Thread: Theoretical range with TBS recommended gear

    Theoretical range with TBS recommended gear

    I’m trying to figure out the theoretical range of the TBS gear I recently purchased (TBS Zephyr with the “Deluxe solution”). I say theoretically, because I still have the range test pending. The kit I’m using is the recommended TBS one, as follows:

    R/C System:
    - EzUHF Tx at 600mW with a SRH-771 EzUHF Transmitter Antenna
    - 8ch EzUHF Diversity Receiver (with offset antennas)

    FPV System:
    - Lawmate 2.4GHz Rx (Tuned), connected to a 14dbi Patch Antenna (with about 20cm cable)
    - Tuned Lawmate Tx

    Thanks for your feedback,

    Have you flown much Fpv or range before buying this setup?
    If your plan is to fly long range right from the get go best order another full kit now for a spare.... You're going to need it

    I think this setup is able to give about 30-40 km of range, probably even more.
