Drone autopilot and video streaming in one device
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.
1Connect camera and Wi-Fi module to EdgeConnect a micro-HDMI cable from your camera to HDMI port on Edge. Plug in Wi-Fi using the supplied micro-USB cable.
2Connect laptop to Edge via external Wi-FiPlug the second supplied Wi-Fi module into your computer. Connect to the network called «edge».
3Open QGroundControl and start streamingEdge can also work with other MAVLink-capable GCS like Mission Planner, APM Planner or MAVProxy. Video is supported only in QGC.
Works seamlessly with QGroundControl
Emlid developed a special version of the app to make streaming as easy as possible. Firmware updates, vehicle configuration, video control and mission planning – everything in one application. Simply connect your device to Edge Wi-Fi network – telemetry and video from the camera will appear on the screen.

UAVCAN GNSSExternal sensing unit packed with multi-GNSS receiver, dual magnetometers and high-precision barometer. Sensor measurements are transferred to the drone controller over an industrial grade CAN bus using UAVCAN protocol.
Power module with Hall sensorReliably supplies Edge system with power and provides current and voltage measurement. Supports batteries up to 12S and current sensing up to 200 A (with upgraded connectors and wires). Two power modules can be used simultaneously for a redundant setup.
2x long range 5.8 GHz Wi-Fi modulesFull HD video and telemetry link on a distance up to 2 kilometers. 5.8 GHz frequency band allows to use standard RC 2.4 GHz equipment with Edge without interference.
