    Can you tell us what exactly what's what ? I'm looking for something nice light and compact. Looks like that what you have.

    You need to upgrade your 5.8 I was getting the same distance with just one antenna on the repeater your wifi set up should get you at least 4000 ft

    I updated the original post with materials I used. If I have time tonight, I'll give more detail as to what I actually did.

    I have two controllers. I modded the TX antenna on one of them, but haven't tested it yet.

    The argtek repeaters sold by do cooler are fakes and the middle antenna is dead. Also they are 1000mw not 1500 as the real unit from Taiwan

    Cotto nice setup! Where did you buy most of your antennas? I really like the dual antenna set up you have on the camera. I want to do something similar as soon as I get my RP gimbal and I am able to check clearances.

    I use similar panel for the controller and a 9dbi omni for the eXtender. I get 2000 feet without issue until I yaw in either direction
    then connection will flicker but never lost.
