    Anyone use this transmitter with their Phantom 2? I was told by a seller with clear skies you can get a lot more distance.

    I was looking at his all in one kit: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/e11051.m4 ... xe,ext=ext

    and for $60 he would upgrade the tx to the Black Mamba.

    Any thoughts? Good deal?

    I see this thread here: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=26413 which is SUPER helpful. But I'm wondering if maybe with this nudge of a transmitter for only $60 it's worth it to go in this direction.

    Thanks for your thoughts/help. (first timer here)

    I got rid of my 2W TX, as it had no more range that the 600mW Immersion TX in the real world.

    It was very power hungry and physically a lot bigger than the Immersion.

    There is no doubt that the Immersion units are a lot better than the majority of the Chinese copies, but do not play nicely with all receivers. I run mine with the 32channel Black Pearl - which I think is the same as the one in your link and it is fine, but some people have had issues with the tuning and recommend the 7 channel version instead.

    You might be able to do better than buying a bundle, as you are essentially buying a bunch of Chinese copies, the quality of which is difficult to assess.

    And even if you do want all the exact components that are in that set, you can buy them MUCH cheaper individually. QYV's great reference you linked is a good start for that, but we can help you find those for a lot less than nearly $500.
