Ok Jim thanks for the good wishes but we do fly Turbines and IMAC 220cc size no problems.
The measured GROUND RANGE was over 1Km with a measured receiver sensitivity of -104dbm typical and yes the power out put is 60mW <18dbm.
The RX was placed 600mm above flat ground on a wood trestle the TX was hand held as if in use by the operator.
We can confirm the range test as quoted.
We can down load the data as received and all instrumentation is certified to NATA.
Good look with your project Jim and thanks for the last four and half years.
