Airbirds VTX Based Timing System | Race Box for 8 pilots
Coastline robotics is proud to announce the official FPV Canada time tracking system.
FPV Canada has been using the Airbirds open source infrared timing system ERLT since the start and we only have good things to say. Working closely with Airbirds allows us to be involved in doing research, development and testing of their products and give real time feedback on their software and apps.
Airbirds provides an open API from their website FPV-Sports.io and also able to work seamlessly with MULTIGP website and Lapsync. VTX timing is the future of drone racing hardware and Airbirds is 1 of 3 players in the world with this technology. Airbirds prides itself in being a big part of the open source community to allow free development and building of software around their proprietary hardware, their project code source can be found on Github.
The official Google Chrome App of the RaceBox is directly connects to FPV-SPORTS.IO for a smooth integration of both time tracking and race management. Both Mac and PC native apps are being developed and will be release shortly.
