You can get a DragonLink with a JR connector, yes.

Congrad Dragon link Team.
Yesterday, first time I made some ground tests. For video I use BEVRC 1,3GHZ system. There was not any interference on video, when I powered the DL both in low and high.
My friend has another brand UHF which is two times more expensive than DL. He vet badly suffered very bad video intereference and had to buy new system.
One more time thanks to Dragon Team.

I Changed back to the Dipole (which is now as vertical as possible on both feed and ground) and I've not noticed any glitches but I did notice when range testing that the 'resolution' (I'm not sure if thats the correct term) seems to be drastically reduced at distance (e.g. the control surfaces dont move smoothly) is this normal?

Hi all, many thanks to Chris1seto for arduino code, at this time my arduino generate perfect PPM - AeroSimRC USB-adapter works with it very good. But my DL is still don't work with it - led indicator is red. I tried to make power supply of DL and arduino from one LIPO, I tried to make power supply of DL from LIPO and arduino from USB and connect "-" of arduino to "-" of LIPO.
It still don't work. When I power on DL led is red for short time, then green for 0,5 sec and then red. What I do wrong?

The Dragon Link comes with this connector standard. No soldering needed, just insert the pins into the correct sockets for the JR and it will work.

My dragon link has a standard 3pin JR (servo) connector.. You'd have to source the connector and its probably a 5 pin din connector

When can I order a v2 system?

I had not updated the stock level after my last batch, and the system will only systems that are in stock and ready to ship. I have now updated the stock level, you can buy one and all orders ship within 24 hours Thanks for calling this to my attention !

We ship the 5 pin connector for the RF module, it comes standard with the system

Stock is not low, I have a LOT of them in stock. I just forgot to update the system with the last production batch, so it stopped selling them You can now order as many as you like

[QUOTE=kaz1104;22687477][Quote] Question About Dragon Link
Hi,
I am considering buying the Dragon Link to boost my RC signal for my UAV. I have a Spektrum DX7 radio and AR7000 receiver now. I don't see Spektrum radios listed on the Dragon Link's website as one of the radio types that can be used for it. Can it be used? If so, would I need to use a different receiver with the Dragon Link hookup?

Thanks,

Jan

There is mention here >> http://www.dragonlinkstore.com/v2/node/12 .
Shows and describes connections for a DX7 Spektrum transmitter......
I beleive I put on the website that the Dragon Link works with ALL RC transmitter types, I will check that to make sure. I need to make that more clear as I do get this question a lot.

The Dragon LInk comes with a receiver, and everything you need to hook it up and fly

I'm flying with a FM right now because I can't get this to work and its really starting to be a pain. I don't have a lot of time left to fly this year. It will be cold and white here real soon (IOWA)
Hi,

First, your Dragon Link is FULLY GUARANTEED, you will get a working system before the snow comes We usually find that problems like this are caused by improper hookup, so we need to know exactly what LED indications you are getting on both the TX and RX, then we can help you find and fix the problem. Finding and fixing a simple hookup problem is much faster and easier than shipping a new system and still not having it work, so we always ask for the details of the hookup and what you are seeing first.

In the less likely case that you have a defective peice of hardware, it will be replaced with a new one right away, no need to wait for repairs

But my RSSI numbers were great!
Fresh water will not hurt the Dragon Link receiver as long as it is not powered. We actually clean with with water and other chemicals as part of the manufacturing process. Salt water will kill it badly So if the water was even slighty salty, I would suggest taking the heatshrink off, and soak it in fresh water for a couple hours, then rinse it very well with tap water.
