Default EZ UHF controller

So as I look at going to the UHF band for flight control, it has me wondering. Does the quality of the transmitter actually matter? I have a DX8 that I do all my flying with. I have seen that several guys recommend using a second transmitter as your long range or UHF transmitter. Would it beneficial to use something like a Turnigy or HobbyPartz cheapie as my long range tx?

Your EZ won't really care what's feeding it, so the quality of your TX will matter about the same as it would running native. I can't see the necessity of buying a second TX, just to dedicate it only to UHF. Although I seem to have wound up with WAY more TXs than I need, I just mainly use one - my Futaba 14HSG - for both 2.4gHz and 433mHz. I leave the EZ-UHF module on the back and when I want to use the Futaba for 2.4, I just unplug the EZ-UHF module's power.

BTW, I had Dragon Link before, got tired of it's quirks, and switched to EZ-UHF a while back. I just wish I'd done it earlier. The EZ system is really well thought out. You'll love it, as well as the advantages of 70cm. So much better peace of mind being in clean, uncluttered licensed spectrum with the better propagation characteristics too. 73 de WH6BY

Default TX and VTX

do you need a Ham license for EZUHF ? I'm looking into switching everything over at some point on both VTX and Radio to EzUHF. Still thinking about going to 1.3 mhz for my VTX / VRX . It would be nice to not have to worry about the Ham license regardless of me being so far out in the sticks that I dont think anyone will bother me.

Bill, yes, although it's not likely anything would happen unless someone were to complain or tattle. Even them, it would most likely be in the form of a friendly letter from an ARRL Official Observer, who are hans that patrol around looking for "boot leggers". Hams are really protective of spectrum, but usually any problems are handled outside of the FCC. Although it would be best to study up and get your license, I really doubt you'd be given any grief if you just use some common sense.
