You are using the same antenna panel I am. Adding amps would set you back from $100-$150 (Set). Control signal is not the issue, RX signal is all the issue, so when looking at amps, look at the specs of it's RX Db value (Higher is better). Most offer around 11-13db RX. The ones I use from RF-Linx have 20Db RX. So video feed has a much better chance of maintaining a link.
I do offer a tip: Use heavily shielded cables from controller to antenna. Those appear as RG-316. MAXXUAV sells RG-58 usually, but he is currently out of stock.
See this link: Short - High Quality Antenna Cables RG58 (3.5" or 90mm)
This is an exellent antenna as well as it's smaller brother.
(Love how you spelled "NO" on the RTH.....)

The obvious question ... not to ask ... was how you maintained VLOS. This was definitely a BVLOS flight. Did you have to do any work to authorize this flight? How did you develop the skill and COURAGE to execute such a flight?

All that being said ... WOW !!! A great video.
