    Tried testing how many meters I would get with the Phantom Standard. I got around 630 meters max range in an urban setting. Good or Bad?

    So you just keep flying after it loses signal? I need to grow some balls, and take out of beginer mode

    Is good there IMO . I have only tried mine out a few times and got a little over 2800' at about 300' atti .
    Was little noise where I fly also .

    Yep, you keep on flying till them balls drop.. hahaha..

    Really, say you have a max range at 500 meters and get disconnected at 501 meters. All you have to do is walk 1 meter towards the direction it flew in and will or should drop to stick back to 500 meters max range and gain back connection

    So no worries flying far just do it slowly when the signal turns weak..

    The maximum I manage in a rural setting is 500m then RTH, and video signal breaks up way before that.

    Thats very good IMO........before I modded my system with DBS01, I was only getting around 1100ft maximum, which is around 335M before my signal would drop out. I'd say this was roughly at 150-200ft altitude. This is in a typical "American Suburb", definitely not the city either.
