Transmitter Power Output
TRANSMITTER POWER SETTING
EU limits output power to 100mW US limits output power to 200mW = 200mW output power 2.4GHz RF 0dbm = 1mW 3dbm = 2mW 6dbm = 4mW 10dbm = 10mW 20dbm = 100mW 23dbm = 200mW A Simple yet effective RF Sniffer http://macgregor.co.uk/support/faq/gen2.htm 2.4GHz Antenna 1/4 wavelength = 30.7mm = 1.21 inches  DH9104 & DH9100 TX schematic drawing (actually transmits 4 channels) http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1571121

Motor Amps using battery MAH rating and flying time
Calculate motor amps from flying time
Motor amps ? If you start with a full battery and get an accurate time how long the battery lasts, you can figure out the average current that the motor drew during those minutes. Amps = (mah) x (1amp/1000ma) x (60minutes/1Hour) / (RunMinutes) Amps = (mah) x (60/1000) / RunMinutes Amps = 0.06 x mah/minutes Example: Amps = 0.06 x mah / Minutes Amps = 0.06 x 1000 / 6 = 10 amps average current Amps = 0.06 x 1000 / 3 = 20 amps average current = 1000mah battery that lasts 3 minutes Amps = 0.06 x 1300 / 3 = 26 amps average current Amps = 0.06 x 1300 / 4 = 19.5 amps average current Amps = 0.06 x 1300 / 5 = 15.6 amps average current Amps = 0.06 x 1300 / 6 = 13 amps average current Amps = 0.06 x 2000 / 6 = 20 amps average current = 2000mah battery that lasts 6 minutes Amps = 0.06 x 2000 / 3 = 40 amps average current Amps = 0.06 x 680 / 6 = 6.8 amps average current Amps = 0.06 x 680 / 3 = 13.6amps average current Amps = 0.06 x 900 / 6 = 9 amps average current Amps = 0.06 x 900 / 3 = 18 amps average current Well, more or less. Pick a ratio of MAIN/TAIL and apportion the total amps A good ratio may be 3/1 where main = 75% and tail gets 25%
