But I have done quite a few ground range checks with the Dragon Link.

Under VERY POOR conditions, with the transmitter inside my house, and the receiver inside my van, the signal had to go through LOTS of obstructions, trees, houses, cars, etc... I got approx 1.6km at the best distance NON line of sight.
And 3.6km "almost" line of sight, but going through a very dense urban area.

I expect once in the air, and LOS, the Dragon Link will reach much farther than my video, or my battery will last, and still have enough to get home.

I plan on using 900mhz video gear. I already have quite a bit of 900mhz stuff and don't want to buy other gear right now...

Hahah your post was really entertaining. Those no. seem pretty good and what airplane are you working on ? And are planing to use the Oracle diversity receiver ??

you were lucky?

didn't 1/2 the guys have problems and some even had to send them back for testing?

a few guys even crashed because of the DL.

did you not have to modify yours to get it to work on 900?

you were not lucky at all



you were just a betta tester who had to pay for the testing lol

you have not flown with the DL yet?

how could you possably give advice like that?

You could email JMSTech and ask when more will be ready.

Since david22 has stuck his nose in here, I am unsubscribing from this thread.

I'm sure whatever he is posting is really helpful

I don't see his posts, I have him on permanent ignore.

BTW, be sure to take ALL his advice.....

david22..... the only guy on the FPV forum that HAS NEVER POSTED AN FPV FLYING VIDEO, BUT HE STILL HANDS OUT FPV ADVICE BY THE BUCKET LOAD.

Feel free to figure out what that is worth....
