I'm nearing the end of wiring my MT and just realised I hadn't fitted the 433 telemetry radio. For this model I was trying to avoid mounting stuff in the wings so I have RC and gps tx at the rear and my 5.8vtx at the front which also makes sense to mount the telemetry radio there too but is it going to screw with the vtx?

What is a good or reasonable weight for an MT? Looks like mine is coming in at around 1800g with battery and all the trimmings.

If you are only getting 1 meter the transmission must be in the micro watts region. Even 1mW will get further than 1m.

Assuming you have got good wiring and correct voltages, then It can really only be one of three things (in order of likelihood)...

1. Wrong channel
2. Blown transmitter
3. Faulty antenna

I guess there is a slight possibility that the receiver could be faulty, but not very likely in my experience.

Without special equipment, the only way to identify 2,3 or 4 is by a process of elimination using other parts. If meetings up with someone isn't practical then I don't think you can do much more without buying another transmitter (can be a cheap one so long as it supports compatible frequencies) or send your kit to someone willing to test it for you.

Looking good Phil. You didn't hang around there! See you Sunday hopefully.

I learnt a lot on my Windrider Bee, mostly that that grade of EPO is too soft wthout crossweave and leads to twisting.

So with that airframe outliving it's purpose and the Talon not yet here I spied the Falcon at 36 quid on Hobbyking.

The gear has directly transfered with only slight changes.

Power is a 3s Multistar 4000Mah pack which spins a NTM 2836 and a 8x4 prop at about 20A via a YEP 30A speedo.
This is a bit up from the Bee which had a 2830 on a 7x4.

Camera is an Eagle ( thought I was buying a 2, it's not  :'( ) which leads to a selectable Quanum 25/600 vtx
I want to easily access the underside for channel changing which meant burying the heatsink in the foam. So I've cut all the way through and got some 22mm sq heatsinks and adhesive transfer pads the have that sticking up in the breeze.
I've got Chris-s's mini OBS hooked up again with GPS and it's all powered by a Life 6.6v 1700mah pack

The rx is a dr4 2 which was on 600mm aerials but i'm not convinced they added to range, just put the aerials further away.
In the Bee I had one vertical and one horizontal in the wing and got about 1500-1700m range
In the Falcon I've gone back to standard aerials and made a V to try and improve recepition rather than range.

Hopefully test it on Sunday
