    does anyone here tried to use a wifi repeater such as Xiaomi WiFi Repeater to your P3S/A bird? im just curious if this will work & improve the video downlink together with papatita mode in it.
    thanks

    While I am very clueless about "Repeaters" etc I would imagine that this method won't work on a factory DJI bird because of the continuous link (binding) the Tx to Rx requires. I could be wrong so hopefully someone who actually knows what they are talking about will reply here lol.

    Is it a mobile repeater? If yes then you´ll setup as a normal house hold repeater. But i don´t know about the signal strength about this device.

    You can do this, the limitation being that it will only improve video transmission, not control. DJI runs DD-WRT stock, the video feed is basic garden variety wifi.
