Thanks Mike, I should mention that I had control throughout the entire flight and the DL system was in LOW power mode (intentionally) I'll post the segment of the flight in question soon, Pat.

Hi Pat,

No, even on low power that is so far out of anything normal, I am guessing your OSD settings are very wrong. Let me know what the voltage settings you find and I can tell you real quick if that was it or not.

Land This, I Chickened Out, Flown with DragonLink

Land This, Flown with DragonLink, Explicit Content (2 min 51 sec)

Just out getting some practice with some local pilots. Normally there aren't as many people flying here but today made for big turn out.
I was just out burning up some batteries and thought how close can I get to this thing. If your style of flying is more like Acro or obstacle, check out white311boye's channel on youtube. I fly cinematic, It's harder then you think to fly smooth and get those sweet pan shots.
I rock a Zenmuse H3 3D gimbal on my TBS Discovery. It hangs from the bottom and I need legs. I know legs on a TBS but it works and I like it. Flown with DragonLink about a 1/4 mile at 10 ft
BTW, Giving away a bdseidler T-shirt. just leave a comment on this video.
It's that EZ.
Or
Land this manhole cover and post the link to the video along with your comment.
1st person to post Wins.
I have people thinking about it already.

Seriously though, that puffed Life batt is a ticking time bomb that could get your house burned down pretty darn fast...Id snip the wires (one at a time please) and drop it in a pail of salt water...let it die a fizzy "life".

Sorry still off topic...

WARNING: LIFE batteries have different voltages. If you use LIPO charging voltages, and LIPO cutoff voltages, you are probably going to ruin them right away. Make sure charger and speed control is set up for LIFE batteries.

Also, I needed pictures of your plane install, not the TX. The TX will either work well, or not at all. Range can be lost in the RX installation.

Mike
I was shipped on 7/3/2014 from Getfpv.com

I just made a range test on a road today and I went up to about 5km before the rx started to flash a lot. It was on low power and the antenna was mounted on a long stick

Here are the monkey blunt build videos. I should be carrying the money blunt systems on my website as soon as production begins. I will also be carrying the popwings brand new along with the monkey blunt systems and a power system package with t motors. In the next few weeks. I will be really competitive with the prices and shipping.

You can see how I mounted the dragon link and antennas.

Not really That is the old firmware on the website, and it does not have half the performance of the Next Generation firmware. I really suggest you give the update another try. The new firmware is not BETA anymore, all Dragon Link systems for the last couple months have been shipping with it, and it is incredibly good. The new firmware is nothing short of RC PERFECTION.

The Dragon Link Next Generation Firmware is now available and was released in May 2014 !!! This firmware is a HUGE advance in all areas of performance, especially Resistance to interference. I can not stress strongly enough how much better the Dragon Link system will perform with the new Next Generation firmware installed, I encourage everyone to update their Dragon Link systems ASAP. The new Next Generation firmware can be flashed at home to any Version 2 system at home with the USB update device available from www.dragonlinkrc.com I do not have a list of changes for the new firmware, because EVERYTHING has changed. This is not an update to our firmware, this was a total rework of the entire firmware, it is very well tested, and the results have been amazing. The resistance to interference is incredible, along with increased range, and absolutely stable, rock solid control. Upgrading to the Next Generation Firmware solves so many problems, that it will be very first thing we recommend when troubleshooting problems from now on. The improvements we have made basically makes the Dragon Link a new system, and takes the Dragon Link to the next level of reliability and performance ! You can download the latest Next Generation Firmware from here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...extGenBeta.zip For instructions on how to update the system, see this video:
