Back to Shool Fun Fly and Drone Race

July 10th. 2017: I know for a fact that many people have waited a long time for this product to show up. The Immersion 350mW Vortex VTX modules were discontinued sometimes in December last year, and the promised new Tramp RX modules were in development and testing till it finally got released and shipped, so you can purchase it now from your favorite retailers. The Tramp VTX module for the Vortex 250, 275 and 285 features a switchable power  option, you can change from 2mW, 25mW, 200mW, 250mW to 600mW output power through your Vortex OSD – or and get this – through the Wand for Tramps. The modules arrive with a TND tag in the package, you can install this behind a plastic surface (do not install it behind a carbon fibre plate!) and you can change power and frequencies in a matter of seconds with the Wand.

You can find the Tramp Vortex module and the Wand below, by clicking on the image you can purchase them directly from our website:

June 23rd, 2017: It seems that Canadian recreational drone fliers and racers are getting a little break from the very strict Interim Order after all. While it has not yet been posted on the TC website, some of the media actually posted the following: http://www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/2017/2017-06-24/pdf/g1-15125.pdf which is a little relief from the previous very strict rules. The highlight in changes are:

  • (3) No person shall operate a model aircraft having a total weight of more 250 g (0.55 pounds) but not more than 1 kg (2.2 pounds) at a lateral distance of less 100 feet (30 m) from vehicles, vessels or the public, including spectators, bystanders or any person not associated with the operation of the aircraft.
  • (5) No person shall operate a model aircraft:
    • (a) within 3 nautical miles (5.5 km) of the centre of an aerodrome, except a heliport or an aerodrome that is used exclusively by helicopters;
      (b) within 1 nautical mile (1.8 km) of a heliport or an aerodrome that is used exclusively by helicopters; or
      (c) inside an aerodrome control zone.

This is a positive change, let’s go with it!

June 10th, 2017: ImmersionRC issued a note about the latest batch of the Tramp VTx’s. Some of these were released with a sub-standard (read “fake”) LDO from the third party Chinese component supplier. This issue did not come out during QC, because some more extensive load testing had to be done to reveal this problem. If you are using a Tramp purchased between May 15th and June 5th, and noticing video quality issues over grey areas of your screen – meaning interference lines or diagonal rolling lines – only over grey colored areas – then your Tramp might be affected by this issue. If you purchased your Tramp from us, we will gladly replace the sub-standard LDO on your tramp for the real deal, you just have to bring it in and we can do it on spot, it takes about 5-10 minutes. For all those who are looking to purchase new Tramps, please note that NGHobbies.com is the only store in the world at the moment who has the Tramps with the correct LDO’s in stock. All other stores will need to send their existing stock back to the factory for replacement. Click on the image below to purchase:
