I certainly didn't skimp intentionally on the receiver. It's just that I have about 6 of them so I slapped it on there. I didn't know it was a short range deal. Thanks a lot for letting me know. I am just glad I didn't lose my plane. I came real close to messing it up pretty good.
The ar7000 is ok for up to 2 km flights if you are careful with the installation. Get an extension (600mm) for the satellite receiver and put it as far away from the receiver as you can, I used to put receiver at the front and satellite on the tail but it can go out on the wing too.
Range test without fpv gear powered up, then test with fpv gear on and make sure no or minimal reduction in range check, trust me it's worth spending time to get this right.
