    Camera lag and range loss

    Hi Folks, I know this seems to be a common problem with the latest upgrade, but has anyone come up with a solution? When i start to fly the drone (first 5 - 10 mins) the camera feedback is perfect, then it starts to lag, and can have a 2-3 sec lag on it. Also the range seems to be a lot less. I...

    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...
