Yes.

A friend made it for my, fitted to my frequency. It's very light.

With an instrument to measure the gain it gives three times more than the normal one.

If you are interested I can post some photos, but tomorrow, I go to the bed now, here it's 1:48AM

Hi guys,

wow, amazing stuff - I almost bought myself one of those new 2.4GHz setups, but now I think waiting a bit longer won't hurt....

Just saw that also Graupner anounced their own 868Mhz system a couple of days ago.

Check their IFS Site for more information.



cheers,

The “softer” refraction of the radio waves generates more reflections, with the result that a visual link to the model is not always essential.

I like it!!!

Hi Tron, I'v been reading up on this amazing setup and I am very interested in it aswell as everyone else. I have a couple questions about it.

1) Is this system a "line of sight" deal? meaning, is it only long range line of sight or can you fly low to the ground long range, saying under tree levels or behind buildings etc?
2) Can this system be used with a JR 8103 Transmitter?



Can't wait till April!
