Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Hi,

Am looking to update my old UAV which is basically knackered etc, so many crashes (no GPS or decent AP etc). Have around £1300 to spent, ideally an RTF solution.

I';ve been looking at the TBS Discovery Pro, but it seems its only in kit form (the gimbals take a long time to put together) and a few companies have yet to combe back to be on a RTF model.

Would the standard TBS discovery be okay? Can I use a 2 axis gimbal?

Also, I heard a lot of good things on the Tarot T650 carbon quad frame, does anyone have any opinions?

Finally I';m going to get into FPV. I know the current law in the UK is a max of 25mW on the TX, with the spiro antennas, what sort of LoS range do you think I got get at 5.8Ghz?

Of course we all obey the law, but if I went to 100mw (or even 250mW like the kit with the fatshark) would I cause problems to the locals, radio hams etc?

Cheers

Nick

You would be amazed how quickly lots of small purchases add up.

Is there a tongue in cheek smiley  :tongue: :whistling:

Sorry, see what you were trying to do with those smilies there.  :rolleyes: :azn

Unusually for me, I actually have tracked every last purchase; but I hadn';t ever converted it all to £s and added it up until recently. Despite my earnest attempts at frugality along the way, when I finally did, I nearly fell off my chair! Could have bought a pro rig!
