    Serge,

    Depends on the situation. In my case, I always fly on 150/200mW with a good RSSI when flying long range. Now I've the possibility to switch to "panic" mode (or "Ohhh Shit mode ) when the RSSI drops or when the fail save kicks in. To flip the switch to 2W to bring my baby home....

    I see... Why not to run 2W mode the entire duration of flight? Only because it drains the battery? Thanks.

    Keep in mind in the U.S. 2 watt is not legal for control/telecommand.

    Because all of the higher power modes are get out of trouble modes, so if you run at 2W all the time you have no 'oh shit' mode anymore, it is clear you're new to all this.

    Well mine arrived safe and sound.
    Must say its nicely made inside with a big heatsink screwed to the outer case.
    A couple of things worth noting, put a thin nut on inside and outside of antenna socket.
    Otherwise the socket will unscrew when you remove your antenna.
    Also be careful where you take the batt power from.
    I had mine from the Futaba trainer port as with my 600 mw version.
    First time I flicked to pan blaster mode the Futaba burnt a trace out on the circuit board.
    Now soldered power wires direct to switch.
    3 power levels on a 3 position switch, normal mode, O shit mode and pan blaster mode.
    These give 470 mw, 870 mw and 1520 mw.
    Not quite the 2W but who cares, that will do for me.

    Word of caution to the folks buying these, at 2W it consumes a lot of power (typically >5W) which the majority of radios *cannot* supply through the trainer port. This is logical and needs no explanation to the technically inclined, but for those less tech savvy, power these from a separate LiPo or make sure your radio can handle the load.

    Thanks for the word of caution Sander and for making such nice products. Would not use anything else.

    Where can you purchase the 2w version? I don't see it listed on any of the main websites.
