since I've been using 2.4g radio (2 years) the only probem I've had is the odd miss which was very unusual until it was pointed out to me that the battery switch I was using was not up to the job so now without a switch, all is heaven............just as it should be

thanks to another guy (flypapa) who pointed me towards a good web site (exposureroom) I'm now able to get good quality vids online, if your interested then have a look at the first 3 I've put on, the dog was just to test the website, the testing of the ez* was similar, the last for the moment is flight to 1612ft it's the first time I've been able to manage to put a full video online as exposureroom has no limit, time or size.

I found the video quality was superb better than any other sites I've tried

after many changes at last I have managed to get rid of all glitches 100%.

for all internal causes/interference, putting the esc outside on top near the motor, covering all servo cables with coax shielding and foil covering the rx,that stopped about 80%......see pic but that didn't stop outside interference, HT transformers, HT lines or electric cattle fences but after fitting multiplex sinth IPD rx it solved all problems, plus no rx xtals to worry about.

it's such a good feeling when it goes up to 600-700ft motor running flat out without a single miss, in the past I always got some glitches on the way up.

with the video cam onboard, on playback you can hear the IPD rx clicking everytime it encounters interference............the last 15min flight I counted around 30 clicks but there was no interference to the ez*whatsoever

looking back now it wasn't the end of the problems but now all is sorted..2.4g the way to go

my first rc planes,got the easy glider but found it a bit twitchy to learn on so then bought an ez*, different thing altogeather.

use them both for ap, usually video as I find at my stage of learning I find the playback usefull to see where I'm going wrong

the camera I'm using is a Sony W50, 6 mega pixel, stills + video the video can be set to tv hd but you only get 12 mins of film before you have to download it to the PC so I normally set it to standard which gives me about 45 mins of watchable video

the cam is fired with a mini servo glued to the front of the camera and connected to No 6 ch on the rx

I spent almost 2 weeks changing everything there is to change in a ez* to try to stop my motor cutting out and loosing all control of the plane. I had many suggestion from the forum to solve the problem but only 1 person suggested outside electric interference.

at the end of 1 flight the ever present onboard video was still running for a while as I was walking to collect it, on playback all was silent except for the sound coming from somewhere inside the ez* of and electric fence ticking away and the servos trying to activate.

checking over the hedge I found an electric fence keeping the cattle in, next day went to another field away from fences, all performed perfectly.........all this after fitting a new motor........new esc.........new rx.....new xtals.....changing the tx, plus a large repair on the fuse when all control was lost at 50ft at the time being flown by an expert flyer

be warned check for electric fences..............aparrently overhead power lines have no effect as it's a continuous current with cattle fences it's a pulse
