get the ezuhf, its so easyyyyyy
Yeah, that's why I got it. I haven't seen anything bad written about it. I'd also like to get an EzOSD next. Looks like I can just plug and play with the EzUHF. For an extra $9 or whatever, I can get a cable for RSSI info. RSSI shows me my signal strength on the OSD, right?
Yep no calibration needed, plug n play.

Thanks for all of the input! I've got my EzUHF installed and did a LOS flight with it tonight. I don't have an EzOSD yet. How exactly can I measure my signal strength? Also, I have my 1.3 GHz video RX mounted on a tripod. Would it cause problems to mount my EzUHF transmitter on the same tripod a few inches away from the video Rx?
Yep the only way to get signal strength is with the EzOSD, welcome to proprietary hardware.
Also interference with your 1.3 receiver might happen depending on the rx. Separating your tx from the rx would work well.
My video Rx is one of the Lawmate receivers with the saw filter installed. I think I'd rather just hang it off of the back of my radio. The antenna should be pointed straight up, correct? Also, when I have it plugged into the back of my Futaba 7C, that disables the 2.4GHz the radio normally puts out, right? I ordered some of the clips from RMRC to attach it to my radio handle, but the clips are nowhere near big enough. They were only a dollar or so. Anybody have any ideas for hanging it off of my radio handle so that it's easy to remove?
You just need a mictronics ppm to analog converter and you can have signal quality from EZUHF on pretty much any OSD that supports RSSI
