  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

Eachine ROTG02 FPV Receiver for Android
« on: March 09, 2018, 21:17:41 »
Here is is my Review of the Eachine ROTG02 FPV Receiver for Android. A Simple to use Video Receiver for your Mobile Phone that offers Diversity and depending on the software you use you can also use it for DVR.

Just got one for £18.

Very impressed by the performance on the two supplied "rubber ducks".

So far have used the software linked by the website advert, FUAV.

Did you @palros  (Paul) or anyone work out what the other socket is for?

Think its just your standard 5v, earth, video and maybe audio out.

I have both the rotg01 and the 02, as far as I can tell there more or less a stock vtx with a USB signal convertor cobbled in,

That would be the logical answer, but this is the Chinese, so heaven only knows what or even what pin order, etc, etc!

What software do you use, have you tried more than one, and which seems best to you please?

nothing like a bit of Engwish twanslatwon to get the old grey matter working though.

I tried a few different apps when I first got the Rotg01, about half a dozen or so, some off play store some scattered about the net but I eventually settled with "FPViewer" as it gave the best stability and had all the features Id need goggle split screen, wide/full, high frame rate and the record feature works well enough without causing massive amounts of latency (wouldnt chance fast flying while recording still though).

when I also got the Rotg02 I carried on using FPViewer as it works just as well with that too, tbf theres no reason why it wouldn't as the 02 is pretty much the 01 with a bit of diversity thrown in. (though that "bit of" definitely makes a big difference to the range and strength of signal)

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=labsp.android.viewer&hl=en_GB

mines mounted to the back of my turnigy evo tx and I primarily use it to record rather than fly through it, saves me having to draw a feed off my goggles.



oh and I also binned one of the duckies for a clover which match the rx clovers on my frames which also improved the signal strength. ~~

True, but unfortunately that depends on there BEING stuff to translate, and in the case of the second socket, that's what is missing AFAIK.

I was just about to have a little play around with my older rotg01 and see if I coukd  id the pinout when I found this....


the rotg02 as I said is the same as the 01 but with diversity antennas added so essentially the pinout should be the same also, heres a quick snap of my own 01 and the pinout is shown on the 01 where-as the 02 has a second scan button were the pinout is usually listed so they probably just decided not to bother.

This is a good bit of kit, used it with an eashine TX02 but so far have not got it hooked up to my mobius/vtx but might be camera setting NTSC/PAL

its handy to have and a bit more practical than using your usual vrx, specially when your just looking for something to act as a dvr (over otg to a android device that is), add in the decent scanning feature and the fact that neither my 01 or 02 have failed to pick up a signal all my other vrx's can pick up and it fills my needs nicely, coincidentally Ive think Ive had the 02 pick up both pal and ntsc before and not noticed a problem so that shouldnt be an issue atleast. :shrug:
