    Researching Fatshark goggles and thinking about the Teleporter V3. Fatshark.com says the range is 1KM+ right out of the box. Yet in many online discussions people are saying the stock range isn't very good. I know people are using circular antennas but right out of the box you get dipole antennas. Is anyone actually getting 1KM+ with the stock antennas?

    If i was you i would go for the Skyzone Googles... Why? Because they have diversity receiver and 32CH capable, you will not get stuck with immersionrc/fatshark transmitters that are very expensive.

    SkyZone SKY-01: http://j.mp/1nqsKMU

    With this transmitter: Boscam TS353 400mw: http://j.mp/1gJ6t7s

    Antennas, get a Helical or patch and a Cloverleaf and you can expect something like 2km range.

    For the TS353 400mw tx the first 4 channel output higher power, so you will get better range.ยด

    Stock antennas are junk.

    Cloverleafs/SpiroNETs will easily obtain 1km. A directional on the goggles like a helical or patch will obtain 2km+
