If many of you need 12V for the cam and for the video transmitter then we would make a design for a clean 12V PSU. But I need a minimum of about ten orders, otherwise it makes no sense for us economically to do it right. Hope you can understand this

Any chance you guys would sell individual components? I.e. your tuned antennas, motor mounts, wiring harnesses? I'm getting a zephyr soon and would be interested in some TBS parts.

Drednox,

Yes, you can get certain individual parts from us. We will also add them to our web store soon. In case they're not up yet you can use our contact form to get in touch with us (trappy is answering the mails usually within 1h) and we'll get you sorted. Please note the wiring harness is made especially for EzOSD, EzUHF, lawmate and DX201, so it wouldn't make sense for us to make that one for you if you use other equipment.

Cheers,

RiSCyD

Hi,

this sounds very interesting.

Could you just give us a litte more details regarding the features of the
- Team BlackSheep custom filtered powersupply in connection with the Team BlackSheep RTF low noise wire harness?

I am using a 12v camera on a 5v full EZSystem (EZOSD/EZUHF). Currently I use a simple 5v-to-12v step up.

Thx and Cheers,
Stefan

RisCyd - Any thoughts on improving the video system with circularly polarized antennas? Since the plane must bank to turn, CP might be a huge benefit. It also improves video quality.

Another question: Are these fiberglassed or laminating film covered? What kind of batteries can this thing hold?

Hi Alex,

Yes, trappy has wrote to you about that already. Initially we want to include 2 or maybe 3 antennas in the kit. Until we fully tested and understand your antenna designs, we will recommend the linear ones, with their limitations. Our antenna and video systems are heavily tuned so the first time polarization becomes an issue is maybe 2 miles out.

The planes are shipped in 2 halves, we also supply riteweave (glass) and laminating film. The offical way to do it will be 3-4 strips of riteweave and then laminate, but each customer can decide for himself on this.

Batteries are required to be 3300mAh 4S nano-tech x2 (for 6.6Ah in total). The equipment placement is optimized for batteries of this size and weight so we recommend to customers not to use anything else.

brosius85, we do have stock but we are not an FPV store. we do not sell the components individually which are for sale at FPV shops (even though technically they are not for sale there as they are out of stock hehe)

Brian, I think when people refer to the wire harness they actually want the 12V PSU. the wire harness we have works best with our PSU and EzUHF, EzOSD and DX201 inside the Zephyr. Making harnesses that work in all planes is simply not possible. However, our PSU will make it very easy to make your own harness. It will be for sale once we get the Zephyrs shipped.
