    So basically, FPV as a hobby is now done in the United States. The 107 drone operator certificate is too onerous for anyone not interested in commercial use, meaning the FAA has effectively killed...

    I strongly recommend you consider 1.3ghz (not 1.2, 1.3.) with a low pass filter for your Vtx over 5.8ghz. You can run MUCH less power and get far better signal penetration. Also, you won't need...

    Pretty sure anything in the 900mhz band is illegal in the US. Also, it is crazy expensive. Over $300 just to kit out ONE plane (TX and RX). Another $120+ for each additional plane (RX only). No...

    not 100% sure, but I'm guessing that the overall power reduction is for two reasons:

    1. To prevent user input from destabilizing the craft in Atti or GPS mode. IE: The computer needs to have...

    The trick is that you have to have the dampening material between the motor and frame and then ALSO between the screw head and frame, so that neither one transmits vibration into the frame.

    Thus,...

    72mhz fhss. Why is this not a thing?

    Ok, I will be the first to admit I'm no radio tech. But what I don't get is why don't we have a 72mhz FHSS module radio system available for FPV?

    I know UHF is "the thing" and the long antennas...
