    So this past weekend I did another Flight with my Repeater drone/ P2V combo. As usual I lost Wi Fi after 1400ft but I keep it going after I lost wi Fi signal @200ft. Altitude. But I made it about 5000ft away before I decided to turn around since I was "flying blind". I didnt have any screen display. But after I played back the SD card, I Matched the terran to google maps on the Litchi App and was able to determine distance that way. I had the Repeater Drone @ 220ft up and about 100ft off to one side of me. It did have the flat panel attatched to both 5.8REDbird and the R500 wi fi extender. Still not sure if my wi Fi issues are the tablet to repeater or repeater to camera drone, But I was able to get about 4K ft away most of the time with the flat panel running off the radio like normal. But 5K ft away at 200ft off ground over trees is dammed good, only that I need to see where Im going... LOL.
