Hi, I wanted to share my range extenders and device holder Mods I finished the other day. Both were and simple install by taking my time and following video instructions. It's has the look of a tricked-out contraption with the tablet. Hope she works. I'am waiting for warmer temperatures to test. I haven't read about any controller update I need with the range extender. Wonder if I need that now.

Let us know how it performs, did you do some baseline tests before the mod.

Did you have any trouble getting all the glue off the connectors?

No... it's silicone... small dab on sides connections. I did make a mistake by using a hard tool, they recommend non hard tools. I did minor mares. I used hot glue dabs to secure. My wire lengths didn't match video's lengths. There lengths matched the socket... Mine were more long. I just matched wire color to socket mentioned in video's... Easy...  It is a task removing the silicon carefully. But it does come off. Use hard plastic tools.

i did the tablet holder upgrade as well but used a inset nut to screw the part into. How is yours held in place to not wobble?

HI, I can't recall the size of the hole after centering the bracket. But after drilling... The bracket screw is self tapping, work careful turning. Over do it, it's stripped. just get the bracket threads seated.  I secured the inside shell/bracket with epoxy. I may put a dot of cyanoacrylate on the outside threads. But it's solid now.

Sorry I meant baseline range tests to compare against the new set up.

Hi, I watched that video TruG. Mine is also solid as a rock. AlanHD... I won't know a difference till spring... It's a winter kinda upgrade here. Winter brakes here in April or May. Always snowy,windy and freezing here. I liked the claims and feedback from users. So had to have it.

My understanding is the only amps that are worthwhile are the Sunhans.  I've been using them for years.  They work great.

I made the same antenna mode to my P3S. I was having all the DJI warnings of interference and found my antenna wire was broken (not the plastic) but the wire itself was only a few strands holding on.
The mode cleared up all my interference (including the neighbors wireless WiFi dog fence).
I think you will be happy with the antenna mode, I still have not had the time to check distance/range difference yet. I am just happy to not have a warning every 10 seconds!

Thank you for your response I’ve think I’ve worked it out I’ve done the magic power mod and turned up the video to 27hz when the boosters can only take as a input of 20hz
