    Hey everyone,
    So I've had my P2V for a little while now trying out various antenna with good distance but always with LOS. I've got some waterfalls that I want to film which are very well tucked into valleys lined by trees. What are my options to keep my video transmission? My only thought was maybe buying another Phantom 2 (non-vision) and rigging up some kind of repeater that could fly far overhead the P2V and be LOS to my ground station.

    Other ideas?

    BTW,don't bother mentioning FAA regs. I know it, I get it.

    Dense foliage and valleys are going to be a monster challenge but I like your airborne repeater idea. I believe there's speculation that Team Black Sheep have used quads as aerial repeaters for some of Trappy's flying wing exploits...
