    Just wanted to share my first TBS Crossfire experience! I bought the CF a month ago but never got a chance to test it out. Well... my float plane works great on snow.. so why not enjoy this nice day? (See attached pic)

    The results: Super impressed! I hit 7.5km using only 10mw of power. Turned around at that point -- wish I brought a bigger battery so I could of gone farther.

    Prior to that flight, I was testing the CF with some low flying. Approximately 15m altitude at 2-3km out. CF never went above 10mw.


    CF v1.09, stock antennas on RX, "tuned" whip on TX, 2.4 video.

    Hey, that's a neat plane. Where did you find that one?

    The Mentor is a really cool plane. Have one too.

    How do I connect my Mavlink Telemetry output to the CF Rx?

    I just got my replacement micro antennas.
    Is there any chance you could offer some with a longer coax section?
    The coax on the ones I have is identical in length to the counterpoise making it very difficult to mount it properly on a my 250

    "V" is the recommended position.

    The 1st I did was to convert the Dipole to a Monopole. Mounting a Dipole in a wrong way is worse than a Monopole, and the Mono is quite easy to mount. Still 95% of the time on 10mW, so it seems to be ok.

    I would like to know if you can connect to bluetooth TX Crossfire for example, a HC-05 module, would be of much interest to me because we have a project tracker antenna receiving telemetry through bluetooth with one of these modules. Thank you
