    I got a chance to test the 2G4 RX modules today in my Dominators V1 and V2. My TBS Tuned Lawmate was transmitting on channel 8. The image was beautiful. Much better than the TBS Groundstation re-transmitting via 5G8. This was clear, smooth, and solid. I did not fly with it due to time restrictions, but I'm impressed. I never liked the quality of the 5G8 retransmission. The direct 2G4 image is beautiful, creamy smooth. The V1 and V2 Dominator images look remarkably the same, except the V2 is larger of course, and perhaps slightly brighter. Can't wait to go flying!

    For the record, I used an IBC Bluebeam antenna set, with the 5-lobe antenna on the goggles using a right angle connector and the 3-lobe on the transmitter.

    Thanks Fat Shark, you have simplified my life!

    Got flights in yesterday afternoon. Tried both goggles and antenna's, worked as expected.
    My go to quad has been a Disco on 5.8. It will be convenient now to grab one of my 2.4 setups without having to worry about dragging the GS out.

    Yes IRC 600 on 5.8 and IRC 700 on 2.4.
    Flew 2 batteries in an area I fly a lot, mostly all over water.
    Didn't get to really stretch the legs of range and obstacles but saw improvement over 5.8 in 2 areas about 1/2 mile out where I have drop-outs with 5.8.

    Will give the 2.4 the long distance test asap. Also have an island I fly to that I can compare penetration thru some trees and brush.

    NextWave 2G4 RX Module

    I received my module today and had a few flights tonight, Im a bit undecided wether it will be right for me or not.
    compared to the LaserBGC it is a lot better, well kinda no comparison really as my module from laser was rubbish.

    Anyway tried two BO frames on 433 and two brands of clovers, bluebeams and HK's with TBS tuned lawmates on 2510mhz. The Blackout 330 is very clean with filtered supplies to both vtx and cam.

    Both frames got out around to 500m clear LOS but had a fair bit of breakup at that range( early HDs with a lot of rolling effect), enough breakup to not see any obstacles that may be coming my way. so unsure if id get much further but unfortunately the park i was in i had got to the end.

    I then flew in a walnut grove with large trees and had similar breakup to my TBS ground station around the trunks (very flyable) but when i flew up around the canopies of the trees i got bad breakup compared to my TBS GS.

    I can't really add more until further tests.
    Fatshark HD DVR: sorry about the sun.
