So you want your to do long range/medium range flights on your Bixler?
It's a big investment so first of all do you want to spend the money for a long range system?
What do you need for long range FPV?
- UHF System
- FPV System
- Stable Plane
- Money and soldering skills
There are a few UHF (Ultra High Frequency) systems on the market.
+ Proven quality
+ Made in the USA
+ Free receivers if you/friends buy from dragonlink
+- Compatible with dragonOSD (Really hard to setup, manual is HUGE)
- Filtering of the EZuhf is better
- Bad costumer service
- People have allot of issues with dragonlink V2
269$ No diveristy 12 CH
++ Spectrum analyser
++ Extreme hopping this mode uses allot bigger portion of the band (430-450MHz)
+ Programable radio update the software yourself
+ Selectable frequencies: 431-433 MHz 433-435 MHz 435-437 MHz 436-438 MHz
+ Legall versions for UK and Germany
+ Proven quality (Used by trappy)
+ Compatible with EZosd for RSSI (easy to setup)
+ Better filtering for 1.2 GHz and 900 MHz
- Costs allot more
319.99$ 8 Channel no diversity
339.99$ 8 Channel diversity
- Chainlink Dare
+ Cheap only 150$
+ Updatable software
+ Standard diversity
+ Compatible with cyclops osd for RSSI measurement
- Bad filtering (people cant fly chainlink and ezuhf together, chainlink will get failsafe because of bad filtering, also allot less range)
- Not compatible with 1.2 GHz and 900 MHz (Failsafe after 200M)
(There are some people who have no problems at all but the risk for me is just to big)
150.00$ 11 channels，9 channels for control signal ，1 channel for PPM
If you have the money go for EZuhf, if you want a cheaper uhf system go for dragonlink. I don't advice you to buy Chainlink Dare.
I hope that this was educational.
