the transmitter isnt the issue its the board on the H...... but in any case i do plan on boosting the st16 with another booster. waiting for it to get here. its going to be difficult to install the booster inside the st16, but its possibleBut shouldn't you boost the transmitter? Just asking.
They might be laws in your home country but the FAA has only guild lines to follow. And now if you belong to the AMA in the States the 400 foot limit has been lifted by the FAA. Maybe he wants to fly to the moon.What about the VLOS situation.
In several countries it is not allowed to boost the TX/RX and also you need to keep your bird in VLOS always (stated by the LAW)
LOL dont worry about after several flights there is no GPS or Compass issues also there is no heating issueAh I have to inject here, forget any FCC/FAA/etc issues, I am looking at the installation. 1st thing i notice is GPS interference issues with placement. 2nd heating issues from a 2watt unit sitting in and enclosed area like that. Have you actually test flown this and if so I would just do some hovering for a time before venturing anywhere. I would check heating before and after unit turned on with meter. Then I would see how its going to interfere with the GPS Compass. I have to say I do not like placement for that. Not to cut your excellent work down but ................great idea just not placement
I know I will most like get pounded on this post..........
for the H setup i tapped into the H lipo and used a UBEC to stepdown voltage to 5volts also used hobbyking 2w wifi boosterHow about battery and flight time with this setup? Got my answer from the youtube video. No adverse affect on flight time.
Have you not seen all his mod videos of camera lens, external antennas? If not you should check them out on youtube.Did you consider moving the antennas to outside instead of adding a booster? And I guess you only boosted one of the channels to the diversity antenna system? There are two antenna connections internally correct?
Oh..... I HAVE seen them. Just wondering why it was chosen to upgrade with an amp instead of just moving the internal antennas to the outside of the craft. Amps generate noise, which can create further problems with RF --- I would first move the antennas externally before I add an amp...And I would still have concerns with GPS interference and heat with the internally mounted amp...As well as decreased battery life. While this is a 2w rated amp...There probably isn't enough drive from the H to reach the full 2 watts. This amp is not just boosting the RX like another user has posted here...Have you not seen all his mod videos of camera lens, external antennas? If not you should check them out on youtube.
