    I have a p3 adv. I recently purchased a pair of windsurfers and found them helpful, no negative issues. What would be the next step up for increased range?
    Different antennas (helical ) on the radio???

    Thoughts/discussions????

    That's a rather pricey next step? Would I see much or any improvement switching from windsurfers to helix ant on the r .c?

    I'm not sure. The unboosted ITELITE is about $100. Most people find it doubles or triples their distance.

    I bought one, but have not installed it yet. The installation looks pretty easy. Check out the link above for more details.

    Will do. It'll probably be a few weeks as I'm waiting for the seller to get a few parts in stock that I need to do the installation.
