    a 10dB attenuator on the output will get you right about where you want, but a quality one likely costs more than a 100mW VTx. (Link is to example, not necessarily a recommendation.)

    I've been out over 8 miles with it using a pepperbox receiver antenna without a tracker. I turned around due to battery, not video. It's a nice, clean picture for me, and I'm flying near urban...

    Just printed the parts & did the flat wing mod this weekend, it works awesome! I was able to get the old parts out by sliding a thin flat blade screwdriver between the foam & plastic to break the...

    The dual 5.8GHz channels will work, I do it all the time using ch1 & ch8 on a given band. Using a 600mW 5.8GHz VTx on the plane and 7 turn helical antennas on the ground, I've been out over 5 miles...

    Nice, clean install! I'm surprised you didn't do the flat wing mod while you had it stripped down.

    The filter & ring are good for future builds for the power to the video transmitter, particularly on longer wire runs in big planes. The toroid I linked is likely a bit large, but was one I found...

    Well, you can add an LC filter and a toroid ring (needs about 7 wraps to be effective) to the power supply for the camera/VTx setup, then turn the volume down. Or . . . just turn the volume down? ...

    I'm still on firmware v.1.67. It works for me, I don't need the various "features" like lua scripts on the Taranis, I just want to fly.

    Do you have a power meter like the RF Explorer to test the...

    Something is wrong, I fly from a college field saturated in RF noise, with mountain top antenna forests all around. Every house has a 900MHz transmitter on the elec meter. There are military...

    Sometimes changing firmware causes Tx to revert to 868MHz, may wanna confirm it's on the right freq.

    That's also called a U.Fl connector, you can find adapter cables in various lengths on eBay and vendors such as Aloft Hobbies. Just search ufl to sma or similar.

    Eagle is great cam, good choice, you need to upgrade your antennas if you haven't already. That transmitter has a linear polarized, the goggles have a circular polarized. Replace all because the...

    Oh, I'm with you on the reliable components! Plus, I like the ability to tune the setup for efficiency to match my style of flying & planned use. The NT motor & prop are hard to beat, but the rest...

    Braking is braking no matter the aircraft, it is accomplished by applying reverse thrust (current) to the motor equal to the velocity of the aircraft in order to either hold the prop stationary, or...

    Actually, nearly all quadcopter ESCs can be programmed to both have the brake on as well as LVC off using the BLHeli Suite. It takes some effort to learn, and not all ESCs are compatible. Some can...

    Many replaced the aileron servo due to it acting strange, and some crashed because they didn't, so that's a good call. Nobody seems to know how to set the ESC brake, most just replace the stocker...

    If it's a steady deflection, then I suspect it's a setup or output mapping issue, not interference. The servo breakout board is poorly labled, they are just four different outputs, not just...

    The EagleEyes has a gain adjust screw for the 2nd input to match signal strength with the 1st one, perhaps adjusting that will help.

    Extending the antenna cable 10' would likely cause some issues, that length plus any connections will cause some loss. It's better to extend the video cable, can you put a receiver with the antenna...
