Range of radio controllers

Recommended Posts

Well, after all that urging about range of wireless video transmissions, how far can a typical PCM radio controller (say, JR 9x) actually go without calling failsafe? (With antenna fully extracted, of course) I'm just wondering, if we are not able to control the choppers, there is no use of how powerful the wireless transmissions are.

Right, I should have said that 5 miles can be achieved if one is paranoid :blink: about getting far away with standard RC gear. 5 miles is my max vertical range, in low level flight I only let my model fly 2 miles away.

We run on 35Mhz here. To be fair 1 mile is my minimum I get, after that it gets unreliable. And I am talking about 1 mile across ground not vertical. Some days are better than others ! Local conditions ...........
