    Goof Proof Patch?

    Vertical polarization. Circular polarization is used for satellite communications (Hams). Don't remember for sure (lost too many brain cells due to ageing), but I don't think there is such a thing as linear polarization that pertains to RF waves.
  2. Doesn't work on the bands available to us anyway. It's cell phone bands only.
  3. 800mw may be swamping your RX. 1.2 + 1.2ghz = 2.4ghz. Thats the second harmonic of your vid Tx...
  4. Did ya manage to catch the 3D TVs? Maybe some day they'll be available in FPV goggles. 3D FPV combat.. YEAH!!

    Happy New Year

    Hope y'all had a great Christmas as well. Only about 6 hrs before I can break out the bottle. Hope y'all have a great 365.
  6. EagleTree has a new item out for a diversity ground station that might be of good use for $89. Just ordered one. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1048046

    T-28D parkzone BNF

    That is probably correct. All model aircraft have some degree of down thrust. Most also have some right (IIRC) thrust built in as well.
  8. Multiply dimensions by 2.66 & you'll get there.
  9. Any wireless cam from Radio Shack or similar store would do. The battery life would be the problem unless an ac adaptor could be used. No ac outlet handy? Where would you need to mount the cam?
  10. It won't cause any problems with the engine. It's more likely the engines spark ignition would interfere with the co-pilot and all other eledctronics.
  11. Why not just have the starter keylock changed so he can't start the car? Or, put in a hidden switch cutting the starter/ignition circuit off so he can't start it?

    3.3 voltage reg for Aw633

    If you're not good at soldering, I would practice until you get it down pat. A blob or cold joint of solder doesn't mean much at 72mhz, but it can often be the the difference between success and failure at these frequencies.

    Another FPV Vendor is Issued FCC Citation.

    Just a thought went through my mind. Maybe there will be no cheap gear pretty soon, but very expensive stuff only available through a limited bunch of suppliers. 1,000 % profit or more seems to linger in the dark recesses of my cranium. Is it not so that there are maybe only 2 or 3 mfgrs of the RF chips used in these devices and can be gotten for somewhere around $3 each in single quantities?
