    I have trouble believing this APP does anything but rob you of $8. I'm no IT guru but I have alot of friends that are. After looking at the so called "boost" how can we be sure it's actually communicating with the Phantom ? If we are already linked to it with the repeater how can an APP communicate to it as well..... Somebody make me a believer please!

    ok, so you saw the results of the app in the original post which is here: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=13496

    are you still confused as to if it works or not?

    its called software development to develop firmware to control devices. In this case a software signal booster to control the signaling device. you are using a final product as a result of the same software development, called "DJI Phantom 2 Vision+"

    in fact a lot of standard normal day to day devices are of the same nature, Smart Phones being the most common.

    Assuming you have an iPhone, you hit the power and home button at the same time. It will take a screen shot and save it to your camera roll..

    the app isn't exactly communicating with the repeater... the app is responsible for increasing the wifi gain or signal on the phantom... and yes, the wifi gain is controlled via software, just as it is on conventional routers. This is nothing new or revolutionary. Try googling "wrt54g and increasing transmit power" and you'll find all kinds of stuff on the subject matter.

    this app works clear as day.
    you can see my results in that thread.

    i flew out as far as i could go with the stock setup, and got to about 900m, then turned on the app, and BAM i was able to get out to 1500m, before i lost TX signal.. try getting that far on a stock setup!

    Alib-did you actually fly out to the 900m and then went to the boost app while flying and went farther? Instructions for the boost app were before takeoff...it's sweet if you can do it in flight...

    It must be very clever app; by boosting WiFi signal (2.4 GHz) it will affect TX signal (5.8 GHz), too...

    Ansel,
    I made the same mistake, but you have to read it again. What he means it that the WiFi signal remained good all the way up until the distance that the transmitter signal was lost, as compared to the stock WiFi signal, which usually drops BEFORE the TX signals does. He didn't mean that he got more distance from the TX...
