    Hi guys,
    I want to fly my P4 in the winter, where I am in my basement. The problem is that the signal in the basement is extremely week and I cannot follow my FPV when my bird is far away more than 500m.
    So I am thinking to put a transmission line between my transmitter (controller) and the antennas. I can put the antennas upstairs. The distance between the stairs is around 25 meter.
    and my question is
    Have anyone done this before?
    What type of coaxial cable should I use? What are my options?
    Should I do it for both antennas or is it enough to do it with only one of the two antennas?

    I'm wondering if you will be externally recording the crash.

    Hello [​IMG]

    Welcome to the forum and the addiction er hobby :)

    This link may help you but keep in mind that you really need to be able to see where you're flying and the area around you for safety reasons.
