There are 2 items that could help. Once being something called a wind surfer, you can actually make your own at home. I typed in DYI wind surfer for DJI into google and found something. I' made one yesterday and got an extra 1,000 feet of distance before I turned back. I'll continue to test it. Also, there is something called the "32 channel update or "hack" it makes 32 channels available to you instead of 8 (use at your own discretion). I'll test again this weekend and see how much flight distance I can get.

please note:
Opening up your controller does void your warranty, so the easy way is to do also is add in a nice Copper Parabolic Antenna Range Booster.

Others use cheap kinda like aluminum and that really make things kinda worse.

You can also make you own and get copper film tape.

Using just a basic wide plastic cup, you can play around and make your own.

Cheap, easy and does help.

True, first thing I did was get the Argtek and made a huge difference.  The DBS is better due to the dBi antennas so after i switch out my antenna I also was hitting 2 mile range.

Really boils down to how much more money you want to spend on the Standard model.  If you wind up having to shell out an extra $200.00 US to extend the range, then you might be better upgrading to the advanced or professional line.

Basically DJI does not recommend any hardware interference. Please notice that warranty will be voided by doing so. And here are the covering conditions: 保险范围.JPG

Very true.
Why I suggest if you have the standard line you might as well look for the low end extenders.

or just do a windsurfer to not void the warranty.

So what made you upgrade the pro with the DBS mod?
I still just have the standard so was curious the range improved you get now versus stock?

Big difference, I was getting 2000 to 3000 feet .  Now I don't know how far it will go but a little over 16000 is as far as My nerves can handle.

Does it offer better penetration through trees and leaves?  Does the base detach easily? it doesn't look like it would fit in my case unless the antenna base would be removed.

Thanks

All of the links to the windsurfer style (for sale) are for the Advanced/Pro. You want to get something for the single Antenna if you have a standard. Something along these lines:
