Nice menI was 175 feet high (however 600 feet over sea level) - I feel that a higher altitude would have been beneficial.
It was very gusty - I am going to change the dampers to black 50 as I am getting jello in the wind with the 5.4mm lens. I like the 5.4mm lens as there is hardly any fisheye.
Hey DBS any need for RX improvement after the tx we are putting on?
I did the install, no dramas.
A couple of things I did a little differently.
I decided that I did not want the output connectors on the top surfaces or the TX/extender as when I eventually sell / upgrade the filled holes will not be as obvious.
I also routed the extender wires under the circuit board to pop up next to the connection points.
The spongy shield in the extender tears very easily along with the rubber light blockers.
I also de-burred the bracket a little as it had rough edges that would have scrapped the extender.
Also its essential that there is no debris left inside the TX that could clog up the sticks.
I used hot melt glue to fix the cable down in the TX.
Also the right angle connectors must go on the antenna panel or you will find you trying to connect male to male connectors.
Just waiting for the weather to improve now.....

SOMEBODY MODDED MY MOD!!!
GREAT work sir... there's more than one way to skin a cat!!!
Cool thanks Mohan will doThe lens on the Go Pro is screwed on by removing the original lens. It is not difficult to remove the original lens but as it has 'glue' it needs a considerable amount of force to 'crack' the lens open. You do this by either completely taking apart the Go Pro or popping off the lens shroud which is the faster but not so elegant way. Once the lens is off it is a matter of screwing and focussing the replacement lens in until it is focussed. Replacement lenses are between $99 to $150 and have various focal lengths - 5.4mm is a nice sweet spot. Some places charge a lot more and have a bigger online presence and reputation. I have worked out that the expensive retailers are supplying similar or identical lenses. Have a look on google / youtube.
