be done?
Your eBay reseller is localized in Singapore, where is localized your website?
Since I'm living in France it is important in order to avoid custom fees.


And what is the size of the product? It is not specified on your website.

Salut LapinFou!

The website and the eBay partner both ship from our Singapore warehouse. The item quite small and light, check out the V2 in this video:

Salut !


Thanks for the information about shipping origin.
Concerning the size, I know it is small. However the exact dimension and weight of the product would be a very nice information. Specially for small airplane model...
