The AKK New Era is probably the first 5.8G VTX that can be equipped with two antennas. AKK packs its ‘New Era’ FPV transmitter with an LHCP and an RHCP antenna. The VTX can be used in 20x20mm flight stacks. Without antennas, it weighs less than 6 grams.
AKK New Era features adjustable broadcast power. You can toggle between 25mW, 50mW, 200mW, and 400mW through the onboard control button or remotely via SmartAudio. The VTX board has 3 status LEDs (Blue for Power, Red for Band, and Green for Channel).
From left to right it has the following soldering pads:
- SmartAudio (to flight controller);
- Video (camera video out);
- GND (Camera ground);
- 5V out (camera power);
- 7-30V in (Main power supply);
- GND (Power ground).
