FPV RC Tank Battle w/ Unimax Forces of Valor 1/24 tanks w/ 5.8ghz tx and rx
 
Just a little quick video I took last night of some FPV tank battles. This was a trial run and all works well.

The equipment used:

2 - Unimax Forces of Valor Tanks
1 - 200mW 5.8 TX
1 - 400mW 5.8 TX
2 - 305 RXs
2 - CL antennas, a pair of a 4 and 3 leaf. 1 antenna used per setup.
2 - regular antennas that come standard with the TX and RX.
2 - Sony board cameras w/wider lens
2 - Micro sized 3s 370mah lipos to power each TX.

Regarding FPV equipment, the biggest thing I found was using the regular standard antennas had some big intereference issues and drop outs just around a 1 or 2 walls, not more than 30 feet away. The moment I changed 1 antenna to a CL antenna the reception was dramatically increased and going around 5 or 6 walls was no problem. Ive know this to be true when flying FPV in open spaces with the same setup but I was surprised to see it work so well indoors through and walls.

Wow, hardcore tank wars!!!

Next step on these is to upgrade to micro/nano tx's and cameras.
