So I posted in a previous thread a problem I was having with limited range on the 2.4 ghz side of my new Phantom 2 Vision +. At first I thought the problem was resolved after disconnecting and reconnecting some ribbon cables going to the gimball. And although it did noticeably give me more range than what I had, apparently it still isn't up to par with what is advertised. I was only getting around 400 foot range, then after playing around with the connectors, doubled the range to around 800 feet or so. I went ahead and installed the Itelite antenna mod and managed to get twice the distance now of around 1600 feet. But I should have been hitting this range without the antenna mod. What are the chances that either the wifi extender or the bird module is not putting out full power? My assumption is either they work or they don't. Is there a higher probability of issues with the antenna connection/panels on the bird, given the fact I've pretty well eliminated antenna issues on the controller/extender side by adding the itelite antenna mod? I've had the bird open and checked the connections going into the module but didn't see anything apparent. I didn't check the coax cables though going to the panels. I will tell you that it is very easy to tweak (break the ground connection at the pigtail) on these micro-coax cables. I did on one of the itelite cables. I found it by ohming it out. I had to peel the heat shrink tubing back and re-solder a cold solder joint. So with that in mind. I'm wondering if I should check the antenna coaxes in the bird?
