    I have a Phantom 2 and a friend of mine has a Phantom 2 Vision +
    I noticed that the Transmitter/Receiver setup on the Vision + is perfect. No interference or static ever appears on the iPhone. When the signal is lost, you just get a message saying the signal is lost. No drama at all, on the iPhone screen.

    On my Phantom 2 setup on the other hand, as soon as I fly the Phantom 20-30 meters away, all kinds of static appears on my monitor, and the further I push it, the worst it gets.
    I would assume that with custom equipment I would get better results, but it seems that the factory equipment is better.

    I have this transmitter (http://www.foxtechfpv.com/58g-400mw-8ch ... p-544.html) and this receiver (http://www.foxtechfpv.com/foxtech-pvr58 ... -1357.html) with cloverleaf antennas.

    Can anyone suggest a good transmitter/receiver combination, that will give me good distance and no static/interference?

    You will never get the same feed quality with the P2 unless you invest in a Lightbridge. The simple fact of the matter is that the Vision uses a digital stream to send video whereas the off the shelf video transmitters people are using with P2s are analogue.

    However, saying that, it doesn't matter to most people as the FPV is just for orientation and lining up shots. For this it works perfectly even with a bit of static.

    I wouldn't use Foxtech & custom equipment in the same sentence.
