TBS UNIFY PRO HV RACE 25/200mW 5.8GHz Video Transmitter (SMA)



This batch improves the power input filtering to cope with higher kV motors and heavier props while still delivering a noise-free video signal. We have also included a protective circuit for the 5V power supply that drives all the internal circuitry. This addresses two of the biggest complaints or reasons for defects.

Distilling the smallest, lightest and most powerful video transmitters (aka "the golden standard") down to a bare minimum for FPV racing, at a very attractive price!

Robust RF amplifier allows powering up without an antenna for hours!


Zero interference even while powered up, it's now a possibility! If you've ever repaired a quad during a race, you'll know the frustrations of not being able to power on and test your system. With PitMode, we will reduce the output power to a bare minimum (way below single digit mW's), and move to frequencies unused by race organizers, to allow you to power up your quad and still see the image! You've got a few meters of range to put your quad through its paces before placing it on that starting grid, and in combination with CleanSwitch you can power on as soon as your channel is available without interrupting any of the active channels. 


SmartAudio technology provides UART and I2C control for your entire video transmitter. Parameters such as output power, bands, channels and frequency can be freely controlled. This enables remote channel control directly from a smart device (TBS Crossfire, external bluetooth or wifi module required), from your radio (TBS Crossfire with TBS Tango or OpenTX compatible remote required), or from the OSD (e.g. TBS CORE PRO). With all these options available, you ought to find something that fits your bill. Together with CleanSwitch, the sky is the limit ... jump between channels without interfering fellow pilots in air, create backup-/emergency-frequencies, global VTx power adjustments by race organizers or other clever systems aimed at streamlining and improving race management are now a possibility!


CleanSwitch is a technology developed at TBS that will ensure that your video transmitter is interference-free while powering on, or while changing channels. All current video transmitters swipe across the entire band while being powered on, often resulting in flickering and heavy interference to anyone in the air, regardless of video channel chosen. TBS CleanSwitch will allow you to power on and change channels while your buddies are in the air, without any external interference. CleanSwitch is race friendly, and pilot friendly ... that's how we like it at TBS :)


Even though learning binary was a fun mind-game, in practice a single-push-button or OSD-controlled video transmitter is just much easier to operate. Gone are the days of video transmitter cards, stepping on people's channels by mistake, or a mismatch between your goggle and video transmitter frequencies.

    Please take time to read the entire TBS UNIFY Pro Manual to become familiar with the many features, push button sequences, settings, and operation. There are a few unclear instructions in this manual. We'll try to clearify below.

    UNLOCK: The Unify comes from the factory in "locked" mode which prevents you from accessing the channels and bands shown in red/orange on the settings chart. It also prevents you from entering the power select mode and remains at the 25mW power level*. To unlock your Unify, do the following:

    1. Enter the Band Select mode (red light flashes twice, blue light flashes to current band). 
    2. While in band select mode, press and hold button until the blue LED goes out (about 20 to 25 seconds). 
    3. Your transmitter is now in "unlocked" mode. It will remain "unlocked" after power cycle. The next time you enter button controlled menus, you will also have access to power selection mode (red LED flashes 3 times) and all 40 channels.
    4. You can reverse and re-lock the transmitter by repeating steps 1 and 2 to re-lock. 

    WHILE IN PIT MODE: A solid red LED indicates you are in pit mode. If your VTX is operating in locked mode, it transmits In-Band PitMode (very weak signal on selected channel); if unlocked mode, it transmits Out-Band PitMode (very weak signal on the fixed frequency 5584MHz for the TBS Tango). While in Pit Mode, you can adjust parameters and navigate the push button menus, but none of the changes will take effect until you save, exit AND power cycle. Most of you will not be using a Tango, instead will be using push buttons or SmartAudioV2. 

    STUCK IN PIT MODE IF USING PUSH BUTTONS only: A solid red LED indicates you are in pit mode after power up. If you powered up your VTx at some point while holding the button, it will permanently enable PitMode. This means you're forced into PitMode on every power up. This is ideal for a race situation where you may want to power up your rig to work on it without any video transmission interference. To activate video transmission, press and hold the button for 5 seconds and it will transmit on your selected channel. To disable PitMode on power up, you need to push down the button while plugging on the battery for your quad. Then cycle through the menu to confirm and save all changes. After this, your Unify RACE will continue to operate normally.

    * You should possess a HAM radio license before using these channels and power levels.
