Short test today off Treasure Island using the 30 sqm KW-A kite with deflated cones. Peter flew the quadcopter with Lightbridge again. Good pace keeping up with the kiteboat, but some pixelated FPV transmission. Tested later with just the Protector, and the problem disappeared. Decided that it was likely due to interference from Peter’s Vokkero radio, possibly kiteboat interference.
Update: tracked pixelation problem to quadcopter’s inability to transmit full-HD video while chasing the kiteboat. Peter reduced the resolution and refresh rate of the video transmission and solved the problem.
