I wanted to share my idea for my first project for a RC Plane. I have flown RC planes before but never decided to put together my own. Below is what I plan to buy to put into the plane:
Hobby Kind Global Hawk EDF Plane
FlySky 2.4Ghz Tx & Rx
HoryzonHD FPV Camera
5.8Ghz 1200mw Video Tx&Rx
I wondered what people thought about this and whether the plane would be able to fit the Rc Rx, FPV Camera and Video Tx. I was going to use the X8 platform but due to a lack of the white version I chose to go for the Global Hawk instead!
Any thoughts would be appreciated,
If you look at my first post and then read Stefan Gofferje's post above you made a wise choice not going for the Global Hawk.
I have been away for a month so well done on the radio certification. Just wondering how you are getting on with the Global Hawk?
5.8ghz would not be my first choice for video on a fixed wing. Even with 1.2w you will not get the range you can achieve with say a 400mw 1.3ghz system. Also, your 1.2w transmitter is going to give off some heat, just something to think about.
I just made basically the same decision. I was pretty much wanting the X8 but
So the Global Hawk would make a cheaper crash :). I didn't take a Bixler(2) or something like that, because I still wanted a big plane.
You will regret buying the Global Hawk - the X8 is the better option by far
