Flight 1: Today's experiment tests a new 1.3 Ghz video system, all from ReadymadeRC.com. The transmitter is their "gold" 1.5w economy unit, the receiver is the "V4 with Comcast tuner" unit, and the antenna is the big patch made by L-Com mounted to my cigar box tracker. This initially blinded my Naza-M GPS unit, but I shielded it and now it works well enough to fly with. I don't think it ever got home-lock. More on next flight.
