Finally got the distance!! After so much trouble with signal and video loss at about 10-100 meters, I finally got it right!

1.4 km in the city, with no loss or even disturbance. Could have probably kept going for a bit longer too.

Happy :-)

I've had so much trouble with my p3s since the firmware update. So I set the dbm to 24 instead of 17. Then I got about 700-800 meters. Then this morning I made a windsurfer out of some aluminun wrapfoil and a plastic jar.

And did the flight of över 1.4 km.

Thats about it. :-)

Good to hear, so many people having problems with range and now a good story for a change.

There is a downloadable file with a foolproof way of changing the tx-power (think thats what it's called). I found it by searching for "dji standard 27 dbm" on Google.

Downloaded to pc and unzip. Followed the instruktions. Quite simple. Took about 20 min all and all.
And the surfer took Me about 3 min to make with a few kitchenitems :-)

Did the same, easy to find manual on YouTube, use "standard 27 dbi". Then download software and patch, but I still can't test it cause weather conditions.

I am not sure about phantom magic app, but tor phantom 4 u can use manual method to increase dbi. U can find manual on YouTube. But do it on your own risk.

It was pretty important that all firewalls and antivirus systems were off when performing this task.

Hi,
I have a P3S (downgraded to FW 1.5.7) and I think to dbi upgrade from long time, but I read that some RC has bricked after dbi upgrade...

So I prefer use my self-made booster and I wait that DJI replace firmware and I hope that them increase also the dbi.

For now I have the recod 1048m, please see attachment.



1048m - my record - fw 1.5.7

I flew 1.75 miles over open water yesterday with the latest firmware with my P3P.  Still had a solid signal, and awesome view on my iPad.  I think I could have went much further.  I did use a range extender that you simply slide over the antennas.  I posted the video in "video & photo" on this forum.

So did you use Papatita work? I am also having range problems and DJI insists to send the drone. But we have strict regulations in Turkey and has to pay customs clearance.

Hi.
That name sound familiar. I'll check once I get home. Byt so far It has worked flawless.
I've had four good days with this mod.
Flights at about 900-1500 meters.

@eddielindh - great to hear that you're able to get much better range. What firmware version are you on? Did you downgrade to 1.5.7 or have you stuck with 1.6.8?

I'm on 1.6.8 and downgrading the firmware always scares me. So I'd like to stay with 1.6.8 - but perhaps that's not advisable for the dbm mod....??

Cheers!
