I was under the impression that 2.4ghz was more susceptible to trees and structures than 900mhz. That didn't seem to bother that flight I guess.

MAN....that was impressive.

he had LOS the whole time, thats all you need for 2.4ghz!

hahah!! don't listen to that goof before this I think he his yanking your dong.

I have a 1000mw 1.2Ghz lawmate and an 8dbi patch and I have gone 5.8km.

but you could possibly get way more, or less range you never know!, pick parts carefully, search the forum for bad noise on the camera you want/ etc etc..

my transmitter is 1.21 jiggawatts though so it goes a lot farther, you should buy one of those.
cheers cow

its all fairly standard trusted gear, the plug and play package from hobbywireless: http://hobbywireless.com/cart/index....roducts_id=457
