So I have been watching and reading about transmissions and I have seen people make DIY parabolic range extenders I made one and it's not the best but does anyone else have custom ones they have made I'd like to see pictures and design something new. I'm using a phantom 3 standard that's why there is only 1 hole ;)

You can tune the reflector by pointing it briefly at the sun Bend and adjust it until the brightest trace is exactly hitting the antenna. This positioning is critical but they work great. Amazon has several models for about twelve bucks.
Good luck,
