    Im building an F550 and will be using a Naza M v2. Im thinking of getting this transmitter and receiver. What do you guys think? Any other suggestions on other transmitters and receivers? Those who use this transmitter/receiver, could you give me your opinions. Thanks

    I used this combo for exactly the same build. Nice,easy solution.

    The odd thing is that you get a DJ6 transmitter- that's the standard Phantom 1 v1.1.1 Tx. DJI via helipal claimed that although they look the same- the DT7 version has a 1000m range.

    Then again- DJI claim lots of things!

    I like the simplicity of the DJI radio. If you are doing long range FPV flight, that may not be the best choice. So far the longest distance I got with my P2 stock radio is 1.1km.

    isn't there a "range extender" you can add on to the DT7?
