I'm sure I could have gone further, but it was not practical to do so this time.
Now I'm using the 14 MZ, and will perform new tests with different types of RX to compare results.

My 2.4 GHz video link was also OK with TX effect similar to 4 micro wave owens (I've been victimized for this earlier, equipment not in use anymore).
What did you have connected to the RX? Just servos? I think your test was done in very ideal conditions. The effects of motor, video TX, cable placements, and other environmental noise in our flying locations (not all of us can fly in the arctic will drop the actual range of the link. Not sure if scrtsqrl is using 35 MHz or 72 MHz.
