"Have a look at the 900u also if you are looking to save weight on The craft. We sell them on our online store in Australia, not sure if I'm allowed to put a link, but if you are local in Brisbane would be happy to assist. We use the 900 as a…"

"Don't bother with a patch antenna, get a RFD900 for your ground unit. You'll get 6 miles range without a sweat."

Steve Cain replied to Damo's discussion will a 3dr 433 mhz telemetry conflict with an ezuhf transmitter in the group ArduCopter User Group
"If you take the time to configure both so they don't directly conflict on frequencies they can be made to work but it's best to use different bands for telemetry and control because at best the ultimate range of both the control link and…"

"3s lipo works fine for 12v VTX applications.  I have never seen one of my VTX drop out as voltage falls.  You will want to make or buy a low pass filter to have clean video. Steve"

"You set them up the same way you do a regular telemetry modem, they just have more sensitivity and more features if you upload some special firmware.   Most common reason I see these not connecting is because people don't set them to the…"

Josh Welsh replied to Damo's discussion 915mhz patch in the group ArduCopter User Group
"Doesn't matter that they are tuned for 915, its close enough and the frequency hopping will kick in anyways. The Vee antennas are directional, so you'll be required to decide if you want strong telemetry going away, or coming back.…"
