    I have grave doubts that the antenna listed is 20 dBi

    There are hundreds of threads discussing antennas for both 2.4 and 5.8. I suggest searching and reading some of them...

    Argtek is the worst. I bought DBS and Argtek, with the Argtek around 40M and the connection dropped. With the DBS i can handle 2000M

    I use the Argtek and have gotten about 1800M with it.

    I love my Argtek and have gotten 7,300 ft in a heavy suburban area. I must admit though, I'm looking for more distance. (I'll never be happy!) :eek:

    edit... just realized I'm in a Standard/4k thread and I have a pro with lightbridge. Sorry !!

    I ordered the kit from Maxx UAV on Tuesday. I want to see how it stacks up. I am not worried about flying it back to China but there are things I want to do over water that means needing good range, or a strong stable signal.
