A compilation of all the best practices and lessons learned. The smallest, most robust and full-featured video transmitter from TBS in a RACE format. The engineering team at TBS has spent months analyzing all the feedback and successes from the TBS UNIFY PRO video transmitters and has completely redesigned the final revision in the TBS UNIFY PRO line.
Smallest, lightest video transmitter on the market
2-6S input power supported
25mW / 100mW / 400mW power settings
Integrated heat sink
Ultra-clean transmission (up to 16 pilots at once!)
PitMode - power up your quad during a race
Easy OSD, FC and RC channel changes, with fallback button menu
Robust RF amplifier allows powering up without antenna for hours!
Clean powerup and video switching
SMALL & ROBUST
By completely redesigning the circuitry and changing key components we managed to set a new standard in size and weight for a 6S capable HV video transmitter, without impacting usability. The new heat sink made from patented polymer materials improves heat resistance while also protecting components from impacts. Pilots will be blown away by the clean output power, robustness and ease of mounting. In a nutshell, it's the perfect video transmitter for any serious drone racer.
SMARTAUDIO V2.1 - TEAM RACE READY
The industry standard SmartAudio technology has been revamped slightly in this final iteration. The power levels have been rearranged to make more sense, doubling range with each setting: 25mW / 100mW* / 400mW*. Additionally, PitMode functionality has been opened up to in-race operation, which makes it possible to all but disable output power through Smart Audio, thus making team races or powered up quads on standby a possibility.
CLEANSWITCH - NEIGHBOR FRIENDLY
CleanSwitch is a technology developed at TBS that will ensure that your video transmitter is interference-free while powering on, or while changing channels. All current video transmitters swipe across the entire band while being powered on, often resulting in flickering and heavy interference to anyone in the air, regardless of video channel chosen. TBS CleanSwitch will allow you to power on and change channels while your buddies are in the air, without any external interference. CleanSwitch is race friendly, and pilot friendly ... that's how we like it at TBS :)

I bought this vtx to see what all the hype was about. It's currently on one of my race quads and does its job admirably. The provided wire isn't great or very flexible at all so I would recommend using your own. The vtx itself needs to be unlocked to get all the power capabilities and it's fairly straightforward. Compared to the other vtx's I use at 25mW this thing gets very hot and should definitely be mounted directly to carbon if possible. I wouldn't recommend mounting it on your fc if your quad sits plugged in and idle for more than the time it takes for a race heat to start. Video quality is good as expected from a TBS product and overall it's very solid indicating good crash survivability. The biggest question, would I buy another? I already did...it isn't the smallest or the lightest or the coolest(temp) option out there but the design and form factor along with the video quality are worth the buy for the price. All in all a solid performer as long as you don't pack it in right on your other electronics you'll love it!
Love this vtx! Has the protective cover over the components and allows for more flexible mounting locations! And the mmcx connector ensures for a secure connection between vtx and antenna!!!
