No one mentions it much but which Transmitters have the most range on them? My Blade Sr manual says when you test the stock TX range it should work good at 90 feet. That's not a long distance. I saw a guy flying a big twin engine Plane with a DX 8 the other day and he was way up above the trees making large circles easily 5 or 600 feet from his TX maybe more.

Home flyer, Park flyer, and full size receivers and transmitters all have different ranges. Go to your manual and find out the range to your TX / RX.

Its really al about the Tx. It needs to have the pwr to get signal in range of the Rx. Range has to do with Tx strength. Any "full size" radio has got more range than would ever be needed in MOST cases. That being said the RTF Tx's are probally not "full range". If you have a "range test" button thats a good sign of full range. This button significantly reduces the Tx's output so that a "reasonable" range test can be performed. Otherwise we'd walk for a mile and call our buddy on the cell to ask if our collective was working! haha.

For giant scale plank your going to need all the distance you can get but for a heli 250 yards is plenty.

If you can't see the model its not going to matter how far you Tx can xmit anyway.

Leep things in close so you do not be come disoriented.

I have tested my transmitter and receiver for range over level terain, not flying. It was working further than I would be able to see my 700 heli, maybe a dot but would not be able to tell it's orientation.
It was at least a 1/4 mile, maybe further.
EDIT:
I just checked the actual distance and it was 3,600 feet. It was still locked in and I didn't go any further, didn't see any need.
Transmitter X9303
Receiver AR7000

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

We fly large (3 meter +) gliders on the edge of what you can see them with full range 72mhz and 2.4 systems.

If you can see a helicopter well enough to control it you're well within range.

I think modern TX's have a range further than you can see so range is not even a consideration.

Maybe I should but I don't even range check my 2.4 TX anymore.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

Yes, if there is not something wrong with the system, it will have range well out of site.

Thanks for the replys folks. I was a little concerned that my stock Blade SR TX might only have 90 feet of range.

Im not sure if thats a "FULL" range Tx. I doubt it. I have it too. Ive been further than 90 ft., but cant see it to far past 100' anyhow.
