I have heard a lot about people installing signal boosters on their phantom 3 controllers to improve their range but I was curious if this also helps with wifi interference as I have had a lot of trouble recently with that when flying in urban areas?

Thanks!

Using an Argtek signal booster setup I have seen dramatic improvements in signal range, but the only way you'll be able to determine if WiFi interference is affected in any way would be to install a signal booster and run some tests in your area.

If you are referring to the simple signal reflectors that you place over the antenna then probably not that much in a WiFi congested areas.

I do find the signal reflector does help especially in rural environments, but when I fly in WiFi congested areas, I find that I don't see much benefit. It probably does help a bit by focusing the signal but it doesn't really help with improving the stability of the signal.

I have considered upgrading to a more robust signal booster to improve signal stability at distance and keeping VLOS but at this stage, I really don't want be spending a lot on my P3S when I can put the money toward a newer upgraded drone.

The argtek signal booster is not for sale on amazon. Where would people recommend I order one?
