I honestly don't think it really puts out 1.5, but I have no way to tell. I have flown with other people using sub 800mW tx's on left / right polarization with some channel separation and had no issues. This is it: http://www.readymaderc.com/store/ind...roducts_id=917

    It was originally sent to me from Mike at Dragonlink when I got my first uhf system a few years ago and didn't know much about what I needed. But, it's served me well.


    I also have a thread for the Chimera HD here if anyone is intersted in build details, and GoBigDale's HD is also in there: http://fpvlab.com/forums/showthread....ild-thread-log

    Chimera "HD" maiden video. Boring, but showcases smooth flight characteristics...

    Have been running this same motor for a few years now regularly. It's a beast.

    Yup, 4s 8,000 zippy with a 100A red brick esc, but any 70A or over would do. It pulls 60A static, but once you're in the air you won't get out of the 40's (possibly 50's if your battery is fresh). I cruised it today at 8A with no issues maintaining altitude or control, but i fly 99.9% of the time at 11A. I pretty much don't touch the throttle unless i need to steeply climb out of something or go way up for some reason.

    Between flying and camping I haven't had much time for video editing lately, but I finally found time to put together the first video in a series of awesome Chimera mountain proximity flights from earlier this summer. Most of this video was filmed with my ill-fated Chimera V2, which I had to use some pretty heavy stabilization in post to take out the constant bouncing. However, my new stabilization method worked really well. Enjoy!
