Tim at ReadyMade is one of the good guys.

FYI - We have now increased our product base.

ImmersionRC - Transmitters, Receivers OSDs, Trackers etc
FatShark - Goggles, Head Trackers, RX Modules etc
EagleTree - OSDs and Telemetry gear, G-Force sensors etc
RUBY
GoPro Camers etc
Tricopters
Etc Etc.
We also have a range of brilliant Helical and Skew antennas coming, and all going well, we will have the only Australian legal LRS on the market. (Hopefully within the next 3 weeks)

We have some ReadyMadeRC products like Tracker systems and cables etc.

Lots happening! Happy to answer any questions etc, so feel free to ask.

Cheers
John

Just remember that most of the FPV gear that people are using here is illegal, much of it on questionable frequencies especially the long range stuff. The reason why most shops dont import or sell it here (the smart ones anyway) is because they are not allowed to. Everyone I know gets all their gear from OS.

Be warned

hi like you i am starting fpv i have done extensive reserche into the radio laws of Australia

first off the only frequency band that you can legally fly without radio training (and sufficient paperwork) is 5.8 and 2.4 (but i wouldn't fly 2.4 in Australia because
wi-fi can interferer)
secondly 900mh is off the table KNOW ONE can fly this band because Australia aicraft detection and safety monitors run on this band and it is actually extremely dangerous

if you get a advance uhf and a vhf license you can fly 1.3 and above (al a low - mediam power)



so realy the only stuf that you can flu easily is 5.8 so yer no long range ....


hope this helped
