FPV Racing Glossary

RADIO
This is another name for the hand-held radio control transmitter a pilot uses to control the flight path of an FPV racer.

FRAME
The foundation of an FPV racer.
Its where you mount the camera, motors and other FPV electronics.
Racing frames are typically identified by size (i.e. 220mm)

FLIGHT CONTROLLER
The brain of an FPV racer.
Its sensors, firmware and processor(s) govern the flight path of the racer and translate the radio inputs.
It connects to the receiver, power distribution board and motor ESCs.

RADIO CONTROL TRANSMITTERS
The radio control transmitter is what the pilot uses to control the flight path of an FPV racer.
Spektrumô radio control transmitters use exclusive 2.4GHz technology that provides superb control response
and interference protection, especially in the - noisy- signal environment of an FPV race.

RADIO CONTROL TRANSMITTERS Video Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qrvt6YG01ro

POWER DISTRIBUTION BOARD
Typically has a 3S-4S battery input.
Safely distributes power to all of the on-board electronics.

VIDEO TRANSMITTER
Commonly referred to as a VTX, this connects to an FPV camera and sends video signals to the pilots headset or monitor.
Almost all video transmitters use a 5.8GHz signal and are compatible with the most popular headsets and monitors

FPV Cameras and Video Transmitters
These go on an FPV racer and feed live video to the pilots headset or monitor.
This video walks you through the basics of camera/transmitter technology like signal output and range, field of view and more.

RECEIVER
Receives control inputs from the pilots radio and sends them to the flight controller.
Most FPV racing receivers are "serial" receivers that send all information to the flight controller over a single connector.

FPV ANTENNAS
FPV video transmitters and headsets require specialized antennas to ensure maximum signal range and security.
In this video our expert describes the different types of antennas and which are best for specific equipment or racing conditions.

ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROLLER
FPV racers have separate ESCs for each motor (usually 4).
They are connected to the flight controller which individually adjusts the speed of each motor to execute pilot commands and stabilize the racer in flight.

HEADSET (GOGGLES)
The most common way racing pilots view FPV video from their on-board camera and video transmitter.
They are worn like googles and have video displays for each eye.
FPV headsets are the most common way pilots view FPV video from their racers on-board camera and video transmitter.
They are worn like googles and have video displays for each eye.
This video will help you choose the type of headset thats right for you.

RACEBAND
A special 5.8GHz video band used by FPV racers for competition.
It provides more space between video transmitter frequencies so as many as 6 to 8 pilots can race at once without interference.

MONITOR
A stand-alone display screen for viewing FPV video.
Frequently cheaper than a headset, it makes it easier for pilots to maintain visual contact with their aircraft and let bystanders see what they see.

CLEANFLIGHT
The most popular flight controller software on the market.
Using the Cleanflight programming interface, pilots can fine tune the flight characteristics of their model with a PC or mobile device.

TRANSPONDER
A microchip attached to an FPV quadcopter that uses either Radio-frequency identification (RFID) or Infrared (IR) transmission to record lap times.
