    I know somebody was showing off upgraded SMA connectors for their DBSModded controller. Any idea on that thread or where I can get them. I'm a bit pissed that my SMA connectors from DBSMods already broke in half after a few weeks.

    Thanks!

    Took 3 weeks to get them and well worth the wait and not that hard to bend . I wouldn't want them like the stock ones .

    I had the DBS mod for 3 weeks. I flew 4 times, and the cable broke. It cost me my Phantom 3 Professional. My replacement P3P arrives tomorrow. I'm pretty upset, but I'll write a complete post tomorrow. Those cables were pretty bad. I just ordered those blue ones and they won't come for 3 weeks. Couldn't find a stateside seller. There was one person on amazon who had black versions of the cable but they were 8 inches, so I'll just get these and fly with the stock controller for the next few weeks.

    Wait, why do you have 3 cables going to your DBSMod? What's going on there?

    @dirkclod really enjoyed looking at your video wow you have gotten some distance great job on all.. I can maybe get 1600 feet with the DBS mod only because I'm in cogested Wi-Fi area park.but alot better then my original 800 feet

    I tred going the cheap route putting 3 6 dbi antennas .. worked better but no comparison to my dbs mod wow great $130. .. only lil problem i ran into is i put one of my antennas wires were my old antenna was, so the hook up on dbs i lil close ... don't want to open the transmitter again but with your right angel blu wires that will solve my problem

    Can u send me a link to the blue wires please thx

    I took my p3 standard quad apart and added 2.. 5.8 antennas to the side it Definitely helped I did not see where the 2.4 wires go? I did see the antennas in the battery box but I don't see where they get disconnected from?

    I heard clover antennas might be better ? I looked on fplvr didn't see the antennas you have

    Thanks for your help using voice dictation hope you're able to understand it

    So how did this happen (loss of P3) if the signal was lost due to a broken cable it should have gone into RTH.

    The description is correct but the photo in the link is not correct as it shows a SMA male on one end and not the RP-SMA male (no threaded nut). did you get the correct one or the one pictured?
