16km UAV Video Downlink



IFLY designs, develops, manufactures, and markets high-end drone radio products for consumers and professionals. Its development team consists of industry-leading experts from first-class universities in China with several decades of experience in aerial robotics, Telecommunication and video processing technology. IFLY is committed to empower users with freedom and autonomy through drone video data long range communication technology, unleashing unlimited creativity in exploring unknow world and spatial data collection.


Early of 2019 IFLY launched the new model FNM-8416 which is a device that enables the controlling of a drone or robot as well as the transmitting of HD video and data while operating on air & ground missions. FNM-8416 is the perfect combination of an extended ruggedized-grade and a light and compact package.



Besides the video link, FNM-8416 provides a bidirectional data link between your drone and your Ground Control Station. This can be used to visualized telemetry data and/or control the drone. We support the MAVLink protocol as well as any generic protocol that interfaces via RS232/TTLT. Many gimbals can be controlled over a serial RS232/TTL interface.




By adopting Uplink QNSK/Downlink QNSK modulation, the FNS-8416 system provides you with 14-16km range. The frequency options are 806-826Mhz and 1428-1448Mhz. Both of them support NLOS signal transmission. The system is optimized for COFDM technology to provide best video quality and lowest latency. Its default bandwidth is 8Mhz and 0.6Watt power with Bi-Amp, 0.6watt Peak Power of each power amplifier to provide stable video stream without interrupting.



The video stream, command & control channel and meta data are fully end-to-end encrypted making it impossible for third parties to eavesdrop the transmission or interfere with it. Rather than reinventing the wheel, we rely on open and proven standards including Data gram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) and Secure Real-Time Protocol (SRTP) using AES256.


 Mini szie UAV Video Transmitter

For UAV and ground robotics application, the radio equipment’s size and weight are matters, FNM-8416 offers small form-factor transmitter with 57 x 55.5 x 15.7mm dimension and 65g weight for 1080p60 downlink.


Supporting robust link characteristics making FNM-8416 optimal for professional monitoring and control applications.

Whether it is aerial shooting or ground inspection, the FNM-8416 will support your application with solid HD downlink.
