Frsky has released second version of their tiny whoop – Apus MQ60 V2. What has been changed? This is going to be the most booring news post – FrSky hasn’t upgraded a thing on this new Apus MQ60 V2! Look at the specifications – they are exactly the same as for APUS MQ60 V1 . Well, actually, they do have changed something – changed the 4-bladed props to 3-bladed and updated the VTX firmware to disabled some of the frequencies to comply the FCC regulations. Last year the FCC has imposed a $180,000 civil penalty on GetFTP (Lumenier Holdco LLC) for selling the non complient video transmitting devices. Some of them were transmitting on the frequencies that fell outside the permissible amateur bands. Most probably FrSky has discontinued the V1 and made a new V2 version just to comply theese regulations.
Also motors were changed to 19000KV ones. FrSky has changed the motor supplier (Thanks Joe, for the reminder).
Here is the VTX frequencies list for APUS MQ60 V1:
