Remote ID transponder
The DroneBeacon db122fpv is a so-called direct or broadcast Remote ID long-range transponder, that needs both an external GPS receiver and needs to be powered by the drone. It is low weight and designed for the FPV market, but can of course also be used for other drone applications as well. The db122fpv has two 6-pin Molex PicoBlade connectors. You need to connect a GPS receiver to the GPS IN port, such as the BN-880 GPS receiver. The module supports GPS receivers that output the NMEA GPS protocol. The GPS OUT connector needs to be connected to the drone for power. The board will also relay the received GPS data to this GPS OUT port.
The db122fpv is compliant with the (upcoming) standards in the EU and USA. The FAA has approved the db122fpv for usage in the USA. Furthermore, the transponder supports all transmission protocols for maximum flexibility. There is a status LED to show the status and the db122fpv can be configured easy using any device, by pressing the configuration button and connect to the dronebeacon Access Point.
Users need to register their drone at the FAA website: https://www.faa.gov/uas/getting_started/register_drone
