ok, I hope that someone will have the answers to these questions before tomorrow at 8pm pst. I had to send back my phantom 1 to amazon due to ESC and motor problems. My options were to get another Phantom one or to order a phantom FC-40, I went with the 40 thinking that the 5.6ghz freq would be better and that it has to be a better craft then its predecessor. After it was ordered I started to do some research which prompted this hectic email. It seems that the FC-40 is a lesser piece of equipment then the Phantom 1. So I need to know some basics stuff. My phantom one was for aerial videography mostly. I have a GOPRO hero 3 and tarot 2d gimbal plus carbon fiber props. I did not use it with FPV or did I care about fantastic range. 1. I do need to know if the FC-40 will support the 7th X1 channel for tilt functions? 2. Do I need to buy a separate kit for tilt functions? 3. What is the real range (line of sight) for the FC-40 (stock) I called a number of hobby shops and got varied answers to these questions, USA hobby in Las Vegas said that if I had a Phantom 1 the FC-40 is virtually identical Is that the truth? Thanks in advance for any help here.
