  • DVT Stick advice

    Hi guys, first post and I'm hoping I'm posting in the correct place

    I have setup my own radar with the original Raspberry Pi Model B and I just need some advice on DVT sticks.

    I have looked at the one Flightradar recommend but a friend of mine has shown me the Flightaware Pro stick which he says is better because it has the 1090Mhz filter built in with an amp.
    I have totalled it up and they both cost about the same after shipping and costs of an antenna.
    I will be using my radar in a residential area which is built up on one side and farmland on the other. I'm very new to all this so I don't know much about these things.

    Any advice would be appreciated

    I have the FA Pro stick (blue) and it works well. Depending on your location, you might want to play with the default gain settings in the receiver config file.
