The DroneBeacon db120 is a small, but powerful (direct/broadcast) Remote ID transponder.
The transponder has both a battery and GNSS receiver.
It can be mounted on a drone using the provided 3M dual-lock stickers.
The DroneBeacon db120 is a so-called direct or broadcast Remote ID long-range transponder, equipped with its own GPS and battery. A transponder is also called add-on, tracker, tag or (wireless) number plate. The DroneBeacon can be attached to any (consumer) drone using the 3M dual-lock tape. It is compliant with the (upcoming) standards in the EU and USA. The FAA has approved the db120 for usage in the USA. Furthermore, the transponder is optimized for long range due to its transmit power and antenna design. It also supports all transmission protocols for maximum flexibility.
DroneBeacon can be attached to a drone by using the included M3 dual-lock stickers or use the M5 screw noses. Fully charged, the transponder allows a battery live over 3 hours. There are 4 battery LEDs to show the current battery level. The transponder can be configured easy using any device, by pressing the configuration button and connect to the dronebeacon Access Point.
