    Fox sports in my goggles

    So was flying at my local today on 5.8 I was getting very poor video so I changed channels only to find fox sport soccer match playing in my fatsharks !!!

    What was the score?
    Everything on my FPV craft must be hot swappable, just like Voltron.

    There are some room to room video senders that run on 5.8ghz. I bet that's what happened... someone in a nearby home was watching the game.

    I powered up my 900mhz system in the basement of the house I was renting right in the town of White Salmon, WA and got a nice clear B&W image of somebodies living room! I could see some guy watching TV and a toddler running around the living room. It looked like the camera had been set up on a shelf, looking out into the room. I suspect it was a baby monitor. And now that I think about it, I realize I never even thought about hooking up my earbuds and seeing if there was audio present, as I never fly with audio active (who wants to listen to electric motor whine combined with random wind buffeting sounds?).

    I used my 900mhz patch and walked around my house, trying to use body blocking to at least get a general direction where the signal was coming from. No luck. I think maybe a patch antenna has too wide of a beamwidth with too big of side and back lobes.

    Never saw the signal again after that evening.

    Then find out what system they're using! I lose signal with ONE tree between me and my Blackout, they might be onto something!
