It is a professional system with minimalist design prepared for all types of applications FPV with 500mW RF Power and -110dBm of sensitivity to work between 15-30Km (LOS) and with a maximum range of 100km.
Version V3 2020: We have improved the box structure of the XPAD2V3 Remote Controller, now it has integrated a accessory to place a 7″ FPV monitor or smart phone to visualize the video of the vehicle, it also has new functions with 2 switches of 3 positions and we have a new box to transport the entire system safely and very easy to have a quick installation.
Preconfigured for normative CE (Europe), FCC (America), ETA (India), 433Mhz or Custom.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
The new version for 2020 is better, more useful and safe to transport … and after all this we have also significantly improved the price of the product!
We have updated the product orientation, before the XPAD2 had many variants and one of the main objectives was the long range of the radio system with configurations to reach up to 100km.
Multiple variants in the configuration of the purchase made it difficult to choose the most suitable product.
Two years ago this made sense, now with products such as the ground control station D4 with ranges of 200km or more, the XPAD2 although it has the same radio and power system that the previous version does not need to achieve so much, we believe there are other priorities since Most jobs do not need as much range and this makes us more competitive in the price of the product, adapting it better to your need.
Now the XPAD2 is oriented to professional work with ranges of between 15 and 30Km with the integrated antennas, where portability, rapid assembly of the equipment and have the transmitter integrated with the video monitor in an environment where the pilot must move constantly, it’s the most important factor.
Of course if you change the antennas you can reach up to 100km but it will be much better and easier to choose any other product that is more prepared for larger jobs, after all it is a portable remote controller.
We have improved the box structure of the XPAD2V3 Remote Controller, simplifying it, removing the screws from the bottom, improving the weight and more…
DISPLAY WITH INFORMATION FOR THE PILOT
From the central blue LCD display you will see all the data of the system in real time.
It has several pre-configured screens that you can quickly change from the central encoder.
Depending on the selected screen you can view different information of the system as the current status of the RSSI radio “RF Coverage” in time real in dBm with which you have information of the current range of the XLRS system at all times.
You can see the buttons, switches, joysticks, battery level, frequency, RF channel, FHSS mode, Mode TX and much more information.
READY TO PLACE
FPV MONITOR OR SMART PHONE
Now you can place an 7″ FPV monitor to visualize the video, smart phone or tablet for Mission Planner software.
Is very easy to assemble and disassemble since it has two screws and it can be removed quickly with your fingers without tools.
You can store the monitor in the transport suitcase.
* Monitor is purchased separately (Optional).
16 PROGRAMMABLE BUTTONS AND SWITCHES
You can make various configurations to your liking.
Customize: 6 Buttons, 2 MicroJoysticks of 4 positions + Enter, 2 Encoders with push button and 2 news Switches of 3 positions.
Each object (Button, microjoystick, encoder) can be assigned to one or more RC channels of RXLRS receiver with different values.
You can assign several buttons to a RC channel and add different values, you can also have interlocked buttons to activate or deactivate any function (Lights, open landing gear…) or without interlocking (Take photos…).
The encoders have two operating modes:
Mode1: Assign encoder to an RC channel with value +-1000.
Mode 2: Assign encoder to an RC channel with 8 different values for example select up to 8 autopilot flight modes with a single encoder and more functions (Gimbal functions, video transmitter functions…): Special functions XLRS transmitters.
* All the configurations are made in the receiver from the PC using the DMDStudio software, so the configuration of the assignments, mixtures, etc, are in each receiver (Vehicle), you can have several vehicles with different functions and use the same XPAD2V3 remote controller.
HOT / FAST BUTTONS & LEDS
In addition to the configurable buttons, the XPAD2V3 remote controller has configured hot / fast buttons that make it easier and faster to activate or deactivate the most common functions.
– Activate / Deactivate Radio Control transmission.
– Activate / Deactivate Transparent Mavlink / Data Link sending from USB or Bluetooth.
– Dual Rate.
– TX mode settings (Mode1, Mode2, Mode3 or Mode4).
It has several LED indicators of different colors so that the user can see the status of some functions: Bluetooth, Radio Control, Link TX & RX, EXPO, DUAL…
COMPATIBILITY WITH AUTOPILOTS AND ROUTE SOFTWARE FOR AUTONOMOUS WORKS
The XLRS system is compatible with any autopilot that works with the Mavlink protocol: Pixhawk, Pixhawk Cube, APM, Mini Pix, etc.
It is also compatible with any route software with mavlink protocol such as: Mission Planner, QGround Control, etc.
The XPAD2V3 remote controller can be connected directly to the PC via USB or via Bluetooth, from the bluetooth you can connect to any android device and control the mission from a mobile, tablet…
The RXLRS receiver connects directly to the autopilot through the MODEM port and can also connect the SPPM (Serial PPM) output to send up to 16 servos to control them from the autopilot.
Advanced users: Since the XLRS system has a transparent data link, you can send and receive any data from PC to PC or from PC to (Uc, Arduino, Raspberrypi…) to obtain information about special sensors from your vehicle to the PC.
Is different from any standard RC transmitter, the XPAD2V3 has a minimalist design with few buttons but with many functionalities that allows the user to make all types of configurations without using a complex RC transmitter or with many buttons.
The D2 system has personality, the box has two ergonomic plastic that adapt correctly to the hands and has a 3mm aluminum cover painted with black epoxy this makes the system robust.
It also has a 3.7V 2400mAh battery which offers a duration of approximately 6 hours, it can be charged by USB using a PC or 1A standard mobile charger.
The system uses AES 128 encrytion, if encryption is enabled the radio system uses it in all data packets regardless of type.
The Radio Control information and the data of the radiomodem (Data Link Transparent) or Mavlink Telemetry are encrypted using this algorithm.
CONTROL THE VIDEO SYSTEM FUNCTIONS FROM XPAD2V3
Unlike other RC transmitters, the XLRS system can control the functions of the video system (XVID3) at the time, you can assign any button to the functions of the video transmitter.
For example, you can change:
– TX video channel.
– Select video camera.
– Change brightness level.
– Change volume level.
– Change OSD page.
– And other functions…
Radio Control Receiver RXLRS
Professional Receiver with maximum range of 200Km or more depending on XLRS system, antennas and installation.
RC Channels, you can control up to 16 servos distributed between 8 physical PPM outputs and 1 SPPM(Serial PPM) output configurable of 8 to 16 servos to connect to a autopilot or a channel expander, you can get more RC channels by adding more RXLRS receivers or channel extender in parallel.
Redundant receiver, if you using a second RXLRS receiver, will serve to increase the safety, quality and effective reach of the radio system. It will also expand the MIXer as it has independent mixes and control of 16 additional servos adding 32 servos in total. Remember that XLRS isn’t limited to traditional RC channels, the number of servos in the system isn’t limited, you can use 32, 64 or more servos if you need it.
MODEM port to send and receive transparent Data Link or Mavlink telemetry, configurable of 38.4kb to 100kb.
SBUS connection, connects to the SPPM output (can be in parallel with the SPPM input of the autopilot) to an standar module SBUS-PPM-PWM converter.
New suitcase with IP67 certificate, waterproof and strong made of ABS, it offers high resistance and durability against shocks and impacts to transported devices.
Thanks to the adaptable foam of EPP, that is a high resilience material that helps absorb pressure and vibrations, the products is fully protected and motionless.
It has an extendable handle for facilitate transport.
The inside of the suitcase is carefully designed for your XLRS, with foam fillings with which your system will fit perfectly and be protected from impacts. Its large capacity can store the XPAD2V3 remote controller, RXLRS receiver, FPV 7″ monitor, antennas, charger, lanyard and other small components.
