Decided to flip my phone/tablet mount to see how it feels/looks and get it down away from the antennas. I actually like it better. The weight is lower so I actually keep the remote tilted up toward the drone and I still have a good angle to see it.

I did an Alfa antenna upgrade. Saw worse distance at first but came to find out the center antenna was empty. Was just a shell. Have a new replacement on the way. I also bought the Argtek to compare.

Finally received my Argtek’s and my iPad. Very well balanced. Feels great. Now if only the weather would cooperate.
