Performing a range test, I only had 12 feet with the factory antenna so I started unplugging things and finally got to the camera. With the whole system powered except the camera, I was able to get 50 feet on a range test.

My question is, is there another 4K split camera plays nice on 433Mhz?
I was having same issue but moving the DL antenna away from the camera solved my problem.Couple of inches should work.

Separation is not the issue. Camera n the nose, antenna is on the tail, and receiver is only 5 inches in front of the antenna. Airframe is a XUAV Clouds.

Hi Croc End,

Yes it does ! The new Micro receier works great with the older V2 transmtitter, but you must flas the V2 firmware onto the Micro Receiver, then calibrate it in order for it to work...

You can get them at www.getfpv.com

Hi Mgrimes1907

You need to lengthen the fuselage so that you can get more seperation I use the RunCam Split 3 Micro and like it a lot, it is tiny, light, and quality of video is good, but not tested it for interference at really long range yet. I can do a test and let you know if you are interested in this device.

How do you like the XUAV Clouds ??? How does it compare to the Believer ???

Split cameras are always going to be noisy due to the ribbon cable comming out of the guts. A really clean RF camera is the RunCam 2. The inside of the case is shielded and is the cleanest of the FPV cameras that I have tried. You can use it without a battery if you are concerned about weight.

I have replaced the Caddx with a Foxeer that I had on a Quad ind I get my noise floor average down to around to around 82 or 83 in the spectrum analyzer in DL GUI with the TX turned off. With the Caddx, the noise floor average was about 78. I wouldn't think that little bit would make a difference, but then again, I have flown this setup 25 miles witht the Caddx.

Believer is A little more docile in the air, only because of the size difference I believe.

How are you making out on yours? Get ant time to work on it?

Still having problems connecting telemetry data from an F765. I purchased a new transmitter from DL and undated the MavToPassthrough onto the bluetooth/wifi module. The next step is to connect to the TX hot spot. I see the hotspot and when I try to connect it asks for the password. I type in DragonLink but it says incorrect password and won't let me connect to http://192.168.4.1

What am I doing wrong?

Do a range test and see if you get the same range with it installed. If you do, then you are good.

Did you use admin as the username?

Try a different client device if you're having trouble with the current one.
