    hi im a newbie, i have a p2 avl58 miniiosd, h3-2d gopro 3+ setup, im loving this new hobby, and cant believe the quality of video from this quad, especially on an 1080 tv, youtube and vimeo just dont give it justice. however i do have a few questions, when im way out (been to 1km), and i turn 180 my fpv breaks up, is there a longer antenna for the avl58 that hangs below the gimbal setup. Also if i shake my phantom there is a slight rattle inside, is this normal, i have removed the cover and cant see anything loose, is this part of the gyro system etc, thanks , alan

    if you get some RHCP clover leaf antennas or a directional helical for further range. if you get a diversity rx and put a clover and a directional you could have the best of both worlds

    thanks for the reply, as i say im new to this, can you explain, best of both worlds, and would i have to buy new rx tx or will they just screw onto the avl58 gear i have now, any links to antenna would be great many thanks
