Pushing the CX-20 Open supply quad copter: Elements: to it's inventory transmitter vary limits.
This quad lately received an enormous value drop!
Bought some good footage whereas I used to be at it. I did this check with 2 consecutive flights utilizing 3dr 5100mah lipo batteries in roughly the identical flight path with similar outcomes. Fail secure Return To House perform kicked in at about 1.four miles which isn't unhealthy. The situations for this check have been optimum as I had a reasonably horizontal angle from transmitter to the quad and there was no radio interference in comparison with a extra populated space. Nonetheless must work on digital camera vibration and gimbal setup points inflicting some jello impact and gimbal bouncing. General the quad dealt with the clouds nicely and was in a position to take care of the moisture.
I used to be utilizing a 200mw fpv video transmitter which dropped sign at a couple of mile so subsequent time i'll be testing with a 600mw VTX after which would possibly transfer on to extra directional antennas for extra vary if wanted. I’ve a 2.4ghz booster on the best way for extra management vary and also will be testing that out subsequent time. I've additionally put in a telemetry hi fi for actual time suggestions on my Nexus 6 telephone which I clamp to the Transmitter whereas flying (Audio information Name outs are nice to have). The telemetry misplaced connection a bit additional than when the fpv video dropped out however unsure how I can enhance the vary for the 915mhz telemetry aside from making an attempt some completely different antennas.
Video was shot with a Sony As-20 motion cam which I additionally faucet into for the FPV goggles I put on and still have one other monitor setup for bystanders to look at. Setup is working fairly good. Simply want to enhance vary and work just a few extra kinks out.
