    So I am finally getting there. Backpack, 3 batteries and stage 2. I just ordered the rest to make it stage 4 so I should have that soon. Stage 2 is the best thing you can do for the price, it is amazing. I got out to a distance of over 8,000 ft.

    Does that mean you had FPV connection up to 8000ft turned back and still had FPV connection?
    Or you flew in a straight line until the phantom went into go home mode?

    I have stage 4 and it's ace!

    The thing I like about FPVLR antennas is that they just ooze quality. I've seen others out there that just look like the inner part of toilet rolls with ridges, whereas the FPVLR kits are neat little packages that I'm proud to have displayed on my transmitter. I'm not after massive battery beating range records, just quality goods that give me solid video and control at medium ranges. :)

    Nice. That should make for a good day, while flying high and looking down.

    Do you need full LOS for these 8000ft runs? It seems that if I go anywhere beyond even just 500 ft with a couple of trees in the way, I'll start to get laggy or disconnected FPV.

    I just installed my Turns helix for the transmitter, originally I purchased the stage 1 kit from FPVLR. I loved it so much made the upgrade to stage 2. Still need to test it, but I'm a little hesitant to push it to 8000ft or even 4000 ft. I just put to much $ into it to chance a flyaway. But I do want to give it a shot....

    I get everything(P2V+, 3 sets of props, sunshade for my phone, tx, 4 pack batteries, 2 sets of AA batteries, tools etc) in my Vanguard II backpack.

    The TX goes in the front of the backpack, I dont have a choice. There is no way it will fit in there now. Works good, just have to be cautious of nothing going on top

    Regardless of antennas 2.4 and 5.8 ALWAYS need clear LOS. No antenna or amp mods change that

    Jeff, I have that same backpack ordered. Can you unscrew your antennas and fit the controller then, maybe with a little modification to the foam? I want to get the stage 2 kit and do this, but wondering your thoughts if it would work. thanks

    I have the same setup...yes you can. If you don't mind a small upgrade to your backpack, you can trim it so that you only need to remove the upgraded antenna's, not the wifi extender. All you will need is an exacto knife or something similar with a very sharp cutting edge.
