1.3GHz A/V Receiver with Comtech Tuner (1280MHz Compatible)

1.3GHz A/V Receiver with Comtech Tuner (1280MHz Compatible)
NOTICE: This FPV vRx is the highly prized 1280MHz "Tan receiver" from Racewood. It's known for its resistance to nearby UHF transmitters and has a reputation for reliable operation. Unfortunately Racewood ceased operations and our inventory is running low. Get yours before they are gone!

This version is the 4-CH "1280MHz" model. Need "1258MHz" instead? Look here: Click me.

This 1.3GHz wireless A/V (audio/video) receiver is compatible with our TX13-300 and TX1280-080 A/V transmitters. This special model has the highly respected Comtech baseband tuner module in it. The Comtech module is renown for its high quality construction and consistent RF performance.

RCA Cables Included Your purchase includes a high quality RCA A/V cable. Length is approximately 55-inches (1.4 meters).

The receiver requires a common 2.1mm barrel type DC power cord (available separately). To review the plug accessories please click here.

A simple monopole whip antenna is included for short range applications. The optional #ANTHWD-1200 half-wave dipole upgrade is a popular antenna choice for medium range applications and it can be purchased with the receiver at additional cost. Longer range is possible with a +8dBi tuned Patch antenna (not included). To see other 1.2 - 1.3GHz antennas we carry please click here.

The power source is not included. It must be 12VDC (10%). Exceeding this voltage, or reversing the power connections, WILL cause permanent damage and void the warranty. AC mains powered installations must use a voltage regulated supply (available separately) and should not use standard unregulated types. For portable use we recommend a high capacity 3-cell (3S / 11.1V) lithium polymer LiPO pack such as our #LB3CT-1800T with the #CORD-UB2 adapter.

Important note: The DC input connector is a 2.1mm barrel style connector that is center (+) positive. Reversed voltages will damage the receiver..
