    Having had 2 birds flyaway, I have two extra repeaters.

    Anyone thought about adding an actual (second) repeater to the camera/aircraft?

    I'm not a wifi expert, it just seems like it would be possible by somehow "cloning" the second repeater from the one attached to the controller, or by getting two repeaters and the cam to chat amongst themselves.

    I haven't, on my own, been able to find away to bind two repeaters to one camera.

    It's probably possible. I've heard of people splitting power off the camera cable for a gimbal controller, and failing that you could probably just add an external battery pack if you could figure out the wiring.

    I'm willing to try to print a mount for this if someone wants to try getting 2 Vision cameras onto the same bird.
