My original controller for my P3A has sent my P3A 3 miles out and 3 miles back without issue and there was room to spare. I haven't had any issues with the controller. I just bought and received a brand new unused still wrapped controller. I have only ensured that it links with my P3A nothing more. Both are model GL300A (USB 2.0). Which would you hack/drill to put the DBS Itelite Antenna on?
