    Looks like you had a good distance flight, any mod for your antenna
    1 or 2km ?

    I use that cheapy foil covered surf thingy which fits around the antenna . That was flight one, I did another and got 3.2 miles out. video started dropping out around 3 miles. I didn't want to push my luck.

    Wow! Nice. My P3A is just as stable. It amazes me sometimes.

    In a nut shell this is it........Amazon.com: TACO-RC Parabolic Antenna Range Booster Reflector for DJI Phantom 3 Inspire 1 Windsurfer: Toys & Games

    I've never really compared with and without. I'll be going out to Safe Harbor Dam tomorrow morning. My son and his buddies go rock climbing near there. I have a mission programed into Litchi to fly around the dam. Not sure if I'm going to do it. I need to see how tall the electrical towers are
