+1 What Devonboy said. UK FPvers still go for 100mw UHF systems because
A: It's 10 times more powerful than a standard 10mw rc 2.4ghz tx not to mention will give you better pentration because of the lower frequency
B: The 2.4ghz frequency is bloated as it is, avoiding this frequency at all costs especially if your flying in a urban/sub-urban area is a good decision.
100mw UHF will still give you a good distance and dont forget its not about the output power of your tx its about your recievers on the other end.
