Lessons in Long Range FPV

After the total loss of my first FPV plane, I realized the necessity of including several layers of redundancies both to my ability to remain in control of the aircraft as well as being able to recover it in the event of a crash outside line-of-sight. Here is what I settled on. 1. UHF LRS (Long Range control System) I decided on Dragonlink’s 433MHz UHF transmitter to replace my shorter-ranged 2.4GHz FrSky system. As one of the two direct contributors to Icarus’ loss, replacing the control link was something that should have been done from the start. 2. 1.3GHz Video I switched from omnidirectional, circular-polarized 5.8GHz video to 1.3GHz. The lower frequency provides greater range and object penetration. 3. I actually went back to linear polarization for the time being, mostly to cut costs.

Video Aerial Systems is currently under construction. If you have technical questions about our products contact or Contact Sales at A guide to help you select the best antenna system for you. Antennas are the critical link between a transmitter and receiver, so it is best to select the proper antennas for your FPV scenario for the best possible flight experience. Step 1 – Select polarization type Polarization – Circular or linear? Recently a few FPVer’s including myself have discovered the merits of circular polarization. Circular polarization: Circular polarization is used by NASA and many HAMs to communicate with satellites that orbit the Earth as the orientation of the satellite is consistently changing.

Parts Used: (1) SPG400A-CM Channel Mount Gearbox (you choose the servo and ratio) : SERVO INCLUDED(1) Channel Bracket C : #585480(1) 90° Hub Mount A : #585494(1) pack 6-32x5/16" Socket Head Machine Screws : #632108 (25 pack - use 8, 17 extra that can be used to attach tilt to a pan gearbox...see bottom of post.(1) pack 6-32x1/2" Socket Head Machine Screws : #632114 (25 pack - use 4, 21 extra) These 4 pictures show the tilt portion of the setup. You can view a quick clip of the tilt in motion here: If you want to attach this tilt to a pan gearbox to create a complete pan/tilt system, we suggest using a SPG400A-CM-360 gearbox for the base pan (see images below).

How to build an FPV Antenna tracker for use with Mission Planner

After looking around for a 'stock' solution I decided to build one myself. Above is a photo of the final product. I am using the 5.8Ghz band for my FPV configuration, and this keeps the antenna small and the entire package very compact and portable. There are two stock full-size servos and a servo base that I purchased from I will not say that this solution is 'cheap', but it is very effective. The total cost of this rig was about $280 (plus the work to assemble it).

The link to the antenna is here (ReadyMadyRC). Antenna Tracker. Any servo based Pan & Tilt gimbal should work.

Ideally the system should allow 180 degrees of pan rotation in both directions and 90degrees of pitch both up and down. The servos used can either be regular servos that translate the PWM input into an absolute angle or continuous rotation servos.
