I got over 3000ft last night and was still going but I gotta have the antenna pointed rite at it. So much more fun to fly with the extra range

Awesome work guys! when you range checked at 2000ft, you still had 5.8Ghz control? it reached that far??

I'm very interested in the final antenna choice, thanks so much for sharing!

Also, here are pictures of the camera pod internals, it has the same two patch type antennas and a cooling fan!

Nice work Drone-man and Uncle Fester, I'm anxious to see some detailed explanations with part numbers!

I generally get 400-500ft range on the video link. 2000 to 3000 would be great.

Uncle Fester were you using a spotter or did you fly solo? Yes, I too would love to see parts listings, URL's to suppliers and some detail on battery consumption. And BTW does someone know the stock wifi repeater's antenna angle?

ive posted pics already.parts used..........SMA female pigtail to U.FL wifi wireless antenna adaptor.............tp 16dbi 2.4g patch antenna.plugs str8 onto the mini port on repeater as for the remote on the back of it turn the screw down the right hand corner clockwise and when you turn on the remote you should hear 2 beeps instead of 1.dont try it until I get home and confirm that it is that screw!and that's its 0ver 3000ft.i think if you get a 20dbi antenna it will go even more

nah I fly it solo pretty much upto 1500feet you just have 2 have the antenna pointed in the genral direction but after that you gotta point it rite at it but that's not hard to do

2 beeps on the TX is FCC mode, 125mW output on the 5.8Ghz RC link, supposed to be rated 500M or 1,600ft. Did you have control out at 3000ft??

You have to boost the 5,8 ghz too.

Tomorrow will be a long range day.......

Do not worry, i will explain all after the exploit......
