Been flying my p4p with the dji goggles and really like them. The issue is I fly in hilly and wood type area and at about 3/4 mile away I have been loosing video feed to goggles and have to hit return home. I have tried 2.4 and 5.8 and both times when I get that far loose video. I know they say 4.3 miles unobstructed but come on 3/4 mile is subpar for what they are saying as max range. Any advice on range extenders or any help would be appreciated, thanks.

My understanding is that those systems are "line of sight" and it sounds like you're expecting it to work under circumstances it's not designed for .....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

Does yours have the parabolic range booster/extender?

They also come in one piece.

May be worth trying one out. It could be your cheapest solution.

Given, dense woods or behind a hill is asking too much out of a limited signal frequency not meant for such...as mentioned, line of sight.

You would need UHF for such and those antennas are big and bulky and the signal width gets narrower, so tracking is critical.

Flying buddy at field uses one for same model and the video reception and range he gets is pretty impressive.

I did try the Custom option today that jumps from 2.4 to 5.8 and visa versa with great success. Went behind numerous trees, houses and hills with no signal loss. Hope it stays that way. Thanks all.
