Signal booster on bebop 2 and skycontroller 2 antennamod

Post by h26655728 » 23 Aug 2017, 13:36

Bebop 2 with stock hardware usually has 150-200 meter range in urban area, which is somewhat unsatisfactory . I add 2 mini wifi signal boosters on bebop with power from the drone"s battery and sma connectors installed on the controller, I can use alientech booster antenna as in the photo , or some other huge gain flat panel antenna , the range is a lot improved. Now in urban area , 2000 meter range is easily achieved without any video lag . Since the boosters on the drone drain the battery , the actual flight time is about 2 minutes less , which is totally acceptable .

Awesome mod!

Can you list what amplifier/booster you have added to the bebop ?

Did you have to disconnect the stock antennas on the legs of the bebop or is it working in parallel with booster ?
