Telemetry maximum update rate

Hey guys,

I wondered if anyone could tell me what the maximum number of refreshes you can do per second when you have a telemetry system attached. I know this differs depending on packet loss and signal strength but what is the maximum rate you can update the telemetry data so that the mission planner shows telemetry data as smooth as when you are attached to it via USB but over radio telemetry.

I hope this makes sense, cheers.

    i dont think anybody has tested this. but if you have 3dr radios decreasing the air baud rate will increase range alot. the apm tries to auto throttle the messages when using a 3dr radio as well. i woudl just suggest trying it.
