    Guys, I have modified RC with Advanced FPVLR and now I am planning to install two antenna on my P3P to improve range.
    Can anybody help me please with suggestion or instruction how to disconnect existing antenna and connect new one.
    All comments are appreciate

    I'm pretty sure all 4 antennas on the P3 P&As transmit, so won't you need to upgrade all 4 of them?

    HorizonFPV is selling only two for that upgrade, 50/50 antenna so I am guessing which connector needs to be disconnected [​IMG]

    I went
    4,7 km and returned back with 35 % battery with FPVLR and stock P3P, however I am in process of installing additional batteries to get additional time

    From what other people say a dbs mod will give you maybe 8k without modding the uav

    I'd be dubious at this point with a 2 antenna mod on a 4 antenna system.
    Guess I'm missing something.

    Just to refresh. Horizon fpv did modify my bird with power mod v2. two saddle bag lipos 1300mA and two antennas on bird side. I managed to get 12 km with 48 % battery left IMG_6074.PNG
