OK, So I got aggravated with only being able to fly about a half mile, so I broke down and ordered the parabolic range extenders to give them a shot. Well then, I walk outside and fly 1.04 miles...WHAT!! WHAT!!
Dbs Maxx will double your range, but that isn't what I'm after. I like many have issue's with loss of control and video in places I know for sure it shouldn't. Dbs will correct that. I also have times with irratic decent to the point I do not auto land anymore. The deal with the dbs install is the ribbon connector on your board are real fragile, mainly due to heat. It's an easy install u just have to be very careful and gentle. I learned the hard way cost me a remote. With all said I still plan on installing it on new remote. Just going to be more careful. I will post some pics of install and what to look for when doing it. Should have remote tomorrow, going to rain for next 3 days, so I won't install it till I fly her at least once before I take it apart. I miss my pumpkin that much.
I can't see mine a half mile out, much less a mile, I just watch my screen. I've only been a mile once, so far.I'm curious about a couple of things:
1. What limits one to about a half mile or so range? I've flown mine out to nearly .6 miles and nothing limited me except the line of sight requirement, which brings me to my next question:
2. I've had mine out, as I said, about .6 miles and could barely see it. I have 20/15 vision (with contacts). I can't imagine going almost twice as far and being able to actually see it. How do you folks that have had it out to 1 to 1.2 miles maintain a visual/line of sight on your drone?
