LEGAL! i have no idea how you've managed that one without favours of some kind...

If all goes well, I see no reason why we could not have it available before the end of June. HOWEVER - PLEASE don't take that as gospel. We are trying, and we still need a few ducks to line up yet.

consider it gospel!

I promise I will give you all the info once I know we are good.

i'm watching the proverbial kettle boil...

EDIT - You will still need a video link to fly FPV.
ha ha!
i'm totally ignorant on telecomunications etc etc, but can this technology be utilized for video, to achieve similar distances? i realize it is totally different data, but would it be possible?

Legal because ACMA have a standard for the frequency we are using, and we will be well within that standard. So no favours.

with regards to video - this is not something this device will do - but that is something else we are looking... but one thing at a time.

Cheers

[QUOTE=AussieHoppy;15194073][QUOTE=Firepower;15190174]I CAME DOWN TO TINGALPA A FEW WEEKS AGO FOR A LOOK AND THE BLOKE I KNOW LIVES DOWN YOUR WAY BUT COMES OVER TO THE NORTHSIDE TO FLY A LOT.

sounds like they just pop up over your way for a flight, nothing organised.

Yes - that's right.

when next you are at tingalpa strip, let me know, would be great just to say hi


I wend down to look at the barge for the next day when going to Stradbroke and Max was to give a demo on the vario usually for gliders. Not sure when down your way again.


thanks mate, noted, and soon i'll start chasing prices and ordering.
seems to me supply cant keep up with demand...


[B]not sure if i'll do 500mw or 1w.
i've heard the 1w gets very very hot, very very quickly without air flow. this itself in my mind, can lead to long term unreliability in the 1w vTx?

I would have thought 500mw would be enough but bigger is better.

This bloke only uses 300mw. Check out all his videos and you would learn a fair bit. I'll do it soon when I get time.

Something interesting - looks like Futaba is good.

This bloke just told me he went 15klm (as per the video) with this gear'

I know 15km is possible with futaba 9c and r319dp rx with 404 cm antenna wire.

I TRIED TO ASK HIM ABOUT THE 404CM ANTENNA BUT DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THAT SIZE ANTENNA WOULD GO ON THE FUTABA 35MHZ BUT I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE 9C.

HE ALSO SAID - Here the same: I use 35MHz rc radio with 404cm long antenna and 2.4GHz video downlink.

15km Flight 2 (3 min 2 sec)


So the 9c would be for me if I wanted to spend that much.

Thanks - my brain kept looking at the tx.

Guess people would be after the Futaba 9c after seeing the recent video with 15klms range.

Will keep checking around to see what the range is on my Futaba T6EX Fasst 2.4. I have even see people putting a patch antenna on the Futaba for more distance.

Thanks

The only thing I will add is... you and your plane must also be capable of 15kms!!

You need to have enough power on board etc.

I can tell you one thing though... when you are out 5kms, and something goes wrong - it starts running down your legs - Ask me how I know.
