You forgot to add the 1W amplifier. With the 7dBi patch and bare FRsky Tx, I can only get 4-5km. Of course like you said before, people have to take my findings with tweezers, because I am affiliated to RangeVideo . I am glad you are more happy to take my statements as true now lol.

Yes you do. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...postcount=3506
Also if you have a proof of someone flying with FRsky and 7dBi patch to 10km I would love to see it.

I really hate to go off topic but I don't want to start a new thread either...Is the openlrs coming out any time soon? Didn't see a date on their site...but I imagine it will be quite cheap compared to other LRS.

I imagine it will be competitively priced, no point in making it heaps cheaper than the opposition unless they thought it was inferior.

Do you call end user price = 4 times x manufacturing price "competitively priced", as are those LRS ?
No, Melihk system I hope to be really open, allowing DIY for $50 by people having same skills level as those required for building a copter controller.

I've heard the markup on these LRS are retarded and it's funny how the price on this one is exactly the same as the DL. Reviews should start coming in on the CL system and at $199 that'll be an easy choice if it performs.

A $50 kit... sign me up...

$50 would be amazing but I doubt that would happen. The only thing I ever bought from Flytron did not work and even with a 25% discount I will not buy from them again through the principle of it, the thing I bought was only $18 too but that's not the point.

I wonder what the risks are here with interfering with Distress Beacons.

In Australia distress beacons now operate on 406Mhz. Satellites and Aircraft are tuned to respond to these signals and can locate within 100m!!

Not being an RF guru, how close does a system need to be before it starts to become a worry?

Cheers

OK - And for use RF Noobs... that means what??
