Long Range Hooligans – Long-range VTX Opinions
In fairness, I know 1.3Ghz is better and penetration is great when using just omni. My long range is always casual, quick setup times, there is literally no beating a 400-1W 5.8Ghz system for 10-15km when you can literally just screw a tiny crosshair or spironet 13dbi to your goggles and have good video. All without needing a ground station. If I’m going to take the time to shoot out to like 20km+, I will make the effort of setting up the ground station Josh
I haven’t actually done any propper long range with it, but I’ve really been liking the fx2 dominator, it needs to be cooled well, but it puts out a clean 1.8w of power as measured on proper lab equipment. I have no idea what amp they’re using to do it, but they’re doing something right Luke
Any of them will do good with good antennas. A good receiver antenna is worth 10 vtxs Mike

I’m not sure which I like better. Vista or air unit. Both have their purpose. For me normal 5” flying and racing around trees I prefer air unit. Micro sized and light weight 5” on a normal open course vista Kelvin
I haven’t flown my AU’s since I got my Vistas aside from the comparison vlogs 😳 Conrad
For me the vista and bandoo got enough range on 200mw, no problems with analog users and more range than 800mw analog Patrick
5 inch = AU, otherwise Vista Rick
