Hi,

I start FPV 3 months ago within a bixler and 2.4 ghz 500mw VTX, and would like to fly midle range, about 4 km without patch antena. I am wondering what should be the Video setup (TX, RX, Anatena) in 1.3 ghz. I plan to order a 1 w lawmate setup, but still uncertain about the range.
THANKS

This thread is to post complete Skywalker setups, not for Q&A.

What motor do you guys recommend from HobbyKing if I buy the Skywalker from there? I'm looking for long flight with maximum efficiency. I'm thinking about something below 1000kv with 4s battery.

this is not the place for Q and A, use the normal skywalker thread. This is for proven and working power systems.......

stop asking questions here
