Testing distance after antenna mod to my controller. I am using omni directional wifi antenna.

Distance from takeoff: 19,494ft (3.69 miles)
Total flight distance: 39,997 (7.58 miles)

Landed with 9% battery

...FdnyFish, Nice, thx for the nfo.. 9% Batt at Landing? my P4 Shuts-OFF @10%, have
already ordered the Cables, will get Antenna's from Amazon.. the ant. you used are 7dBi
how did you come to that spec? what is the spec on the Stock DJI remote Antenna's..?
.
...I recently got 11,125ft with the stock remote and landed with approx 22% Batt, may have
been able to push it a lil further but i had a pretty stiff cross wind both directions so I played
it safe...

That looks great, Did you do a similar test before you did the mod, and if so what was the result please?

Prior test got me around 12,000ft with stock antennas.

I didn't come up with 7dbi, that's what the seller has listed. I also tried a antenna that was listed at 16dbi and the 7dbi out performed them.

I do t know the true dbi, but these grey antennas perform the best for me

Where did the custom cables come from and can you share the specifications?

I don't know about you guys, but there's something comforting to me with the omnidirectional aspect of this setup. I have hesitated in doing a mod mostly because the unidirectional nature of all the other mods scared the bejesus out of me. This one I'll do.

...Wilson, and any1 else considering this mod, the 7dBi 'Grey' antenna is NOT APPLICABLE for this setup (see image below), will it work, yes, but not well,
I will post details and data including (Long & Short) Field Tests using this antenna and using another much better choice on my web-site, this just FYI...
