    I own a p4 and im about to upgrade my range i know im getting sundans boosters.. i dont know which ones..i had a p3 and i saw where they ran 5.8 and 2.4 ..5.8 for controlling the drone and 2.4 for video .. do i need to do the same thing with the p4 or do i run two 2.4 .. because of lightbridge..? Can i run a 5.8? I live in congested area that's the main reason why I'm trying to make my signal stronger.. o and im looking for a good quality battery also if someone can give me some ideas.. the antenna will be dbs maxx Or aTerminator... i might go with the regular dbs that's still in the air as well some input on that would help my decision

    Thanks
    GrahamC

    Is this your first multi-rotor or first r/c aircraft?

    I owned the p3s and i just got the p4.. novice pilot.. I upgraded my p3s with DBS and was going to boost it but instead I sold it and got a p4 when they went on sale

    Ok. Otherwise my advice would be batteries and props before range mods.

    Spares!!!
    My advice, as well as MANY here, is use only DJI parts for your Phantom.
    It is a closed-loop system designed to work best with OEM parts. Especially the propulsion system.

    +1.

    We must have a mix-up here GC.
    There is no need to change or swap motors or props.
    Keep it 'stock'.

    Sounds good to me.. i know
    I wasn't planning to.. those motors do look sweet.. ive be a r/c guy for 25 years but only 8 months in the drone life... all im aiming for is strong connection becuase i live in congested areas
