    Hi guys... So I have seen people mention channel hack. But not sure what it's meant to do? Does it give you better distance to fly and not lose signal? Thanks in advanced

    Thank you for the reply... I did click on the Dropbox link in one of the threads but it's a dead link. Do you know where I can get the download file from?

    Brilliant. Thank you for the link... I will try later. I did notice then when I go Into the app I have channels between 11-22 but as soon as I then the controller and phantom on that option disappeared. Hope that this will sought that out for me. Can't wait till I try it :)

    You won't notice any difference if you are getting good video signal at distance already. This hack allows you to use the upper 2.4Ghz channels that DJI should not have allowed in the first place. This does not boost the signal, it only allows you to use different channels that may not have as much interference. If you look at channels 11-22 you will probably already see channels that are just as good (20-22 are usually pretty clean).
