Zack's first quad, lost orientation and went... really far away, really fast. I tried to recover it after he handed me the TX but could only plop it down in the forest. Turns out I got it on the only paved, open area in the forest right next to a cell tower.
A+ to Zack for plugging in the recovery buzzer on the KK2.0.... however... it really didn't help until we got pretty close, certainly needs to be louder in the forest. In any case, it worked, and we found it successfully after about 20 or so minutes of searching around.
A few common misunderstandings about FPV technology. If something doesn't sound quite right, keep watching, I probably explain it better further on. There are many things in this video that depend. FPV setups always depend so even the misunderstandings depend.
More Mw = More Range? 0:27
Lower GHz = More Range? 5:36
OSD w/RTH = Necessity? 8:14
Diversity = Perfect? 10:38
Flying behind obstacles? 15:05
Long range = More fun? 16:23
Spektrum = OK for FPV? 19:13
Recently updated my business website, Custom FPV Setups. Put on some new information, and working on the mobile site as well. Business is in full swing, spring time is a great time to get ready for the summer flying season!
My Axial SCX10 Deadbolt (only upgrade is aluminum steering pushrod). Spring is coming... eventually... and everything's melting. WARNING: the RX box in the stock Deadbolt is NOT WATERPROOF, it has a big hole in the side (LOL) for the RX wires. You have to waterproof it yourself. I used a balloon, zip ties and a little hot glue to completely seal both the box and the RX itself inside the box just in case.
The truck performs VERY well though in these conditions. SUPER torquey.
