The Flytrex Live 3G Plus is the most advanced and light weight flight computer available today. Flytrex Live keeps your multirotor connected at all times and makes flying exciting than ever and secure. Key features include: automatically logs flight details as-you-fly, earn badges as your piloting skills improve, join a challenge and compete with other pilots world-wide, fly-away defender using the live-tracker feature, live flight channels lets you share your flight telemetry and Google map flight path with friends & family while in the air and much more. There are some core upgrades that the Live Plus has over the older Live 3G, but dont worry, if you already own the Live 3G it is still supported by Flytrex.
Differences Between 3g Live and Live Plus
|Live 3G||Live Plus|
|Basic processing power||10 x processor power, built-in FTDI and CANBUS support|
|Requires CANBUS adaptor for systems using CANBUS protocol||Includes built-in CANBUS capabilities, integrates seamlessly with CANBUS systems (DJI and other).|
|Includes two (red/black) power wires and additional data port||Uses a single port for both data and power for cleaner and simpler installation|
|Requires power wire soldering for installation||100% plug & play installation, no soldering required
|Flytrex Live 3G||The Live 3G Plus|
|Blade 350QX/1/2/3, Q500/Q500+, Phantom 1, Naza 1/Lite, Iris+*||Inspire 1, Phantom 3 Pro/Adv, Phantom 2 / Vision / Vision+, DJI A2, DJI Wookang, DJI Naza N2, Solo|
Updated Processor.The Live 3G Plus has a new and stronger processor that is 10 times faster - This enables the Live Plus to work with the newer aircraft such as the Phantom 3, Inspire 1 and Solo. It also means the Live Plus have much better future compatibility with future aircraft systems since it can handle a much wider range of communication technologies than the previous Live 3G.
Built in CANBUS. The Live 3G was only capable of handling Serial communication (slower protocol). The Live Plus includes built-in CANBUS processor and can handle both CANBUS and Serial data. Again, this makes the Live Plus much more versatile. From the user perspective, installing the Live Plus with CANBUS systems, such as the A2, Phantom 2/Vision/Vision+, Phantom 3, Inspire 1 and others, has just became much easier and cleaner since our older CANBUS adapter is no longer needed. Just a single wire connection and it is ready for use.
Single Port for Data and Power. You'll notice the Live Plus no longer includes the two red/black power wires that were previously included on the Live 3G. As part of the hardware overhaul we now have both power and data going to the single port (that is the off-white 4-pin data connector cable).
Better Quality Connector. We replaced the previous connector with a much better connector - you'll notice the higher quality of the new connector. This connector is much better designed for use on flying systems and handles vibration much better. It is also much easier to unplug it, so the connector won't break frequently, a problem we've seen with the previous model design. Due to the new connector design, although it is easier to unplug, it will never release by mistake during a flight since it needs to be "pressed" using your finger to have it released.
Improved Firmware OTA Capabilities.The Live Plus brings back our OTA firmware upgrades in a much improved manner. It takes seconds to upgrade the firmware over the air and we definitely plan on introducing different features this way by pushing new firmware updates to users in upcoming weeks. Firmware upgrades are completely transparent for users.
No Soldering Required. Installation with all of these systems does not require any soldering and no need for any external CANBUS adapter, so the installation is very clean and the overall price is lower compared to the previous Live 3G.
