Airbirds Race Box VTX 8 Person Timing System

We are very proud to announce that is now the official timing partner & sponsor of the FPV Canada Drone Racing League. FPV Canada has been using the Airbirds open source infrared timing system ERLT since the start and we only have good things to say.  Working closely with Airbirds allows us to be involved in doing research, development and testing of their products and give real time feedback on their software and apps.  

Airbirds provides and open API from their website and also able to work seemlessly with MULTIGP website and Lapsync.  VTX timing is the future of drone racing hardware and Airbirds is 1 of 3 players in the world with this technology. Airbirds prides itself in being a big part of the open source community to allow free development and building of software around their proprietary hardware, their project code source can be found on Github.
