    Interesting. Did you test?
    Dis-assembles for transport? What battery did you use? If battery fails does Antenna function normally?

    I did not test yet. You can deattach the antenna for transport.

    I think the antenna will work without the extender if it fails, but im not sure.

    awesome. post results when you try. I think that just the 8db gain antenna makes a difference.

    I'd like to see a test too. first, just use the antenna-no booster-fly til fail-safe, then repeat with booster. try and maintain a fairly low altitude-like 30m, so you clear obstacles, but don't have to fly out past a mile......repeat.

    Google the phantom antenna mod. Someone extended his range x3 by just changing stock antenna to 8db gain antenna. But antenna is 3x size too. Lol

    I can imagine if we amplify with this thing it should be better.
