TRAIN AND COMPETE
Drone Racing is about being the fastest and speed comes with training and competing. Timing systems are expensive, hard to set up and often unreliable. For the first time ever, the TBS RaceTracker in partnership with Drone Squad solves all those problems. Now FPV Pilots around the world can effortlessly measure their performance for training and competition.
With Universal Video RF sensing technology, it doesn't matter what FPV aircraft your are flying: Race Quad, Tiny Whoop or Wing, the TBS RaceTracker has you covered.
TBS will also offer a simple companion-app for the TBS RaceTracker that only does lap timing.
HOW IT WORKS
Just place the RaceTracker on the start gate, pair it to the app and go! There is nothing that needs to be added to your drone.
SMART & ACCURATE
The TBS RaceTracker is an innovation developed in partnership with german RF lap timing experts. Through intricate RF analysis it delivers transponderless milisecond accuracy lap times while ensuring compatibility amongst most video transmitters. The wide range of calibration features and default presets make sure that no lap time gets missed, ever! The bluetooth 4.0 (BLE) connection to your mobile device provides great range, the bright LED's on the RaceTracker allows your spotter to observe the status from far away. Thanks to a giant, 1S 3000mAh Li-Ion battery, the tracker can run for up to 6 hours and charges off a standard micro USB plug.
The included expansion port allows a host of extra features, to be added later. Firmware upgrades over the air through your smartphone app ensure that your RaceTracker is always up to date. It makes the TBS RaceTracker a safe investment into your FPV racing career, as it grows with you and only becomes more powerful over time!
COLOR + ANIMAL = AWESOMENESS!
Following the same formula as "BlackSheep", we have given each tracker a fully unique and individual Color + Animal nickname. This solution avoids confusion at the gates where we predict multiple trackers will be positioned in the near future :)

FPV Academy Review
Nice product at a nice price review by Christopher on 12/1/2016
This is a great piece of equipment. I would recommend it to anyone who is into racing. Most members in my local club are buying this device also.
I have actually had the most enjoyment using this with a Tiny Whoop.
Works with any quad that is equipped with a VTX
Nice companion app (Drone Squad)
Easy to use
Bluetooth range is a bit short **
Manual from team-blacksheep had incorrect steps for pairing
**The one I bought did come with an additional antenna that was meant to fix this issue. Still fits as a con since I have to do the repair on a brand new piece of equipment.
