    is there such a thing as a range extender for the Phantom 2? (NOT vision or v+. Just 2)
    Thanks for reading

    There isn't a range extender similar to what is used on the vision/vision+ for the P2 non vision. Extending the range of a P2 NV is done with high gain antennas.

    I see, thank you.
    what type of equipment is used on the v and v+ then?
    Is the antenna array less reliable or the same?

    The V/V+ are on a different frequency.
    For us NV flyers, the modification consists of removing the white controller antenna and replacing it with a wifi-router type antenna with higher gain.
    Have a look in the modifications part of this forum, there's lots of info. Youtube also has lots of tutorials.

    How far do you want to go

    The stock radio antennas are good for 4 kilometers
