    I'm about to place this order and wanted to run it by the forum first for thoughts.
    Will I need any additional parts? Are these pretty decent amps?

    I've gotten good feedback on here from those in the know that I don't need to power both 2.4 ports on my DBS antenna.

    Replies of experience or thoughts greatly appreciated!

    I can't recommend amps, because I just started using the 3w golds on my P3p.
    But, I will say to spend the extra 10 bucks on the Anker battery.
    I had the blue one that you have in your cart and could not stand that I could not see how charged it was. The Anker you just press the button and you can see the charge. It also is holds a much larger charge. I wish I would have known ahead of time.
    I have the blue one in a box now...

    Oh man I just ordered it! Lol. Wish I checked this post first.
    I just searched Amazon and see a few options for Anker. Are you referring to the USB charging batteries?

    I was considering installing a voltmeter inline somehow. If not, I'll just juice up the pack along with my controller battery, iPhone battery, and bird battery as party of my pre flight routine.

    Nice looking battery. I was hoping I was not going to have to break out my soldering iron for this project, but if I do that's okay too.
    I'm inder the assumption these two output plug batteries are plug n play with sunhans.
    Is this the case? Or will I have to solder on the two male plugs that came on the power adapters with the amps?

    I bought all my upgrades through MaxxUav and everything is included with the amps, adapters, etc. no soldering needed. Where are you located?

    Thanks for the reply!
    I actually ended up buying the DBS as well as the three Sunhans Silver amps. Love the setup! The range is phenomenal and I am quite pleased with the results. Have been running this setup since July. I can easily to 1-2 mile out and my record was four miles away with safe return at about 20% battery. I really just turned around because of the battery and wind that day, I could have gone further with this setup. This flight was also in suburbia with quite a few wifi and power lines around.

    How did you mount your sunhans and battery? Looking for ideas. Thanks

    Why is a Standard thread in a Adv/Pro forum? Might help the P3S owners more if located under the P3S forum.
