Many China based FPV and/or RC manufacturers are pushing into the western markets at the moment. I got contacted by AKK Technology if I would like to test some of their brand new FPV gear. Of course, I couldn’t turn down this offer. The following article looks at two All-in-One FPV Camera / VTX units with 25 mW output power.

For the last few years the development of new FPV gear has almost been hard to keep track off. As governments try to create laws for an always increasing amount of privately used multicopters, weight restrictions have become a important measure to categorize „drones“. In Germany we now have weight classes from 0 to < 250 g, up to 2 kg, up to 5 kg and > 5 kg to 25 AUW. While the latter require registration and some even special drone pilot license like proof, the lightest class below 250 g is still free to be flown without any registration (but, of course, within the general restrictions of aviation law). Luckily the FPV racing community still follows a down sizing trend and with more and more brushless micro racers coming to the market there also is an increasing need for capable micro, all-in-one (AIO) FPV camera units with integrated VTX. AKK Technology sent over two different AIO FPV camera units with a maximum RF output of 25 mW.

he AKK X2 is a 40-channel FPV video transmitter that costs just $22 shipped. Unlike the earlier all-in-one A3 which I reviewed earlier, the X2 does not come with a pre-installed antenna or camera. With that said, the X2 is more of an FPV transmitter (Tx) that is more suited to those who want to use their own choice of antenna and camera.

Ever since SmartAudio came around, I’ve started wondering how I ever managed to fly without it.

In case you are not aware, SmartAudio is a communication protocol between your flight controller and your video transmitter. Through SmartAudio, your flight controller can change settings on your video transmitter: such as the output power, band, or channel.

You can access this option to change either through a telemetry enabled receiver, or with the Betaflight OSD. The OSD is a little inconvenient to change the channel, since you would lose the video feed as soon as you saved the new channel, but it sure beats fiddling around with dip switches or pressing and holding buttons!

SmartAudio used to only be available on TBS video transmitters, but it’s now available on other transmitters too.

A company called AKK Tek approached me if I would check out their SmartAudio transmitter, and I obliged.

40 channels
Design and first impressions
At a first glance, the AKK Tek X2P is quite similar to the TBS Unify – it has the same form factor, with a small body and a pigtail. I used to dislike the idea of pigtails but certain frame designs like the Armattan Chameleon are actually designed around pigtails, so I guess I can live with them.

The version I received has an SMA pigtail – I...Continue Reading

Since the first FPV drones, VTXs evolved a lot. They became smaller and more powerful. In addition to the compact size and up to 800mW broadcast power, the AKK X2 comes with Smart Audio. This means that you can configure the AKK X2 remotely via your transmitter.

Currently, there are two approaches supported by BetaFlight OSD to control the VTX, Smart Audio and Tramp Telemetry. Even if the technical details of each protocol are different, they do approximately the same thing in a nutshell.
AKK announced the X2 VTX in 3 versions. According to the antenna connector type, you can opt for RP-SMA Female or MMCX. Third version (aka X2P) comes with pre-soldered pigtail antenna cable.

For almost a year now, the ImmersionRC Tramp HV has been our video transmitter of choice for use in miniquads. It has all the features you generally want—a pigtail for easy antenna placement, adjustable power levels and a great channel selection. I think its most important feature over VTXs of yesteryear is serial communication with the FC (generally called “smart audio”). This allows you to change your channel and VTX power through your OSD using your controller. No more fiddling with buttons, accidentally knocking fellow pilots out of the sky in the process. SmartAudio has become the hallmark of high-end VTXs. With the AKK X2P, that may be about to change—
AKK X2P Introduction

The bare AKK X2P weighed in at 8.2g

Chinese manufacturer AKK has a surprisingly robust lineup of quadcopter electronics—including flight controllers, FPV cameras, and of course 5.8GHz video receivers and transmitters. I was drawn to their site by the AKK X2P 5.8GHz video transmitter, which is a fully featured VTX:

$18.99 from AKK’s website (international) or $22.99 shipped from Amazon Prime
Supports all traditional FPV video bands including Race Band
Pigtail SMA female connector
Two other connector options available: board mount SMA and MMCX
Adjustable power output from 25mW to 800mW
7–24V power input support
SmartAudio support, allowing channel adjustment from OSD

AKK (or AKK Technology) is the new chineese company that is now becomming more and more known in the RC hobby. It has designed and released some really interesting FPV products and they are releasing new ones at surprisingly frequent base. The main products are FPV components (AIO cameras, VTX). I had an opportunity to test and review one of their video transmitters – X2P VTX.

X2P is standart sized VTX. It has switchable output power setting of 25mW/200mW/500mW and 800mW. Selectable 40 channels that can be changed with push button.

VTX has the microphone on board, so you can enjoy the sound of the motors if you use audio feed on your FPV goggles. It also adds some real sound in the DVR recordings instead of the dead silence in FPV flights.

VTX pinout is SmartAudio, 5V out for FPV camera, Ground, Video input from camera, Ground and 7-24V power input.

Connector is JST-GH. It has locking tab that secures the connection and prevents from the accidental disconnection. This type of the connector is used in TBS Unify VTX.

l y a quelques temps déjà, AKK nous a envoyé quelques vTx à tester. Aujourd’hui je vais prendre une peu de temps pour vous parler du modèle AKK FX2. Il s’agit d’un émetteur vidéo stackable (au format 30 x 30 mm) que j’ai installé dans mon ImpulseRC Alien 5′ pour remplacer mon bon vieux FX800T. Ce dernier fonctionne encore très bien, mais il émet « moins fort » et n’est surtout pas contrôlable via le contrôleur de vol.

Les caractéristiques techniques de l’AKK FX2
Comme je le disais, le FX2 est un vTx empilable. Il faut donc un peu de place dans son quad pour l’installer. Si ça vous pose problème, sachez qu’il existe une version au format 20 x 20 mm ou tout simplement non stackable.

De part sa taille, il dissipe très bien la chaleur et peut émettre jusqu’à une puissance de 800mW (en France la puissance d’émission autorisée est limitée à 25 mW pour rappel). Avec une telle puissance, le constructeur annonce une portée pouvant atteindre 5 km avec une bonne antenne. Cet émetteur semble donc adapté à la mode du long range. Les autres paliers d’émission sont 25, 200 et 500 mW. Malheureusement nous n’avons pas de wattmètre pour les vérifier.

Pas besoin de régulateur pour alimenter ce vTx, il accepte jusqu’à 24V en entrée pour une tension minimale d’alimentation de 7V. Pour mon test, je l’ai branché sur la PDB de mon Alien qui n’est ni régulée ni filtrée.

Le FX2 embarque quant à lui un filtre LC pour alimenter une caméra en 5V (0,3A max, exit donc la RunCam Split)....Continue Reading

FX3 on Amazon:

When it comes to FPV flights, besides the quality of the camera and goggles, the performance of the video transmitter (VTX) is also very important. Lately, VTXs evolved a lot. AKK FX3 comes with advanced features like SmartAudio and adjustable broadcast power.

For those who are new in the field, a video transmitter (VTX) it’s a crucial part of a FPV drone. It transmits the video signal from FPV camera to a remote video receiver, which can then display it on a FPV monitor. The most common frequency for FPV is 5.8Ghz. In order to allow the usage of multiple VTXs in a limited space (such as during a drone race) the frequency range is divided into individual channels. Most of the 5.8G video transmitters feature at least 40 channels.
According to the transmission power you can find VTX modules from 10mW up to 5W. While proximity FPV park flying requires less power (25mw is just good for most cases) long range FPV flights (1 – 10Km) requires high TX power. Output power can be fixed or switchable between multiple values like in the case of AKK FX3.

AKK FX3 review with pros and cons
Disclosure: I received this AKK FX3 5.8 ghz video transmitter as part of a product review collaboration with AKK. Although the VTX was offered free of charge, all opinions in this review are my own.

Package arrived 4 weeks after we agreed on...Continue Reading
