    2.5km (8000 ft) flight of a DJI Phantom 2 Vision, from Nam Sang Wai (a wetland in Hong Kong) to Fairview Park (a low-density residential development) :D

    Well at least you didn't have to worry about crashing in the water :shock: :shock: :shock: . Nice flight! It would be cool to do a timewarp video and compress it to a minute or so.

    Yep that's some nice range you got there. I've as also seen amplified setups pushing past 4km but to me that's not leaving a lot of room for error if you have any problems flying back such as head winds slowing you.

    Yeah I think it's amazing what it can do. With just adding antennas to the repeater, stock P2V & TX, I flew to over 8000' today. The other day it worked even better and I got out to 9436' (almost 2.9km) before I lost control and it executed a nice RTH. And the battery life to do this easily (arriving back with still over 50%). Amazing. Look at all the recent huge flights here: http://www.flytrex.com/challenges/distance/phantom-all/

    2 LHCP antennas and 1 omni whip on a 'fake' Argtek repeater, and 2 matching pinwheels on P2V:

    NIce :) You'll do even better using a Sunhans 2.5 watt amp connected direct to your P2V range extender with one of those antennas mounted to it :)
