How does AIR Commander work


AIR Commander works in ISM 2.4GHz band, but you don’t need to be worried about any interference with your RC setup! In reality is AIR Commander much safer then remotes which uses WiFi to control camera on board. The device uses only 1% of 2.4 GHz band (your RC transmitter uses whole band) and is wirellessly active only when the button on the console is pressed. Additionally each command takes only about 0.003s to be transmitted. Thats not all, AIR Commander uses very smart technology (CSMA) which scan band before sending any data. If there is any other active communication, AIR Commader will wait for a pause.

All these numbers are tested on hudreds of setups all over the world. It does not matter if you are using DJI M600 or Futaba / Graupner / Multiplex transmitter, all works in real world in many countries. Furthermore, the receiver mounted on the camera is sending data just about one second after powered up to pair with console. Once paired, the receiver is completely radio silent and sending no wireless signal at all. That means your RC receiver can’t be harmed by any interference during flight.

AIR Commander is tested on hudreds of setups all over the world. It does not matter if you are using DJI M600 or usual RC transmitter, all works in real world in many countries.
