This is a second Aomway attempt to bring in a full digital FPV system onto the market. A system that will not require purchasing special goggles or radio in order for you to enjoy HD FPV flying experience. Is it then worth our attention and is it better than DJI .... ???
Aomway promises quite amazing features.
7km range. All long-range pilots should get super excited and automatically start thinking how much more they can get from it by putting better antennas on this thing.
Quite decent latency - 30ms in HD mode. Considering the size of the transmitting unit and latency, which by the way is not bad at all for full HD image, the Aomway seems to be aiming towards customers flying long-range flying wings and aeroplanes instead of FPV racing.
Next thing that stands out if you compare Nexus V2 with the previous version is 5.8Ghz operating frequency. Truth is that some people like it and some people will hate it. Fact is, it makes all your old 5.8Ghz antennas 100% usable with this new system. But it is also worth mentioning that the system might be interfering with analogue systems out there. This would be a similar issue to V1 that according to the test shows the signs of interference with the GPS system and long-range low-frequency control systems.

Any other similar products out there?
CONNEX ProSight HD Vision Kit, Fat Shark Byte Frost Digital HD FPV System, R2TECH DVL1 1080p System.
I simply can't cover them all.
Comparing new Nexus V2 products to the DJI FPV link is not quite fair. After all, they are completely different in many ways and both products have been designed for different purposes and use. I can definitely see Nexus V2 finding the way up in the world of flying wings. Where the size of the air unit doesn't really matter that much and superiority in Range over DJI product will definitely make a lot of people happy. Especially because it comes for it a fraction of the price.
I definitely look forward to seeing live tests of the Nexus system. And with all my heart I wish it the best.
