I'm not sure how to decipher your question? The config file is hidden. If you have the download in a zip file and are using windows, unzip the file. Then go to file view and change folder and search options, then click on the view tab. Under advance, click on show hidden files and folders and uncheck hide extensions for known files types. Then you can view the Config file.

Where do you place the config file once you have it extracted in Go 4 in both Android and IOS?

Thanks

Great distance with my P4P but I do have line of site in country setting in North Alabama, No mods, no antenna booster of any kind have done this flight 2 different times, I keep my controller on auto and it chooses the 5.8 and at some point over half way there it looses connection on the video so I switch it manually to the 2.4 and it regains connection, never drop in the controller signal just the video part of it.

Here's the tradeoff on 2.4 versus 5.8 (in the USA anyway).  The 2.4 band has only THREE non-overlapping channels to chose from in the USA - 1, 6, and 11.  All the rest of the 2.4 channels overlap one of these three.  In a populated area, even a normal low population-density residential one (maybe especially in a residential area) - your aircraft and controller are going to likely have a hard time finding a good channel to communicate on.  

With 5.8 you get more "non-overlapping" channels to choose from (in a usual residential setting) - so it's much more likely that your aircraft and controller will find a relatively clear channel to use.  

So use 5.8 all the time, right?  No.  

The flip side of the coin is radio propagation characteristics.  The lower 2.4 frequency propagates better than the higher 5.8.  That's why some users report losing signal at 5.8, switching to 2.4, and regaining signal.

I also find that the "auto" mode (where you let the aircraft and controller decide to make the 2.4 versus 5.8 decision) often makes terrible choices.  My last flight was in an area where there were many, very strong 2.4 signals nearby - but the 5.8 band was wide open.  The firmware chose 2.4 and reported the "poor wifi" warning.  I switched to 5.8 by hand and had a perfect flight.

So it's a tradeoff - as most things in life are.   But if you know the good and bad points of each band, you can make better guesses about which one would work best for the flight you're about to undertake.

Are the range extenders you all are having good results from the same as the Parabolic signal range boosters that slides on antenna?

Yes they redirect the 50% signal that goes back and to the sides, say if north were forward facing, they would direct the signal that goes south , south east and south west, to north , north east and north west thereby doubling the signal strength.

If you referring to the Config file, I don't think so. This is an app config file specific to DJI GO 4 app.

I have and IOS device so you just hook up to ITunes. Get the list of apps to appear on the right side of the screen, then scroll down to the bottom and click on the DJI GO 4 app. It will then list all the files inside the app. Just paste the new config. You should get a message asking you if you want to replace it. I said yes and everything worked plus you get the extra channels.

This config file is not specific to Go4. It will work with other craft as well, on older GO apps.  @ this point you should do your own research. It is out there and can be sea urchened . If you have to ask why , then you are not deserving ...

Use 7zip or winzip on pc. On Mac, just search the internet for software to unzip files on a Mac.

With Litchi, it has the 32 channels already built in. You don't have to do anything else.

Why? what was wrong? I can help if you need it. There is one important step that nobody mentions. If you don't know how to view the file, you can't do it.

Hi Svt04Cobra,

How can I do to see the file inside the folder? I can't see it inside the folder on my Mac. Thank You.

Really? Cool. I'll have to look at that, and that may explain why I haven't experienced a transmission loss on Litchi yet (although I've been mostly using Go lately, as VCTech still haven't incorporated all of the Go features in Litchi yet).

you must tell finder to show hidden files and than you can drag and drop into itunes

unhidden via terminal or easier with one of this tools:

Pity I cant install this on my Phantom 4 Pro Plus, the built in tablet is locked down.

Can't extend the range, cant fly Litchi, in 4k 60fps the vid glitches out, can't do photomosaics without flying manual missions... and the list marches on
