"@Brian, i didnt realise that about OPLink. nice. I agree with your statement regarding RC over telemetry. definitely not a good way to do it."

Brian commented on luke cooke's blog post Why the need For an 2,4ghz RC uplink?
"The OPLink sends the RC signal inline with telemetry, and has since 2013 - well before TBS crossfire, dragonlink, and RFD900+ have been around. Longer than 3DR modems have been around for that matter. You really don't want to send control…"

Nicholas Witham commented on luke cooke's blog post Why the need For an 2,4ghz RC uplink?
"The benefit of having an RC link as well as having a separate telemetry link is for redundancy. If you lose one, you'll still have the other. If you only want to use one there are a number of options: You can use a USB/bluetooth controller…"

Why the need For an 2,4ghz RC uplink?

Posted on September 20, 2017 at 11:10am 12 Comments

Hi all,

I Have a plan to build my own handheld groundcontroll station and was thinking about the 2,4ghz rc side of things... With having  a 433mhz telemetry uplink is there any need for a Traditional RC link?

If my Thinking is correct the 3DR Solo uses the Telemetry signal for RC controll Too, Correct me if im wrong! If they…

Is DIY Dead?

I remember a time a few years back where we DIYer's where leading the way in drone advancement, It was here where I  was first presented with an autopilot, Before that It never even crossed my mind that commercialy affordable autopilots would ever be available. Since then There has been a huge advace in the technology, both from us diyer's and comercialy.

Im not really electronicly…

Hi all,

I posted here a while back about my Quad frame and thought it would be a good idea to post a quick update.....

For those that missed the first post this is a Quadcopter frame in the Spider style but the difference being that the bottom plate has a Dirty/clean setup ( The FC, Gimball and battery are on the clean section) , this means that the…
