    UHF Repeater

    Hi! Anyone tried fpvlongrange UHF Repeater on Spektrum Radios? Does this thing eliminate the 3.5mm jack problem?
    Does it have noticeable delay? Thanks!

    lol... just asked my non-fpver friend, "If you saw this thing sitting somewhere, like in a tall building, what would you think it is?"

    answer: "a bomb"

    It simply accepts a standard PWM servo output, as an input, therefore it's receiver agnostic. It doesn't matter what receiver(s) you're using - any vendor, any vintage, it will work.

    It's best however to persevere a little longer and try to get your UHF system working with your Spektrum DX7S without the need of an intermediate box.



    "A demo of the UHF Repeater in operation. Here it's wired up to the outputs from two different 2.4GHz receivers simultaneously, a Futaba and a Spektrum. Who would have thought you'd ever see these unlikely pair teaming up, eh?! Although the two servos are both connected to the same UHF RX, one is being controlled by a Spektrum DX7 and the other a Futaba 8FG."

    What plane are u planning to fly and how far is your goal?

    Should you answer that question with anything else than 100km or less you may want to reconsider. ..

    I m always up for new ideas though!

    UHF Repeater

    Its just a quad. My problem is not how far, penetration is what I want from uhf.i fly in a jungle lol, 500 meters above trees means 1000 trees to penetrate if I want to fly lower lol.

    I believe that this repeater is used so that any radio will work with Uhf and to use spektrum radio without the need to plug the 3.5mm jack that causes problems. This is not the repeater that you put far far away to extend the range.
