Delta 5 Race Timer
Multi-node radio frequency race timing system for FPV drone racing. Uses the 5.8Ghz video signals already being broadcast by each drones to trigger a lap timer; no additional equipment is required on the drone.
Each receiver node is tuned to the video frequency that a drone is broadcasting on and then connected to a raspberry pi. By default, up to eight racing drones can be tracked in a race.
- The system hosts its own web server which is used to control the system, no additional software is needed, any device with a web browser can connect
- Automatic calibration; the system sets triggers at the start of each race
- Manage pilot names, assign them to heats, and after each race save the results to a local database
- Supports the standard 40 FPV video channels
