I am also asking for feedback on how to do a "TEST" to see how far you can go... do you have spotters in a car, do you fly over a straight road.  What do you folks do to see how far you can go?

Thanks

4.2km out (8.4km round trip), no boosters or reflectors, stock P3A, over uninhabited marshland, UK, 30m altitude
Sorry, thought this was a general question. Haven't had a chance to stretch the legs on the P4P yet

**** The posts are shielded ****

I have the P4P unmodified... and one of these days I will work with some friends to see how far I can go... I live in Oklahoma (pronounced flat - as - a - pancake) so it's hard to find a spot where I can get above anything and see for any distance.  That's a great run though.... I haven't got the guts to take mine that far yet... Just can't do it

i imagine you can probably push 2- 3 miles each way, the only issue is that lightbridge is so similar to wifi you have to be mindful where you do runs at..  
also to add:  given you fly in such a flat area, pick a open spot to set homepoint at take off.. if you push your phantom too far and break range, you should be ok... it should return back to you. you should be able to regain control of it as it comes back in range and you can cancel RTH or let it finish..

Good advice... thanks.... I'll let you know when I do my run.

Hummmmm, that was my initial thought since it was listed under that tag.  But I can't stop someone from voting for their spark.

55,101' (round trip).  27,550.5' (8.4 km) at the most distant point.  Litchi waypoint flight but I had contact at the furthest point.  Stock P4 with a Windsurfer.  In the credits there is a screenshot of the mission with flight distance.

when i push it past 1000 feet it starts to automatically go into RTH mode, i can override it but the absolute max is 1600 at which point i loose video.

i dont see how people are getting these long distances. i bought rabbit ears to help, it helped in the sense i can go past 1000 feet now without RTH or video loss.
but when i get near 1400 its starts up and around 1500 its time to return it as the video feed cuts in and out too much.

so how are others get the crazy distances? note i'm in the country away from anything that could interfere. no power lines, cell towers or buildings.
