    Just finished this flight today. No amps out boosters. Only Horizon FPV antennas and power mod. 25% battery left! So plenty left to go!

    I would've been a puddle on the ground by 1+ miles. Impressive distance, but not for me. I rely on LOS more than I do the Lightbridge/screen.

    Yeah, i am always a nervous wreck, especially when I am out past the distance I know I can't afford to lose connection and it enter RTH (Return to Home). I am making a double dual array with amps, mounted on a tripod for my next flight, hopefully 6.5 miles...so I don't mess up by shaking. LOL.
