    We've tried Teradek, Paralinx and Connex. Connex has the best range.

    If you're just starting out in HD downlinking, remember that long range heavily depends on antenna placement on the TX. Camera shading is a range killer. Try to keep your antennas away from carbon fiber and angle them on separate planes. Also use cloverleaf antennas on the transmitter. Much better range!

    Here's a video we put together of our setup. https://www.vidmuze.com/movi-controller-setup/

    We get a solid 1500 ft LOS with full gimbal 360 and no drop outs or camera shading.

    We use the RMRC-700 XVN ReadyRC FPV camera.

    Works great!
