    I have a couple of these 2.4GHz 2 Watt Signal Amplifier for DJI Phantom 1 & 2 (White) (not from there as I paid a lot less but the same part)

    I'm hoping to mount them inside the remote and once the bulky connectors are removed there's enough space for them and a small UBEC inside. I had a little poke around when I last had it open for a switched power source to tap into but couldn't find anything.

    Has anyone supplied voltage to anything using the remote? Or does anyone have access to any kind of schematic? I'd really like to avoid an external switch to turn them on / off if possible. It would look a lot cheaper without and also would just be asking to get accidentally knocked on when there's no antenna connected!

    Well I saw some posts where people did hook up 2 sunhan amps using the battery from the remote.

    it's all I got, sorry

    Check the phantom 4 general board, there is a thread on this topic. The guy splices into the rc power just like you are looking.
