For a PCM system the range seems to be around 1km! what about 2.4Ghz?
I'd like to do longer flights in FPV to shoot longer videos along a beach for example!

Helikam there are a lot of variables. Keep the downlink TX over 20" away from the RX to start with. People have done tests with PCM and 2.4 gear well over three miles (6 km). There are operational challenges (getting lost, crashing into people, etc.) that are harder to overcome than radio range. Be careful.
If you need a long beach run sit in the back of a pickup truck while a friend drives, that way you can go a long distance.

Thanks! of course when I told about shoot videos along a beach I meant a winter beach, without people around! I would never fly over people!
