900MHz RC ?! Where is this ?
You should use 2.4GHz for video.

i apologize i have no idea why i wrote 900 mhz its 72mhz maybe cos i still have brain pain from searching and reading hehe

so 2.4 mhz would be a better option than the 900 mhz for video range?

please if possible can you specificate what antenna to buy what is the best diversity to go for . all the parts is needed to buy them .

my best wishes

Pitfalls I ran into:

My system:

You should read this thread:

900mhz video will work, but I got the best results with the 1 watt 2.4ghz lawmate video.

i'd recommend that you build two systems: a trainer and a fully featured system (6-8km range system, GPS etc...).

Fly the cheap trainer first and try to get a feel for it.
