Did this video help you?

Luke P: would it be possible to modify the 9x to have a screw on antenna?

bo holland: nice scissors

Snozz Berries: how can i extend the range of my drone when its using WiFi signals?

random269: looking forward to your volcano footage.

Juno Mac RC: how different is it for FPV for RC ground vehicle?

Jack Preece: so you can also use these for a 5.8ghz monitor ??

cbluebeard: Hey Bruce! Are you going to try out/review the TBS Crossfire?

Roger Jones: need a side kick homeless person when wasting good food like that , sorry it was cute though....

Air Support: Another way to extend range: tuned antennae

Devin Duncan: ah, you don't have to hold the transmitter like a cup of wine at a Catholic Mass. The antenna folds at the base, just lay it horizontally and carry on.

Devin Duncan: Might be useful (from Cisco data):
0 dBm = 1mW
1 dBm = 1.25 mW
2 dBm = 1.56 mW
3 dBm = 2 mW
4 dBm = 2.5 mW
5 dBm = 3.12 mW
6 dBm = 4 mW
7 dBm = 5 mW
8 dBm = 6.25 mW
9 dBm = 8 mW
10 dBm = 10 mW

note that it is a log scale, not linear.

... BUT: if your transmitter does not put out the power, the larger antenna does not increase transmitter power as indicated... it will only increase output up to the limit of the power (mW) available. In other words, a system designed around a 3 dBm antenna most likely will not reach 3.12 mW simply by adding a 5 dBm antenna.

Antonio Brown: RMILEC -> Arm - i- lec ??

Yang Lee: "made in Taiwan" Proud to be Taiwaneseeeeeee

shoominati23: So can I get one of the 2000mw 5.8ghz systems from hoobyking and get at least 10 kilometres? as I asked them and they said I needed LPV... I dunno, I give up! Well my goal is to build a semi quarter scale model of at least 2.5 metres wingspan with a gas motor of around 30cc and have large fuel capacity and be able to launch a model down by the coast and fly it inland above the capital city , get footage and fly back again. eventually I want to design my own composite mode land give it long and slender wings such as a u-2 or a predator drone (oops, did I say that?) so I can float around at higher altitudes without using a ton of fuel.

John Robertson: Although Ive been watching your videos for awhile now, because Ive just gotten a Dragonlink, I thought Ide check this vid out. All was going nicely till I heard you say "You can get a UHF system....". Ummm...I know youre aware of this, but, Everything between 300Mhz and 3Ghz is UHF. Why are there people saying..."Oooh, Ahhh,,UHF is so cool"? Anyone flying 2.4G is already in the uhf band!

I know..it sounds cool. We like to get sucked in by the marketeers.

neo36w eno36w: awesome :D

Rob Lock: From your experience, or maybe some chatter you think is reputable, who produces the longer range stock transmitter at 2.4Mhz, in your opinion? (Futaba FrSky Spektrum in particular.)

hyphen-ated: Thanks Bruce! Interesting going back and re-watching these, information is just as useful. You seem so much more relaxed here :P

Thomas A. Anderson: I guess you forgot the 27 MHz and 75 MHz transmitters if UHF for you is too noisy.....

Jaultaub: thanks a lot!!! i look soooo long for an apropriate way to amplify my signal!
