Testing video transmission using a long range 900MHz setup on a big wooden tricopter. I notice I was still flying LOS though.

The quality is useless for recording but totally usable for FPV. The camera & Tx are temporarily powered from the main battery. Still waiting for my stabilised voltage regulator (buck-boost a.k.a SEPIC) which should reduce the noise by a lot, also need to put the Rx antenna on a tripod of some kind. This HobbyKing Tx seems to cut off sharply at around 12V so you can't reliably power it from a bare 3S LiPo.

The 1.5W Tx was running without its radiator/case which is heavier than the Tx itself. It can normally get pretty hot but was running surprisingly cool here mounted in the prop downwash.

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