Connex Prosight 720p HD FPV System

Today the beans were spilled by FoxtechFPV when they accidentally added and published the pending product release of the Connex Prosight 720p HD FPV System that is scheduled for May 10th. Connex, GetFPV and HobbyKing have all been pretty tight lipped about the product other than the information that was given with the released teaser earlier this month.

While FoxtechFPV did take down the listing they didn’t do it fast enough for Google to index the page thus making it available via Google cached pages and as everyone knows once its on the internet it will never truly go away.

The weight of the vTX looks to be 30 grams which sounds nice but the dimensions are not listed so it will be interesting to see what the overall size might be since this is being marketed towards the miniquad racing pilots so it should need to be pretty small so that it can fit on a miniquad platform without being to big and heavy. Looking at the renders it looks like it may be a Connex Mini but without the case. Connex has confirmed that the Vision is half the weight of the Mini which is 60 grams but this may be the weight of the case if it was removed.

The most interesting bits of this system is the (claimed) zero latency 720p HD digital video and the $499 price tag. While the $499 price may  sound like a lot it is much less than the typical prices that the Connex products sell for thus bringing it a little bit closer to the hands of us mere mortals.
