It doesn't help. It's a problem with the cheap digital display video Rxs. They pick up
interference either directly on the 433Mhz primary, or very very close to it.
SAW filter on the IF doesn't have any noticeable effect.

I did notice that the RangeLink TX does interfere with my cheap Sunsky 1280 MHz video RX. This is a documented issue with any UHF system. I guess it's time to by two Lawmate video receivers.

Next is to range test and then maiden!

Shipping was fast and Sid delivered as advertised. It looks to be a very nice product.

I'll report back after my first flight.

The Lawmate video Rx works very well as it has good front end filtering. You may also want to try one of these new products, http://www.readymaderc.com/store/ind...oducts_id=1020

I did a range check and a LOS test flight and the system worked great. My RSSI basically didn't drop below about 98% on a 0 - 100% scale flying out to about 600' LOS. The RangeLink system seems to work great.

I need to do a bit more work on my ground station and it'll be FPV time!

Bottom line is I'm very happy with both the product and service.

Sid,
Will the RL system I ordered today have the latest TX 1.27 and RX 1.24 firmware and does it have the latest hardware, made after 03/12?

I assume it will but I forgot to ask this in the email.

I am wanting to step into UHF, but one thing has been holding me back. I have been searching left and right and can't find an answer to this question...

Can multiple UHF systems be used at the same time within proximity to each other? This would include 2 of the same type (both rangelink, or both EzUHF, etc.) or 2 of different types (one of each).

The reason I ask is my father-in-law and I want to get UHF systems, but they need to be compatible at the same time/place.

I am asking in this thread because I am seriously considering the RangeLink system.

Yes, multiple systems can be used together.
There was what many consider a bug in early (before this year) DL systems that would cause
them to step on each other and sometimes even other UHF systems, but generally
speaking most of them will play ok together. Not at the scale of 2.4ghz RC though (don't
have the bandwidth to do spread spectrum).

With Rangelink you need to do an advanced binding on both Tx's to change their default
id (the seed for their pseudo random hopping sequence) so they won't step on each other.

I sure wish I could get a reliable RSSI reading when using my Eagle Tree OSD Pro. I've tried both with and without the buffer, and no luck, RSSI just bounces all over the place. Anyone have any ideas? I have measured voltage out of the pin to be correct. I'm only running one line into the center pin of temp one on the elogger. Also have a ferrite bead wrapped about 15 times.

Any ideas? Maybe I need to use the RSSI buffer from eagletree and downgrade the firmware on the rangelink receiver? .............or just give up lol?
