    Hey! I bought this phantom 3 4k and i am kind of disappointed in the range of the wifi. I cant afford the other drones with lightbridge so its not an option. I have heard of this dbs mod that will give alot more range, but i have no experience of modding anything.. I feel like im just going to break the controller.. So does anybody have a GOOD tutorial video or can i buy modded controllers somewhere?

    It’s really easy actually but just YouTube some and it’s pretty straight forward just use a sharp knife on the silicone holding the antenna wires and get it off that way rather than rip them off... it’s an excellent addition I don’t get much for signal loss at all anymore , but this one is similar it’s a standard not a 4K but uses the same antenna, I never found one for the 4K when I looked

    I just purchased a P3 4K with the Itelite antenna mod. Seller was quite happy with it and said it definitely helped his signal issues. Not sure if he did it or had it done.

    It’s along the same lines why not just order it and install it, make a video as well!

    I'm selling my set up. It's been getting about 4,000 ft in the city. At 2,500 ft I have no line of sight do to trees and buildings. Otherwise it would be further. In the countryside areas I've taken it 11,000 ft and got scared to go farther. Selling everything for $550

    Check this thread out for the mod details.
    What is considered good range in the City?
