Yes, wenn Crossfire TX sit on Tripod u can use Yagis whit Tracker and a big battery for full Power.
Ok Yagis maby dont need really, but CFTX on Tripod is much better, the Antenna is higher and external battery.
When I sit on the chair is the antenna 40-50 cm over ground and shield the antenna behind me, so Crossfire on Tripod has some advantages.
But has only the disadvantage it without repeater it with a long cable(10m) at the trainerport.

Did you flash the CPPM firmware from FrSky? See https://quadmeup.com/ppm-output-on-f...-sb-receivers/
As a interesting side note the other day I had my cell phone in my sweatshirt pocket and got a incoming text. When that happened my taranis started humming and clicking for 10 seconds or so. It was obvious that the phone was emitting a powerful enough signal that the taranis was picking up. Makes you wonder about the device you hold up to your head. :^)
My video post of the 28km was just a couple pages back:
Thanks for the reply. I also did this flight on the mini talon. I'm afraid my crossfire might mess with my 1.3 so I use 5.8.
Version : 151118 / UpdateTime : 2015-11-18 = X4R_LBT_build151118 is for X4R and X4RSB with CPPM function already integrated<< whit the problem(Video)
Version : 150729 / UpdateTime : 2015-07-29 = X4R-X4RSB-CPPM-EU Version<< can not bind the X4RSB.
Whit X6R and L9R no problem whit Horus, they work good.
@RedSky: with the version from the video, could you test if normal servo output works on the X4R? Just to verify correct binding.
Which mode do you use for binding?
I also remember that there was one frsky firmware version with strange PPM behaviour ...
Personally I only use D4RII receivers, is that an option for you?
I'm using my crossfire on 915MHz, and video on 2305MHz.
I only had space to fly out to about 4km this morning, but video was still crystal clear. Before, I was having bad video noise starting at just under 1km, and had to turn back at about 2.5km. I haven't tried the TBS notch filters yet, but I assume they would work well too. Both types of filters claim to reduce 915MHz by about 30db. I wanted to use a high-pass instead, because I also want it to block 433MHz and 1280MHz.
Why not a highpass with a higher frequency, you could have had around 60db attenuation on 900MHz (?)
Sometimes when disconnecting the lipo from the quad the Crossfire goes into Find Mode. What am I doing doing incorrectly to make it go into Find Mode?
