    I would recommend the full solution of the DBS. I put one on my P3S as it has good range and a solid connection for both video & control. It is also a nice compact panel with no bits sticking out. I did a drill-less setup, so no additional holes in the TX (just my preference). But on the flip side, many people report good results with the ArgTek. There are a few older threads on them and some newer. Do a search on it. ;)

    wow that really helps for me.. thank you very much.. it s really hard to send the drone back to DJI from Sri Lanka because of the custom issues.. so with this signal issue, if I can get at least 500m that is enough for me.. I will try those threads you mentioned.. Thanks again.

    Yup !! Full antenna kit from DBS will make a huge difference .. And if that's not enough .. We can do boosters too !!! The p3S and p3s 4K kits will be up on our website soon !!! ;)
