Good ol’ 2.4 control and 5.8 ghz video
Upgraded 2.4 and 5.8 is shaping up to be my all-time favorite link. It’s not that great when used within a few miles of houses (wifi emissions I think) and not that great when used in it’s plain ol’ vanilla form, but upgrade it up a bit, go out into the wilderness and it works impressive enough that I would call it “long range” gear.

Why I like it:
-Telemetry: I like my “high precision variometer” beeps and I like audible warnings over OSD warnings. I have had a heck of a time trying to make a variometer work worth a darn with 1.3ghz video and that kinds seals the deal for me as a soaring pilot.
-channel choices: 1258mhz in my area is almost always fuzzy/unusable. If 1280 is in use by another pilot or just plain getting stepped on by an outside source then it’s time to pack it up. 5.8 always has something that’s working.
-antenna gain and antenna size: while it’s possible to mount high gain 1.3 antennas on your head it’s a much more manageable to mount high gain 5.8 antennas like the pepperbox on your goggles instead.
Why I don’t like it:
-range: I can never get my 2.4/5.8 gear to go as far as my 433/1.3 gear
-fuzz out: while 1.3 ghz tends to fuzz away before you lose your link, 5.8 will be go from rock solid perfect to dead hard snow in a heartbeat. It’s very sensitive to having anything between you and the airplane.

Ranges I am seeing at 600mw:

I have not tried to remove the notch filter on the F1 FC, since the Dynamic filter feature is not supported on F1.

Assuming there is relatively low/no noise in blackbox log, would it give any benefit (less latency obviously) that will outweight the possibility of burning motor.

Just asking

Anyone have thoughts/ experiences to share

Little things mean a lot. Weight creeps up. Things begin to skew. But some little things look awesome and are worth the effort.

The seat back for the Ford Flivver is not mentioned anywhere. I made a template and found some black sheet called leather. To get a quilting effect, my wife sewed seams across lines I’d made. These help the back look better than just painting brhind the pilot figure.

We thought we make a combo housing for the diversity, in this case the 1,2/1,3GHz and the 5,8 receivers are permanently connected. But thats not a problem because while using the 5,8GHz modules the 1,3GHz modules are automatically turned off.
Here's a render of the 2 housings.
