    @christianjou, told ya! ;) Of course, having clear terrain & clear space for miles around must help quite a bit, his S/N ratio must be superb. I really envy Uncle Fester, those high-altitude shots are awesome!

    Setting TX to CE or FCC mode, see DJI Tutorial here: http://youtu.be/tUT2jzAO81U

    It'd be nice to see a schematic of the tx.... I wonder what that pot is actually adjusting, and whether the max tx power is still being limited even in "FCC" mode.

    For example, immersion sell a 600mW 5.8 GHz transmitter module....

    I received both my antennas this evening including cables. I most likely won't have much time to mess with it until this weekend. Hopefully I will have my replacement battery by then too. I'll post my results as I go.

    omg, insane achievements (and information) abound on this thread!
    Thanks uncle fester, bigfoot (for the amazon links) and everyone for their thoughts :)
    I've also ordered the antenna and cable and hope for similar performance out of my P2V.. *fingers crossed*

    I put it all together and tried it out but I received no change from any other flight. I wonder if I'm doing something wrong

    Incredible.

    No mods at all for the 5.8 Tx signal? What is the position of the antenna? It's even blocked by the 2.4ghz repeater, like uncle fester's setup?

    THAT is FANTASTIC! Well Done sir!

    I have a quick question, how are you displaying your telemetry data combined with your picture like in the shot above?

    appreciated.

    What's your setup ? Can you post some pictures + settings you've used ? What 5Ghz antenna you have used (omni or yagi?) and did you use different 2.4GHz repeater ? or panel/yagi antenna ?

    Contemplating my external antenna setup. I was wondering why there were two antennas and wanted to see if you guys could help me out. Basically, the DJI Wi-Fi Extender should be creating two wireless links. One directional to your Phantom Vision craft, and one to your iOS/Android Device. I was thinking about doing two external antennas, but I don't need to increase the range for the iOS/Android link. Do you guys think those antennas are both for the Phantom Vision craft and there is a separate antenna for the iOS/Android link?
