The 5.8 ghz amplifier worked well on my standard.  I did not try the 2.4 for the video, since I was not losing video feed.  I was having limited range for the r/c,  and the amplifier helped with that.  I also used a stock antenna.

About 2000 feet.  Stock antenna though.  Without it,  I got one or two hundred feet on a good day.

Try a windsurfer as well, I reach 2.0 kilometer (no video loss) just with a windsurfer. If you but the amplifier and windsurfer working together I think you can reach much more.

I paid about 50 dollars.  But if you use it and something like the Windsurfer antenna mod,  you will probably get more range than you can use.  I believe my P3 Standard has a problem.  It had good range right out of the box,  but by the fith or sixth flight,  after a firmware update,  the range became very bad.
