    RE 700. Don't get a RE 500. That's the wifi extender you want I'm guessing ;)

    Actually the 5.8 ghz receiver inside the phantom v2+ itself. I actually called UAVdirect.com who were very nice and helped me get the number. It is part #16 and the sku is PV636217469. 29.00 bucks. For some reason, in my mind, i believe it will be easier to do the 5.8 ghz antenna mod with the spare rather than the original. This way if i screw it up which there is 50/50 chance i will i can just put the stock one back in.

    Thanks for your help though because i may need another wifi extender in the future.

    I purchased one some time ago for my antenna mod project. Ordered mine from Helipal for $29. You will be bummed because the antenna are already attached with the dreaded black cement, but it will be easier and less stressful to work on removing it out of the bird knowing the original is safe.

    You are correct. I was counting on the antenna not being attached. Oh well guess its time to bust out the excato and magnifying glasses but without the stress! :). I mean for 29$ its cheap by DJI standards. This was a no brainer for me.
