Hi Guys, I after some help. I have recently made the antenna mods which seem to be the going thing for most Visions 2 + WiFi units. I have added the 2 connectors to the Range extender, and also attached the external connectors for WiFi antenna on the Vision. I have been using 6dbi antenna on the range extender and 2 dbi antenna on the vision. All Dipole at this stage. I have also upgraded the 5.8Ghz side to a flat panel antenna. My first flight was great and I managed 4,200 feet distance at 350 feet until I lost video. I had to trigger return to home to regain the unit, and never regained the video link on the return leg which was unusual. Since that flight I have lost video range and barely make 500 feet distance. The video feed goes flickery as soon as I fire up the motors on the vision, and the video feed is choppy when I have it. More than half the time when I lose video during flight I don't regain it, however sometimes I do receive telemetry. I did also have my first crash a few days before completing these mods and the camera did take a knock, but everything there appears to be fine as it moves and records perfectly. I ran a signal test as per the images below and it appears the signal from the vision keeps dropping out. To me thats not normal, but I have nothing to compare it to. The range extender appears to be fine. This was done with 2dbi antenna on all units. Anyone got any thoughts? I have also noticed the WiFi sender in the vision is very hot, but I'm guessing that is also normal to some degree. Your thoughts please.
