What a flight! Spectacular view from out over the river!
I am now using 2.4GHz RC control (Futaba 10C FASST system), and 900MHz video. Absolutely perfect control link out over the river. The video is very stable also with no glitching like I have seen with the 2.4GHz video systems. The brief video distortion visible in the video out near the golf course was due to shadowing of the plane behind a line of trees. Poor planning on my part. I should have moved down the field a bit so as to not put the trees between the plane and the video receiver.
Some random notes... Was having problems with GPS lock at the time, so the altitude and distance readings are totally off. Also, it was not 50 degrees.. more like 90 that day. I did not have a temp sensor installed yet for some reason the OSD was displaying what it thought was temperature information. lol
Max distance was ~1.4 miles.
