    What is the best and most economical way to extend my transmitter range and FPV? I have seen people talk about fpvlr and want to look into it.

    No different than setting up the FPVLR's bro !!
    When I get one of those panels all I will have to do i disconnect the one's on my TX now and slide that panel on and hook up the cables and there it is !!
    I have the same thing on mine as is shown a few threads before this one .

    I did half his hack as i'm waiting for the ebay antenna extension cable. For now, when I fly backwards (have the front of the phantom facing me), I get 30-40% additional range.

    I got FPVLR Stage 4 PV2+. Sick and tired of having to manually reconnect the wifi repeatly once out of range. I explore terrains and mountains with my drone and so my range is much less than the those who fly at open water with no wifi interference.

    I am thinking of selling my PV2+ and just get the P2 with analogue FPV. Can someone tell me will I get better range and what bugs the P2 might have that the PV2+ don't.

    Thanks
