It will NOT work in conjunction with 2.4 gigs equipment. It is itself 2.4 gigs.

You guys that are really interested in FPV flying, should wander over to the FPV forum here on rcgroups: https://www.rcgroups.com/video-piloting-fpv-rpv-469/ Lots of great information.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to start at the FPV safety thread: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=616667

Have you tried this FPV unit with a UK 2.4 system then?

HL needs to have it so that you can order 2.4 or 1.2 which is legal in the UK. That would eliminate the problems for at least the 2.4 ghz crowd across the big water

It was developed in Australia, which also has 10mw limit on the 2.4ghz radios - and we know it doesnt work with 2.4ghz r/c.

Just as a note on range video - the 900mhz systems are actually illegal

Ah, fair enough if it has been tested with 10mw systems. I was just curious as the review suggests it is not compatible because of the 100mw output of the US 2.4 as it swamps the FPV, so I was wondering if this swamping would not occur with just a 10mw or so DX7.

So the 900mw systems are illegal everywhere then?

How likely is it I would get airsick or disoriented from the view? I get a little woozy If I play StarFox too aggressively on the TV at home:-P

To get a bigger range you need to get a higher gain aerial , i have an EU power setting dx6i then when i had my 2.4ghz camera set up, i switched it on, yes it stops the signal, its a shame but i am sure someone will be able to get a high gain 5.8ghz aerial, does 2.4ghz radios have worse range than 35mhz or 72mhz?

In the FPV FAQ - For the US the 910mhz channel on Range Video's 900mhz units falls under ATV according to Wikipedia .... 909.0000 - 915.0000 MHz ATV, Don't know about the UK

so you could have the goggles 20 foot away from your 2.4ghz tranny and it would work? i take it it screws up wifi hotspots and wireless routers and stuff like that?

My nameless 500mw 2.4ghz video TX will wipe out my 802.11 access and bluetooth headset within close proximity. Makes it interesting when you're testing equipment and need to look something up on the laptop or call someone.

Actually, channel 1 (which operates on 910MHz) of their "900MHz" video transmitter is legal as long as you have your Amateur Radio License (HAM operator). Legal operating frequencies on that bad are 902 to 928 MHz.

Keep in mind, this is for the US. Rules may (and probably do) vary for other countries. Here is a useful chart for HAM frequency bands: http://www.arrl.org/FandES/field/reg...ands_color.pdf

I've got 200mW and 1500mW transmitters, both on 2.4GHz, and yes they will kill my wifi in my house when I power them up. The 200 isn't as bad as the 1500 though.
