    Which connector inside the wifi extender on the pc board is which? Is one TX and one RX? I am kind of unclear and new to the world of antennas and RF. I have a P2V and I recently purchased the Stage 2 Kit from FPVLR but I am not seeing the video range increase I was hoping for. I have a half sphere antenna and a pinwheel antenna that go to the wifi extender but I am not sure which antenna should plug into which port. The wifi extender in the tutorial on the website is a bit different form factor so I just want to be sure which port is which.

    Also if anyone else has used this kit from FPVLR was it a good purchase? I see videos of people using 5dbi omni antennas instead and it looks alot cleaner and is far cheaper so I am just wondering if I paid too much for something that is not as effective or if I may be just hooking it up wrong. Thanks for any advice.

    Ok so I hooked up the halfsphere to the top terminal (wit terminals on your right) and the pinwheel to the top one and I acheived 1800 ft at 350ft altitude and that was with trees and buildings nearby. So it is definitely working now, FPVLR has great support as well!
