For Casual Use
Arrive at the local park, answer the question ‘what channel are you on’ before powering up your quad. Join ongoing races safely and simply.
The TNR wand uses touch-free NFC technology to communicate with ImmersionRC TNR tags, as shipped with the popular 5.8GHz Tramp HV video transmitter.
Query the frequency, set a new channel, change the output power level, all without applying power to your quad.
Use the ‘Race Heat’ mode to simplify casual races between friends, automatically allocating race channels to all pilots.
For Race Event Use
Anyone who has been to an FPV race event will understand the challenges surrounding frequency management, and the management of quads which are not currently flying.
Transmitters turned on in the pits area are dangerous, and can cause pilots in the air to be blind, loosing control of their craft. Setting frequencies between heats is time-consuming, and error-prone.
The Touch’n’Race system avoids all of these problems, and greatly simplifies race event management. Control is transferred from every pilot at an event back into the hands of the race director.
Powering up in the pits, with assigned low-power pit frequencies is no longer frowned upon, but encouraged. Debugging of powered-up quads is also possible without disrupting a race.
Respect Local Laws
The Personal edition of the TNR Mini-Wand respects the regional settings of the transmitter, ensuring that local frequency spectrum use laws are respected.
The Race Director edition, supplied to event organizers only, can bypass these limitations allowing exceptions in place for race events to be taken advantage of.
Radio frequency ‘event licenses’, which are obtainable in several countries allow more than the traditional 8 RaceBand channels to be used, and can support over 20 racers with the appropriate license.
Batteries Not Included?
Shipping batteries in recent years has become more and more difficult. Now considered hazardous material, shipping batteries causes delays, and adds unnecessary cost.
The TNR Mini-Wand uses easy-to-find AAA Alkaline cells, available at any local gas-station, convenience store, or supermarket. Never get caught with a dead battery during a race event, replacements are always around the corner.
