Look here and you can see what a lot of folks are doing . I am using the ITELITE now but was using the FPVLR'S.Thats some impressive numbers! I've got to look into that...
Many thanks!Look here and you can see what a lot of folks are doing . I am using the ITELITE now but was using the FPVLR'S.
A lot of info in here . Remember though if ya start getting real involved in doing these mod's it will keep ya busy and it is addicting
Thanks Hughie! With your info I think I know the general distance I should stay around when flying (until I get the FPLVR setup).It depends which Phantom you are discussing. Assuming from the thread title, a P2 Non vision ?, the control range specified is 1km. I can vouch for this because I went to failsafe briefly at the 1025m point as I was trying to turn back. However this distance will vary with enviromental conditions. You may get more or less.
As far a FPV, that depends what kit you fit to your P2. If you fit FPVLR antennae you will do quite well.
I think the spec for P2V+ is 400m (CE), 800m (FCC) - 5.8GHz, and for P2 1000m - 2.4GHzStandard UK P2V+ V3, I've had 1700 feet showing and still had control, but there have been flights where the control link is lost for a few seconds before regaining at little over 1000 feet. In all cases the camera link has continued to work.
More than I need, but I can see the appeal of the Itelite
Similar for me too. I have had the FPV Helical with Spironets and a 25mw IRC vTx outperform the control signal.In an urban environment, I got about 800-900m max on my phantom 2 stock radio.
My FPV video feed from my 600mw tx exceed my radio range when I am using the patch and helical antenna on my black pearl monitor.
