Features
30KM Long Range

Applied with lately developed technologies, such as super long distance, self-adaptive bandwidth, interference avoidance frequency hopping, and two-way telemetry, equipped with industry-level RF hardware which is capable to counter high power electromagnetic interference, FM30 radio moduleís maximum control distance can reach up to 30 kilometers and more, which can effectively guarantee the low-altitude manipulating stability crossing among trees, through racing panels, in garage and other concrete buildings with many obstacles, shelters, and heavy interference.


Bluetooth/Telemetry Configuration

FM30 comes with built-in Bluetooth function and supports Mavlink protocol, which makes it possible for users to monitor real-time flight status and do configuration through the ground control software.
*FM30 supports popular GCS such as QGroundControl, Speedy Bee, Mission Planner, Fish Drone, etc.
Receiver OTA Wireless Upgrading, Wireless Binding
The way of upgrading receiver firmware wirelessly let users get rid of complex wire connection.
Through a combination of manipulation, receiver actively enters binding mode without disassembling your drone/aircraft.

RSSI Signal Telemetry
FM30 supports RSSI output in S.Bus mode, providing real-time status information as reference for long-range flight.

2.4 GHz ISM Frequency Band
FM30 uses 2.4 GHz band, which is legal to use in any countries. Under 2.4 GHz and working with Fast Hopping technology, FM30ís transmission speed is fast and stable.

Great to see alternatives with Semtech chips. I'm currently testing Tracer but not very happy with range. Any chance to buy a prototype for testing purposes?

Interesting , looking for something with more range (and not interested in Frsky ) might grab one of these for the empty external bay in my TX18. As with the other options reliability in range and telemetry is important.

SIYI FM30 Radio Module will get CE and FCC certified in 45 to 60 days.

Do we also have to pass ISED for Canada market after passing FCC? Please advice.

Hi, im interested in testing and making a review, the RC Relay is interesting.

When you mean rc relay you mean a middle transmitter to extend the range in difficult areas right?

You only need to file the ISED paperwork when filing FCC, ISED will accept FCC testing if you file both ISED and FCC at the same time.

If you donít file ISED at the same time as FCC, they will require separate testing

What baud rate is mavlink transmitted at? 19.2K, 38k, or 56k? Does your Receiver module transmit back at 23dbm? What range does the mavlink telemetry link back have? It is impressive for $39.

Pretty impressive distance on the video. Might make Crossfire and Dragonlink unnecessary for most flights. I guess the difference might be in any interference of 2.4Ghz compared with 900 and 433Mhz.

Hi Marc,

The baud rate to Mavlink are 57600 and 115200.
Both FR Receiver and FR Mini Receiver transmit back at 23 dBm.
The range of Radio, Telemetry, and Datalink are the same. I think we can say 40+ km at this moment.

Hope my answers are helpful for you.

Best regards,
Frank
