The Dragon Link puts out PPM and servo pulses in the standard way noraml RC receivers do. The Dragon Link is fully compatible with all RC equipment, if there is an issue with the RVOSD, then it was something they needed to fix on thier end. Dragon Link has never had any incompatibly issues with other equipment that conforms to RC PPM and normal servo pulse standards.

I don't demand perfection from a niche product created by enthusiasts but there's no need to pretend there are no problems either.
(If proven wrong on some point, I'll update this post.)
Kiwi,

Do you own a Dragon Link, I am sure if you ever flew with one, you would be amazed. We have hundreds of people using the system and flying FPV at distances and in ways that were previously not possible.

As far as service, I guarantee every Dragon Link ever sold. I have even replaced for free beta systems that were 2 years old, at great expense to myself. Every peice of Dragon Link gear, no matter how old works, or I fix it. Every last person that reports a problem with ther Dragon Link equipment gets it fixed, no charge, no hassles, I just make it right. I run this company exactly the way I would want to be treated when I am a customer.

No one is perfect, some issues have slipped though the cracks, but I am very honest and make any issue right as soon as it comes to my attention. We were the first to implement transmitter filtering to eliminate interference to video systems, and currently have a signal that is so clean the unwanted harmonics are so low that they are not even measureable. Every problem we run into is fixed, thats just the way we do things ! Sorry you do not like the website, but quality Dragon LInk production and improvements have been the priority

You seem to be interested in this system, I would suggest you fly a Dragon Link, I think you would be amazed and happy at the new world of FPV this system would open up for you.

1. Hold Button on TX down, and power on TX until you get a flashing green LED ( You MUST have flashing green LED ! )

2. Turn on Receiver.

3. Wait 30 seconds, do not touch anything, just wait... Ignore all indications from ESC or anything else, just wait...

4. Turn off RC Transmitter. Wait 10 seconds

5. Turn on RC Transmitter, your receiver should come to life

Follow the above steps EXACTLY. It should work if nothing is wrong inside your plane. IF the above procedure does not work, take the RX out of the plane, and connect 1 servo and power it with just an RX battery, and do the above procedure. This way, you know weather the problem is in the plane, or the system.

Mike
No the plane works fine, because when i use my turnigy reciever all the servos and motor moves but i will try to wait here is a video of me doing binding.

You should really have the equipment all powered off to make conections .
Your speedy is making that sound i think because it needs the throttle channel reversed mabye ?
Follow Mikes advise exactly.....in your video you had the speedy powered all the time.

You also need hold the button down AS you turn it on....not after you have powered it up.
As i understand it doing it after is for failsafe setting.
I was showing that it turns green. But noticed it was blinking green

Sounds like the ESC is beeping because it lost the signal from the receiver. Disconnect the battery when swapping receivers and try again.

It was one of the first things fixed in the firmware when the RDOSD G5 came out. It might of only been a G5 issue.

So I tried out my new DL Tx with my plane and....

...still get interference on the 1.3ghz video. Same horizontal bars that scroll through the video just like my old DL without filtering. Don't know why it would have the bars still if the new DL has a low pass filter on it...

To balance my critique I should say that the support is good much of the time and the replacement policy is excellent. And DragonLink does give you long range, no question about it. But I do stand by every point of my critique, which I backed up by facts.

I don't agree that selling new modules is more important than fixing the documentation.

I do use DragonLink since one year as suggested by my post above:

I myself tried to use the (generous) referral program in Feb 2 and emailed reminders at Apr 24, May 17 and Jul 25 before giving up on getting the extra receiver.

I get interference in the received video in spite of getting a new, filtered Tx module.

Might not be the DL. I run 1.3 with the DL and have crystal clear video.

I recently bought a DragonLink system and am very happy with it. I fly on 1280 Mhz on a Quadcopter and in an Easystar and have no problems. The product is an awesome product and has given me piece of mind flying.
