The Duo5800 includes ImmersionRC’s NexWaveRF technology, increasing inter-brand compatibility, and providing clean video in even the harshest of RF conditions.

Dual, independent receivers greatly increase usable range

40 Channel support, RaceBand, ImmersionRC/FatShark/Airwave, Boscam
 Exclusive high quality NexWaveRF receiver technology
 Triple A/V output, for three viewing/recording devices
 Single-button user interface, and remote control from the groundstation
 ~1km range with 25mW CE-Legal transmitters


Diversity may be used in several ways, all of which provide a better FPV experience.

  • Use two patch antennas to cover a wider flight area.
  • Use a patch, and an omni directional antenna to provide 360 degree coverage for landing approaches
  • Use antennas with opposite circular polarization to ensure that stronger CP reflections are used

40 Channel Support

Version 4.1 of the Duo5800 introduces 40 channel support. Five bands are fully supported, including the standard ‘Airwave’ band used for all ImmersionRC and FatShark 5.8GHz transmitters to date.

All other common 5.8GHz FPV frequencies are also fully supported, including Boscam, Team Black Sheep, DJI, etc.

Filtered Inputs

To eliminate the range-reducing effects of co-located UHF, or 2.4GHz uplinks, the Duo5800 is equipped with two high-performance RF filters, one on each of it’s independent receiver inputs.

The Smart Receiver

The Duo5800 is the first in a line of ‘smart’ receivers, designed for single-cable, plug and play, integration with the ImmersionRC Antenna Tracker (v2)  system. Power, Audio, Video, and a bidirectional data link, are all passed through a single Mini-Din connector, connected to the Antenna Tracker.

A Patch Above

Directly connect one of the Duo5800’s SMA inputs to an ImmersionRC 5.8GHz, 13dBi patch antenna for a serious range boost. Connect two of them to cover a larger area, with automatic switching between the two.

Install the Duo, and it’s antennas on an antenna tracker to follow a model around the sky. The 13dBi patch provides at least a factor of 4 increase in range, even for license-free 25mW Transmitters.
