Introducing Shark Byte, Fat Shark's 2nd generation digital HD system.

Shark Byte delivers near-zero visible latency High Definition 720p 60FPS video on your Fat Shark HDO2, HDO, HD3, and more. This digital HD system supports up to eight operators on standard 5.8GHz FPV frequencies and can be used alongside analog systems without interference.

Shark Byte has a brand new compact goggle mounted module with integrated DVR and directional antenna. While mounted, the Fat Shark goggle can be seamlessly switched between digital and analog. Goggles can be even stored in their case without removing the digital module!

The goggle and module can both be powered by an existing Fat Shark battery* (with included balance lead adapter). For longer flight days, the system includes an XT-60 terminated adapter with a regulator to supply 8.4V to goggles and modules from standard 3S or 4S battery packs.

Image clarity has been improved with a new fully digital MIPI camera developed by RunCam; the RunCam Racer HD. The small 14x14mm footprint camera is suitable for the smallest of builds and comes with an adapter to facilitate mounting to larger frames. The camera has an OSD for custom tuning that can be navigated either by a button board or the radio control sticks (requires BetaFlight).

The transmitter size has been reduced and now uses standard 20x20 mounting holes. Power has been upped to 500mW and can be initiated in a standby mode that bumps to full power only when the quad is armed. The transmitter and quad PID settings can be navigated with radio sticks via an OSD or programmed using an external button board.

*The Fat Shark goggle battery option results in reduced operating times. Please check the power level of your goggle battery before every flying session and never begin flying with a low goggle battery.
