Radio Test – 4

A radio test has recently been conducted with good results.

Test was:-

* 17.1km

* Using Radio-ACK version of RFD900 firmware

* Air speed of 8kbits/second

Was able to get:-

* Minimal loss of information  (not getting a loss of sync)

* Successfully initiated a cut-down.

* Wasn’t able to get a picture (and didn’t try too long)

* Got a reasonably good RSSI (around about 60/60) not bad considering I had a lot of vegetation in front of me during the test.

Will be looking at doing a 40km test next. Just need to decide how we are going to do this test. I want to have the ‘flight’ batteries connected this time and do away with the battery/inverter set-up.
