Hey


Hey, I'm pretty new to Fpv, I decided to get a quad and stick some 5.8 gear on it using just the Fatshark googles with receiver module and an Immersion 5.8 long range transmitter and cloverleaf and skew planar antennas + also have a helical. Had quite abit of fun so far, got some quite good range with the helical but I started to want to fly round trees and buildings but cant with 5.8 due to the poor penetration with 5.8 gear. So I was thinking about using 2.4ghz or is that crap aswell? What is everyone else here using?

Cheers

If you want the best penetration go for 1.2.

I've been looking into that but thought only 2.4 and 5.8 were allowed?

Lol here we go again. Yes, 2.4Ghz under 10mw is legal, as is 5.8Ghz under 25mw. Anything over this is not legal. Chances are the system your using isn't legal anyways. It's not that massively policed. Fly in reasonable areas I.e. not the runway approach to heathrow airport but more in a field where no one is too bothered. You'll be fine.
