I was thinking 600w is marginal myself.

Pfffft you've never lived!

I've got a new 540TVL cam on the way and I made a goof proof patch for my 1.2G Vrx which means I can get a 2nd bird in the air soon with a bit longer range. I've also converted the Scorpion to Assan 2.4G ready to try. So this weekend is cactus for me but I'm itching for a fly soon. I roll onto night shift next week so I have mid week FPV goodness.

I jammed it between a servo arm and the wing so I won't lose it. But that's as close as I got so far.

Picked up some new wheels last week and have been spending all my spare time fitting a nudge bar and towbar. Roof racks go on tomorrow or I'd be in the air then too.

Anyway I pinged him with a gentle PM and we'll see what happens.

Cheers,
