Since its release Herelink has become one of the most accessible and simplest ways of integrating a wireless digital video & remote controller ground station into your drone or UAS system. Designed for hobby, professional and system integrators Herelink features long range low latency wireless HD video with upto 20km range and supports Mavlink communication for both Ardupilot and PX4 flight software.



Herelink has a built-in remote controller, an 5.4 1080P Android based smart device with both Solex TX and QGC open source software installed that allows for advance mission planning. The Air unit supports multiple camera options with dual 720P/1080P HDMI inputs, Mavlink telemetry and Sbus control signal. UAS Manufactures and system integrators can also take advantage of the built in S1 SOC for custom applications as well as dedicated OEM support features.


This week Cubepilot have announced that upcoming firmware will add the ability for 2 Herelink controllers to communicate with one air unit for dual operator missions and a new dual live video streaming feature. Alongside this Cubepilot added that Herelink has a new lower price of $699.

Herlink remains one of the best value fully integrated ground station systems on the market that supports both Ardupilot and PX4. Being part of the Cubepilot ecosystem alongside the Cube Orange Autopilot means Herelink benefits from dedicated manufacture support forums and an active community following.
