    Not sure how it happened but the base of the antenna broke. The wire to the antenna is still intact as seen in the picture below. Is this just an easy fix with glue or does it need to be repaired? The drone still connnects to the controller and i even tested flying it. Everything was responsive
    thanks

    just curious, but how much further does one of your range extenders allow you to go?

    Thank you @flpholt !!!

    Personally don't give #'s only because environmental factors can massively impact range. (Weather, obstacles, interference, Etc)

    But have a look at the leaderboards and you will quickly see what the itelite antennas are capable of !!

    I will say that you will definitely notice the difference and won't be disappointed!

    Yep, I love my Itelite. And @flpholt is correct, it will double or triple your distance in unobstructed flight. Much better than DJI stock R/C's.

    just a standard one will work great but if you really want to go crazy get one with the amps on it
