200mw 5.8TX with CloverLeaf Antenna 1.8km out ranges Spektrum DX7 Crashed!

200mw 5.8TX with CloverLeaf Antenna 1.8km out ranges Spektrum DX7 Crashed!

Well this little Cloverleaf antenna outranged my Spektrum DX7!

Well today my FPV Bird the Skywalker Eaglewing took a dive into a bird sanctuary :( I had to find it and it was nowhere where I thought it was LOL it was 1.8 kilometers into the marsh….in the water….tail in the air. I have had 5 lockouts from the Spektrum DX7 and it does the same thing each time left aileron UP right aileron DOWN until you gain reception or hit the ground.

Lost in the wreckage

  • FoxTech HoryzonHD Camera   $150
  • Spektrum AR7000 Receiver and Satellite   $100
  • 180° Degree Fisheye lens for my 808 #16   $7
  • 800mA 3S Lipo    $8
  • 1x 9gram Servo   $5

Total loss $270  :(

The Eaglewing took the crash really well since the lockout happened approx 350meters up, the wings are fine. Just the nose was bent and buckled badly, but a boiling pot of water fixed that pretty well.

 

 

Oh well next is the AXN Floater Jet from Hobbyking ARF kit USA LINKAUS LINK ( under $50 )  using my GoPro
