  1. Ok after some unsuccessful small scale testing yesterday moving the antennas i kind of gave up but this afternoon i thought I would try again. the Pics show my results, quite why i didnt move it just a little further apart yesterday I simply dont know. So my new question is...... How easy is it to extend the Heli Rx Antenna to the tail? All thoughts welcome.
  2. sorry yet another silly question. If I got a 35mhz 6ch heli Tx & Rx would i have any issues for eg. interference, digital servos not compatible etc, or would it just swap in, proper job?? thankis again.
  3. Yeah the reason i bought the 1.2ghz video system was because of its cheapness, spur of the moment buy. I then ordered the 2.4ghz system as i thought it would be a, more legal & b, easyier to boost in a coutry where the 2.4ghz range is common. Anyway its good to know about the 2.4ghz video issues, I am planning to get my self a plane eventually and perhaps ill get that in the traditional radio frequency (think its 35mhz here) and run the 2.4ghz video ive ordered with that. What sort of range is possible on the traditional Rc frequencies by the way and are they easy to boost. Right now I
  4. hey thanks for all these things to try, couple of questions first, I cant set anything by channel as far as i can tell, I only have tuning knob on the Rx and on the transmitter theres a small screw, is that for tuning2? I did try fiddling with it but only made tuning it in harder. secondly in the UK trhe 1.2ghz video requires a license which is why i wanted the 2.4 ghz system, will this really not work? if so what other alternatives are out there, seems to me i may be throwing my money out the window on my present course.
  5. Hi thanks for replying. Heres some pics, I basically got everything and simply stuck it on where it fitted at the time, no real thought went into it. to answer your question I fitted a small 2cell 7.4v lipo to the bottom of the heli to power the video system which is rated at 9v, basically i didnt want to attach a 9v battery or use the 3cell lipo that runs the heli for fear of over powering it. as i say im a complete newbie to fpv but im eager to learn. Any comments on 2.4ghz video would be appreciated too. thanks in advance.
  6. I have a esky Belt cp v2 2.4ghz heli. I mounted an 800mw 1.2ghz video camera and transmitter to it. If i run the camera transmitter the range of my heli goes down to 10 metre!?! Without it it goes hundreds of meters. Im a newbie, can anyone help pretty please. By the way, i get no video interferance at all. oh yeah also i have ordered a 2.4ghz video transmitter reciever which will arrive at the end of the month, might that solve all my woes? thanks in advance.
