This was also Explained back on post 39 and on

Standard rc gear (35/72 mhz or 2,4) tx -> rx -> repeaterbox -> uhf tx -> uhf rx.

You still need the same amount of uhf rx, but now you just use your standard rc gear without hacking your tx.

Apologies, people might be waiting upon me to compose a brief review - which indeed I will be. Rather embarrassingly though, when I went to were the digital scope was to measure any lag, after 2 minutes of playing around, the only 3S battery I took with me died. School-boy error!

Anyway, my intention is to put together a brief review - and soon - but in the meanwhile I can report it appears to do 'exactly what it says on the tin'. Simply plug-n-play!

If you understand the potential applications for this device and you have such a requirement, then I've yet to encounter any negatives (including any inhibiting lag). It just works!

how do you order this thing? is the shipping something your choosing at the bottom there? i assume other is the USA and the description says this weighs 80 grams,,, is the 100 gram shipping the one to choose or is there shipping material? how does it come, slow boat or ems?

being a paypal thing, just don't want to order it wrong and have to wait longer waiting on me to transfer more money, etc.

This is great!
I could be sitting on the couch watching my big screen, flying FPV, wirelessly . with the repeater on the roof antenna.
Now I am going to need more video power...

Later,
Gundy

Customs says up to 45 days to clear, postal service won't even run a trace on a customs package until 45 days of sitting. I had my video TX sit for about 25 days.

Jumperviren is to choose the mode with.

CH1 to CH8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 and ground

CH8 provides 8 channels
CH9 provides 9 channels, Ez UHF to run in CH9 modes.
CH10 provides 10 channels
CH11 provides 11 channels
CH12 provides 12 channels

It is shown at the end of the film.

You have to take everything from the repeater when you do it even if I do not do it on the film.

Any further updates? Complaints? Latency tests? I've got my DL TX mounted up above my R/C trailer but going wireless between my TX & the DL TX would be a nice add-on if the latency doesn't hurt too much.

Thanks,
David

So how's this one working out for you guys? I'm about to order one myself. FPV is so much fun, but I feel seriously limited by my current radio and I do not want to jump between FrSky and UHF all the time. This seems like a fantastic solution for those that have one radio and lots of receivers you can't just throw away.
