    Hi there, I'm Chris and I am relatively new here. I have a bone stock Phantom 2 V+ (version 2 not 3) and can get around 2500' away at around 200' altitude in a straight line. Not too bad. I want to obtain a range of around 2 miles (or more if possible) - and don't necessarily want to have to maintain LOS (though understand that I may have to).

    What's the best budget way to obtain these distances with control and video?

    I am running a modded Vision software on my Android which I got here and it seems uber-stable :)

    Thanks!

    -Chris

    Update - I've hit **REAL** close to 1 mile now. Getting a bit shady on these standard antennas though. I checked the other thread. I'd like a bit more education on these upgraded antennas. Would I be better off just asking the FPVLR guys?
