    I have a pair of FatShark predator.
    Standard set up. 5.8 and 250mW.

    I'm getting max 150 meters of range.

    Any suggestions to getting more range?

    Any antennas or other easy set up that will give me more range.
    I looking to be able to go at least 600-800 meters.

    Thanks a lot.

    You can try the DJI 5.8 rx tx antennas. I use them with the 500mw DJI AVL58 tx rx and get a great pic at 900m if no obstructions, havent tried further as I am on stock radio and it loses range way before the video link. Setup is supposedly good for 1.5km and it looks like it could do that quite easily.

    These antennas will likely give the fatshark setup a helping hand, also take note that range will be cut if you lose direct los but at 150m I still get a video signal behind quite a few trees on my setup, but using the dji radio is a bit risky now that I know its much weaker then my video link I avoid areas with a weak video feed.
