Speaking of dummy loads, I seem to have misplaced mine. Is there another way to test range, or do I need another dummy?

You could take the antenna off the RX. But you would have to do some testing to establish good or bad.

I recently took off before connecting my RX antenna and got out about 1/2 mile before i noticed rssi really low.

I waited almost 3 months and it was worth it (there was a waiting list back then). So a week shouldn't be too long for new buyers !

Just a note, Mike did PM me and respond to my posts, thank you. All is well, I am a huge fan of the Dragonlink equipment it works so well for FPV. If I may suggest....perhaps consider another more streamlined form of communications for support issues. I know you are swamped with orders but a more timely acknowledgement would be appreciated. Regards

Either would work just fine. It depends on the brand of GPS more than the HZ rating as to how well it deals with interference.

I took two clips of some tricopter video and put it through VReveal to enhance it. These clips were a one button fix with vivid colors. My Sunnex lens needs some fine tuning on the focus.

Plug in a stero plug to the dsc still the same cant work. Anyone anymore idea why n how to get it to work? Mick can u help on this? Thank you so much.
Motors going beep-beep-beep non-stop usually indicate they see a throttle signal. Did you turn your throttle trims (and possibly sub-trims) all the way down on your Tx? Do you have your throttle connected to the proper channel on the Rx?

That should hook up easily and work perfectly with the Dragon Link.

The days of 3 months wait are LONG OVER The new mass production is going very well and we can produce as many Dragon Links as you guys can order, and send them right away !
