    Just got an fpv setup, trying to figure out if it is worth upgrading with mushroom antennas

    Try it with the supplied but most buy some sort of clover leaf/mushroom or better antennas. Thats what I use but I am not a range junkie so I couldn't tell you how far it will go. Range is directly related to your wallet, if you've got the money you can go a long ways. ;)

    Well do you think a 20 buck pair of 5.8 ghz mushrrom antennas will get video range up to a kilometer?

    3000' or so... possibly. All depends on the components you use.

    Thats all i really need. A non-upgraded tx for a phantom 2 only has a range of 1kilometer anyways right?
