    My first post of many to come: I have been flying for almost 2 months now and love the phantom vision except when its -20C here in Canada...someone should invent some thumb warmers when flying in these temperatures. My thumbs are still numb :p
    I think this is a GREAT forum and I have read and read and thank you to all for my education so far. Totally awesome!!
    Two things to mention:
    1) Take a look at this link for continuous power for the wifi repeater and let me know what you think?

    2) Also googles microdrones and take a look at how long the antennas are on these transmitters and on the drone itself.....gets me thinking....

    I use a similar battery to keep my extender topped off when doing long range flights. Your url has an extra 2 at the end. The correct URL is https://vimeo.com/86484902

    This is a pretty good option as well. Loads and Loads of mAH.

    I got some of this Velcro as well and it fits perfectly on the back of the controller.

    I has two outputs so you can charge the mobile computing device you use for FPV simultaneously. It's also pretty nice for charging any other microUSB device on the go.

    I keep my WiFi repeater topped up because it works better on a full charge.
