Why? 10% power means range reduced 3 times compared to full range (square root of power ratio in both modes). Futaba for example advertise 3000m range in air, have you ever heard 1km range check for a Futaba radio?
@Chase: does this receiver has any pad to pick an analog RSSI signal.
CC2500 outputs digital RSSI, can't be used directly by existing OSDs on the market.
If negative, does the Rx LED change somewhat to warn about lost packets?
@RENATOA: Yes, the Rx LED will change the frequency of flashing to warn about lost packets
