NEWS: ImmersionRC Powermeter V2.0

Any advanced RCmodelist should have a powermeter. And ImmersionRC will introduce the version V2: https://www.banggood.com/ImmersionRC-RF-Power-Meter-v2-w-Integrated-8-hour-Battery-for-RC-Drone-p-1271734.html
This kind of tool is able to measure directly the output of a VTX working in large range of carrier and not only reserved for the 5.8Ghz band. More, if you plug the provided 2dBi antenna, you can measure wireless the received signal and if you move the powermeter around the source, you can even draw a radiation diagram. With the V2, now the 30dB attenuator is internal (good point). Thanks to it, you can plug via the RP-SMA any input from -20dBm (1mW) up to 30dBM (1000mW). More there is an internal LiPo for a 8h non-stop usage. A small OLED 128×64 display is here. The V2 adds a PowerScope mode where data packets are display in time domain. In can be very usefull to check the correct behaviour of a transmission.
