That is awesome man. I recognized northern CA even before I saw the sign for the resevoir.

Very nice! And a beautiful region you are living in!
Could you share some details about your setup?
The patch antenna is for the video link, or for the transmitter?
What are the frequencies you are using?

I love the changing colors of the hills and the small flowers that grow around here, shame the sun wasn't out.

Nikotine, the patch is for video reception, onboard is a 900mhz 800mw video transmitter with an omni antenna.
Control is with uhf transmitter module clipped to the 9x RC controller, 433mhz, the quad twitched at 1.3km because the uhf signal was lost for a second and failsafe kicked in. video was still perfect.

Later i realized the 2.4ghz trasmitter module was also on :/ i had my hand low, the antenna horizontal and pointing at the quad :/ plus I forgot to up the uhf tx power :/

Wait, you have uhf AND 2.4ghz on the same RC? How does that work?

I'm going to mod my Spektrum radio with a wifi amplifier. I hope to get the same range then.

i only use one at a time but forgot the original plugged in today.
the uhf module just needs the PPM signal, i've made a little plug for it since i don't have the trainer port plug.
