Question
Dragonlink

I'm looking to start doing fpv and will be purchasing the dragonlink.

On new to fpv, what all will I need to purchase to be up and running with fpv?

Thanks for any help.

WE HAVE 2 PLANES. WE WANT TO FLY THEM AT THE SAME TIME USING DL SYSTEMS. WE ARE USING FUTABA 2.4GHZ ON ONE PLANE AND WE MIGHT USE EITHER ANOTHER FUTABA 2.4GHZ OR 72GHZ ON THE OTHER PLANE. I ALREADY HAVE ONE PLANE WITH THE DL SYSTEM (USING FUTABA 7c 2.4GHZ). IF I PUT A DL SYSTEM ON THE SECOND PLANE WILL WE HAVE ANY PROBLEMS FLYING AT THE SAME TIME? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

Thank you for the quick response. Looks like i just might be ordering another DL system for my other plane. I have another question in regards to my last question posted. I understand that the DL puts out the same power regardless of controller used, is it fair to say that if I use a 2.4 Ghz controller, it cancels 2.4 Ghz and puts out its own UHF signal instead? (keep in mind i'm not an electronics expert)...also just to be clear, can I use two 2.4 ghz controllers at the same time with DL? Thank again.

Ah, that's not really how radio works at all . the DL runs on the 70cm band and is thus at a much lower freq than a 2.4G radio. Thus, it fully ignores anything happening on the 2.4G band. If you are transmitting at 2.4G with the DL on as well, both signals will propagate and will not interfere with each other in any sort of major way.
