Any help would be great.
I use the Dragonlink system and love it. It's super simple and I have never had it fail. I'm currently using a Futaba 9CAP tx and plug a Futaba trainer cord from the DL transmitter into the 9CAP. It's plug and play and makes it really easy.
I noticed you asked about video tx freqs. I use both a 5.8 setup and a 1.3. My 5.8 is a quick and easy solution for shorter range flying. I have it hooked up just using a pair of Fatshark goggles using a set of blue-beam antennas. As for the 1.3ghz, I use this on my wing and get great results for longer ranges. I use a patch antenna on the ground and a V in the air.
I have always purchased my Dragonlink equipment direct. Readymaderc.com is now also carrying their complete package but I think Tim is out of sock on the DL right now.
The $269 package has everything you need to get started. The only thing that you need to decide is how long of an antenna cable you need based on your application. Really easy.
I would be happy to help with any other questions. I'm sure the other guys on this forum will also have some good info.
