gotten bored with the limited range of the p3 standard..actualy puts me off fyling it at such limited range
so yea ive ordered the range extender,,didn't really want to start taking my controller to bits but the swap doesn't seem too bad
so yea few days will see how it does

Excellent hgg 


Hope it works, and that the range is not limited by the Dji firmware to conform to EU rules/law.
It certainly will improve the signalstrength, giving better video when flying further away.

The description at Amazone says: Full range coverage, strong and stable signal improves both remote control and Wifi video connection performance.


I found this video Cujo needs to look at, to improve the range you might need to hack the Phantom from CE protocol to FCC, also suggest to read the comments on youtube. :

i live in the uk and all i can say is wow. First off i started off with stock antenna with the phantom 3 standard i was getting around 700m in an open field on fw 1.7.9 and outside my house i was getting around 350m, so i looked into this and found the argtek with the 10dbi so installed that and outside my house was getting around 550m and in an open field on beach etc i was getting between 1500m and 2000m with choppy video feed the further out i went video feed was always fine with the argtek up to 1000m but then would get very choppy but would still go alot further but with choppy video which i didnt like. so i started googling and found the papa tita mod and was always worried about my rc overheateing or even worse bricking my bird but with lots of research i see the magic power 5x version with 24dbm gain which is what i call the sweet spot anyway i am in ce mode and currently getting 17dbm. so i did the magic power 5 mod which was so easy to do and went smoothly first time. so i took my bird out for the first time outside my front doorstep with lots of houses around me etc and all i can say is wow it was like i was flying a new bird i was flying around 1000m with silky smooth video feed didnt chop once with full signal on both rc and bird and before i could only get 350 on stock and around 550 on argtek so i recharged and went to the field and i couldnt ask for better results i would only dare go 2500m and again the video was perfect and i could of easily gone alot further also the signal on controller was full, this mod is a must especially with the argtek, thanks papa tita.

this is my setup
phantom 3 standard
fw 1.7.9
argtek mod with the 10dbi 5.8ghz antenna and 7dbi with the 2.4ghz antennas
magicpower 5.x version

hope this setup helps you guys
