Flying multiple planes (LRS's, other tx systems) at the same time

Hi all !


As me and some of my friends are having problems when we "try" to fly togheter, i would like to ask some of you that also fly with friends:
  • What system(s) (LRS or not) are you guys using when flying together (detailed setup, including antenna contruction/placement) ?
  • Have you experienced problems like failsafes, range reduction, glitches, other(s) when flying together (detailed description) ?
  • What solution(s), if any, have you found and applied to avoid those problems (detailed description) ?
  • Any other ideas, technical advices, related info, etc. ??

The goal here is to find some tips to help those (like me) who are experiencing problems when flying with multiple systems. As there are a lot of information on different threads, this maybe usefull to centralize the info and make it more available when searching the forums. Thanx !

I worked with Tim @ ReadyMadeRC to ensure a fellow flyer and myself didn't have the same channels on our Scherrer TXs. If I remember correctly there are 256 channels so the chances are slim to have the same one, but technically possible.

So far no problems.

- 2 DL's and an EZUHF

- Stock dipole antennas on DL's and diversity single pole's on EZUhf

Have you experienced problems like failsafes, range reduction, glitches, other(s) when flying together (detailed description) ?

Yes:

- My DL + my friend's DL: Constant failsafes and a crash, major range reduction, almost impossible to fly together
- EZUhf + my friend's DL : Failsafes, but sometimes work
- My DL and my friend's EZUhf: glitches and failsafes, sometimes it works (not very often)

What solution(s), if any, have you found and applied to avoid those problems (detailed description) ?

Haven't found yet. But have tried:

1 - From DL forum: turning tx on while friends are flying and repeating procedure to find a good glitch free frequency spot... no success.

2 - Re-Binding rx's... no success...

3 - Staying away from each other (good distance)... no success...

4 - Swapping Dragon Link rx for different one... no success...

Glad to hear that I'm actually thinking in switching to Scherrer... But i'm looking for more info about flying with more than 2 people without the problems we actually have here How can you know what channel you system is using ?

I wonder if you could have changed the freq on the EZUHF.... I know you can do it using Immersion tools - but I don't know if you get enough seperation.
