Here's yet another range test with the Typhoon H using the ITELITE/DBS antenna upgrade, no. 3 for me. This time I ventured to the beach at sunrise and was able to get about 2340 feet away before the video became unusable. The telemetry also went all N/A, but I continued to have control.
Since we're still using the converter for the Q500 V2 in Dashware, there is some data field mismatch. As a result, the distance traveled is the closest number to the distance number on the controller.
I was happy to get to 1700 feet last time in the woods near my home, so I was pleased to get a bit more this time.
The video was rock solid, only pausing and flashing at around 2200 feet before fading.
While I maintained LOS during the entire flight, the H was a mere dot on the sky for my 54 year old eyes. After glancing at the display on the controller, it took me quite a few moments to reacquire LOS on the H. I don't know how much farther I would feel comfortable taking the H.
Thanks for watching.
