Hi all- thanks for this thread- been building my first fpv platform equipment for some time now- and started my sky surfer v1 ( from readymaderc) build this week- paint job, pan/tilt mount, flaps, LEDs, upgrade motor/ ESC/prop etc- will be running frsky 2.4ghz rc with 1280mhz video with LPF and LC- plus rangevideo OSD and antenna tracking- will add pics and video as it comes- for those of you running 2.4ghz rc radio (especially frsky) with 1.2ghz video-check out this thread- 'dipoles for 2.4ghz' http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...php?t=1426685- changing the stock rc RX antennas for dipoles will make a tremendous difference in range when harmonics between 1.2 ghz and 2.4ghz normally kill 2.4ghz rc RX range -upgrading your rc RX antennas make all the difference- no need to boost with amplifiers or patch antennas on the rc TX...

On another note and tip- check out this new revolutionary hd fpv /rc dedicated cam- truly a go pro killer-1080p/30fps, 720p 60fps, a fraction of the weight of the go pro (only 38g total), plug n play to run as live fpv and recording cam, powers off of rc RX socket ( no worries about go pro battery failing in live feed), can mount to standard pan tilt mounts etc -all for only $150- foxtech's HoryzonHD fpv cam- http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...php?t=1630045- I was lucky enough to win a free sample- and will be posting a review soon!
