    Hi Guys,
    I recently bought a Storm all in one combo from Helipal- here is the link
    http://www.helipal.com/storm-all-in-one ... eluxe.html

    Have set it up fine and the video works- I am happy with the setup. My only issue is that when I fly it, the video crackles quite a bit- like there is interferance. I can still easily see enough to see where I am going etc, but it just isn't beautiful nice crisp video. When it is on the ground etc, the video is perfect. Can anyone suggest why it might be doing that and whether it's fixable? Maybe just the angle of my antenna or location of the transmitter? I am just struggling to work it out.
    Thanks

    sounds like you need a (LC?) filter to remove the noise from the ESC's etc from the power going to the transmitter.

    My fatshark kit came with one, but apparently you can build them for pennies very simple, someone with a bit more knowledge will probably advise lol
