  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

Got it from Quadcopters uk,  on pre-order for months I had forgotten about it. I did ring them about a month ago and asked when they were expecting a delivery only to find they were in the same position. 
I did the power mod as the voltage on it was 4.4 volts,.
First impression, very clean and sensitive  r/x.. that's the good news,  it is really power hungry, and the "intuitive menu"  is crap. Who's intuition they used is not defined.  The Furious FPV  in m.h.o  is streets ahead and very easy to use. I suppose i will get used to it in time.
A quick test at 25 mw  it had no trouble through 3 brick walls one of which was at an oblique angle and in my workshop full of metal and machinery. Field test next week ,if it ever stops raining.. :shrug:
Interesting feedback John. Stick with it and I'll eagerly await your further testing. Very jealous! 🤣

Gave the Rapid+Fire  a good range test (with spotter). So far so good no break up at all.. :o Kept the T/X  power at 25mw, went down too 25ft at extreme  range while sitting between two cars and partialy obscured stone wall. Antennas used were a Gav cloverleaf with 10cm stalk, and an ImersionSpironet 8dbi  patch.
If only the controls wern't such a p.i.t.a. :laugh:

Good to hear. What fpv camera are you using? Apparently there's been issues with some of the foxeers.

Lol, yeah there's been backlash on that. Apparently a firmware fix is in train.

From what I have found out the 3 month gap between the first batch and issue 3 was sorting the p.s.u. problem and the camera one ..I'm working on the " If it aint bust don't mess with it"  school of thought.😀

theres one currently hiding in my backgarden shrubs after my bengal found it last night and discovered the amusement that can be had playing "musical frog".

basically he cornered it, then proceeded to stomp it with his front paw till it made the unholy noise that only a distressed frog can before he'd leap back and then repeat the whole thing again, after the sixth or seventh round I got so peeved at heaing "ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!" every couple of minutes I went out and chased him off before shooing the unhurt but now angry looking frog into the shrubs were it could hide. :banghead:

I need a pay rise........ Though I'd settle for a reduction in the amount of hours I need to work to get the same money.

Good memories  ::)
Plus Hungry Horace, and Horace and the Spiders
I think they were just copies of pacman, donkey kong, and frogger etc, great fun though.
