I can neither condone or approve the modification as I want to stay neutral but you should be aware that in the UK if you do decide to go ahead with itHi,
Is there anyone in the UK that does the controller modifications to increase the video feed of the Inspire.
Further to Editor's sound comments, you must bear in mind that the maximum legal range in 500m. From my experience, the standard RC works perfectly out to that distance and beyond (up to 1500m opps).Is there anyone in the UK that does the controller modifications to increase the video feed of the Inspire.
Yup, they are just acting as a passive reflector and concentrating the RF energy in a focussed direction. The beam angle is obviously more narrow than a 'doughnut' and therefore if you go too far off axis you will lose both uplink and downlink with the Inspire (if you were a fair way out).Ed: With the proviso that I suspect you've forgotten more about antenna theory than I currently know, how are these "reflectors" working?
Are they just acting as a parabolic dish antenna? What does that do to the "standing wave ratio" (SWR) of the transmitting antenna? Is there a risk that they increase the SWR to the point that Really Bad Things happen to the amount of RF power reflected back into the output stage of the transmitter?
