    Hello, The D-Link DIR-510L is in my mind a very easy flying router, both batter powered and AC. From an urban standpoint with buildings and infrastructure limiting my line of flight, what would it take to use this to fly a second "repeater" drone above me to extend my line of sight once up and second out? What wireless does the built in light bridge/drone (phantom 3) run on and will this repeater or any repair be feasible?

    DJI uses a proprietary 2.4ghz frequency that cannot be boosted using network based WiFi routers

    There's no proprietary frequencies, it's the transmission and modulation schemes which makes this impractical.

    Beachdj309,

    First, Welcome to the forum. The only way that I can think of to boost the P3 signal would be to invest in either a FPVLR or Itelite(when available) system, install inline amps and put the antenna array on a 10ft light stand and raise it to the max for better line of sight.
