Excellent spot to test the video feed and radio control range. Really pushing the limit here, flying trough a thick tree corridor and trying to stay low and fast. I didn’t have the best vantage point, I basically stood half way down the road and tried to be somewhat in line of sight, but the road curves so not quite possible.
I was impressed with the results, barely any breakup. Started to get some bad breakup all the way down the one end at the paved entrance. Everything else was perfect !
Video shows both cameras, the onboard HD GoPro and also my FPV camera feed recorded with my goggles, so you can see the reception quality with the range.
Using the AKK Tech Q3 VTX, switchable from 25mw to 800mw. I’m using 800mw here and my Eachine EV800D Diversity goggles with some aftermarket antennas. Aomway 5dbi RHCP antenna on the VTX and on my goggle B channel, and the Aomway 14dbi panel antenna on the A channel on my goggles.
Radio is the FlySky i6X with micro A6B receiver on the quad via SBUS.
Very basic, and very good !!
