Question

1.3 vid and vector


Hi Guy's, I am trying out 1.3 vid for the first time as I am after a bit more range when flying with just goggles and single cp antenna for those times I am not running full ground station. I have 5.8 and 2.3/4 but need a bit more range, hence trying 1.3. I am aware of some probs where up against with 1.3 such as servo jitter(running analog servos in the test plane and getting almost none, so good there. But I am wondering what is considered acceptable as far as sat count goes, I imagine the more the better! I am not sure what I normally get, and so far I have not had it outside of my shed...that has a tin roof, and I am getting between 9 and 11 inside, I have about 2 feet between the vid ant and sat Rx. Just wondering what is acceptable, and any other advice.

Lucky you, I don't get ANY gps lock inside my metal roofed house.

I've flown Vector with 1.3G video on 3 different aircraft and have never had a GPS problem. My GPS units are anywhere from 12" to 4/5" from the 400mW 1.3 VTX.

I set my min GPS sats for home look to 5 or 6. I typically get that in 1-2min after taking the model outside. I typically see 0 sats, then 5-6, then maybe no more until I get up in the air when I'll see 8-11. I'd consider anything above 5 to be flyable.
