    You already ask this in your DBS thread .No need to start 2 with the same thing at the same time .

    I just did 6.1 miles straight out. I found the right flying area and that made the difference

    AFAIK, the world record is 5.0 miles out and back. You're saying you now hold the world record?

    I have the itelite on my p2v, how much more FPV distance will I get if I add the fpvlr dipoles? Also is it worth swapping out the birdside 5.8 for the dipoles also?

    If you read the threads in the P2V+ antenna mods forum, they'll tell you what you can expect, provided you have the RE 700.

    Re your second question, I haven't read a post from anybody who has actually done that yet. I am planning to do it at some point.

    New update- beat my record and have now reached 39004 ( 7.38 miles) feet out and back with the it elite panel Unboosted over water. This is a p3 flight with 2 nano Tec 2200 mah strapped on each side.
    This is exceptional because this flight over lake okeechobee has no wifi, power line interference.

    Dbs mods says you can expect to triple your range with the panel under right conditions
