    YA you can do either the up graded thicker antenna mod to the FC40 or any phantom model and the foil mod also or both. Only thing to is with the fc40 you will just know your getting gps locks faster if you get the steady green led telling you its ready to take off. Tho being you have no telematry on the fc40 you will not be able to see the increased number of gps satellites it is picking up.
