"Agree with Anderson. The data rates of these products are very prohibitive. Don't confuse operating frequency with data rate.  2.4 Ghz Xbee products as well as 800 Mhz products have data rates below 250kbps.   *At Work* we…"

"The data rate is a non-starter. Xbee is designed for serial communications at a max of 230kbps. That's too slow for any kind of decent video."

"My quadrotor used a 2.4GHz bluetooth link for telemetry and the moment I turned on the 2.4GHZ wireless video the telemetry link died. I suppose if you replaced the antennas you might be able to get it to work, but my solution is going to be to use…"

Reto replied to Robert Drone's discussion x-bee for video transmission?
"As long as you use 900Mhz Xbees (or similar frequency far from 2.4 GHz), video at 2.4Ghz is no problem."

Simon replied to Robert Drone's discussion x-bee for video transmission?
"Yes & no !! Actually formatting video data in a way that would be acceptable to an X-Bee module would be tricky but not impossible; the main restriction I think would be the data rate. See the discussion at I've been thinking along the…"

Peter Seddon replied to Robert Drone's discussion x-bee for video transmission?

x-bee for video transmission?

Could I hook up an x-bee directly to a video camera and hook it's partner [x-bee] to a tv or video capture card and have a video tx/rx? Here are the parts I would use:2xx-bee2xx-bee explorer1x…See More

"I have 3 of these, with 1 already built with 50+ flights. This thing is a rock star. Is it Elapor, no I believe its EPP. It rocks, has super performance, equal to easystar. Does it have some issues like sticky elevator - yup, I cut it off, extended…"

"You may want to consider this model: It's an AXN Floater-Jet from HobbyCity Basicly, it's an EasyStar/WildHawk with ailerons. There's some videos (Youtube) showing the EsayStar vs. AXN Floater-Jet."

I know you've all heard of the easy star but what do you think of these? Are any of these any good? I picked them because they look decent but don't cost as much as the easystar for starting off with plain old flying [drone comes next]. If you know about any of them or any better ones please comment! Thanks!

"Michael Torrie created a really handy tool to save your RC plane’s propellers from a spinning death on impact. It’s called a prop saver and it’s based on the “elastic rules, static drules” principle. Read on for pictures and… Continue

I have been using the B.U.H.O.R, I have built the sassys rudder rail, I started the corospit (have not finished it), BUHOR 25 and I am currently in the process of building the gnat. I think I am going to use the BUHOR as a uav platform but there is some stuff I am working on before i get that far.

I am using just cheap standard size servos. I am in the process of coming up with a wing tank for fuel with add on fuel tanks for longer flight time depending upon the mission. This is the first time I am getting into UAV's so all that stuff is new to me.
