Been searching to find out exactly how many mW the Video TX is, but can't find any info on it. All the manual says is: Video transmission range - up to 1 mile (1.6km). Been getting a lot of choppy video on the ST16, trying to figure out why. Tried the CGO3 app (iOS) and it works, but only get about 25ft before I lose connection. Granted this is in my backyard, lots of wifi around.
Anyone have any info on this VTX at all?

According to their FCC filing for the CGO3:

The maximum output power is 14.14dBm (27.54mW) at 5745MHz

Put a wifi analyzer app on your phone and you can compare the db output from the camera. I have a couple of inexpensive 5.8GHZ antennas to try. Just need time to get out and test them. There are several aftermarket antennas available in the $100-$130 range.

The VTX in on 5.8Gh, the WiFi is on 2.4 Gh. Two different transmitters. There is a separate antenna inside the H for the WiFi. This is my understanding.
