Skycat Rescue Radio is a professional radio system designed with just one dedicated goal in mind: to eject your Skycat parachute system with full confidence. It's also compatible with many other parachute systems on the market.
Skycat Rescue Radio was designed with just one goal in mind: to reliably eject a parachute on a press of a button, either an integrated or external button, at same time or individually. There's no arming or settings: just power up and you're good to go.
Ready-To-Use Rescue Radio with TBS Crossfire module supports 868 MHz (EU, Russia) and 915 MHz (USA, Asia, Australia). Frequency in use could be changed afterwards from TBS Crossfire interface. Skycat Rescue Radio supports various JR radio modules, and therefore the frequency could be selected to meet local rules.
NOTE: The Rescue Radio transmitter uses a 800 mAh 3S battery with a 2 pin JST connector. We currently can not ship this battery outside the US. We can forward you information where to get the required battery.
If you are familiar with RC radios and know terms like PPM, BIND, FailSafe etc. you can buy a Rescue Radio without a radio module, and do the radio module settings by yourself.
For a package w/o radio module, add an external button set to cart separately.
Skycat Rescue Radio is manufactured for highest durability: the radio enclosure is machined from a single aluminium block, and then covered with carbon fiber.
We didn't make any compromises and aimed only for the best.
Accidental powering OFF is not possible due to a safety rocker switch.
Industrial-grade M8 connector for an external eject button.
One radio unit can control several parachute launchers. Each copter has their own receiver, and the radio unit can be swapped from one to another in seconds.
Accident proof button for parachute eject. The button has a safety function against accidental activation. Button presses shorter than 0.1 s are ignored.
Steel clip for attaching the Rescue Radio to your RC controller's handle bar, or your side pocket, belt etc. The clip can be rotated between 4 positions for convenient positioning.
The enclosure supports most JR modules in the market, and we have chosen TBS Crossfire as our default module.
By choosing Skycat Rescue Radio with a TBS module installed, we prepare everything that is required for use: update firmware, basic settings, apply moisture protection for the receiver, mechanical installation and extensive testing.
Skycat Rescue Radio is tested according to EMC standards. We stretched the standards even further, and the power lab was unable to make the Rescue Radio fail under any power/radio circumstances.
Skycat Rescue Radio is CE marked.
The eject button is within immediate reach, under the pilot's thumb.
For multiple RC controllers, add one additional external button for each controller, and one additional receiver for each copter.
Snap it to a handle bar, and connect the M8 connector, and the Rescue Radio is ready to use. It works as stand support on the ground too.
Ready-to-use kit's receiver fits nicely on side of the V3 Pro Trigger, securely behind a wall.
