    hi, what is the best solution to get better range on the wifi extender on my stock dji 2 vision plus. I am new to drones and I see there are lots of options so I am looking for the simplistic and the best option?

    the best solution might be pricey.
    I did a cheapo solution for about 10-15 bucks.
    I added a 6db antenna to the extender and I replaced the stock antenna on the TX with one also.
    I needed this little pigtail:

    and the antenna:

    I don't push my limits. I've had it out to about 1200 feet or so. Never lost video or control. I wanted better reliability than range.
    There are videos on you tube showing how to do this.

    Mike,
    it all depends how far you want to go?
    there are four upgrade stages available from fpvlr, stage 1 will double your out of the box experience (around $190 antenna and labor for upgrade),
    stage two will take you to 4000+ft for about $230, stage 3 and 4 are similar with stage 4 having same upgrade as stage 3 plus 2 amplifiers on the controller.
    stage 3 you're looking at 8000+ft and stage 4 10.000+ft range. stage 3 is $390 and stage 4 $560

    hope this helps
