Two months ago, when I published first FS1000A and XY-MK-5V range test, I was little surprised that I was able to reach 315 meters of stable connection. And I was almost sure, that they can do more.
Having some free time during my summer vacation, I've left transmitter on a towel and took a walk with a receiver. In a surroundings just like that:
Results? 332 meters with a FS1000A powered with 7.4V and 1000bps over-the-air data speed.
For the second time, I'm sure I can pull more from this setup. This time, there were two problems:
- Transmitter was low on the ground
- Other people on the beach blocked line of sight much faster than I expected
So, expect third attempt…
