Cheap and Effective
I was a little skeptical on this thing so I started digging into the reviews and videos online with the conclusion being that for the Standard 3, the parabolic is they way to go. For $13-$18 pretty much anyone can afford this, and why not? It DOES work assuming you use it correctly. Skyreat had Z-E-R-O instructions inside the box so I relied on content from the Internet and their website. I should have dinged them a star just for that but decided not to because I was so impressed with the increase in range. I will say this, it’s IMPERATIVE that you’re constantly aiming your parabolic antenna in the direction of your drone with DIRECT line of sight, if not? Your drone could suddenly lose signal at quite some distance. Prior to the antenna upgrade I would get to about 120-125 meters before getting some serious signal degradation but with the added parabolic antenna I was able to get to around 180 meters with minimal loss and could have probably gone even higher but the area I was flying in at the time had altitude restrictions so I decided to end the test there but even so, easily a 60-70 meter increase on the first run which I thought was pretty impressive. Once I can get to a safer area for testing I’ll see what the limits are but for now? Two thumbs up!
Get at least 20% better signal.
This is a simple way to extend your radio range by about 20 to 30%, depending on several other factors, like terrain, frequency, current signal strength, interference, etc. Note: some quads now have built in limits that prevent you from flying above 400 feet and beyond 1500 feet away. A stronger signal will NOT overcome preset limits like that. It requires changes in the programming of the quadcopter, if possible.
It works for what I bought it for.
I bought this thinking it would solve the very minor glitch of weak signal from my drone. It did just that. However, since I am still fairly new to drone flying I only fly my drone within view and not beyond a half mile, if that, so I cannot attest to its range extending abilities. There are several videos on youtube where others who are better drone pilots than I am who have tested this and other range extending devices, so I would recommend anyone interested to seek those videos out.
I works exactly like it should
I do not know why some people gave this thing 1 star. I works exactly like it should. In my congested neighborhood I was only getting about 1350 ft (411 meters) of distance, give or take 50 ft and when I tried the range booster I got to exactly 2001 ft (690 meters) before I became paranoid and turned back as it was just a little speck in the sky. It could have went farther because it still had a strong signal. I cannot wait to try this thing where there is little to no other wifi signal but my tablet. This thing is great!! I recommend to all.
It works !! 😎😎🙂
Got it an extra 1,200 feet with this thing today , it’s a really windy day !!! Can’t wait to try it out on a calm day !!!!! Love it ……. I’ve also notice people saying that it won’t fit !!! Try putting it on the right way lol 😎😎😎😎…….. I’m back , this time it have gave me 4,000 more feet than usual !!!!! It’s a must buy !!! Won’t work as good if you’re facing the big trees in front of your yard !!!! My phantom 3 would usually fly a distance of 4,000 feet at the most , with this thing it goes over 7,300 feet !!! Big difference ….
Increased range by about 30%
This is extremely effective way to increase range on my phantom 3 standard. So far its one of my favorite additions. Easy to use, effective, and inexpensive. Im getting about a 30% range increase. Buy it!
Improves connection with the Phan 3 standard
This seems to work well with the Phantom 3 standard drone. I’m still learning to fly the drone and have not done one of the distance tests yet but to the best of my knowledge, it does seem to help.
