DJI Lightbridge Use
Posted on December 13 2015
The launch of the DJI Lightbridge signals the increased (relative) affordability of HD transmitters. Featuring full HD 1080p 30FPS video streaming from your drone to your eyeballs in real time thanks to FPV, this drone accessory is pretty nifty.
Let’s take a deeper look at the DJI Lightbridge:
The aforementioned video streaming allows you to get that highly-coveted bird’s-eye view of what your drone sees. And while many drones feature such technology, FPV has traditionally included lots of noise interference and low-resolution videos, resulting in watching footage that looks like “a 1970s TV signal.” The DJI Lightbridge eliminates these and similar issues.
Skim ocean water, follow beautiful hiking paths, capture amazing aerial shots of the latest family barbecue. It’s all possible with the DJI Lightbridge, and you won’t even break a sweat.
Live Flight Data
Obtaining live flight data with your DJI Lightbridge uses a straightforward process. The drone accessory easily handles its control link to provide you with data such as vertical and horizontal speed, as well as altitude. Additional live flight data provided by this advanced drone accessory includes signal strength, flight battery voltage, and GPS heading.
The DJI Inspire 1 Connection
The Lightbridge is “an HD video and communication system that takes video transmitters, OSD’s, and control signals and puts it all into one system,” according to reviewers at My First Drone. DJI advertises their DJI Inspire 1 as featuring Lightbridge technology, which refers to the quadcopter’s all-in-one communication system capable of streaming HD video. A controller for the Inspire 1 is subsequently about $600.
Better FPV, Better Footage
A drone accessory designed to provide the best FPV, it’s hard to argue with the power of the DJI Lightbridge. It features a range of accessories as well for additional costs, including ground system antennas, remote controller cables, and ground system holders.
