I'm running a sound installation using RC cars run from FPV perspective see http://dualplover.com/vinylrally/ i'm a sound artist and have only been using RC and FPV equipment for a short time and am having trouble getting a good picture. basically the images are flickering alot and i get occasion drop out which the large screen monitors i use don't like, see the video on vimeo below from my last installation in frankfurt. https://vimeo.com/45382669 i have been using the following gear for FPV Tx http://www.iftrontech.com/product_info.php?cPath=46&products_id=128 Rx http://www.iftrontech.com/product_info.php?cPath=48&products_id=112 the Tx has the following attenna http://www.iftrontech.com/product_info.php?cPath=39_68&products_id=180 and the Rx two of these http://www.iftrontech.com/product_info.php?cPath=39_68&products_id=122 the installation is typically housed indoors originally i had these antenna http://www.iftrontech.com/product_info.php?cPath=39_68&products_id=121 on both my Tx and Rx but upgraded to the above hoping to fix my problem but it still persists. the Tx are mounted on thie sides on the cars see (orange led shows position of transmitter) 429949_341841285868342_1514765831_n.jpg the cars are placed indoors in a track made form beercrates and timber here is the layout of the last track made 575139_406271779425292_1813116209_n.jpg the Rx were mounted onto of the wall in the upper right mid section of the track (start of upper level) basically on the other side of the two crates sticking out behind the consoles 554857_408936305825506_2121299235_n.jpg here is a short video of the Rx (posted to show iftron another problem i'm having with one unit which keeps switching off, but thats another story) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsImf911I6c&feature=g-upl i have plenty of other photos showing various set ups and room if that helps http://www.facebook.com/vinylrally/photos now from reading some of these pages and other places i'm told its not the gear its the antenna! even so i need to solve the problems i'm having so would like advice on antenna placement, possible alternative antennas, or a complete new set up. one vendor is trying to sell me a digital set up for US$10k saying that only digital equipment will fix the problems caused by 'Ground Plane Effect & Multipathing' however this digital gear uses compression formats which have inherit latency issues of about a 1/4 second which when racing around the track will make driving at speed difficult. what i need is a system that dose audio and video has no or little latency has a small mountable Tx works well with surface applications and indoors any thoughts appreciated lucas
