    Video link explained!

    I get questions about RF communication (usually the video link) all the time. Thus I put this FAQ together for everyone to watch, learn and enjoy. Even if you think you know it all, you probably ought to watch these videos.

    RF Communication basics


    The video system explained


    Antenna system


    Ground stations explained

    Nice addition Alex - and a very necessary one - as you'd told me a few weeks ago, basic RF theory is a classic cause of confusion and mistakes for beginners...

    Alex, watched all these the other day. You are inspiration! Thank you.

    I do have a question though, "why don't we have HD FPV?"

    Considering technical, philosophical and economical issues.

    Best regards,

    this is why i always look for antennas made by alex, and on the off chance that he doesn't make them, antennas that he recommends (like those from hugo)

    Brain

    Just want to introduce myself. I am Big Ben from North Carolina. In my youth I was a big RC car hobbyist with my peak being an RC10 carbon fiber from Team Associated. Recently I have toyed around with some toy helicopters and even a Dynam E-Razor 450 carbon fibre and really enjoy the flying thing. I just got a toy quadcopter and am really enjoying flying it around indoors and out. I now plan on building a larger quad between the 400 and 550 sizes. I am looking at the QAV540 and the Cinetank MK2-L for my build. Thanks for this great site and I hope to keep learning from you guys! Good Vibes!
