Pretty crazy setup!! Looks like a good location as well. I think I'd be a little more limited in my area!

Post the link to your setup. This is a little out of my league now. Maybe in the future though!

Looks great. How are you recording the video and what program are you using to get the telemetry?

What percent was the battery on return?

I'm going to be buying antennas from Horizon so am very interested in your set up. Did you have amps to boost the signal or did you just rely on the antennas?

Tried out my new antenna array from Horizon FPV....
Absolutely perfect connection entire flight.

Had the usual technical difficulties again with my phone and DJI GO app freezing, so i lost my video and telemetry on the way back.
Impressive.
My only concern is that those antennas look pretty directional.
Is there any chance to find omni antennas, even if that would mean reducing their range?

I'm guessing he did not Land back at the home point. Didn't watch the whole video tho
In which case he does not have a 6.25 mile range. One way is useless the preparation and manpower would not be worth it. Still it does encourage those of us who think a mile is almost too far away.

Its batteries which limit the range. Ive done a 6 miles trip (3 miles out and back) with the normal stock antenna and all was perfect. Was past the 30% battery warning when i landed. I suspect with height I could go much much further but I would never get the bird back so whats the point?

Some guys on other tread. Not this one. I notice the use of external cables and antennas for serious performance, and they didn`t "like" it....

Sorry the OFF:

On the other side, this gentleman did take thins to another level...and a serious, scientific one..
Well done!

So glad people are still doing this stuff. You must be in a warm climate. Our weather is keeping my flights to less that 10 minutes, and lower thrust levels, just for safety purposes. Can't wait for 60 degree weather again!
