    Bought this because it was cheap. Will it make a blind bit of difference to distance ?

    That's weird. Works for me. It's a search for windsurfer.

    The short answer is yes, it will increase your range.

    I have that exact one... And it does a great range for me. Also looks great when you out the free dji stickers on it ;-) but there are days when I am not paying attention and end up putting the windsurfers on the wrong way round so it faces me *slaps head* lol

    I use them, not for distances but, for under 2 miles signal strength.

    I extended my range from 2 miles to 3 miles with this item and 3 miles is all I need. Well worth the $.

    I ve just done the same, 5k out over water whereas I was getting 4K previous to the upgrade.
    I still had max bars on signal strength when I RTH'd it on 58% battery life, landed with 18% left so I must have been flying into a headwind on the way out. Great value upgrade imo.
