    Hi!
    I'm looking to upgrade my current 5.8GHz VTX setup for a 1.2GHz.

    CP antennas seem a bit unwieldy to mount on a Phantom.
    Does anyone have some experience in that area?
    What about V or dipole antennas?


    I'll be using 433 for the control link.

    So did you try anything? I'm looking to do the same.
    Thanks,

    Assuming you are using 2.4Ghz as your control, isnt there a huge problem using 1.2Ghz in that it is a harmonic of 2.4Ghz.

    I thought that was a big no-no.

    EDIT

    I have a DJI Phantom 2 Vision + 3.0 - the 2.4ghz and 5.8ghz interference where I fly is so bad, I want to go to 433mhz on the control and 1.2ghz on the vid-
    FPVLR said
    For the 433mhz?
    My choice of a P2V+ exposes my "newbie"ness...
    So I plan to get US Level 1 License-
    http://www.arrl.org/getting-your-technician-license
    and ask folks like you and others for input- and I will test and post results.
    Lastly with all I spent, I have little left for mods, but know the ROI in returning to home is $ well spent.
    Please advise if any want to see my 433mhz choices/reseach and I'l post.
    Thanks and best,
