I decided to push the limits of my radio systems today, and of course I chose to do so in familiar territory. And far beyond "LOS" (line of sight). And over the ocean. No big deal, right? I ended up exactly 600 meters away at 50 meters AGL (above ground level), although given the height of the cliffs, I was actually about 60 meters above the waves once I got over the ocean). I'm using the Iftron Mondo Xtreme 5.8 with stock antenna on the copter, and the Iftron YellowJacket 5.8 USB Diversity Receiver on the ground with two of the Iftron 5.8GHz RHCP Patch Vitennas. It was super clear all the way out and back. Check 'em out at iftrontech.com

Full disclosure: I am a happy paying customer of Iftron's, and they have not paid me in any way.

The copter is my Cinestar 8 with 2-axis gimbal and the video camera is the Sony CX760V. Unfortunately, I neglected to balance the camera before this flight (I had recently flown with a different camera) so the video is a little bumpy. I am using the Zeiss Cinemizer glasses with the SmartOSD for my FPV system.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
