This antenna is the nuts going for a long range attempt as soon as we have another nice day.

Quad built as well and tested got 12 mins if flight time. Am happy with that

With regards to distances, what's the furthest anyone's been in the uk? And what airframe?

Cheers guys

John

EZUHF Thomas Scherrer and Dragon link all work the bollox and will fly stupid distances trouble is they all work pretty much the same and can cause glitches (or complete lockouts as we saw at the meet) when flown with others using uhf as well, sometimes your lucky sometimes not....I used to get glitches on the older sytle reciever when flying with nick but the new one has had no problems at all. also we fly with Bernie who is on Chainlink and we never seem to have any probs either.

Over at fpv labs there was a thread and the outcome was that they all have the same potential problems and that not one was any better than the others but EZUHF has a hack to allow 3 EZUHF's together but not sure if this then makes you more susceptible to other systems blocking you.

Angelos can probably explain why !!!!

I do like my Dragon link has the added ability to jam people opening their car doors.
