Putting together an FPV system, and just curious if anyone has done range comparisons between these two? I am a Futaba user, but would consider picking up a Spektrum system if needed. For those that read this that are current Futaba users, just curious to know what RX model and what system provides the greatest range (Fasst, Fasstest, FHSS) My understanding that the FatShark 5.8 system, can outreach some of these rx units. Thanks

If you plan on going past 1 to 1.5 miles I suggest going with a UHF system instead. Check out EzUHF or the Scherrer system. Or even OpenLRS as a lower priced alternative.

Are you allowed to fly these out of visual range?

To remain covered by AMA insurance, no. To fall under your Home Owner's Liability Insurance, possibly.
