Alright another question for you:

Has anyone upgraded the antenna on their tx and had range either stay the same or decrease? I did this mod today on my controller after finding an open box new one on eBay for 34.00.

On the new controller, I get 1200 meters before FailSafe. On the modified one, I get about 1050-1000m. This is using a Tp-link 8dbi omni direction or an Alfa 7dbi panel. I've even replaced the u.fl RP-SMA cable just in case.

I was just expecting some gain, however marginal. I was meticulous during the removal of the silicone and the connector within the tx seems perfect.

Anyone else have a similar experience?

Hey reoscorpio I also tried the TP link 8dbi antenna I didn't get any better range over the stock antenna it was about even distancewise (is that a word) even tried a homemade windsurfer on it with the same results .It does look impressive though :)
