TBS Tracer – Fast 2.4GHz Long Range system

Team BlackSheep has just released the 2.4GHz control system. The new Long Range, low latency control system, called TBS Tracer, uses the faster, wider bandwidth 2.4GHz frequency range (versus the TBS Crossfire 900MHz frequency). This allows to minimize the latency down to the 3ms (or 250Hz) and still having the telemetry link back to the radio. This makes the TBS Tracer the fastest radio link with telemetry enabled. Technically it is the same good old Crossfire, just working on the higher frequency. Thanks to the some new magic unicorn dust Long Range RF technology, developed by TBS(?), this fast 2.4GHz link still has got a plenty range – up to 25km and more.

Less latency, smaller antennas, ease of the configuration and great range makes it one of the best radio control systems in the market.

TBS TRACER – 2.4GHZ “CROSSFIRE” RADIO SYSTEM BULLETPOINTS

  • 250Hz: Fastest available radio and telemetry link
  • Brand new 2.4GHz technology not found in any other radio link
  • 3ms end to end latency
  • Crossfire engine for ultimate compatibility and functionality
  • “JR” and “LITE” form factor transmitters
  • Nano-sized receiver with antenna diversity
  • 15mi+/25km+ range
  • For drones, planes, helicopters, cars and boats

THE FASTEST RADIO LINK

In a race, microseconds count. Goggles down, thumbs up – are you ready for a two-way 250Hz radio link? End to end latency: basically zero (okay, 3ms!). Range: for days. Nothing comes close! We took the best from Crossfire and shrunk it down & sped it up.

NOT JUST FOR RACE AND “FREERANGE” PILOTS

A single operation mode satisfies all requirements. A spine-tingling 250Hz refresh rate. Plenty of penetration and range to outperform even the most serious video link. Full telemetry capability is standard, without any range degradation! Thanks to Crossfire pedigree, drone pilots, traditional R/C pilots and everyone in between can instantly tap into the familiar lineup of compatible software, devices, remotes and mounting boards.

EASE OF USE

OTA firmware updates, auto-bind, multi-bind, LUA device configuration such as flight controller PIDs, etc. and cloud connectivity: No problem! These are all features that TBS first brought into the R/C space with TBS Crossfire! All receivers arrive in binding mode and it remembers your bind across all of your radios, so the bind button is technically not needed ever. 

UNDER THE HOOD

TBS Tracer runs on the Crossfire engine. Over 6 years of active development and by far the most popular R/C system for FPV enthusiasts! You instantly tap into the same reliability, features and compatibility that drone pilots see as synonymous to peace of mind. So what’s the difference? Higher update rate, lower latency, smaller antennas due to higher frequency. Crossfire users will feel right at home!

THE TBS GUARANTEE

In our over 10 years of our existence, software updates have always been free, continuous and plenty. Hardware is built for longevity and comes packed with a great range of features that are yet to be unlocked. Support has always been laser-focused on customer satisfaction. For pilots, by pilots.

It is the reason why TBS products have the largest following, and why investment into TBS Tracer will continue to pay dividends in future – just like TBS Crossfire continues to do for all hobbyists.
