Hi I have been reading many of the posts over the last few months (very interesting and lots of information) and have decided to try posting something myself. My wife and I own a 650ha (1600acres) farm in Australia. As a surprise for Christmas she bought me a P3S. Had I known I would have kicked in the extra for a P3A but you have to be very careful not to appear ungrateful as any married man will tell you. I used to fly scale r/c models years ago until I lost an eye fencing (that’s the keep the sheep in type not the Three Musketeers type) so I am sort of familiar with a lot of this stuff. I have been extremely disappointed with the range of this thing 200m out max first 5 flights then cut back to less than 100m .I ordered and installed(with my sons help) a DBS booster . We now get 500m on a good day and 200m up .I have read about wiffi congestion but I would not have thought it was a problem out here. Although there is a tower for our local town on a hill about 5km away.The town is 11km away I would like to use the P3 to check stock water in tanks and troughs check lambing ewes, spy on my neighbors etc but 500m won’t do it . We have done everything that has been suggested to all the other poor standard owners and I know about FCC and CE (why this regulation is needed is beyond me) I have also looked into the Redbird repeater unit but suspect it would probably be illegal in Australia I did read somewhere that it could be a problem where the leads attach to the board so that even the new DBS leads/booster might not do the job since the nipple on the board is the problem. There seems to be good P3S s and bad so maybe there is something in this. Any suggestions or are we just trying to do what can’t be done ?
