    Not sure what you mean by a few pounds but this is also pretty simple to install and makes an incredible difference. I don't own one but the guys that do rave on about them. I use a wind surfer, the cheap alternative and have noticed a big difference

    Windsurfer gets me basically to the distance where my battery is the only limitation. I've been out over 16,000 ft with full signal using it.

    I just received the Skyreat copper parabolic extender today and took a flight from my house, suburban area which is pretty populated with houses and trees and had awesome results. My previous max distance in this location was about 3100ft, with the extender I got over 6000ft away and still had pretty good signal but brought it back due to the battery running low. Can't wait to try it at the field I usually fly at later today!

    One advert would have been sufficient, no need to put exactally the same post on ever thread under 6 months old that mentions a range booster.

    Seems to be identical to the one I bought from Banggood for £3.50 (€4.5/$5). Obviously that's IM not 3D.
