    Flying Over A Frozen Lake part 2

    Gopro REALLY don't like cold weather... hard to get them running

    And the short run was caused by... jamming, first time I been experienced that... my 1280 was jammed and I was not able to go far... So, since it is a 200mw I was using, I was thinking this was the vTx, but, try my ZII and had the same behavior with a 400mw, and I did often more than 1km with it. To me sure, I did about 2km, with my tri when I went home... Bad jamming... damn!
