    The camera that you've posted require 12V, not 5V. So you don't need UBEC for powering it, you can power it straight from 3S lipo. But your VTX LawMate needs 5V. So you can power it from ESC or UBEC, depends on how much current you have left there.

    Hi guys,

    I had a problem with an 8dbi patch on 2.4 (you can see the problem here: http://fpvlab.com/forums/showthread....agnose-problem). Someone suggested to test for continuity. Now for me very noob question: how do I check the patch for continuity? Should I measure ohms in the sma connector? What reading should I get?

    That said, if you have a park flyer radio (like a DX6i) that is not suitable for FPV either.
    The DX6i is a full range 2.4ghz system, not a park flyer transmitter like the DX6 or DX5

    As stated - the stock dx6i is still not considered suitable for reliable fpv.

    Its not suitable for much of anything. IMO

    That would also disqualify the dx7 (older dx6i) and dx8(newer dsmx dx6i) as they share the same radio transmission gear.
    The only difference is the crappy AR6000 the DX6i comes bundled with.

    What would be the other reason the DX6i wouldn't cut it? Not being a smart-a$$; just trying to learn, as I am building my first rig, and I was planning to use my DX6i with an AR7000 receiver. Either that or my old 72mhz Futaba 6EX with the stock ppm receiver.

    I'm not planning any super long range stuff, just FPV around my flying club. I wouldn't use 2.4ghz anything for long range flights, in my area, as we are surrounded by wifi routers.

    Despite their frequency hopping nature they still suffer more than their share of lockouts and wreck planes.

    Question Range Question

    Yep, I'm the new guy and I'm done collecting all my FPV parts and will start installing this weekend. I'm confident of my set up, BUT, What I need to know is what is my safe range (line of sight) for my Specktrum TX /RX set up with 2.4 ghz and two sat. receivers? If my 5.8 ghz FPV system has a longer range I could get myself in real trouble. Any input would be great.
