Hi I was thinking of wrapping the landing gear antenna receivers with aluminum foil to amplify the signal. Will this work like any other antenna?

Hahaha, NO! That will perfectly shield Inspire's antennas, making the drone blind and deaf ...

Thank you for reaching out to DJI Forum. With regards to this query. It is not advisable to place anything around the landing gear antenna, the aluminum foil will block/interfere with the signal. I would recommend to please follow the official DJI Tutorial video regarding the best practices when flying the drone. Thank you.

Why would you want to do this?  The range is good, and you need to fly VLOS, so amplifying the signal should not be an issue.
