There's no theoretical reason why one is inherently better than the other, beyond what I said
about external Rfi. When the Rx is near the ground, the noise floor is often lower, because
some of the external sources of Rfi are blocked by terrain. When it's high in the air, the
noise floor can be higher. On the flip side, I chose to drive right through the middle of a major
metropolitan area. (See attached)

How it plays out, is like every other part of FPV. "It depends."

BTW, I think Trappy did 50 miles or so with ezUHF with omnis on both ends of the link.


If we are thinking about the same flight trappy made he was on a mountain flying down through a valley. Either way, your comments reassure me that the RL system will go FAR
