    Before I bought my first Phantom I was awestruck by this guy's 2.3km flight to a cruise ship: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4dCvwIjvo0

    It was very inspiring to me at the time and I shared it with a number of friends. Having zero experience with FPV, I was amazed at the kind of range and control he had. He posted another video describing the equipment he used. It seemed complicated at the time. But now, months later, I've got a similar setup and have done many long flights over water. So this is my "tribute flight" to YouTube user carlocivicsi who got me started with this fun hobby.

    Are you using any range extenders like lightbridge or all stock?

    No Lightbridge. Using stock DJI Tx and boscam TS353 400 mW video Tx, boscam RX-5802 diversity receiver/monitor.
