In the FPV wold, we are conditioned… conditioned to cringe when leaving LOS, conditioned to fear concrete structures… until now.
The Ultimate Hybrid takes the innovative Ghost Hybrid concept to a new level, with the traditional long range/low latency Ghost uplink, and a high power Tramp video transmitter, packaged in a beautiful anodized heatsink.
Designed by pilots, built by pilots, supported by pilots.

For Alpine Cinematics
When flying between mountain peaks, launching several km from the pilot, flying at >200km/h following aerial acrobats, there are not many systems that are trusted.
ImmersionRC works with some of the best in the business, to provide reliability and performance which is second to none.

For Bando Basements
Tired of flying through windows on the top floor of your local bando? much more fun to explore the basement instead.
The Ultimate Hybrid has been tested by months by some of the most respected pilots in the hobby, with a wonderful quote from one of them “What Is This Witchcraft…” after flying not only into a forest, but out the other side.
Intelligent Video Tx Control
Intelligent, and direct control of the video transmitter from the Ghost ecosystem. Use either the OLED menus on the Ghost Transmitter module, or the responsive OpenTx tools menu.
Tx remains silent on power-up, shuts down immediately in an (unlikely) failsafe.
Designed to mount seamlessly to any frame designed for Caddx Vista™ systems. The Ultimate Hybrid mounts in seconds to a huge number of commercially available frames.
For traditional frames without support for digital transmitters, a couple of M2 holes in the top plate is all that it takes to securely mount the Hybrid.
As with all Ghost Hybrids, a choice of solder-free connector, or solder pads, to hook it up. Just 4 wires to connect to the flight controller.
