  • It depends on the type of transmitters you are using for your telemetry, if they are frequency hopping such as the 3DR telemetry radios then 915mhz can legally be used up to 1W as long as a minimum of 20 hopping frequencies are used (which I'm pretty sure it does by default) although it only goes up to 100mW you can at least use it full power. however 433mhz can only legally be used without a license up to 25mW because there is no there is no provision in the regulations for frequency hopping, the 25mW restriction applies no matter how you are transmitting.

  • Just make sure if you use UHF RC that you separate far enough your RC channel from your telemetry, otherwise you'll stomp all over your RC link with your telemetry. If you're running 2.4 RC though you'll be right. Good luck, make a post of your build when its done!
  • Thanks Matt, 433 it is!
  • Well, you get approx double the range with 433 as 915, plus 433 is legal in Australia if you have the advanced amateur radio operators licence, whereas 915 is very close to the mobile phone 3g 900mhz networks, so I would recommend 433 unless you're out remote.
  • Hey All,

    I have a quick noob question for Australia; 433Mhz or 915MHz for telemetry?

Splash drone modification

Hi I'm new here from Melbourne, I bought a splash drone fishing drone. It was ok never flew quite as nice as my old phantom 3 ever did. Anyway it run out of battery 350m out to sea and took a load of water and everything is toasted. It does turn on but won't arm. Im thinking of gutting it but motors and the drop mechanism and putting a custom drone internals Now I literally have no idea where to begin with this. All I need is 500m range and GPS return to home and a trigger for drop mech . I…

Hi guys,I've been into drones for a few years as a hobby, and recently got a Mavic Pro.  I've posted a few pics & videos on my facebook & instagram, and I've been really surprised by the number of friends who've asked me to do work for their businesses.I work full time so droning is still a hobby, but I learn more everyday, and I reckon there have to be hundreds of others out there like me who'd like to make a bit of money on the side.So I've set up - it works like…
