    I also posted this in the Phantom 2 Vision forum, but I thought it might be worthy of this section as well.

    I was planning to fly around the HS more, but noticed on the way there that I was flying with a pretty good tail wind. I wanted to be sure I made it all the way back (into the wind), so I did a full 360 (to be sure I had continuous video) then headed back. My biggest fear in doing these long range flights is running out of battery. The HS is 3km (about 2 miles) away, solid video at 640x480 the whole way.

    Thats amazing, I didn't realise it could go that far, with full FPV to the iPhone. I'm too scared to even go more then 500ft away. Hats of to you. :shock:

    Just to be sure I'm not misleading anyone. To achieve this, I made modifications, adding an antenna to the repeater and transmitter as well as an antenna and small amplifier to the P2V.

    Details of the changes can be found in my posts in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7448

    Cheers
