Another Podcast and Video

Hey everyone! The RCGroups team joined forces again for a discussion about what's happening in RC! Since Matt and Jason are both building Connex systems we discussed that quite a bit. I asked all the question an HD noob might have. We also talked about some new planes and event coverage we added to our sites.

Jason,

I've been using the Connex ProSightHD on my FixWing (airplanes) for about 3 months now,
its seems I'm the ONLY one doing this constantly.

Things to consider coming from 1.3 video Airplane usage.

ProSightHD has no Sound-audio, this was a bummer for me!
The ProSightHD has its own OSD, very basic but its all you need.
Biggest factor is you have to accept the fact that you cannot go more then 3miles
on a ProSightHD system (yet). There is a HD FPV system out there
that is commercial which cost $10,000+ just for the HD LIVE video feed.
There is member here that sells it to his customers commercially.

There are only 2 FPV vendors that sell upgraded HD antennas for the ProSightHD,
and they are 10000x worth it. (TrueRC and Banan). More and more coming and
I'm waiting.

The ProSightHD from the start was really designed for very small range miniQuads, and
that is 100% fact. They don't care for us Airplane FPV'ers...ie...its been 6 months
and there is still no longer wire from Cam to VideoTx.

Nice! Should be fun in the Mini Drak I'm building. I hope I made a good choice with the VAS linear antenna system and can safely fly in a large field wherever I want. I'll have the Vector in there to take over in case anything goes wrong.
