    Will have the Dbs mod done, as of all my previous phantoms, done asap.... Hopefully by the end of the week... With 45 mph and 28 mins battery life upgrades... 6 miles should be easy

    I love the DBS mod on my P3P. I highly recommend it.

    Test range before the mod to as it has increased transmitting power from the remote.

    I doubt you are going to get 28 minutes at full Sport mode speed...

    There's a post/info somewhere that says sport mode is 18 mins.

    Can someone do a Windsurfer before test and a after DBS test? Curious to see what the difference is.

    The reason I ask is because I have a Windsurfer I used on my P3 remote and then upgraded to the ITELITE DBS-02 and did not notice any significant difference in range or penetration.

    Just watched the installation video on their site. Holy crap is that complicated. I'll be too scared to even try it.

    I installed it on my P3 controller, and it was fairly easy. Not complicated at all if you know your way around electronics.
    Though the iFixit toolkit is a necessity for this mod.
    I will definitely be installing this setup on my P4 controller.

    From what we have heard so far, you may not need to. Supposedly, the P3 controller links to the P4 with full functionality.:cool:

    My stock P3A and stock controller got 4 miles out and 4 miles back. Just sayin stock is capable of that. I added the DBS Mod anyway afterwards. But I probably won't add any modded antenna to the P4. At this point the battery is pretty much the limit.
