    Range with the Connex is limited by the software, so having a better antenna is not going to help get you anymore range.

    The connex can measure distance from Tx to Rx by time coding the signals. Pass 1100 meters it'll initiate a timer of 30sec, pass which it display black screen until distance is reduced. Aminon don't want their unit to do long range HD.

    The Connex will sit in the murky world of "commercial" UAVs. Meanwhile, some creative team will eventually release an open source HD video system that is aimed at FPV with no lame range limits and will instantly have much more sales than the Connex.

    They chose their market.

    The Connex is a pretty sweet unit, HD FPVing is definitely mesmerizing. I really want to put one of these units on a mini quad.

    It really sucks that it's limited to 1km, but I believe Aimimon is an Israeli company so it's pretty obvious why they wouldn't want a long-range HD kit out there for cheap. It's coming, though, like philthyy said.

    Longe range HD will not enable a nefarious purpose any more than an already available long range analog link. Those who would use a wireless video link on some vehicle to do dirty work really don't care about how pretty the image looks, just that its good enough to get the job done.

    you can grab an inspire and fly 3 miles away out of the box. terrorism is not a factor.

    The driving factor is their unlimited range unit(same hardware chip, more power output, different connectors like SPI vs HDMI) is over $9,000
