Hello all
How has the range checking going with others using the telemetry flight log data screen? How long should one hold down the button doing a range check? I was holding down for maybe close to 1 min or less, I flew my raptor this winter and worked great few logs on the flight log. I installed on a new raptor 50 and if I move the antenna while doing range check especally pointed to the left I get high readings on the log data on A L and F My heli control is still there and when I walk back to the heli there are no flashes from the reciever or sat?? If I just leave antenna pointed out and look towards heli I get very low or no fades on data log any thoughts......and please no bashing,,I really like my dx8 so if you want to bash find another site...

range checking

so no one is range checking with the dx8??? anyways I moved the sat around and now when i range check it, it kicks me out of the range check screen back to main screen?? any one have any issues related like this....earlier the tech from HH told me that high readings on the A L is normal...am waiting for call back on getting kicked out of the range check screen..

i did a check on my 700 yesterday and i got 11 on the A and a few on F. i didn't know what it ment but i figured its holds that kill ya and i never lost control.

it flew fine.

running ar7100 with 1 satellite RX. has me thinking seriously about adding another....
had a lockout just before i range tested the 700 on my 600 causing a crash. i blame the DX8 the receiver didn't report any loss of signal BUT my telemetry confirmed i had a hold on the 600. really has me bothered.

angry because it wasn't me that crashed it!

at least now i have a reason to get edge FBL blades on the 600 the align 3g blades were ok but im sure the edge will be better.

Who cares... its just money...
