This is part: 9 in our FPV Tutorial Video series: Radio Communication Explaned.

Check out this latest video to find out what you need to know to get started flying FPV.
The video system on a plane set up for FPV is all about radio communication. In this video we go over how to read a radiation plot, what is the fresnel zone, multipathing interference, noise floor and where to place your antennas and most importantly how they work. Flying FPV is more than just tossing a plane into the air with a video downlink if you want to have a successful flight. We cover it all in this episode with iBcrazy. Thanks for watching and if you have questions we would love to hear them.

wow, gained a lot of knowledge from your video. I have been in the new stages of fpv, and this helps explain some things. Thanks for making multipathing more clear to me.
