Makes video streaming from a drone easier

There is no more need for a separate video transmission system. Edge has an integrated HDMI input and video compression engine allowing it to capture Full HD video from an onboard camera. Stream is delivered to the GCS over a long range 5.8 GHz Wi-Fi link.

up to 1080p

Wi-Fi up to 2 km

Dual-processor architecture

ARM Cortex-A53 64-bit quad-core CPUFull-fledged Linux system with plenty of resources handles general tasks, as well as networking and media.

ARM Cortex-M3 co-processorRuns real-time operating system for time sensitive tasks such as PWM output for motor control and RC signal decoding.

Temperature-stabilized dual IMU

Integrated heating maintains constant temperature of IMU and barometer to ensure stable operation in cold climate. In hot weather the aluminum body efficiently dissipates heat from the CPU.


Thin and Sleek

Edge comes in a low-profile case with side-oriented connectors and can easily fit even in very compact drones.


Just 15mm x 97mm x 46 mm

Simple mounting

Threaded M2 mounting holes on the bottom offer a convenient and sturdy attachment to the frame.
