    Hello guys,
    Am putting 500$ USD as maximum after purchase accessories for my bird. I already got bag and lanyard and 1ft usb for ios and some filters.

    The question now: if you have the last 500$ what would you spend it on ?
    1- ipad air 2 16g wifi +4g
    2-FPVLR upgrade
    3-get extra battery

    Your decision and why?

    I would personally go with fpvlr or itelite antenna modification . If you like going out to over 3 miles and are a ditance junky like some of us . That is where I would put my money. Also with the fpvlr antenna you'll get much better penetration through buildings and trees . But if you don't want to go long , then more batteries is always a good thing. Good luck!!

    Did they have to break through the foundation inside your house? I had a similar issue and they had to cut through a section of the foundation in my house...nightmare.

    Would have been cooler to do a full speed collision with two inspires with that cash......

    Admittedly,.. That made me feel better. Not that I am happy you had to pay that much... But a good reminder it could have been much worse...
