I have an iris + quadcopter, have decided to upgrade the antenna on the drone and the controls to Boscam 5.8ghz cloud spirit circular polarised units. Have noticed a big improvement in the FPV monitor, but this was easy as I know the screen is the receiver and the transmitter is on the drone. I am experiencing poor pick up with the telemetry, and when I connect my phone via the mini usb all I get after flying a few meters away is Data Connection is lost message. This is so bad and happens so quickly that it renders the Tower App useless and so I can’t trust any auto missions or the follow me function. The main reason I bought this drone was for the follow me function as I want to use it when mountain biking. I suspect I am getting the Rx and Tx antenna maybe the wrong way round, but have tried various combinations and it is not improving. Is the antenna that comes out of the iris+ (I guess it is the pixhawk antenna) an Rx or a Tx? What about the unit on the back of the main transmitter (not the transmitter itself, but the telemetry part that sits on the back), is this a Tx or an Rx? And finally, the antenna that connects into my phone for the Tower App, is this an Rx or a Tx? Finally, are the Rx and Tx units specifically designed for that particular purpose, or does an Rx work as a Tx and vice versa? I know these are probably stupid questions, but if ya don’t know, ya don’t know…
OR, am I experiencing other difficulties and the crap data link connection is down to something else?
Any thoughts would be much appreciated, as I want to use the Iris+ to it’s full potential.
