    At the risk of sounding rather obvious, the best channel is the one that your receiver is also set to and is the one that you find is free of interference.

    Yes but some channels have a higher output than others. I saw a comparison for several vtx's output by channel somewhere but can't find it now. I know local interference plays a part, but just wanted to know which is the highest output to start with.

    Hmm.. That's good to know. So on an ImmersionRC 600MW channels 1 and 2 put out the most power? I'm running on channel 6. Looks like I need to look at moving to channel 1-3. Good post
