This is a relatively new vtx that is released so lets open it up and see what we have inside. So it takes an mmcx antenna. We have just a standard antenna included, plus they give you an sma, 2 mmcx at a 90 degree angle, so thats, nice, the 90 degree angle ones. I think work best for these types of vtxs, so its nice, that they include one. We have the power cable, a bunch of stickers manual and the vtx. This vtx has a 30×30 mounting pattern, has a metal cover on it feels pretty solid feels just like a rush tank ultimate. It weighs 7 grams thats without the antenna or the wire, its capable of pit mode 25, milliwatts, 200 milliwatts, 400 milliwatts and 800 milliwatts. So on the bottom you have two buttons and these control the band and power. And then this one controls the channel, and you also have a little set of leds right in here, and these are red, blue and green, and those are going to help you select the band power and channel that you want to use. You can use the irc protocol on this vtx so that you can configure all those settings in betaflight or in the osd in your goggles over on this side, we have where the plug goes and in addition to having the plug, they also give you little tiny Pads right here, where you can actually just solder on a wire in case you didnt, want to use the plug.

I dont know why you wouldnt want to use a plug, but these are there in case you want to solder to it and on the back side, they actually list what each pad is for thats on the front right here. But if something were to happen to this sticker, you wouldnt have any labeling to what these pads are. So you have it. On the other side, this yellow wire is going to go to the flight controller on the video input. Pin this one right here and this one right underneath it is ground and 5 volts. You can use this to power. Your camera im not going to use these two. This rx wire right here is going to connect to the tx pad on our flight controller and thats, going to give us control over the settings in betaflight and then right here is the power for the vtx. So you have ground and then you have the input which is red and thats 6 to 36 volts. So you can pretty much hook this up to any battery pad um, you wont be able to hook it up to a 5 volt pad. Obviously, you want it within 6 to 36 volts, so youd probably be able to find a 9 volt pad and just hook it up to that so im going to go, get this hooked up in my drone and well do a quick little setup and beta flight And then well take it out and test it.

So this is the vtx that was on this drone uh before and i actually dont have to solder on a new plug. So if youre using a rush tank, you can actually just unplug this and you should be able to plug it right into this. Vtx and youll be good. So if you have a rush tank already hooked up, you dont even have to do any soldering. You can just plug it right in there, so thats, pretty cool. The only thing im gon na have to change in betaflight is this: has smart audio 2.0, whereas this is running irc, so im just going to have to change the vtx protocol? Alright, so we have betaflight launched im going to plug in my drone, and first thing were going to do is were going to change this, so, as you can see here, i have my receiver set up on uart 2 and then i have the vtx setup on Uart3, so the rush tank that i originally had on this drone was running tbs, smart audio, this vtx uses so were going to select irc and then hit save reboot. Now what we can do is go under the video transmitter tab and were going to load our vtx table from clipboard. So what were going to do is go to this site on github, and this has all the vtx tables for irc. Smart, audio, 2.0, 1.0. Rtc. Im not really sure what that is, but for this vtx were using irc.

Usa click. This itll bring you to this page and then basically just select everything copy well go back to betaflight and just hit load from clipboard, and it should just populate all these numbers. Now were going to do is this vtx has pit mode 25, 400 and 800 so im going to change these to match those values im going to just change this 100 to 200 same with this one ill change this to 4.! Well, change this to eight, and since we dont have a fifth power level, im gon na just click this arrow and bring it down to four there we go hit, save obviously the vtx isnt on right now, so its not going to recognize it right here, but As soon as i plug a battery in it should recognize it and it should show device ready. Yes, and then we can configure the settings on here so im going to disconnect my drone and plug a battery in Music and now ill reconnect. The drone to betaflight and when we go to the video transmitter tab device ready. Yes, so that tells you that its connected – and you can now configure all the settings right through here or on your goggles. So im gon na set this to raise band 3 and im going to set the power to 25. all right. So this is pretty much all set. Um just make sure you save all your settings and now im going to just take it out for a test.

Music, Music do Music, Music, all right, so final thoughts on the eachine nano vtx. For some reason i was getting some weird static with 800 milliwatts and i actually had it cut out completely at some points. I crashed a couple times and the vtx still works. Fine. Make sure, though, that when you do have it on 800 milliwatts, you dont, let it sit for too long, because the vtx does get hot as long as youre flying the air will cool it down and well keep it from overheating. I personally love the 30 by 30 metal vtxs, like this. Like i said, the rush tank ultimate is my go to, and i think that this is going to be a great option for if this ever fails, it has the same plug. It has the same output power, its the same size and its cheaper than the rush tank, so it makes for a great backup for this drone.
