Thinking of getting myself the updated cyclops osd, cloverleaf antennas and dragon link2 for Christmas. I've been good, Santa agrees. This would give me return to home auto pilot and endless range for my radio controller for my purposes. I honestly don't want to fly far away, I just want to go high. Absolutely no desire to swoop over the city. Just want to go to the clouds...

I haven't updated my NAZA yet. Afraid something is going to go wrong and prevent me from flying.

I'll be out for sure.

Would like to try your goggles to see the difference between base version and dominators.

I posted here about your experiance and it started a fairly sprited discussion. iBCrazy is well respected in FPV and suggests starting with a 72 Mhz setup. Most everyone agrees that a 1.5 watt Tx causes many more problems then it solves.

I'm no expert for sure but it seems to me a 500 Mw Tx is the best of both worlds with just enough power to not cause issues with on-board components.

Interesting discussion, I'll have to ponder it more. Thank!
So if I show up with UHF, are you obligated to tackle me and remove the equipment from my possession, because your not suppose to let me use it.

Ha! Funny read.
The requirement are over built range with cost not a huge concern.
Of course not sure how to do it...
Lots of people are accomplishing this so I should as well some how

Also keep in mind 72 MHz may not be a good option for me as I don't have a modular radio. That and i spent $500 buying a 2.4MHz radio already. Something like Dragon link just plugs into my 2.4 MHz

If I was a guessing man I would just say I flew out of range radio last week.
It's hard to say with those goggles on and I know I need to be careful much more careful next time
