poor choice in servos will do that with other 1.2 video tx's includeing the fox 1.2 video tx


use servos that don't do that plain and simple

Try to find a friend who can do soldering job. This is not very difficult task, so smaller iron can do that

As farthest you can from your radio receiver! 30 inch and more and far from servos. Don't worry about the separation from motor and esc.

when filters are used the video tx and uhf rx can be placed close to eachother,, this is what makes some uhf system better than others


some esc's are also bad as well as motors usesd

the combination of the right choice will give you best results

hi all im keen on using 1.2Ghz instead of 1.3Ghz on my first fpv build i have a few questions though. with 1.2 will my uhf radio gear interfere with the video signal? also if i get the FOX-700 aka the BOB Tx and use this antenna 1.2Ghz Yagi which pigtail do i get as the old link has expired and what sort of range can i expect? . also does anyone know where to get Skew-Planar Wheel circular polarized omni antenna or Cloverleaf pre made? i have seen some for 1.3 but none for 1.2
forgot to mention which filters will i need for better qauility?

thanks in advance

Sorry, I don't use this so I can't really be of any help. But I have seen guys that use UHF and fly on 1.2 so its done quite frequently
also if i get the FOX-700 aka the BOB Tx and use this antenna 1.2Ghz Yagi which pigtail do i get as the old link has expired and what sort of range can i expect? .
I have the FOX 700 and really like the VTx. IT sounds like you're a little new to the FPV game, so why don't you start with a set of omnis. If you want LP (since you mentioned a yagi) then a Vee Antenna and dipole would work. Don't ask the range question and expect a good response. It's affected by too many things. I could get 2 miles on an omni set one day, then the next only get a mile, possibly becasue the air is more humid and someone turned a large Rf spewing device on.
also does anyone know where to get Skew-Planar Wheel circular polarized omni antenna or Cloverleaf pre made? i have seen some for 1.3 but none for 1.2
All of the antennas mentioned in this post can be bought at videoaerialsystems.com . Alex does a fantastic job. That being said, Hugo at True RC makes some great CP antennas as well. You should check him out too. 1.3ghz is commonly used to refer to 1280mhz (1.28 ghz). It's the only legal channel in the US, but I see you're not from the States so I'm not sure about your regulations.

forgot to mention which filters will i need for better qauility?
Err... I haven't used any filters yet. Fly it and see if you need them. You might not.
thanks in advance

Today I've received the CL+SPW set from Markus123456.
So far I'm very happy with the ground tests.

I must say that those antennas are perfectly built and the package was shipped with great care!

He also is very helpful and have a great support here!

I strongly advise to order from him! Thanks again Markus!

Okay, lets put it this way:
1. Powerful Video Tx could be bad for your Radio Rx and Servos, so move it far as you can.
2. Anything made from metal or carbon is bad for your Radio Receiver and mostly the Video Tx, the ESC,the BEC, the fly camera and the camcorder(Gopro) are bad for it. So keep your Radio Rx a way in the tail of your plane or the wing tip(for flying wings), if you want to fly far.
I found this recommendations most essential.
Some systems play better together that is correct too.

with good ground testing you can figure what is not good for fpv and placement onthe plane and ground station.

moveing as far away as possable can be a hastle and again ground tests will show you what is effective

choice of set up before install is a good idea, so your system plays well

some guys can fly with stuff very close and have easier installs with future planes

set up planes with systems that can work close to eachother is the best idea and then do more separation than you think to correct for mistakes or in acuracies for ground testing

if for instance the gopro is positioned at a distance not to effect uhf transmission put it a few inches further way, but no need for furthest distance, because ground testing will show you no need for this

I thought I wanted a tracker, but flying without one while waiting for RV to get theirs done, I found out I do NOT need a antenna tracker. With a patch and a 2nd Rx antenna, I rarely ever touch the antenna.

if you put a patch or yagi on your head you will find great capabilities to get best video]]
