Are you looking to buy Shark Byte 2 Digital FPV System in Australia?

Introducing the new Shark Byte 2 Digital HD system from Fat Shark. Shark Byte 2 delivers near-zero visible latency High Definition 720p 60fps video on your Fat Shark HDO's, HD3's and more. This digital HD system operates over the popular 5.8GHz frequencies for FPV, allowing you to use your favorite 5.8 antennas like the Lumenier AXII antennas on both the TX side and RX side.

Shark Byte has a brand new compact goggle-mounted module with integrated DVR and directional antenna. While mounted, the Fat Shark goggle can be seamlessly switched between digital and analog. Goggles can be even stored in their case without removing the digital module!

The goggle and module can both be powered by an existing Fat Shark battery* (with included balance lead adapter). For longer flight days, the system includes an XT-60 terminated adapter with a regulator to supply 8.4V to goggles and modules from standard 3S or 4S battery packs.

Image clarity has been improved with a new fully digital MIPI camera developed by RunCam; the RunCam Racer HD. The small 14x14mm footprint camera is suitable for the smallest of builds and comes with an adapter to facilitate mounting to larger frames. The camera has an OSD for custom tuning that can be navigated either by a button board or the radio control sticks (requires BetaFlight).

The transmitter size has been reduced and now uses standard 20x20 mounting holes. Power has been upped to 500mW and can be initiated in a standby mode that bumps to full power only when the quad is armed. The transmitter and quad PID settings can be navigated with radio sticks via an OSD or programmed using an external button board.

*The Fat Shark goggle battery option results in reduced operating times. Please check the power level of your goggle battery before every flying session and never begin flying with a low goggle battery.

Already have a quad setup for traditional analog FPV but want to try digital HD instead? Fat Shark makes it easier than ever with the Shark Byte 2 system utilizing the common 30.5x30.5 mounting pattern for the transmitter unit. This means you can just add it above your stack for a clean install which takes up about the same amount of room as an analog video transmitter.

The Shark Byte 2 system also comes with a high definition LCD screen with built-in digital HD receivers. The HDMI output allows you to pump the digital feed directly to your goggles for an immersive experience, while also acting as a viewing monitor for you or your friends. Now your buddies can also see the live feed and go along for the ride!
