I use this with an ELRS 1-watt, 2.4 GHz Radiomaster Boxer at the edge of the city. I fly at 500 Hz "full" packet rate with around 1:8 telemetry rate. I use dynamic power up to 1-watt on the Boxer, and 100 mW telemetry power from the SuperD. On a visual range test flight where I reached 2.7 km in distance, the stats for the flight were as follows:
RSSI (ELRS, so higher is better): min = -88 dB max = -25 dB average = -67 dB
Received Link Quality (dynamic power from Boxer radio): min = 53% max = 100% average = 99%
Transmitted Link Quality (100 mW telemetry back to Boxer radio): min = 20% max = 100% average = 93.05%
Boxer Transmit power required during flight: min = 25 mW max = 1000 mW average = 320 mW
Overall, I'm very pleased with the performance of this. The only reason I had to turn around at a 2.7 km distance from home on this flight test was because I lost sight of the drone (airplane). I am sure that with a lower telemetry and packet rate, I could fly even further with a better connection. Updating the receiver firmware and binding with model match and bind phrase works flawlessly. My statistics begin logging as soon as I arm the drone, and they stop running as soon as I am disarmed, so they should be fairly accurate in terms of the averages.
I don't think i've seen sub ninety seven link quality since i've had them.
The 2.4 diversity gives me about the same penetration as 915 single receiver under the forest canopy. The 915 diversity is a test in progress, it seems to never end.
My problem was quickly solved and I received a replacement part quickly. Mistakes can happen, it is about how you handle them. Iam satisfied.
Good receiver, but short antenna cable....
Is incredible to freestyle at 500hz of packet rate at 10mw and never go over -60dbm... I don't fly long range but this SuperD is my favourite rx also for small freestyle rigs. I have it on a 3.5 and i have no problems in find where to fit it.
