What is the best and most economical way to extend my transmitter range and FPV? I have seen people talk about fpvlr and want to look into it.

I've got the stage 2 kit from fpvlr and use the highest preview setting but have not tested for range as i've only been out to around 3000ft, others have got up to 8000ft with this same setup although not on the highest preview.

Here is my new V3 tx with the stage 2 antenna kit.

No different than setting up the FPVLR's bro !!
When I get one of those panels all I will have to do i disconnect the one's on my TX now and slide that panel on and hook up the cables and there it is !!
I have the same thing on mine as is shown a few threads before this one .

I did half his hack as i'm waiting for the ebay antenna extension cable. For now, when I fly backwards (have the front of the phantom facing me), I get 30-40% additional range.

I got FPVLR Stage 4 PV2+. Sick and tired of having to manually reconnect the wifi repeatly once out of range. I explore terrains and mountains with my drone and so my range is much less than the those who fly at open water with no wifi interference.

I am thinking of selling my PV2+ and just get the P2 with analogue FPV. Can someone tell me will I get better range and what bugs the P2 might have that the PV2+ don't.

Thanks
