    Enter in the poll!
    I know one of these has been made before, but they have both been in the P1/P2 sections, and I was wondering what people have gotten with lightbridge.

    Over 3 1/4 miles one way with P4 and Inspire RC unmoded. Open wide area no interference. Not sure in the congested city area.

    there were trees all around and i usually only got 3000ft so i am happy

    At The beginning was only making about 1.1 kilometer. (Suburb area, many antennas and housing around it).
    Please don't laugh at me: I saw Tom's tech time YouTube vĂ­deo about how to make some paper and metal sheet range extenders, and I got a new record of 2 kilometers! Still could have push it for few more meters, but I chicken out when I realized how far it was:

    30,000' there and back, so 15,000' away. Litchi waypoint mission. I had 30% battery when it got home, and it was a little windy, so I could go a bit further on a no-breeze day.

    Edited after yesterday's flights. 1620 feet so far with an unmodified P3S and hilly forested suburban neighborhood with lots of high-end WiFi equipment. That was the 500m limit that I had set in the DJI Go app. I switched that off and I'll try later today (Memorial Day)

    I'm going to make a windsurfer and report back.

    On this afternoon's flights I did much better now that I disabled the max distance function. Still haven't made a windsurfer, but I got just over 3,000 feet in a suburban forested neighborhood with an unmodified P3S, flying just under 400 feet altitude.

    13,700' with my P4 when I turned around due to battery concern. That was over desert, but I'm hoping to do something similar in a suburban area stock or with windsurfers, which are on their way. Other than the 32 channel hack, which I didn't have on that 2.6 mile run, I won't do any mods other than the windsurfers for distance flying.
