    Lightbulb Iron Horse First 3.3 GHz System in the World!

    We all know the story, 1.2 GHz antennas are too big, the 2.4 GHz band would be awesome but you just can't use it with your 2.4 GHz control system. The 5.8 GHz band has been the only viable option until today. But we all know well the issues with 5.8 GHz, it has become way too crowded and the performance of this band is not ideal for FPV; even with the best antennas available.
    We love FPV and have thoughtfully worked with a group of engineers to solve this issue for the FPV Community. This has been under development for the past 15 months.
    We now proudly announce our new line of 3.3 GHz products coming very soon. The first batch is just around the corner. This will definitely be a game change that will benefit the entire FPV Pilot Community for racing and long range.
    FPV is not just our hobby, it's our passion!

    Looking forward to another usable band.
    Most of the money I made this year I spent on FPV,the rest I just wasted.

    I'm in! Feed us more- price, mw powers, release dates, channel numbers with safe separation etc!
    I'm aware that everything can change until a final product hits the shelves, but still, a rough info for teasing and building pressure would be nice
    Edit: found info on RCG, 2-3 weeks...

    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.

    Sorry for not posting all the details. Not everyone here at Hobby Wireless knew about the development of this new system. It was a surprise and was revealed to us just a few days ago.
    I don't have all the technical specifications handy yet, but I will post all the information here as soon as I have it on hand.
    All I know at the moment is that the first batch is coming with 1000mW transmitters .....yes sir, 1 Watt of output, which is plenty of power. It might an overkill for mini racers, but the next batch we should have 0.5/1W version.


    Cheers!

    Holly cow, 1W, I'm definitely sold. The reason why I'm moving slowly from 5.8g to 2.4g is that I'm looking for slightly better penetration (range is more that enough for me with 5.8g 200mw), but 5.8g 1W Vtx's are way too huge for my minis. And 2.4g CPs are a bit too big as well... I was waiting for that "middle" for a long time and I hope the price won't bite and we can get a module for Fatshark goggles as well. Or at least Vrx to be easy enough to mod (like Boscam's 5.8g and Skylark's 2.4g) so I can make my own module

    1w @ 3.3G so this is aimed towards noobs who think power equals distance?
