    Best Range Extender Antenna Thus Far!

    So the Argtek has served one important function for my Phantom. That is... it has enabled me to install an Alfa APA-M25 5.8ghz 10db flat panel antenna on my remote. The original argtek blue proton range extender kit was plagued by poor quality 5.8ghz antennas. However it is still completley...

    So today my Argtek Blue Proton range extender arrived. I immediately installed it and took to the skies. It had just finished raining in Watch Hill Anderson township Cincinnati Ohio where I live.

    Average factory and best modified range? On P3S

    Just bought my first DJI product. I know it's not a P4 however I am very happy with it. My only complaint is the range. I am getting a signal loss message at around 1100ft. Planning to buy a tri (2x 2.4ghz 8db and 1x 5.8ghz 10db) onmnidirectional antenna kit and install it on my controller. New...

    What is the longest distance you can see your Phantom?

    One of the general safety measures is to see the AC by your own eyes. Do you always fly like that. According to many posts here this is hard to believe. It would be interesting to see what is the longest distance at which you still can see the bird. I can see it at 300-400m depends on the...

    Weak signal at 3000 feet distance

    I've been flying my phantom 3 pro for about a year. I'm not getting anywhere near the distances of 5km, as stated in the specs. It is more like 1000 meters and I start getting a green screen and then no signal. Most of my flying has been on the coast of mexico. Where there in no electricity...

    (P3S) Loosing signal at close range even after replacing antennas

    Hello. I have had my DJI Phantom 3 Standard for about a year and a half and have had no real issues with it. I haven't flown much recently, but when I pulled it out a month ago to fly, I noticed the distance was severely impacted and would RTH while loosing signal at close ranges. I use to go...

    Is the 32 channel mod still working?

    Hi all. Just got a phantom 3adv, and works great but with some range issues. Open terrain gets 6000-8000 feet, but near more condensed areas, only about 1500ft. I know that's normal but the interference issues have alot to do with traffic on channels 13-20. I heard about the 32 channel mod and I...

    P3 Standard vs P3 SE range in the UK

    I've decided I'd like to buy a drone for recreational use and I had decided on the DJI Phantom 3 Standard. Then I noticed that the SE had been introduced with an extended range of approx 4km and 4k video - so I wanted that one. I'm a beginner but I want the best, most feature-packed drone...

    Standard Distance Won't Go Over 400-700ft

    My phantom 3 will fly around 500-700ft away before complete signal loss and returns home. The firmware is on the latest and no modifications to the controller or drone. Any help?

    Effect of warmer air

    Im wondering if warmer temperature of the air can be the cause of my drone not being able to fly as far as it did earlier this year. I know warm air or mainly hot air is lighter and the drone would probably have to work harder to remain in flight. Any help with this would be appreciated...

    Standard Limited flight using IPod touch

    Soooooo, this kind of has been making me mad. The new firmware update states that if you are not connected to the app during flight, you will be limited to a certain amount of feet for flight distance. But if you are using an iPod touch, how are you supposed to be connected to wifi (so you can...

    Some distance...

    I've just checked my DJI and Litchi files, my P3P has flown 460 km and been in the air for 36 hours in just under a year of ownership, with no issues. Like flying from Kinsale to Belfast. I'm amazed how good these things are, no reliability issues, a few small cracks round the motor mounts...

Today the weather was good but i only had 15 satellites and as I was flying with no range extender I kept getting a low signal warning at 3000 feet and with the parabolic range extender i hit 4000 feet. A few...

    Professional Phantom 3 Professional Flight Issue

    I have been flying my phantom 3 professional for about a month now. Every time I fly I try to go further but it will tell me "weak transmission signal" and the camera feed will cut out. This occurs after only about a few blocks away so less than 500 feet. I am at about 17-18 satellites whenever...
